Hello All, Problem here.For a week now, my pc been reviving itself from sleep mode. It's all random too, it may revive itself after a few seconds, or after 30 minutes. Now, the last couple days, we i manual try to wake up my pc, no response. I can't even hit the restart button or force it to shutdown with pwr button. The only way to turn it back on is to kill the pwr to psu. Once, i turn pc back on, it takes an eternity to boot up and load everything. I can't even hit task manager to see what running while it doing its thing. The system is non-responsive for about 5 minutes!

I recently disabled anything related to WOL in my network adapter settings to see if it will fix the problem. Maybe, i can see that resolving the waking up on its own issue, but, i don't see how that would fix my other problem. Why is the reset button or pwr button non responsive when i can't wake my pc either with mouse or KB and then I'm forced to kill all pwr to MB to be able to turn it back on. strange. Also, the problem is intermittent.

Any guesses anyone?

Please and ty

Hello Soulatsea

Couple of possible causes are a bad PSU and HDD/OS issues.

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is provide the model name or series number (not serial) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.

It will also be helpful if you know and can provide us with the brand and model name or number of the PSU.
