I tried to change the power schemes but they don't seem to work the way I want them to.
Right now when I shut down my PC (Start>Turn off computer>Turn off computer) iit turns off normal.
When I go to restart (Press power button on front of tower) the hard drives start and the fan goes on But the monitor And keyboard do not. I then have to hold the power button down, about 3 sec., until it shuts off.
I then wait 30 sec. then hit the power button again. Now everthing boots fine.
Thanks for any help on this.
What is the best way, or standered practice, when using standby or hibernation modes?
I use my PC 2 to 3 hrs a day normaly. Should I put my system in standby or hibernation when not in use?
I tried to put my PC in what i thought was standby and hibernation but it seems that when I get email on the DSL line it wakes up the PC. This is not good in the middle of the night!
I'm running WinXP.
Thanks again for any help you may offer.
