    I have a 3 month old Systemax Desktop computer, running Windows 7 Home Pemium, which I keep on 24/7. It is set to 'Sleep' after being idle for 30 minutes A few days ago when I went to use it in the morning I found it turned off, and when I started it up I received the following message:

    "Windows saved the current session to disk because the battery reached its critical level. Before resuming Windows, the battery must be recharged or the system should be plugged in."

    This now happens every morning and after I resume Windows the system operates fine until the next morning. When I look at 'Power Options' I see options for 'On Battery' and 'Plugged in'. That's the way it's been since it was new. Since this is a Desktop computer, I have no battery so I can't charge it.

    I have a second Desktop Computer also running Windows 7 Home Premium and it doesn't show any 'On Battery' options in the 'Power Options' module. Is there some way to notify Windows 7 that the first computer is really a desktop, not a portable?

    Do you have a UPS on that system?
    If you do, try disabling it and removing the USB cable associated with the UPS.
    Also, check through your power settings.

    Clint,
    I removed the USB cable and lo and behold the 'Power Options' no longer show 'Battery Options'. I guess that could mean that the UPS battery is getting weak. I'll check it.

    Thanks,
    Ed

    Update: I found the computer running OK the next morning - 6/28/2010.
