    WakeUpToSleepTray

    For the last week or so, everytime I start my aging Dell Dimension 9200 Desktop computer running Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 and Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702, I get the following Error Message:

    WakeUpToSleepTray has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

    If you were in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost.


    Since I was just starting the computer, I obviously was NOT working on anything. So, I just close the Error Message withOUT any consequence.

    I have never lost anything because of this Error Message, but it is becoming a real pain to have to deal with it every time.

    Any suggestions as to what is causing this error message and how I might get it to stop occurring.

    I do have Sleep, Hibernate, etc. set to OFF in my Power Settings in the Control Panel.

    Steven,

    My guess is that a recent Windows Update has cause the program a problem. I'd suggest uninstalling the WakeUpToSleep Tray program. You should see this in Add Remove Programs. A google search tied this to SleepSeeker which is what may show up in Add/Remove Programs. HTH
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    I did in fact download that SleepSeeker program about the same time.
    It was a useless program anyway, so I just UN-installed it.

    Funny though, I also did a Google Search with the term WakeUpToSleepTray & just got some hits dated May 2013 that it "could" be a virus or something, but was not yet confirmed. It is not a virus & is from a legit company - but does seem to have some bugs (problems, not virus).
