    Power Management

    One of our terminals received the following message - - what is it referring to?

    "The last few times your computer went on standby, it stopped responding. Would you like to prevent your computer from going on standby in the future?"

    Re: Power Management

    I've noticed at work, this is a typical Windows98 problem. What's happening, is after you've left your desk, the screen saver (normally) kicks in X minutes later. After Y minutes more, the computer enter's standby mode.

    To get the computer out of standby, you SHOULD only need to press a key on the keyboard, or move the mouse -- saying that, it doesn't always work.

    At work, we've fixed this issue by disabling the Power Settings within the Display Properties --> Screen Saver --> Power Settings dialog window. Change all the settings to "NEVER", and you'll "NEVER" have this problem again.
