    WinME jumps into stand by mode

    Twice, I have been online and the system switched to stand by mode. I went into the control panel and nothing had changed. The stand by mode was set to "never" for all of the options. This has never happened before, and I have not done anything recently.

    Thanks.

    Also, if you were to upgrade from ME, would you go to 98SE or XP?

    Interesting the way you phrased this question:
    <hr>if you were to upgrade from ME, would you go to 98SE or XP?<hr>
    98 is a downgrade from ME, but since ME is such a piece of....ahem....finely engineered marketing drivel (yeah, that's it) 98 would actually be an upgrade in my mind.

    If the hardware can support XP, that's the way to go, heartache and all, because it's newer and the support is there. But 98 is still a great standby and is quite mature, if you can find a copy of it somewhere!
