Odd things like that happen during sleep. While we could discuss how things should work perfectly the fact is that the battery ran low during sleep and it is not reasonable to expect nothing less than a full reboot to recover.
So my question is. Does a reboot clear it up?
About losing work. If you don't save your work prior to sleep I apologize about my thoughts there. You took the chance and may lose work. For me I save my files and exit apps before sleep or hibernation. Why I do that is simple and hopefully you can understand why.
(of course we restore the AC power first.)
I have a problem with my HP G61 Laptop. If the battery gets too low and my computer puts itself to sleep when i plug it back in and return power to it the screen is covered with an assorted array of colours and what looks like white noise on a television. certain parts of the screen will move to different areas and i have to turn the computer off then back on to rid this problem? when i sleep my computer normally and wake it up there isnt a problem this only happens when the battery gets to low and it automaticly sleeps, it just worries me that one day it will happen and i will loose some important work because of it! The laptop is under a year old so i guess i still have warranty if you think it is a hardware fault?
It has a ****** intel graphics chip as i'm not a gamer or anything i just use photoshop and illustrator, i'm guessing this could be something to do with the problem - driver update maybe?
i can try and get some screen shots up when my battery runs out!
Any help would be massively appreciated!
