Using power management....sleep...hibernate...other?
Using a screen saver?
If so....try turning these things off...test.
Dear CNET Members and Moderators,
My computer works fine if I do not keep it idle for more than 2 to 3
minutes. If I leave the computer idle i.e. do not perform any action or move the mouse for more than 5 minutes, it gets hanged and I need to restart the computer. I am experiencing this since a week.
Since past few months if I used to keep the computer idle for more than 5 minutes, it would take time to operate the mouse and then everything would work fine. But now, if I perform any action, say just a right click on the desktop, it will show a "busy" sign and will then hang. In this situation, my "Caps lock", "num lock" and "scroll lock" works. None other key on the keyboard works.
I work on my computer for 6 to 9 hours a day.
What should I do? I cannot figure out the cause of this problem.
My computer Configuration is as follows.
Windows XP Service Pack 2
Intel Pentium D 3.00 GHz
RAM 1 GB
Thanks a lot
