Do you mean from Hibernate or Standby, or from the screensaver?
I never use hibernate or standby because I felt they were always problematical with Windows OS. I don't think they ever got it quite right.
If that's what you're using, then I would switch to a simple screensaver, set it without the option to "On resume, password protect", then turn off the screen whenever you leave the computer. Then when you return all you have to do is turn the screen back on and move the mouse or press a key.
I am having a problem with the computer not responding after I stop using it for a while. When I go back on to it the computer is on and running as well as the hard drives, but it will not respond to the key board or mouse or show anything on the monitor. I have a printer on this computer which I use as my network base. I run a peer to peer network on a few computers including my laptop. The desktops are wire connected and the laptop is wireless using my linksys router. When I use the shutoff switch to turn off the computer and turn it back on it work fine until I stop using the computer for a while. I printer will work when I hard reboot and will not when I try to come back to the computer. It also goes off the network.
I am running Windows XP pro build 2600. I have an ASUS mother board P4T-E. The processor is a 1.6 gig intel pentium 4 with a 512 secondary cache. The memory is 512 MB. I have two drives: A C drive 40 gig Maxtor hard drive running the windows software and a D drive 120 gig Western Digital hard drive storing all my data files.
I did a repair reinstalled the windows xp pro OS and it still does the same thing. Any ideas as to what is wrong?
