View Full Version : standby problems

My computer when put in standby comes out of it by itself. And some times (like 1 out of 50 times) it comes out of hibination all by itself.

I have had this new computer (a Packard Bell) for 7 months, and this problem has been going on from the start. It does not really bug me that much but I have never had a new computer before and don't know how big a problem should be before you take it back while still under warranty.

There are a number of things which could cause this without it being an actual fault. ;)

Does it happen when your phone rings? There is a setting which will cause the computer to wake up whan that happens.

Does it happen at a fixed time. There is a way to set that up.

Talk to your retailer about this. I don't thing it's really a warranty fault, but they might ask you bring it in so they can change the settings so it won't happen. If you are confident about using the BIOS setup, post here again, and someone will give the specific instructions.
