wake up
After not using my computer for awhile, couple hours or over nite, I cannot
wake it up using mouse or keyboard...I did not put it in sleep mode or
anything else, just walked away from it for awhile and then I have to shut it
down and restart in safe mode, it is so annoying, I have Vista 32. Please
advise. Thanks

Re: wake up
Go to Advance Power Settings.
Set hard drive to turn off a minute or 2 before sleep.
Set Hybrid and Hibernate modes to "Off"
Under USB settings select "Disable"
Under Multimedia select "Allow ....."

RE: wake up
I have a new Dell Inspiration 530 and was experiencing the same problem. I
Set the power options to never sleep, Hard drive never sleep etc. but in the
morning it was like trying to wake up my ****age son, no avail.

In one of the threads someone mentioned updating the bios. I went to the
dell site and downloaded and installed a newer update and now the problem
seems to be solved.

I haven't had time to experiment with the power settings to activate sleep
mode since I have updated bios.

Hope this helps
