Re: Unable to sleep at all - Power off every time
What mother board do you have?
I have an Abit AB9 Pro. When I would try to put my XP Home Premium into
sleep "Suspend to RAM" (STR), it would just restart.
In my BIOS I had to go to Power Management and under ACPI Suspend Type
disable "Resume by USB from S3".
Now my sleep works just fine. Maybe you can fine something in your BIOS such
as this that may correct your problem.
