Basicly when I want to watch tv I eather close the lid or manualy set the computer for sleep mode. So it save where I am at. Keyboard laptop light turn off and the Alienware head slowly glows off and on. Which is what it what it should do. When exiting sleep mode.
Now 15% to 20% of the time
1 The computer turns off Automaticly and when you reboot you get the message Your computer did not turn off right do you want to restart windows normaly.
2 The computer turns off automaticly and when you reboot windows starts up normal.
