I really love these self-anointed "experts" that come here. Well guess
what, I have had a similar problem that comes and goes in spite of the
fact I have ALL my power management settings set to off and clunky old
Windows still decided once in awhile it must be tired and needs to go
to sleep all on it's own. Care to explain that Mr. Expert when all my
hardware is 100% Vista certified and I'm running the latest version of
my MB's BIOS?
I won't hold my breath waiting for any replies. Oops, I forgot this
Bozo "plonked" me already. LOL!
What I find so damn funny is these wannabe "experts" always make
veiled references to "average" users implying they know more, yet they
never really solve a damn thing. Classic and always amusing.
