    ACPI embedded controller Failed to respond


    I get the Red error {listed below}in the Event V when the computer is in a
    True Sleep mode. It does not happen in Hibernation or in any other
    circumstance. Would anyone have a clue how to stop this? I am not sure if
    this is part of other issues I am having (Volunteers to Hibernate after
    reviving from hibernation) , but I would rather deal with this particular
    Error now, like plugging a hole in a Dam. I average a few App Crashes a month
    but I think that’s related to my Win 3.1 Index score. I have been Goggling
    for an answer for months.

    I’m running 3.1 WinExpIndx Vista HmPre. Intel T2060, 32bit, 1014mb
