    sleep mode for win vista

    First time user here in this forum; or any other for that matter. I have windows Vista for ops system with IE8. The issue is as follows;
    When I am finished using internet, typically I put computer into sleep mode. The towers "power" button will flash for @20 sec and then "desktop" appears their after- like it had come out of sleep mode. Does this every time I try to use sleep mode. The computer is Dell Desktop about 1 year old. My level of computer skill I would consider as advanced beginner, (if that makes any sense). Any suggestions as to how I get sleep mode to work would be apprec.

    Hello Kimber, and welcome to Vista Forums.

    You might go through the items in the tutorial below to see if it may help you find out what may be waking your computer back up. A usual culprit is the "Allow to wake computer" option checked in the network adapter's power management properties tab in Device Manager (STEP SIX in tutorial).
