Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

Also, if I shut the computer down, completely, on occaion, when I try to log on the the interent, it won't let me and if I try to shut down to try again, it locks me in and I have to shut the computer down by pushing the on/off button, rather than using the icons to shut down.

Answers :

Sleep on Vista is a combination of Standby and Hibernate. First it will go into Standby and then later if a laptop it will go into Hibernate. Any movement of mouse or keyboard may cause it to wake up.\015\012
\015\012Some computers will wake on Lan. If you have ethernet connected this may be the cause. You can turn this off by using Device Manager - Hardware - Select ethernet adapter - driver - Advanced - look for Wake on Lan and Pattern Matching and disable this.\015\012
\015\012ALso check your BIOS settings and disable all Wake on XXX settings.
