    I am using a Gateway 600 Series Laptop. Whenever it goes into standby mode where it turns the screen and hard drive off, something strange happens when I bring it back up, and that is that parts of the screen are jumbled up, blurred, like the video display gets screwed up and I have to reboot the computer to make it right again.

    Any ideas?

    Only that not all hardware really likes standby mode. It should work better in laptops, but not always.

    It is worth trying the latest video drivers however, as there could be some conflict.
