Richard, first I would disable power management settings in Control Panel and see if it cures the problem. If it does you can go back and try to alter the setting to something that doesn't make your PC hiccup.

Might try upgrading to Win98 SE.
This issue was discussed in an old MS forum, but I can't seem to locate it...

Good luck.

I agree.

If you have the original version of Windows 98(4.10.1998), upgrade to Windows 98SE(4.10.2222). (y)

If you are using the advanced power management options(i.e. standby, suspend, sleep, hibernate, etc.), turn them off. Your computer will run better and have less problems. (y) The steps for turning off the A.P.M. options are here.
