    A Dell Dimension E521 is set to go to sleep after a while, but when I try to use it the only way to wake-up the PC is to press and hold the POWER switch on the front to reboot.

    Any ideas? I know that others had this problem. The PC is running Vista 32-bit.

    Have you gone to Control Panel - Power Options and checked your settings?

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Since you're both using Dell computers, go here and enter the 7-character "service tag number".

    It'll bring up the Dell support site that's specific only to your computer.

    You probably have some other problem(s) going on.

    tomiboi started this thread, so you need to start your own thread. Two people with 2 different computers can't be helped in the same thread because it's too confusing and it hinders the person who started the thread.
