My sisters computer is in Power Save Mode and the keyboard and mouse are not responding. I've unplugged everything, cleaned everything, tried different keyboards and a different mouse but still nothing. The computer was bought in 2004, does this mean she will need to get another one??

One thing you might check is the CMOS battery. That is the battery on the motherboard that is about the size of a quarter. Since the computer is that old, the battery may have lost its charge.

try a replacement,the type needed is stamped on the battery itself,it will slide out of its holder but you can bet it is in an awkward place.
