    My "Sleep" button works so well that I can't wake Hamlet up again. I'm running a Win 98 SE. I have already gone into my BIOS and enable everything that had to do with power managment (quite puzzling when you really don't know what you're doing), but when Hamlet goes to sleep there's no waking him without rebooting. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

    Sleep isn't all that it is cracked up to be......I would recommend not using it........it simply doesn't work well in some situations.

    The differences between sleep and off are very subtle. A better solution is to switch off the monitor and the HDD after half an hour or so using the advanced power management.
