    well this morning my computer did not wake up .
    it was turn off again .
    so why is it that if i click on the sleep button on my key board it will go to sleep right awy .then if i hit any key or my left mouse button after about 45 secound after it went to sleep it will wake up .
    but not after only a few minutes .
    so i guess i will play again with the setting .
    let you know
