    Every time I turn off my PC, and come back hours later, when I push the start button it turns yellow instead of green (which I assume is sleep mode). I have to keep trying and trying to restart it, I have now found that I have to put my XP disk in - then the green lite (i guess any cd would work to get something moving)- then it will start and I have to remove the XP pro disk? I have gone to power options and it is all set to default. ( turn off hard disk "NO") ( "sleep mode" "NO" )SO ??? I'm about ready to buy a new dell, this one is only year old and I love it but I don"t enjoy not being able to start it up without all the hassle. Guess I could leave it on all the time? I have processed all idle task, and gone thru the power options 20 times, I have checked the device manager to make sure it's alrite and booting to CD is enabled. -Oh and Merry Christmas and a big thank you to -
    Phantom010 - you my friend are a genius - that worked - great advice on my previous problem.
