recently i am experiencing strange problems.
it started with my vista 32 so i formatted and reinstalled,
then it came back and now it's occurring on my XP SP3.

under vista i used to log off and my computer went into "power saving mode" and stayed there, moving the mouse or pressing the keyboard had no effect, the screen would remain black. then i would restart my computer and there would be no boot screen just the message "power save mode" and then after two three minutes the screen would turn on and my desktop gets visible.

now under xp (happened after a week of use) when i restart my computer it also goes into power save mode and the screen remains black thru the entire boot process (very annoying).
from time to time i do get to see the windows login logo,the problem comes and goes,
any idea what it could be?

my montor is:
lg L226WTQ

and i have Asus geforce 7950GT graphic card
with nvidia 178.24 driver

10x in advance

So the vista and xp are the same box/

go into your bios and change the power settings to your liking.

Is your computer a desktop or a laptop? If it's the latter how often do you charge your battery? Do you see this problem even if the laptop is plugged in?
