    My Vista PC keeps going into sleep mode, or closes down. When I start it up again, it gets to a black screen saying continue restore, or re-start. Sometimes I get a blue screen with some sort of loading message on it, but on re-booting, it's ok. I 'googled' the sleep mode problem, and on one link it said it is commonly and registry error, and I needed to download a program to fix it. Can anyone help with the solution. Thanks.

    do you want the computer to go to sleep?

    if no then change it to never. control panel. (classic view) power options.
    change when computer goes to sleep. (left pane)

    hope this helps.

    That's what I can't understand. It's never been set for sleep mode.

    The display was set to never, but the pc was set to 30mins, but I haven't knowingly changed it. Thanks for that.
