    Hi

    I'vw just bought a new PC (Athlon 3500+) running XP, The system when left dormant for any period (Sometime 20mins, sometime 3hrs or more) just becomes non-responsive leaving a re-boot the only option.

    Upon re-boot everything is fine (No errors, scandisk etc).

    Have I got something going on with my power management or can anyone suggest what may be happening?

    Thanks in advance

    Are you receiving any errors? When you say "a reboot is the only option"

    Is there an error telling you this, or is it just a freeze?

    Thanks for reply!


    No error messages, no nothing.... Having said that, for the first time its just hang up on me after 2 mins from rebooting. No error just completely unresponsive whilst looking at the desktop fresh from reboot. Other than the standard windows installation I've got Systemworks 2005 and ezAnivirus running plus NVidia software in syste tray. Thats the lot!

    All ideas welcome one again

    Thx
