    Sorry 1129Texas, the initial post was meant for another thread/problem.

    To your concern, pls try:


    • unplug the Gateway desktop;

    • see if you can open the casing and reset the CMOS/BIOS (jumper method) or remove the Lithium coin type battery temporarily;

    • Leave unit at such condition for say 15 minutes;

    • restore jumper and/or memory battery and plug back the unit and try again.
    Would appreciate postback for results/updates.

    Cheers.

How do I get out of auto power saver


If your computer system goes into auto power saving mode you can get out of this state by clicking the mouse, moving the mouse, pressing enter or space. Try the wake up button if you have one on your keyboard.

You can set the setting of power saving mode by navigating to your Windows control panel and double clicking Power Options.

Under the power schemes tab select the time period to go into standby mode. Click apply and ok, when you are finished.

Take care!

Comuter will not stay in standby mode.


So why do you need the computer in stand-by mode anyway? My computers are either on or off. Off saves power and hardware.

PC WONT GO INTO STANDBY OR SCREENE SAVER OR HERBNATE


Make sure that in the Power settings of your control panel that the hibernation mode is enabled and that you have enough disk space to use it.

Check to see which mode your power button is set for as well.

She won't run


do you still have your restore CD? try to fresh restore it and updates everything on that unit again. Often online gamers send you malicious script that crashes your system.
