Biostar motherboard resumes power after shutdown

There is an option called Wake On Lan. Check your BIOS and disable that option. The name may differ, instead of WAN it may say PCI. Take a look.

The second part is the NIC. Look for wake up options. I'm logged in Windows right now and it has that options setting. So does iOS. I imagine so does Ubuntu. I'll check next time I reboot into Ubuntu.

2.Select properties.
3.Select "ScreenSaver".
4.Select "Power" under Monitor power option.
5.There select "never" from Turn off monitor (drop down menu).

Now your monitor will not turn off automatically.

At start up of computer i have lost my password How do I unlock it

You didn't mention what operating system you are running. I am going to guess you are running a current version of windows.

What you can try is press Control+ALT+Delete two times, and you should get a logon box. WIth any luck you can clear the user name and type in administrator and leave the password blank and try logging in. If you remember setting a administrator password enter it.

If you are able to login you can go to the control panel - users (User accounts in Vista).

If you locate the users section of control panel you can select your account and change password. Or you can create a new account to login with for now.

Hope this helps.

Ubuntu Doesn't Shut Down

do sudo gedit /ect/modules

make a new line, and add this code:

apm power_off=1

then the next time you shut down after this time the computer should be fine.
