This board has become so useful ...
My PC sort of goes into a sleep mode where all the power lights are still on but there is no activity and I can't wake it up. I have to switch it off and then on again. This is random and not to do with specific programs as far as I can tell.
What could the problem be?
PC Specs:
Pentium 4 3Ghz
512 dual channel memory

ATI Radeon 9800XL 128MB DDR SDRAM, 256 bit memory interface
Wireless WLAN & Network
DVD/CD rom
DVD/CD writer
Stereo TV FM Tuner
7 USB 2 ports
Firewire
6-Channel audio
56k Fax modem
Thanks,

Ok, so I checked that and everything was off 'cept hibernation so I unchecked that and we'll see how it goes. Thanx.

Ok, so it's still doing it. Do you think it's overheating? Should I be bothered buying another fan? What else could it be?
