Computer Problem (Stand By Mode)
My daughter's 4 year old Dell (XP professional) has started going into stand by mode for no reason. I have the power settings set to Never go to stand by and have the screen saver turned off.
The kids in the Geek Squad don't have a clue. One suggested that I remove it from the enclosed desk so that it can get more cooling air but as soon as I set it up on top of the desk it did the same thing. However today it has been on for over 6 hours without a problem.
My research indicated that the fan may not be working but the Geek Squad kid said that the fan was still blowing and I do feel air blowing out of it.
