Recover from standby

  robert01 14:01 21 Jan 2008

I know that this is probably a very stupid question but yesterday in my hurry to shut down xp I clicked the standby icon instead of shut down. The screen went blank and nothing I did i.e mouse clicks, hitting escape, space bar, ctrl alt del could get it back - the standby light on my PC just kept blinking at me. I eventually gave up and hit the reset button, am I missing something ?

Any comments, sarcastic or otherwise are welcome.

Apart from anything else, this post is in the wrong Forum - it should be in Helproom or Absolute Beginners.

Have a look in Control Panel under Mouse and/or Keyboard. Check that at least one of them is set to bring the PC out of standby
