I switched the PC off yesterday, a normal shutdown, but when I swiched it on today the system power LED was flashing which, according to the manual, indicates that the computer is in sleep mode.
A very deep sleep, cos' it will not wake up.
I was wondering if anyone here had came across this before.
System specs
Asus P5K WS
E8400 not overclocked (yet)
4Gb DDR2 800
N Videa 8500 graphics

Hi Fruit Bat /\0/\
I tried that, but, perhaps not for long enough.
I'll give it another try and let you know.

Cheers Fruit Bat.
It took a lot more than 30 secs. but I got it.
After about 20 to 25 secs the flashes slowly slowed down. After about 60 secs they stopped but started again when I let the button go. Two tries later it started.
Now I just have to find out whats going on. Definately something wrong in there.
I'll leave it unticked for a while in case anyone can give me any clues.
Thanks again.
