Starting my computer

  Tycho 22:28 18 Jan 2005

My 6 year old computer running W2K has developed a slightly irritating quirk since I did a complete reinstall.

When I shut the computer down it automatically powers down. When I want to use it again I cannot press the button on the base unit as I used to. I have to disconnect the mains, wait for the power supply capacitors to discharge and then switch on again at which point it starts up normally. How can I enabel the button again?

Check you haven't got "Hibernate" selected.

No, I haven't got Hibernate checked.

What's next?
