Dell restarts after onitor reactivates

  The one and only Mr A 16:08 29 Jul 05

Recently my Dell Dimension 2300 has developed an annoying habit. I leave it switched on most of the day and after a certain amount of time idle the screensaver starts then the monitor switches off. When I come back to the machine the screen comes back on and I see the desktop and can click on things for a few seconds and then suddenly I'm seeing the start of the boot sequence. This only happens if the machine has been left idle for a couple of hours. Nothing in my power options seesm to explain this- what's going on?
