Every now and again my screen displays the message "Preparing to standby". Nothing happens and everything is frozen. I have to switch off the power and switch on again to recover. Anyone know why my computer does this? OS is Windows XP Home.
Look in Control Panel, Power options. See if it is set to standby sfter a time.
Many thanks, Graham. I didn't think of that - it was set to standby after an hour. I've now set it to "Never". Will see if that fixes the problem.
