another computer question

PC running Vista 64Bit when set on sleep will shut down. Is there a setting to prevent this?

Otherwise, it may be a hardware issue. Perhaps it is incapable of sleep (by design, or not).
That looks like something i should not get involved with.

I had this happen with my XP box. It was just a setting in the bios that I had to change. It was set to not allow sleep or hibernate. Once changed, all was well.

You can usually enter the bio/EFI setup when you first fire it up by pressing F12 or escape or something like that. I forget, but it usually says on screen.

What kind of machine is it, 420?
