So, we have this computer, its a desk computer.
The screen goes black continually. Not while we are on the computer, but after it has been sitting a minute. Usually, like on my laptop, if we move the mouse it will wake itself back up. It refuses to wake up. So we turn off the computer, wait for it to set itself up again. Is this a problem with the monitor? Or something else, is this normal?? That is my first question. I should probably post it in a different part, but maybe you can help me here.

SECOND question: So I just restarted the computer and this message reads:
The last attempt to resume the system from its previous location failed. Attempt to resume again?

Continue with sustem resume
Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu

I have had this message before and always go with Continue with system resume. If I choose the other will something horible happen?
do what you do baby!

It looks like you need to set your Power Settings.

Right click an empty spot on your Desktop, then choose Personalize. On the Personalize screen, in the lower right corner, you should see an icon labeled "Screen Saver".

Click that icon to bring up the Screen Saver window. In the drop-down menu labeled "Screen saver" you should see at least a half-dozen choices.

One of them is "Ribbons". Choose this, then click the Preview button. The small Preview window should start displaying a series of colored ribbons.

Now, click the drop-down menu again and choose "Blank". The Preview window should turn completely black. Is that what happens?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
