It's an HP running Vista, and now, for some reason, it puts itself, apparently, in sleep mode. Normally, when I would press the power button to turn it back on, nothing happens. Holding the power button down does not generate a hard restart. I shelved it for a few months, and just turned it on today. It booted normally, updated a few things that were out of date, and then, during dinner, apparently shut itself down again. Could not force it up. Unplugged it, removed battery, and then put it back together and it booted. I now have it in safe mode w/ networking. Not sure if it will stay on or not, but would love to work with you again to see if I can get it up to snuff. I already wiped the HD on this machine about a year ago because it had way too many issues due to crap my wife downloaded, and would rather try to figure it out.
