Just had a HD crash on my laptop and had windows xp reinstalled. Now my laptop shuts down whenever I try to restore the "sleeping" laptop by touching my touchpad. The laptop will be in "sleep mode" and the screen will be off (I can tell the laptop is still on and running by the power and HD led indicators) yet when I move my finger on the touchpad, rather than restoring my session, the laptop turns off and I have to restart.
My laptop is an hp pavilion zt3000 running XP Prof with SP3.
I've tried many different permutations and settings in the "Power Options Properties" and "Display Properties." If I choose anything other than "none" for the screensaver and "never" for all of the power schemes that ask me when to turn off the monitor and HD, this happens.
I found a utility called Monoff that lets me manually shut down my monitor but it would be nice to have a working timeout/sleep function.
Thanks in advance for your help...
