Hi Guys,
dell Latitude D630. Win XP Pro.

If I leave it on overnight, downloading torrents, when I go to it in the morning I can't get it to come back to life. Hard drive light is slowly blinking so believe it is still downloading.

screen saver is (None).
power Options. when plugged in, turn off monitor after 15 Mins. turn off hard disks never. system standby after 20Mins.

hibernation is not enabled.
tried various key presses but can only ever manage a total shutdown.

What can I try next?

Set "System Standby" to "Never" for those occasions when you want to download files overnight, otherwise the machine won't have enough power to run the network overhead.
