I am stumped and assuming this issue is hardware related. For no rhyme or reason, and mostly in the first 30 minutes or so of use, the screen on my Dell Inspiron 1525 will go dark and the system goes into either sleep or hibernation mode. As soon as the lights on the front are dark and the system is "off" I can push the power button and the Resuming Windows screen comes on and I am right back on the same page I was before the interruption. The only clue I have to this anomaly is it seems to happen when the screen moves or jostles even the slightest bit. But then you can open and close the lid trying to get it shut off and nothing. And there are times when it is dead still and off it goes. I know it is not a heat situation as I have had it apart and cleaned recently. I have Speccy and the temp is good. I took it apart to see if I had a loose connection but saw nothing. And if the screen connection was loose it wouldn't send the whole system into hibernation, correct?
I am at a loss and open to the amazing minds that inhabit this community. Please someone... I need to be educated!!
