About a week ago I found that pressing any key did not take my computer out of power save mode.  I now must press the Power Button to bring it out of Power Save mode.


I checked the Power Options, but don't see anything that might be related to this.  The Power Plan was set to sleep after 2 hours, but now I've got it set to Never.


I'm curious as to why this might have changed.


I have a Dell Inspiron 545 Desktop running Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1.
