Re: OT: Sleep Mode (?)

Generally pressing a key on the keyboard, or clicking the mouse should
wake it up. Its called S3 sleep, and all data is in memory, just
enters a low power state

If it will only wake up for a few seconds, then goes back to sleep
again, power off the machine by yanking the mains supply and starting
it back up. I know that sleep support and hibernation is a little
flaky in Linux, on my laptops anyway so I avoid it.
