IMPORTANT DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS
Select "Open" to start the install immediately. OR
Select "Save" to copy the download to your machine for installation at a later time.
this can either be disabled/enabled in your bios, or
right click on my computer->properties->hardware tab->device manager
now click the plus signs next to keyboards and mouse/poining devices. for each one, double click your device, click the power management tab and make sure there is a check next to "allow this device to bring the computer out of standby" now this will only work if you have it enabled in the bios.
go to device manager and expand the "computer" branch, if it says "standard pc" your screwed lol if it does say "advanced configuration and power interface" check if its enabled in your bios and/or control panel
that *may* be your problem
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
