Hoi

I have a recent problem with my XP SP2 machine. On this machine are several users (all family). After switching users (withour logging off) and when this second user logs off, the computer freezes: keyboard doesn't work, monitor blanks out (gets no signal, powerlight is flashing) but there is still harddrive activity (hd light flashes). If I want to get the pc working again I have to restart te d**n thing...

Anyone had the same problem and/or knows the solution?

Sounds like it might be some power settings? After reboot, have you checked your event viewer to see if anything is logged?

Will have a look in the event viewer next time (if you can tell me where to find it....). It could also be a problem with a powersavings program called "local cooling". To find out I just uninstalled it and will give it a go tomorrow.


Thanks
