    hibernation/standby

    Hey Guys,
    Was wondering, how do I get out of hibernation/standby mode?

    Got a new keyboard that has the sleep button, I want to start utilizing that feature.

    Thanks.

    Does pressing the sleep button again not work? Try pressing the standby button on your pc or power button if you havent got one.

    Hmm, I think I remember using this feature some time ago..I believe when I was connected to ICQ, and I left it to sleep overnight, when I woke up, the ICQ list was very outdated...people that were online that evening were showing, so i had to disconnect and then connect again...

    Does it cause some programs that utilize the internet to lag a bit?

    That's right! The older you get, the less you sleep
