Sure didn't. Actually what I did was sit in the BIOS setup menu (f2 on the load screen) for more than 5 minutes, to see if the problem was in windows or before, like in BIOS. If it turned off in BIOS, the logic was that it was either a BIOS problem or a hardware problem. I don't know how well this logic keeps up, but after changing the BIOS idle/shutdown settings all to 10 minutes instead of 4, 3, and 10 (in vertical order), I have not had a single problem. Tomorrow night I will be upgrading my BIOS from Dell.com, as well as scanning for viruses with an upgraded scanner. But there you go... next time you see this problem, and they have already checked for viruses, and before they buy hardware, tell them to fix the BIOS settings. ^_^ If you read my earlier posts, I don't know if I fixed the problem so much as disabled the BiOS ability to deal with whatever the problem was. But, as far as I am concerned, the problem is fixed. And, it seems to come to mind that this isn't the first time I've had to do this. Although, I can't remember if it was with this computer or my ol desktop.
