My Del Dimension E521 running Windows 7 puts itself in sleep mode each night -- despite the fact that I have chosen a power option that specifies NEVER
Each morning I find the monitor blank and I have to hit the power button on the PC at which point Windows "resumes". The system event log shows this:
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power Date: 3/27/2010 3:21:10 AM Description: The system is entering sleep. Sleep Reason: System Idle
My specific power options are:
Turn off Display : 20 Minutes Put the computer to sleep : Never
Is there some other setting coming into play here?
