I have a habit of turning off my computer (sleep not shutdown) while I'm watching youtube. When I do this the computer pretends to sleep by turning off the screen, and even the hard-drive and "thinking" lights turn off. I then go to sleep for hours while the computer sleeps too. Then I wake up and turn my computer back on. Here is what I find:
- the computer mouse is often still hovering over the "sleep button" with the windows start menu up (as if it never vanished when clicked).
- You tube continues to play silently for hours.
Today I found I'd been watching hours of political videos when I was sleeping and my computer screen and sounds were off because they were in "sleep" mode. WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON? Why does sleep not mean sleep? Why does YouTube play 3 other videos when the computer is not supposed to by using it's computing power?
