Screen Saver and Sleep Issues

On the screen saver issue, I can't say for certain but it never seems to
activate or something is waking the PC up. I've been away from my computer
during lunch and even once all night and have come back to an active desktop
(no screen saver).

On the sleep side, it appears that with 5536 USB mouse or keyboard (MS
Wireless 6000 desktop) can no longer wake up the system. I need to use the
power button to wake up the PC. This happened after manually putting the PC
into sleep mode. Have not allowed the Vista yet to put the PC into sleep
mode.

Dell 670 - dual 3.2 Xeon, 4GB RAM, nVidia Quadro 3400, SATA boot drive and
two U320 SCSI disks for storage and other oddities attached.

These kinds of issues can often be resolved by updating the BIOS. I have a
Dell Precision 450 that had the same issues you describe, and updating to the
latest BIOS solved the problems.

David,

Thanks but already on the latest BIOS for the 670. Didn't have this problem
under Beta 2.

Just another wrinkle. I have similar problems under XP32 SP2 but didn't
under XP64. Doesn't quite make sense to me but hey.

Mark.
