Problem: Windows 98 power management problems

A lot of people seem to have trouble with windows 98 power management.
My computer tends to go into a deep sleep that may wake when I press a key but the scheduler is unable to wake the system to run tasks.

I would suggest that you check the power management trouble shooting information on Peter Forrest's web site.

There is a power trouble shooting area on the microsoft site.

You might also try asking in the usenet group

Also from a post by Peter Forrest in alt.windows98

Power Management related links.

Try the APM Troubleshooter. There is a copy on your Win98 CD
but there is a better one available from Microsoft's web site:
