OneCare restarts laptop during standby? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I often leave my laptop on standby with documents open, to save reloading everything. Never had a problem with this. Sometimes, like 1 - 3 times a month or more, I find the computer on in the morning, and it's clearly restarted as everything is closed. I can only assume it's OneCare.

    I've looked into settings but can't find anything to solve why this is happening. According to OneCare the last tune-up was 14/08/08 and the next one is 02/10/08. Any idea what might be causing the restart? How can I stop it from restarting? Sad

    Thank you so much in advance.

    P.s. I have a Dell Inspiron 1520, if that helps.

  • It isn't OneCare. OneCare will not resume a PC from standby to perform any function at this time.

    Something else is causing the issue, which, as you noted, sounds like the PC is actually being rebooted, possibly due to an error. You may want to try the Microsoft Public newsgroups here: http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/list/en-us/default.aspx


    p.s. I'm moving your post to the general folder.
