Problem after outage
Hi, everybody. The power here flickered and went off briefly early this morning. I always have problems getting my Dell 546s to reboot properly after that happens, as the monitor light turns amber and goes into power save mode. Usually I just have to unplug the computer and plug it back in again, to get things to work again. This time, however, the power button on the tower came on amber as well.
I think that means the computer is supposed to be in sleep mode, but I haven't been able to get it to come out. Hitting the keyboard keys doesn't help, and I've unplugged and replugged the computer several times, both from the power strip and from the back of the tower. I've even tried unplugging the computer and then holding the power button down for 20 seconds or so, as I saw that suggested somewhere. Does anybody have any other suggestions for me?
