Re: system hangs after resume from standby
It could be related to a fualty power supply. When in standby, the computer is using little power, then when it trys to wake up, it's pulling voltage, which the PS cannot handle. The time the computer is in standby, the PS is still active. This could explain why you have to unplug it, and wait a few seconds. How large a power supply is it, and how much hardware do you have attached, i.e. CD ROM, Floppy, how many Hard Drives, etc. If you keep having problems out of it, you may want to keep the computer from going into standby- that's only a short-term solution, as I believe the power supply is on its way out.
