Hi,
I just reinstalled windows95  and everything seems to be working fine except one problem  After a certain amount of time of non-use, the system just halts.  When I move the mouse everything works fine..  This occurs even if I am playing a wav file, all of a sudden the system just halts and I have to move the mouse to get it started again.

Has anybody experienced and fixed this problem?

Thanks,
Arthur

vbguy...

When you say the system just halts, you propably mean the hard drive is going into sleep mode.

Is that what you want to say??

I am not sure if that is what I mean.   WHen the cpu  or harddrive halts, I move the mouse, then the screen turns black for a split seconds and the mouse pointer goes back to the center.

does this mean the hard-drive is in sleep mode?

OK. This have 90% chance for success: your halts is because of APM
(Advanced Power Management).
1) Enter Bios setup, find item Power Management and disable APM.
2) In win95 enter Device Manager (right-click on MyComputer ->
properties -> DeviceManager tab), expand branch of System devices,
find here APM (or Power Management), select it, click properties
and click on checkbox 'disable APM poll'.

Hope this helps.

I'd say 99% of working.

vbguy, have you tried timing how long it takes before your system goes to sleep??
