For bchew

These are the points for the following question.  Let me know if I did this wrong so it can be corrected:

I recently upgraded to Win98SE from Win98.  I find that whenever I leave my computer on for a long time, the screen will go blank and the computer freezes completely.  My only option is to turn off power and then turn it back on.  Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't work.  I've never been in the room when it happens.  My screensaver seems to be working and I've changed it to see if that's the problem.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It sounds like enersave mode is kicking in. Try hitting caplock or num lock and see if the light comes on/off on the keyboard. This will indicate if the PC is lockedup. Next try turning the monitor off/on and see if that restores the video.
