Hello,
I have a weird problem. My pc just spent the last two years on 24/7.
Now when i want to try to leave it off sometimes, when i boot it up, it shows up to win2k screen, then put itself in a sleep mode. You leave it like for about 30mn ( my father would say, it's heating up), then you restart it, and then it takes you to the desktop.
Any idea what may have happenned ??

I'm new on this website, so i don't know yet how or why to assign a difficulty

Your power supply is probably insufficient or dying.  Try swapping another one in at least as strong or better.

Yvonvich,

Sounds like your pc has the sleep mode engaged.  You could check the BIOS or have an expert check or you could go into system power utilites and check if "sleep mode" is enabled.  If so, just disengage it.
