my son clicked the sleep button instead of the shut down button on windows vista home premium.
he freaked and instead of having me show him how to get it out of sleep mode,
he shut the system down by powering it off.
i have tried to restart the system several times, nothing happens.
i installed the startup disk = nothing
i have tested the power supply just in case - all works
motherboard [ asus p5l-mx ] light is on and green
i was going to pull the battery on the board to try to restart, but before i do
i wanted some others input on this situation before i tinker to much.
