Dell Inspiron 1501 goes to sleep in 3 - 5 minutes
Posted on 2009-05-18
I have two Dell Insprion 1501 laptops and both have the same problem:
They go to sleep, black screen, after an undetermined amout of time. The only way to "wake them up is to hit the power button then I'm at the conrol alt delte screen and need to login again. The screen saver and power save modes are both set to a half hour or longer but the computers go to sleep after (only) 3 - 5 minutes.
I checked on Dell.com and another person reported the same problem but with no solutions.
Anybody have a clue as to what's going on?
