PC goes to SUSPEND mode at its will

By akumarjain ·
On one of my client's system power management setting is set to be done by APM. It has Windows 98 isntalled. In Power Management features of win'98 its's mentioned that never go to suspend mode for all the parts i.e. video, HDD etc. etc. Still the system goes to suspend mode now and then. Even rebooting the system or leaving ot for some time does not help. Only thing that works is leave the system off for long period i.e. round 5-6 hours and then can expect some time of work.

Please help. Thanks in advance to all.

Do you have a win98 keyboard with those funny sun and moon buttons which are out of order and click themselves from time to time?

Why not tell the computer to Manage its Power through bios and choose "no power saving?"

I seen computers set with three types of power management. Sometimes they interfere with each other and cause problems.

There's power management on the motherboard (enter into the BIOS and turn it all off), there's power management in Windows (turn all of that off), and there's sometimes power management built into the computer software (some propietary manufacturer's laptops have a hibernation mode that might be set to run). For these check in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -->Software --> Microsoft --> Windows --> CurrentVersion --> Run and look for anything that may be running ("hibernation" etc) from your computer manufacturer.
