Windows ME locks up Overnight

By qhcomputingny ·
Hello,
I am using Windows ME on a Novell 5 Network. It seems that overnight, if I just leave me computer on, it locks up. The next morning when I come in my mouse is locked up, (basically the whole computer is locked up). Is there any reason that this is happening? I don't have any tasks running (such as a Defragment) that would cause it to lock up. I am not using a screensaver, or anything like that to cause it to lock up. It just seems ridiculous that it locks up every night. HELP... !!! :)

If you have any APM running disable, virus scanning disable, CMOS power settings disable, backup software disable. Try one by one each night to see if it is possibly this.

Do you log out of Novell at night? If not, try logging out. Maybe Novell is trying to sync. your computer after hours.

When I got ME I used to have the same problems until I got all the patches from microsoft. Have you tried that?

Perhaps ME is attempting to set a system restore point at night, and is conflicting with the network. Try disabling the automatic backup stuff and leave it on over night.

Hope this helps
