    How do I get U-11.10 to recover from a 10 minute power suspend

    Next question, this one is for my Dell desktop. I have the power set to suspend after 10 minutes of non use. The question is how do I get it back on? Does shaking the mouse or tapping on the keyboard wake it up? I have to hold down the power button until the power goes off, then restart the machine, am I doing something wrong?

    It seems to be a common problem with some DELL computers; reported on a number of DELL forums. The most common "fix" I've read is to reset the power settings, reboot, and see if the machine will "wake up" from screen saver mode with mouse activity or keyboard input. If that works, then waking it from "sleep" mode should be possible with keyboard activity but not, as I understand it, mouse activity. Otherwise, sleep mode recovery seems to be possible only with holding the power button to restart the machine.
