Windows 7: Sleep Mode

27 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64
Sleep Mode

I cannot always get my computer to wake up by hitting a keyboard button. I will have to reboot is. Do I need to program in something? (Not to mention CTRL/ALT/DEL will not reboot my computer so I have to shut off and turn on again.)

Also, whenever my computer is off and I turn on again half the time it goes right into sleep mode. I have to use F8 while booting up and choosing Delete Restoration Data. Sometimes that does not even work.

I am also installing magic jack and apparently in sleep mode mj will not work. Can I program my computer to only go into sleep mode between say....10AM to 10PM?

Thanks - unfortunately I need some pretty detailed explanations and step by steps.
