i don't usually have lan plugged-in - wireless.
i've had back up scheduled as well as several other programs to do their things; ie norton scan, malwarebytes, ccleaner...
but the laptop is going to some state other than sleep that it can't wake up from.
the power light goes off and is cool to touch (this thing is never cool when on!)
*** From researching this online, though i suck at searching
it seems to be an oem dell issue, specific to my dell inspiron 1520...
I recently just did clean install of Windows 7 ult 64, which drivers were not supported, though I found some blogs that had dell supported drivers from similar model sharing hardware...
* I do recall having similar/same issue w/ vista 32 where the laptop would not wakeup.
Have read about problem being related to wireless mouse, with usb adapter.
Just yesterday for some unforeseen reason one of my usb device portbecame unrecognizable, though i tested them all and they all seem to still be working...
Sorry if typos, can't really see outside too much glare!
