hey guys,,,i left my computer on and went out. came home and the monitor was in stand by and the power led was blinking, i moved the mouse and tapped the keys but nothing happend. i had to push the power button in the back to get it started, why is it doing this? could it be the power supply?

could be lots of things, but it sounds like some of your hardware isn't totally compatible with the suspend mode. I had this happen once or twice when I had a modem in my computer. Either try to find the faulty hardware, or disable the suspend mode.

Only thing I can think is to check under device manager... under keyboard and/or mouse properties check power management and see if tis enabled for that USB device to bring the machine out of standby

check your BIOS settings as sleep modes can be set in there as well, also check you display properties as there are various sleep settings there as well other than suspend and hibernate.
