    See "subject" above for my question. I am severely mentally ill and this is making me worse. This error has been going on over a year. The store that "fixed" my computer is now closed and can no longer help me. My computer never went to sleep when plugged in at the computer repair place, but went back to "sleep" after I got it home and plugged it in, no matter what outlet I used in my home. It is now doing this while I am watching DVDs on my computer. Poor as ****, cannot get a new computer. Very aggrevating, very stressful. Please help. JLF

    :)
