    wake up, sleepy head

    It would seem that with a new motherboard setup this year, i would finally be able to carry out my energy-saving plan by putting my desktop on Standby/Sleep when i'm done for the night. For most in this first quarter of the year, that did work out. Although sometimes my keyboard or mouse would oddly go missing and undetected no more how many times I replug them. The only way to control the desktop is to RDC to it from my laptop and get it to reboot.

    What a fine way to save energy.

    However, the one to drop the axe on the head was my recent purchase for more storage, coming in the form of an external eSATA disk. For some reason, waking the computer from Sleep would result in flaky responsiveness from this disk.

    Yes, looks like activists against climate change can come knocking on my door soon.
