    win 8 goes to sleep (i think) and won't wake up


    I try hitting the power button, nothing. I have to restart, it takes a long time to read the hd's in bios, then when it restarts there is no network connection, so I need to restart again.

    no real pattern to this, sometimes I leave the machine on all night and no problems, other times just a couple hours and it happens.

    I am also using a wireless mouse/kb if that makes a difference.

    Hi,
    I do not have two monitors plugged in and control panel reflects that. You're saying to plug the monitor into the other jack on video card?
