Had a nice little scare with the ‘puter last night. I was away for a few hours, left the computer on as usual. When I got back the monitor was in power-saving mode (amber light) as expected, but I couldn’t wake it up. Tapping the keyboard didn’t wake it up, moving the mouse didn’t wake it up, the three-fingered salute (ctrl-alt-del) didn’t wake it up.
I had to turn off the computer from the tower, wait a few minutes and back on again. Ran check disk, no errors. Everything seemed fine.
We were having a bit of a rainstorm and I’m sure I saw lightning flash in the sky. Last thing I need is to zap my entire system with a lightning strike. I looked around, couldn’t find any evidence that power had gone out. So go figure. Hopefully it was one time occurrence.
A friend pointed out that I’ve had a lot of trouble with my computer. I deny it, but the scribblings in my notebook don’t lie.
