Disaster has struck and this is a call for backup. Yes seriously dear friends. Fortunately, all the files on my computers that matter are safely floating around in the clouds or are securely backed up on various hard drives. There is a however . . .
I own an old Vista PC that contains old files, partial stories and research and although the PC is very secure, it has a vulnerability that I discovered on Saturday evening after my daughter put the machine into ‘sleep’ instead of ‘shut down.’
The machine happily sleeps, even after I removed and replaced everything that would move, disconnect, unplug. I even hoovered out the dust (and there was enough of that to give me a new hair style). Hmmm, older daughter just said, “no dad, you have no hair, it would make you a wig though.” Ouch. Whatever, the machine still sleeps soundly.
Yes, I have trawled The Internet and while I have found some acknowledgement of the issue, there do not appear to be any working solutions. Refusing to accept that, I do believe there must be a solution out there somewhere.
Please Help. Can you think of anything that might put this problem right?
Namaste and Peace, Love and Happiness to you always,

I have had the most frustrating time today resetting my surface tablet!
It had been working fine, but suddenly began to drive us around in circles with bit lock recovery etc. I phoned technical support at John Lewis in UK who did not really solve the problem, but I ended up resetting. This was an option and I had backed up. Do you have a local expert who could advise and take you through a particular procedure?
All I can suggest…. Good luck

Hi Jenny, Thanks for your thoughts. I almost got it working but for some odd reason it’s gone into sleep mode again. I need a new laptop so it looks like I have an excuse 🙂 Most files are backed-up, just some odd writing bits n pieces that aren’t. I will find a way to transfer them. There has to be a way, it’s a windows issue rather than the hard drive. Very frustrating and almost a day without actually writing anything. Must be a message in there somewhere from out in the universe. Why are tech support never very helpful? I hope yours behaves itself.
Take care, Steve x
