Thread: Computer locks when accessing a network

    Computer locks when accessing a network

    Hello,

    My computer is becoming inactive when I try
    any network operation.
    The screen turns black and hard drive spins off.
    When I move my mouse it becomes active for a while,
    and then deactivated again.

    Please help.

    I installed a server package of latest RedHat 9.0.

    With regards,
    Zeev Lazarev

    Zeev,

    If it's Linux, you may have the APMD, Advanced Power Management Daemon poorly configured.

    Try to use the "man apmd" command to get some of the options available to you.

    You may also want to shut it off completely just to help isolate the problem better.

    Stopping it
    =======
    # /etc/init.d/apmd stop
    # chkconfig apmd off

    Starting it
    ======
    # /etc/init.d/apmd start
    # chkconfig apmd on

    It may also be some poor power saving settings in your BIOS. Check that too to make sure all is OK.
