The computer may have been being used for projecting a chart or info on the wall. after 10 minutes of absence of activity, the computer will be projecting your screen saver and you will have to walk to your computer to move the mouse or hit a key on the keyboard.

  1. Hey here’s an interesting one, been searching all over but couldn’t find a solution…

    When I wake up my computer, if it get’s to the login screen and I don’t move the mouse, it will go to standby after just a few short seconds. Even if I use the keyboard to log in (double-tab and put in my password) it will still go to standby while I’m already in Windows after those few seconds have run.
