reboot

Automatically Turn On PC After Shutdown During Remote Work.

A lot of us are remoting into our work PCs these days (for safety WFH reasons), but what do we do when our computer inadvertently shuts down and can't be rebooted without a physical power button press? Take a look at the BIOS settings and search for power management options. Locate a setting for "Reboot/Restore On Power Loss" or something similarly named. BIOS settings depend on the manufacturer of the personal computer, so you might have to wiggle around for the exact name of the option.

Why does my computer freeze up?

Episode 1463

Jim from Laytonsville, MD

Jim has a Windows 7 computer and about two months ago it started messing up his mouse, which freezes up anywhere from a few seconds up to 5 minutes. It usually happens after checking his email and then going online for a while. Then he exits out and the mouse freezes and he has to reboot. Leo says that there's probably something running in the background that's slowing down his computer and causing processes to back up. Leo suggests trying another browser, like Google Chrome.
