    I am clueless about these things. Here goes. I left the computer on
    overnight, and it was showing the log on screen. This morning, the computer
    was on but the monitor would show nothing. I pressed on the keyboard and
    moved the mouse, but the log on screen stayed black, save for the browser
    pointer. Any ideas why?

  2. The computer went to sleep, and like my motherboard yours can not awake the
    computer. It is likely due to an older implementation of the ACPI specs used
    by the M/B. Turn off the power and repower the computer. Disable the sleep
    properties in your power configuration.

    Thanks, Richard. Can you point me to the place where I disable the sleep
    properties? I am not familiar with it.

    Richard, I found the power configuration and it currently shows that my
    computer never sleeps ...
