I have ASUS A7V motherboard and 1G T-Bird CPU. When you wake the computer up from sleep it the screen comes up with wide lines and it is locked up. Any idea's setup, etc

As a rule I disable the sleep mode. I have never had a computer where this worked right.
Are you using the sleep settings in the BIOS or OS? I suggest disabling one of them if you want to use sleep mode.

what kind of video card do you have.
I had this problem then someone told me to update my NVidia Drivers to 6.49 or greater and that fixed it.

I never had any trouble with standby mode in Windows 95 but it has never worked in Windows 98SE. The monitor goes to sleep and stays that way.

AMD incompatable with sleep mode? Hmm
Update your BIOS and video card drivers
Let us know if you fix it and how.

The only OS that has worked correctly for me (in terms of APM & ACPI power management) is Win2000. Win9x never worked.
