Once the computer monitor is sleeping, how to wake it?

After the screen saver and all goes off, my computer automatically goes to "sleep". Sometimes moving the mouse gets it up and runing, but others, it does not. Any ideas?

  • Press the on/off button. Not hard, not for long, just press it.

  • Jiggle the mouse

  • Move and click the left key on the mouse. That should always work.

  • Mine does the samething sometimes. Sometimes jiggling the mouse works but sometimes nothing works. Nothing on the keyboard or anything. So hopefully someone knows something.

  • Yeah when my computer's behaving, jiggling the mouse works. But when it does nothing at all, i am clueless. Gonna try the on/off button and choose it as best answer since it's something I haven't tried! Thanks all.
