My computer will go to sleep for no reason. It did so two minutes ago while I was using my mouse to navigate the Internet. It had power.

Also, sometimes I am suddenly unable to select anything in a workspace, or bring up the side bar when I move the cursor to it.

I am using Ubuntu 11.10 on an HP.

What happens when it goes to sleep? Does it respond to activity and come back out of sleep ok? – justingrif Feb 29 '12 at 3:21
Voting for closing since there has been no answer and very little information to help with... unless John comes up! – Luis Alvarado Mar 29 '12 at 17:01
