Hello , when I left my linux box without using it directly, It goes into a "Sleep Mode" (The screen shut itself down). Then , when ! press on the space bar to make it come back, it's working 1 times out of 2. It seem like it goes into outerspace and never come back

I have to pull the plug and restart it. I can't even telnet to it when he does that. Is there a way to disabled the screen from going into this kind off "Sleep mode" ??

I've only known machines not wake up in Windows before... The easiest thing would be to disable power saving, or set it for a really long time. You might want to try playing with your kernels APM options, they're in the 'general setup' section of your kernel config.

Sorry I can't be more use!

Also check your BIOS settings to se what you can do, disable, set, etc.
