    I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 and whenever I close the lid and open it, or allow the monitor to go into screensaver (more than about 10 mins), the screen doesn't turn back on. I know that the laptop is still on because I see the power button on solid and I see the HDD activity light on. I have done some research and I have found out that many Dell laptops have this problem. Is there any way to fix this besides calling Dell and having them tell me that I need to reformat (because obviously I don't need to, I already have for other reasons and that has not helped). Any help greatly appreciated. Also, does anybody know how to apply this patch under Windows XP MCE 2005?
