after a period of inactivity, xp pro on dell gx620 goes to flashing yellow power light. Only way to recover is to hold power button until shutdown, then reboot. Hibernate is disabled. It has to be somewhere in the hardware, because I have several of these and only some of them do it. If I swap hard drives between them, the condition stays with the box, not the hard drive.
