I have had a problem with my wife's laptop, a Thinkpad x61, when doing CPU Pool mining.  It goes into sleep mode.  I bring it out of sleep and it goes immediately back in.  It will do this 2 or 3 times before it will come out of sleep mode and stay there.  I asked her if this has happened with regular use and it doesn't.

I'm using Ufasoft CPU miner.
Thinkpad X61
Windoze XP $P3

I thought she had gotten a virus on it, but it comes up clean with scans by F-Prot, MRT and Malwarebytes.

Anyone else had this problem?
Thanks,
Sam

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and Bither are OK.)

I think you can stop bothering about that.

CPU mining days are over.
With your notebook you're chances to mine Bitcoins are very small.
I guess you get something between 2 and 7 Mhash's per second.

With today's GPU cards people are mining 100 times faster then you.

P.S. A long shot but maybe your CPU is overheating and the notebook goes into sleep mode to cool down?

torusJKL,
I understand that.  But still the machine should not go into sleep mode when running the miner program.

I don't think it's temp related since the miner was only running for a few minutes.  But the machine itself had been on all day.  I did download Speedfan though to monitor temp the next time I give it a try.

At this point in time I have no machines with GPU's so CPU miners is all I have to work with until my card comes in.

Thanks,
Sam
