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

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
