    Where can I get a list of event log id's?


    Right now, looking for 107. But could use a full list if there is one.

    Thanks for the help. The TechNet reference was huge but not helpful in this case. Oh, well.

    Like the man said: you have to check TechNet on an ID by ID basis. I've often wished for the galactic encylopedia of event IDs myself, and for registry keys, too, while we're wishing for the impossible. One step at a time, man, one step at a time...
    Best wishes,

    Maybe I'm having a dumb day but I can't find how to Search the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Neither Google nor Bing nor Wickipedia shed light. Did you intend to insert a link?

    Bree, forgive my inattention. I was focusing on the dark name in the image and overlooked the url. My problem was that the computer was waking a few seconds after being put to sleep (a much-discussed topic) and I had followed all suggestions with no luck. Desperate, I moved the mouse dongle from a hub to a machine usb port and since then the thing sleeps like a baby!

    I should add that there seems to be a difference between sleep when activated by a shortcut and when activated automatically by Power Options. When Power Options puts it to sleep it stays there, even with the dongle.
