Standby of death

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In computing, the term standby of death (also SOD) refers to a problem with some electronic devices where they cannot resume after entering standby.[1][2][3] This usually requires the user to forcibly restart the device, typically resulting in the loss of any unsaved work. Although such problems have plagued standby-capable devices since their inception, the specific term "standby of death" is relatively new and uncommon.
