    Default SB 3 doing something weird

    Today I used my Shopbot for the first time in months. It surfaced the table just fine but I need to move the head and it move real slow and didn't go what I told it to I looked at my values and they were way off. I put the correct ones in and tried to move it and it didn't move correctly I went into setup and it was showing my machine as a Alpha but I have a standard. I had to reset all my settings. I never had that happen before.

    I've had very weird things happen to my machine over the weekend. I turn it off Friday afternoon after using it for 8 hours. It goes to sleep until Monday morning after successful shut down. Monday morning it acts very strange. Personally I think it's values getting corrupted during the shut down process. Can't isolate it or pin it down but I really don't think machine settings are getting altered when the CNC and the control computer are turned off from 6pm Friday until 8am Monday.

    I've had this happen too. What I did is screenshot every one of those values and settings screens so that I can quickly check if they are whacked out.
