I am not sure if this is the right place to post this but here it is. I have an IBM Thinkpad R60 running with Windows XP. Whenever I close the lid to my laptop and reopen it it doesn't work properly (programs wont open mostly). Its done this for quite a while and I have just had to restart it almost every time I reopen it. Anyone know how I can fix this problem? I would like to still be able to close the laptop and use standby mode.

Have you defragmented your hard drive recently?

Have you scanned for viruses and other forms of spyware and malware?

I am using Malwarebytes, Adaware, and Avira anti-virus. I defrag my hard drive fairly often (once a month or so) and have done it in the last two weeks. This has been going on for a few years now so it isn't something that has just started happening. Thanks for the reply ;)

I'm not really too sure then. If you really want to fix this problem, you could reinstall Windows and see if that solves the problem. If it doesn't, then it's most likely a hardware issue. This seems a bit drastic for the issue you're having though.
