when i turned on my computer it said resuming windows. i even shut it off properly. (start-shut down) then it brought me to the log in screen and everything was fine. nothing happened, but i was just wondering why it did that.

thank you for your time.
i just get weirded out with little things like this since ive never had win 7 and its a newer os.

thanks again.

"Resuming Windows" indicates that the computer was in hibernate mode. However, if you shut it down properly, it would be virtually impossible for it to hibernate.

I do know that if you don't customize your power settings and then put your computer to sleep, Windows will hibernate after a certain period (default settings, I always change them). But since you said you shut it down, that doesn't seem likely.

Try replicating the result: shut it down, leave it for a little while, then boot. See what happens. It could have been a fluke, you could have accidentally clicked the wrong button (not likely, but still possible), there are many possibilities. But try recreating what happened, and we'll analyze what we get. :huh:

I know it's weird at first getting used to a new OS, but once you get familiar with it, it's awesome.

Some things in Windows 7 can seem quirky at first, and take some getting used to. But your particular issue seems to be isolated to your computer (or that single shutdown instance). I have never seen this happen before.

See if it happens again, and let me know. :huh:

It could have something to do with Windows updates. Click on the Control Panel, then Programs and Features. Next, click on "view installed updates".
See if the update was actually installed.

Yeah, it could have just been a fluke. Anyway, here's how to check for failed updates:
