In other words, it is unresponsive for a few moments, but only sometimes?

Are you using the touchpad, wired mouse with a ball, wireless mouse with laser, etc...? Sounds like it's hardware related to me. But knowing which one you are using can help me nail down what is causing the problem (faulty drivers, hardware, etc.). :thumbsup:

Another thing....I'm assuming this is your new Asus laptop, sharpie? Correct?

If so, the drivers could possibly need updating (fresh out of the box doesn't mean current necessarily). But until I receive further explanation on your part, I am inclined to think the issue is hardware-related. But we will see...

You didn't answer my other questions...

im using a touch pad and i posted a long ass post earlier, but i dont know where it went and it answered all of your questions. it has only happened once and i installed the proper driver so i guess im not too worried about it because right now it works great.

Okay, well then...I guess it was just a fluke. Let us know if it happens again, and what you think caused it. :thumbsup:

heat? anything serious? the only way it was able to be on for so long is because it was connected to the charger.

I'm not really sure what could be causing your problems. Heat could certainly affect the functionality of it. Typically leaving a laptop on idle for a few hours will not cause it to overheat. It should stay fairly cool. Using it continuously for hours might make it heat up, but with a new one, it should be able to handle it.

Was it warm when you used it after it sitting there?

When you are not using your laptop/notebook shut it off.

it happened again. my laptop was only on for about an hour. i had to hold down the power button to restart it. why is it doing this? this is a brand new computer. is it the computers fault or the OS? I bought thids computer because it was spoused to be one of the best brands. any help would be much appreciated.

thank you for your time-
