On my laptop (Sony Vaio with Windows XP), when I try to shut-down, sleep, or stand-by, the computer goes to the "computer is preparing to shut-down (sleep, or stand-by)" screen and just stays there, like it's frozen. The mouse is still movable, but I can't do anything else. It just stays on that screen until I manually shut down the computer.
This just started happening a couple of days ago. I didn't do anything different on the computer; I just hadn't used it in a couple of weeks.
Sorry I don't have any more details. Please let me know what I can possibly do.
