I had it set so that the computer shuts off when I press the power button. I switched it to sleep because you broughtmy attention to it. I'm guessing that next time I get the desktop with no icons that I should just press the power button, put the computer to sleep, wait about 30 seconds, and then wiggle the mouse, right? You would think that would do the trick (but we're talking about computers here
And I'm not requiring a password. I alone use this computer, so there's no point. Thanks!
Update: This is why I hate computers: it didn't work. Of course, there was no real reason to think it would. I had to turn my computer off-and-on again a few minutes ago to get my regular desktop with icons.
Can someone help me?!?
