Basically, I have a Gateway netbook -- an LT3103u. I've been through *censored* with it. I'm about to ship it to Texas for repair for the third time, but before I did I wanted to post this:

The main issue I have with it, right now, is this -- whenever there is an excess amount of programs running, if you leave the computer to sit and let the screen turn off, and then you go to move the mouse, the computer will have difficulty coming back -- it'll be beyond sluggish, and somehow the power settings reset by themselves, and occasionally the processor speed settings will somehow be set to 0% for the minimum and maximum processor speed in the power settings. How do I fix this without just disabling the screen from turning off? (I think it would also happen even by disabling it, too) It can't be the wifi card or hardrive, as these both have been replaced by Gateway tech, and yet the problem still exists. Could it be the motherboard or processor?


Specs:
Gateway LT3103u
AMD Athlon 64 Processor 1.20 GHz
2.00 GB RAM
ATI Radeon Graphics card
32-bit Vista Home Basic

You say you're sending this unit back for repairs for the third time, was the first two times for the same problem?

This unit may have had problems when it was manufactured, cold solder joints and production problems that were worked out on later models.

What operating system are you running on this?

Nope -- there were other problems with it; they fixed a lot of the other ones... this is just the last one that remains. The wifi card was defective, as well as the hardrive. They sort of just fixed one problem each time I sent it, I guess...

And Vista Home Basic 32-bit.
