If I leave my computer idle for even a half hour it will not do anything. I can move the mouse arrow and attempt to open an application but they never start. I always have to reboot.

I have run many spyware programs and nothing comes back.

What can cause this?

Regards,

Jerry

There's not enough info to make an educated guess, IMO...but the PSU seems a likely suspect to me.

I would look into the power options (Start->Control Panel->Power Options) and try setting the options scheme to "Always On" to see if that may be part of the problem. If that improves things then we will need to find out why the computer doesn't respond when in power saving mode.
To Err is human; to really foul things up requires a Bleeping Computer!

The power options are set to never shut down or hibernate already.

Is there anything that I can post that would give more information? I did have an Explorer pop up today. This is new.

Could a virus or spyware cause this?

Thanks for your help.

Jerry
