When I start up my computer it goes directly to sleep mode. I'm able to click into the desktop (s l o w l y). I've scanned with MWB and Avast in safe mode. I've cleaned my start ups with Autorun help. Bare minimum of icons. Lots of disk space and available memory. Whats my next step? My ignorance is vast. Thanks.

How do you have your Power Schemes set in Power Options?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I've resolved the issue (so far , so good) via the regular edition (freeware) of the TweakGuides Tweaking Companion (TGTC) linked by some kind soul on another post on this site. Wow! I'm very happy to have access to such good info. Thanks again for your kind efforts.
