I've recently moved overseas, and for a period of 3 weeks i was without my laptop. Never again i tell ya !
Anyway, i've just got set back up and got myself a pretty good adsl connection, and have been happily surfing and working and doin all the usual things one does with a pc.
Yesterday however, i found that when i went to shut down when i was heading out on the town, nothing happened.
It seemed to be going through the motions, yet when i came back from the shower it was still running away.
This has happened a couple of times now ...
I've tried ending any and all programs running on the system tray .... i've checked in task manager to see what was left running and cant see anything out of the ordinary.
Sometimes it happens that everything disappears from my desktop, taskbar, folders, files, shortcuts, the lot ... leaving just the desktop background image showing, and other times it leaves everything there, allowing me to select "start" and try to turn it off again and again and again ad nauseum.
Anyone got any theories on what might be causing this ??
I know there are probably ways around it, but i'd rather know what the problem is before i have to work around it.
Many thanks in advance for your help
If there really was a god, then why is my ass the perfect height for kicking ???
