My problem started with windows 8 and I thought it might go away with the 8.1 upgrade, but it didn't.


Wenever I put my computer into sleep mode and later wake it up, the screen is locked. I can click all I want, but nothing happens. I have to reboot it in order to login.


Any suggestions?

G'day zepe, and Welcome to BC.


Read these two articles, and see if either is applicable to your situation
