first I want to say I really like this place, I found it through a web search !

#1 it seems a lot of times the taskbar & desktop freezes up, you will be able to access programs running by alt + tab,but that is it,I have tried looking into why this could be, but came up with nothing,I do not really run games on here,only once in a while,this is mainly just a on-line computer,so I don't think that could be the reason :confused:

#2 I can't put my computer on stand by/hibernate,when you try,the screen flicks & stays on, but you shut it down, restart it, then it will go on stand by/hibernate (on restart),then shut down

Some info
