Hi, My Computer is acting strange. It lags/pauses when not in use for a while. For example, I am playing a game. All games have cinematics, right? when the short movie appear, I won't touch the keyboard or the mouse because I want to watch the movie. But suddenly, my computer acts strange and it lags the video/short movie. It returns to normal when I move the mouse or I press keys in the keyboard. Help please. I want to remove this lag when my computer is not in use for a couple of seconds. It is really annoying when I'm watching cinematics or short videos.

It's not the game. Everything lags when my computer is not in use. Even if I'm watching video's at facebook or youtube or any other site.

Also check the screensaver settings. Disable it, or set it to a long period when running this sort of application and/or movie. Either that, or move the mouse every once in awhile... :-)

Maybe it could be driver issues. Have you checked if you have an updated version of your video driver?
