Windows 7: Can't shutdown after sleep in windows 7 & more problems

Can't shutdown after sleep in windows 7 & more problems

After when I sleep and when I press the button or sometimes I just touch the keyboard it will turn on. After turning it on the programs seems to work but the usb port doesn't seem to appear or work.

Or Usually when I hold on the window button and press "E" button usually a window will pop up and let us go through my folder but this doesn't it just pops up and loads forever like frozen. I would though that when I go to task manager and end process explorer nad open new task it still doesn't work.

Or after sleep I just want to shutdown it or restart it would be frozen and it won't shutdown or restart, I after manually hold the button to turn the pc off.

Just to let people know I can still go to start and a program 'anything' will work or surf on internet, but if i open a folder on the desktop then it just stays frozen.

If anybody can help me solve all of these problems of mine I would be very thankful for your help.

Taking a wild stab at this one but... sounds to me like something might be screwy in your BIOS? If possible, load the defaults and try again.

You might find something helpful in this thread. It would help quite a bit if you fill out your system specs, as well.

You can read more about BIOS here. Essentially, these are the basic settings for your hardware, as determined by your motherboard. Without getting too technical, when your system boots and the screen is black (or blue or green...) you should see a command like 'HIT F12 TO ENTER BIOS' or F2 or even F1.

There will be many settings there but the one you're looking for are the 'AWAKE' settings. Generally, a 'LOAD SETTINGS FROM DEFAULT' will disable advanced power management.

It's possible that it's a Win7 configuration issue but not one I'm familiar with.

Unplug any external devices, drives, USB devices, printers, etc. Can you specify what, exactly, is happening?

Thank you. I use it for folding, games, video editing, watching Blu-rays, lots of things. I built it to last me a year or two.

i also tried unpluging what you said but it still doesn't work as normal.
to add more description I really don't know what else to say.
This windows 7 64 bit beta shouldn't have this kind of problem. But couple of times i tried reinstall windows 7 its just screwed as usual.
