Windows 7: Login "Incorrect Password"

Login "Incorrect Password"

Hello, I'm having an issue with logging back in after I hibernate the system. It goes to the login page where I enter in my password. The problem is everytime I type in my password, it tells me that I've typed the wrong password. I try to "switch user" and login from there (not sure what the difference is), and that doesn't work either.

I always end up having to restart the computer. Then when it gets to the login page, I type in the exact password that I tried to type before, and it works. It's only right after I hibernate that the password stops working.

Any idea whats going on?

Thank you in advance!

Several have started to have this problem. For now you may want to stop using hibernate.

My laptop has a 10-key so its not the numlock problem. Also, sometimes I'm able to log in and most of the time, I can't.

I guess I'll disable hibernate for now, but please reply if there is another way! Thanks
