Windows 7: Odd behaviour after recover from screen power off

Odd behaviour after recover from screen power off

Hi Guys,

Difficult one to explain, but here goes:

I have been having an issue that is occurring at random where after the laptop has been woken up from having powered the screen off, everything else still running, that it starts randomly opening and selecting loads of different windows and options.

Its almost like its racing through and redoing actions almost as if in a recorded session playing back at high speed, however many of the optins its selecting are options I never went into in any session since last full reboot.

Typically this happens for anywhere between 5 and 20 seconds then the system stabalises and runs fine. However I am concerned that during that time options and setttings may be changed without me seeing them occurring which will cause oother problems later.

I am running 7600 RTM, I have done several full virus scans (as well as daily automatic scans) all of which have been clean.

Anyone got any ideas what could be causing this?


Thanks in advance.

Examine running tasks in Task Manager or Process Explorer (a free program).

This is the list when selecting "show processes from all users", it required 2 screenshots to get them all in.
