Windows 7: Computer Doesn't Respond in Mornings

Computer Doesn't Respond in Mornings

I leave my Desktop PC on all the time. I have the monitor set to go off after 20 minutes. In the morning I sit down at it and move my mouse and the monitor turns on. The last two mornings when I have moved my mouse, nothing happens. I have to turn it off and reboot again to get the monitor to work. It sounded like to me that Sleep was on, but I checked in Power Options and it is still set to Never. Any ideas on what might be causing this?

== I decided to do a System Restore to before I had the problem. I will see how things turn out in the morning.

HE HE ( I always wonder about that for myself )

Seriously now,
If it started 2 days ago, that was Patch Tuesday...did it start after the PT updates ?
If it really does go to sleep, there should be an entry in Event Viewer (History) for the Sleep...
I forget the event details atm, but can get that info if needed...

I first noticed it about 7 AM Wednesday, so the Update had probably already happened. Hopefully the System Restore works. Since I back dated before the Updates, will it automatically catch me up again or do I need to manually do anything?

If you have Windows Update set to automatically install updates you shouldn't need to do anything manually to re-install the updates and catch up again.

You can open Windows Update and View Update History to confirm the updates did re-install.

If you don't periodically check Windows Updates, you may have some Optional Updates that do not install automatically.
Even if you have it set to automatically install updates, you can Check for Updates and manually install any available updates, anytime.
I suggest checking at least once a month, a couple of days after Patch Tuesday to see if anything is available, and not installed.
Your specs show you use MSE AV, so you should see at least one update per day for updating the MSE definitions in Update History.

I didn't have the problem this morning so the System Restore worked. Thanks DavidE for your help on the Updats.
