Did you not get your answer a few days ago? Anyways, let's try to diagnose your problem, shall we?
Which version of Windows 7 are you using?
You mentioned this happens after playing afull screen game. Which game?
What graphics card do you have?
Is it certified as Aero compatible?
How much memory does it have?
How much system memory does your computer have?
thanks for the reply, i appreciate it.
i get the same problem in both my Windows 7 machines
my specs are: desktop | laptop
OS & RAM: Windows 7 unltimate x64 4GB ram | Windows 7 professional x64 4GB
GPU: 8800gt 512mb | i3 , both with latest official drivers.
game shouldn't matter, but its happened with every game Ive played... ut2004, quake3, bioshock, bioshock2, crysis... the list goes on.
this system is much more than needed to run aero correctly imo.
The problem happens when you play any game full screen because aero gets temporarily turned off. You can duplicate this easily by opening a couple of windows. then keep some of them opened and minimize some of them. Now turn aero off and then back on again. all the minimized windows will not have a preview now. because they aren't being actively drawn.
this is exactly what happens when you play a fullscreen game. however im not exactly sure what causes this problem during a deep sleep. I'm sure it is similar.
Windows should be "saving screen shots" (if you have that box ticked that i posted earlier) that will be used in a situation like this, but it doesn't.
