Windows 7: Windows 7 wrongly tells me my copy is not genuine

Test sleep now by setting it to 1 minute while you watch.

I would also turn on hibernate which is perfected in Win7 and allows you to walk away without worrying about turning off the computer whether you come back in an hour or a week - your data will be saved after timeout and computer shut down. It also starts up much faster from hibernate.

I have turned the Sleep Mode back on, and set it to activate after 1 hour of inactivity, and it is working fine.

I still have hibernate turned off at the moment, but I noticed that the hiberfil.sys file is still rather large (it is about 2.2GB in size). I hope it's supposed be that way.

I want to thank everyone for their help and suggestions, I have my older computer up and running Windows 7, and have been able to keep all the programs I got from HP when it originally ran Windows Vista.

P.S. - The system is running faster than ever, and now that my older computer is working again I have two great computers, instead of just one.

Glad to hear it.

Remember to save a Win7 backup image so you can use that instead of reinstall next time: Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup
