Windows 7: system sleep/monitor sleep - changes to AERO

22 Feb 2010   #1

system sleep/monitor sleep - changes to AERO

This has happened twice to me after fresh installs (the reason for my latest fresh was to ease my mind that this and other things weren't tied to something I did incorrectly).

First Windows 7 install by the store that built the PC (custom). I get the PC home (old XP system was 8 years old). Upon my FIRST use of sleep, upon reawakening, I am NOW in AERO mode (having defaulted to classic 7 per install) and my sounds have reverted to default (I had set to NONE, "start navigation" for clicking on links).

So, I've now REinstalled Windows 7. The system did NOT go into sleep mode, but when the monitor turned off (I'd adjusted monitor sleep to 10 mins and system sleep to 20 minutes), and I moved the mouse to turn the screen back on, for a moment it flashed "black" and I was NOW in AERO mode (with my sounds reverted back to default).

The symptoms are the same but one time, it was recovering from SLEEP and the other time, the monitor had simply turned off per my settings.

I've seen posts where people who are in AERO LOSE their aero upon returning from sleep, but mine is the other way around.

Additionally, per last Windows 7 install, I'd used WLMess and WLMail for 3 weeks. I have NO gmail or hotmail acct (strictly ISP). Upon returning from sleep one time, for the first time EVER, I was now getting system-tray "toast" mail notifications from WLMess. Yet, I'd never configured ANY of those settings in WLMess. So, I actually UNchecked "notify upon email" in WLMess but those notifications still occur RANDOMLY (it's not all the time, but on a few occasions). I tried combinations of having WLMail up before WLMess and vice versa but it's totally random that I will receive an email notification from WLMess.
