Try using this command to find the problem
powercfg -ENERGY

In search type cmd do not hit enter

right click run as administrator

In cmd type your commands.

Let us know what happens .

Ok I tried what you said and it came up with this in the cmd:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7600]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\system32>powercfg -ENERGY
Enabling tracing for 60 seconds...

Analysis complete.

Energy efficiency problems were found.

3 Errors
6 Warnings
14 Informational

See C:\Windows\system32\energy-report.html for more details.

C:\Windows\system32>
So i went to that document and copied and pasted it into a word document so you could have a look because i don't know what i am looking at or looking for exactly so be easier for you to have a look. thanks for help keep it coming

I read the report, very exciting, maybe they will make a movie.
But in any event, in my opinion the important portion refers to the cpu. There seems to be some process that draws a substantial amout of resources; specifically mentioned is firefox.
This has to be a trial and error process, but I would try useing, IE, lets see what happens. If you still have the problem use IE during a clean boot and lets see the results.
How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

I would also go to control panel>power options and change it to high performance.

so what am should i do? I'm sorta confused by your post.... Do I stop using firefox because it is potentially the cause of the freeze up problem or what do I do with clean boot? sorry

I would do all three things that I mentioned
Clean boot
Change performace settings
and IE

Try just IE at first, if it works, thats the answer
if it does not work
Change performance from control panel
If that works, thats the answer
If it does not work
Try the clean boot, if that works
slowly put the start up items back, When it no longer works that is the problem start up item.
Just permanently keep that program off of start up.

Dont have to uninstall, go to search type default, and then, in default, make IE the default browser. Then when you go online, you automatically use IE and not Firefox.

well i tried all three of your solutions and this is what happened:
1. Make IE your Default Browser - Did that and that did absolutely nothing I set it as default browser then put my computer to sleep and upon waking it up it froze for about 3 minutes when i tried to start a application.
2. Change Power Setting - Once again changed the power setting to high performance then put my computer to sleep and re-woke and came up with basically the same thing however a little bit different i could bring up the application window but after that it would freeze for about 3 minutes.
3.Do Clean Boot - Ok typed run and went to msconfig and unchecked all startup items, restarted then put the computer to sleep and came up with exactly the same problem...
So they all didnt help could you give more some more advice please be greatly appreciated
