Windows 7
Had the same issue and fixed it

I had the same issue with my Samsung laptop.

It turned out the desktop background was causing the hang-up. I had it set up to switch the background using my photos in the photo directory periodically and it seems to cause the hang whenever that was kicked in. Interestingly, it only happened when the PC was inactive.
I now set the background to fixed black color, and I no longer have this issue.
