(Solved)idles at 30 minutes then Freeze?

have anyone experience this? i have fresh reformat of "Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit" when i leave the computer on IDLE (sometimes i leave it when i download a huge files), 30 minutes to 1hour later i grab the mouse when i open something nothing happen and i noticed the desktop is stuck only my mouse is moving on the screen i press CTRL+ALT+DEL for task manager nothing happen i waited for minutes still nothing happen so i end up resetting my computer

i can only avoid this if i open some applications like games so i leave the game on IDLE otherwise it well stuck when i resume again

i don't have any anti viruses,firewalls was turn off,windows update was turn off,Put the computer to sleep is off, my power plan was set to balance, only the download manager was active at desktop and torrent..

anyone know this kind a problem?

If you leave an active changing program windows (I use BitTorrent) open on the desktop when you leave the computer, it won't freeze. If the desktop is static, the OS kicks in and freezes the whole thing. Windows can keep passing the blame as long as they like, but it's obviously the OS's fault.

i tried reformating my another computer with W7 64bit still they are same i can't figure the reason but running an active heavy application such as games while in idle or stand by in 30 minutes well save my desktop from freezing from resuming

Interesting. did you have any Blue screens? or did it just not responde ever till you manually disconnected power or pushed power button?

As for the program keeping it from crashing, it could be a few different things.

Even though sleep isn't enabled, something else like hibernate or a shutoff time in your power options could still be set to shut down at 30 minutes.

Edit: sorry just read middle of your first post again. Is it 30 minutes exactly? or a random time at about 30 minutes?

Does this happen in Safe mode?
Safe Mode

Also, go into the MSConfig (found by typing msconfig into the search bar) and uncheck all of the non-system programs so we can eliminate or find out if this is a program that is causing the issue.

If you aren't using a custom theme, then I would also try this: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
(This has been known to mess up custom themes because they change the explorer.exe file and sfcscan replaces the explorer back to original)

thats for starters hopefully you will see some results with that. The safe-mode can also be entered with networking. if you dont see any issues in safe-mode, then hop onto safe-mode with networking and see if dling causes the issue there.

Thank you for reporting back.
Keep it under observation.
Good luck.

Should you require help in the future I would suggest you start a new thread as this current one is rather old.
