Windows 7: Problem after monitor shuts off

Problem after monitor shuts off


I am using Windows 7 RC on a Dell 1501 laptop. The problem I have is if I leave the computer idle for a few minutes and the screen turns off (the pc doesn't go into hibernate or sleep) and then I move the mouse, the screen turns back on but the pointed is jumpy and my programs are unresponsive. If I hit ctrl+alt+del the system then needs to be shut down by holding the power button. I used the Beta previously and didn't have this problem. Anyone out there know anything about this problem? It makes the system almost unusable. Performance is very good with 7 except for this issue.

Thanks in advance!
