Windows 7: Unlocking user and Sleep problem

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Mint 9

This time, I removed a recently purchased USB 4 port extender and walla, the
problem went away. It was a Belden product. That company is the pits. I tried
twice to register on their site and would not be accepted. I'm just going to return
the item and make do with my existing USB ports. I suggest to never buy anything
from Belden.

You know what... that makes sense.
Glad you figured it out.

I know there have been a lot of problems with sleep, so I sort of figured it was just the OS.
