    computer freezes after waking it up, sleep


    I have Windows 7 Ultimate running on my computer. There's only one little problem. Sometimes when I leave my computer, I come back and my laptop screen turned off or dim, whichever it is. This is fine, I set it to do this. However, after moving the mouse around, the mouse cursor freezes; both the keyboard and mouse don't respond to anything, for example the keyboard's windows key won't bring up the start menu and moving the mouse shows busy icon. I have to wait about a minute or two before things start working again

    I googled and found similar problems, none answered. wondering if you could. there has to be an answer

    What programs do you have running when this happens?

    You may have programs running at startup that is causing this issue. Please see this tutorial to temporary disable them and see if the issue is resolved:
