Windows 7: HELP!!!! Locked Out

02 May 2009   #1

Windows 7

OK so I am using build 7100 and every time my computer is running a period of time is locks the desktop (kinda like using ctrl-alt-delete). Before 7100 this was not a problem but now when this occurs the computer does not respond to my wireless keyboard or mouse (Logitech MX5000) and I am forced to manually reboot.

Any suggestions?

Keep in mind this was a clean install of 7100

My guess is that your computer tries to go to sleep after a period of time, and perhaps the logitech wireless keyboard or mouse does not let it go to sleep and brings it back from sleep at once. Hence the locked screen.

Now the reason it doesn't respond after coming back is probably the same incompatibility reason it doesn't let it go to sleep properly.

Fast solution: Disable sleep mode under power management.
Power Plan Settings - Change

Proper solution: Disable your logitech devices from waking up the computer.

Hope it helps

Any thoughts on why this is only happening with 7100 (64 bit)? I have used many version before this and never had this issue. Did something related to bluetooth settings change in 7100?
