Windows 7 is robbing me of my youth and goodwill :(

I'm new to Windows 7 and so far have found it an abolutely frustrating experience. Quite simply, it's robbing me of my youth and goodwill.

WHEN FINALLY...finally after getting my system to work correctly, I leave my computer on overnight and viola, I return the next morning to find my computer has automatically rebooted and my monitor cannot be detected.

I had to system restore to remove an update and get my settings back.

THIS IS COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS.

I'm wondering who I can submit an invoice to for all the billable work hours I've spent on absolute B.S.

Hi! dann6, welcome to 7F

I have found Hibernate to cause problems.
  • If you go to Power Options #1.
  • Then #2 Change Advance Settings.
  • Scroll down a bit, you will see +Sleep.
  • Click on the + sign, and you can modify the sleep settings.

Musical Youth?
No, not the UK reggae band from 1979. :( This post mainly applies to UK and USA citizens as their musical cultures have been so entwined for the last 6 or 7 decades but anyone is welcome to comment. I was just wondering how the youth of today views music from the past - I suspect each...
