Hi guys, I was hoping not to have to join this forum but here I am unfortunately, meant in the nicest possible way. I have been running build 7000 for a couple months which was running perfect no problems at all except for that my system simply wouldn't hibernate. However, build 7100 came out and I upgraded, finally my hibernate works. But, now and again when i try to hibernate or sleep the computer, screen will go off and it won't have the huge amount of hard drive activity that is normal for hibernate, it will stick in that state and do nothing until i forcefully power it down. I reboot and normally explorer.exe will crash, reboot and it will stick at shutting down and never shut down. The only solution i found so far was to system restore, but the first time I tried that got stuck too. Forcefully powered down again and tried system restore and it worked, then i was able to hbernate once more, next time it would not hibernate or sleep again and would not shut down either. Anyone have any possible solutions? The system ran perfect on only windows drivers with build 7000 so i assume it's security or something issues. I have very little 3rd party software installed at this point: 7zip (with shell extension) Notepad++ PSpice Internet Download Manager Avast! antivirus Google Talk Firefox Vodafone Mobile Connect WinCE Cab Manager These are the standard apps I run for my work etc. As I type this, my Network/Volume/Security Centre Icons are missing from taskbar. I clicked Start Menu/Task bar settings which I can not do anything in and the OK/Cancel buttons do nothing. (But obviously my network is connected because I'm submitting this. Although I can open the start menu, nothing I click does anything. WINKEY+E doesn't work so I will kill explorer after I submit this. In case it is of help, I am running on an Intel Atom netbook with an Intel GMA945 chipset, 2GB RAM. Ralink RT2680 Wifi abgn (only 3rd party driver installed is this, I'm using the Ralink driver) connected to a WPA2 Enterprise Radius Server. Any solutions would be much appreciated just so I can carry on working with this new build and be able to hibernate when I need.
