Hi

If I leave my laptop on for a while, say up to 3-4 hours, ie not in use, sometimes when I return i find it slow and sluggish. Sometimes theres no option but to reboot. And sometimes it wont come out of "hibernation" or whatever state it's in, and I cant even reboot but have to hold down the POWER button for 4-5 seconds to turn off.

Surely this shouldnt be? Arent computers left on all day in offices and workplaces?

Oh, its usually connected online, though not always.

Hi. Do you have virus protection? You might consider posting your HijackThis logfile in our Malware section for analyzation. When did this start? Have you made any changes to your system recently?

Have someone analyze your logfile, and let us know how it turns out. That logfile will most likely cut our work out for us.
