When I opened up Vista after being in sleep mode, I couldn't reopen an application after it had been minimized before I went to sleep mode. Then I tried opening up several other applications and when I minimized the tasks, and tried both right and left clicking on the task bars at bottom of screen, nothing happened. Does anyone have any insight?

Hey there snickers,

Well, a restart would solve the problem... But assuming that you need to be able to open those program again before restarting try pressing "Alt" + "Tab" together. While holding "Alt", press "Tab" to scroll through the windows.


Open task manager:
> Right-click on the taskbar and select "Task Manager"
> Under the "Applications" tab select the running process and press "Switch To" command button.

Let me know if this is what you were looking for... Cool :whistling:
