You can try going to Control Panel - Power Options or similar and there should be some settings to tell what the computer to do after it has been sitting idle for a specific amount of time.
Regarding the desktop icon issue, have you tried right-clicking on the desktop - Arrange Icons - Then check "Show Desktop Icons"
