What do you mean it locks up?

Does it lock up when using it?

Or just when its in "Hibernation"?

This is a very weird scenerio. there are so many possiblities, its almost inpossible to figure this one out. But perhaps if u give us more info. like

How long does it take

Can u still see things on the screen

IS IT in hibernation


I have heard that if u have usb devices connected while its in hibernation (if its in it) it will freeze.

1. When you come back and the screen is black, is your power button slowly flashing on and off like it is in hibernation/standby?

2. BUT, then you state the computer wants you to log on...is there a logon screen or is the screen black?
