Mak, thanks for trying to look for an answer to my stby/hibernate situation.
I think that I've got bigger problems with my CPU usage. I was finally able to open up Firefox Optimizer and it looks like its working. On the Windows Task Manager, I've noticed that Firefox's RAM usage has gone way down. However, the CPU usage still pegs out at 100% every time I click on anything.
Not only that, if I try to open up something like the control panel, my computer uses about double the CPU % vs my wife's 5 yr old Averatec laptop. I really think that I've got a big problem. Its almost like my CPU just recently lost about 50% of it's capabilities. I hate computers
