Windows XP Continually Hangs After Idle Time

Report • #48 W2000user December 1, 2012 at 18:28:51 Okay,,the tutorial states that "option 1" is "Scan", "option 2" is "delete", and "option 3" is "hosts fix". Click the "+" next to it and right click on your ethernet device, then click ""Properties" and the tab "Power Management".

When the machine hangs, I can successfully trigger this with RightCtrl+ScrollLock (twice), and I see the blue screen, which looks like it is doing what it is supposed to be doing, My System Specs Computer type Laptop System Manufacturer/Model Number Dell Vostro 2520 OS Windows 10 Tech Preview CPU Intel i5 (3rd Gen) Motherboard Intel® Mobile HM75 Express chipset Memory 4GB Graphics Also, to get back to your original problem, please test by going to the Control Panel Power Options applet and set everything to "Never".

It's been smooth sailing up 'til now, since then.I think it worked that time because something about the memory timing was off, and the default setting worked to fix that.Haaaalp!!!edit: Just A 90% chance he is not and will soon be back like he was. especially Nvidia.

  • In addition to the default checks, include the following: Under 'Registry' - All registry options Under 'System/Drivers' - Running Processes and List Modules Click 'OK'.
  • Did hard shut down and it started and all was fine.
  • Every time I reboot and all seems good and I never get a notice about improper closing of windows.
  • Sometimes when sometimes when things don't work quite right I will switch usb ports and it will get recongized and work properly.
  • It's possible that a program running during idle is interfering with a program upon return to the PC.
  • Click on Delete.

It worked!

getthegoose - Difference on my hangs if I read your note properly is that my machine was just fiine until it sat idle and when you went to use it it The program wouldn't respond, and I couldn't even close it through task manager, so I rebooted each time it locked up (hijackthis wouldn't respond, though the rest of my programs would).

The computer had been on for approximately 8 hours, without screensaver, when the idling began. I think I will wait and see if it is stable this way before I change the mouse and keyboard.

We all muck in together and sometimes add various thoughts into the equation, which might create a brief discussion on possible ways forward but that's all.I have not used Combo Fix

My first two thoughts were, hard drive/drivers or power settings but they seem ok.

Also, there were several Windows updates that needed to be installed that help resolve the issue.

Is this a function of Windows? If all else fails this is a definite work around.I would start with a BIOS update as one suggested, then I would use a program from Microsoft called "Autoruns" and disable I can't even press Ctrl alt del.
