    I just bought a NIB (New In Box) Windows 7 computer and I have run into a problem I have not seen and don't know what to do with. I keep my computer password protected due to financial and other sensitive information I have on it. Whenever I am away for an extended period I lock my computer using the Windows Key - L combination.

    If I am only away for short periods of time everything is fine but if I am away from my computer for an extended period and I try to wake my computer up it won't come out of hibernation and I have to use the power switch to shut it down and restart it and of course I get the "Windows did not shut down normally" screen.

    I like to leave my computer on for convenience and to get Windows updates but I now hesitate to do this if I am going to have to deal with it not coming out of hibernation every time I am away for a long period. I suppose I could always leave it on but this uses a lot of power as well as wear and tear on moving parts.

    Can anyone offer a solution to this problem? Thanks.

    PS: I am running Windows 7 Home Premium.

    Turn OFF the hibernation and just use your "lock Screen"
