    When I turn on my computer its stars off good with the Windows logo and then the screen goes blank.I have nothing on screen,icons or task bar.I have to press CTRL ALT DEL to go to Task Manager to connect to the internet.This happens a couple of times when I shut off the computer.If I restart it all my icons come back and the tassk bar and everything works fine.I am afraid to shut my computer down so it doesn't happen again.Should I keep my computer in sleep mode instead of shutting it down and is that such a good thing to do. Thank you

    <p>&lt;p&gt;CTRL alt delete, Open task manager, Click file Click new task (run), type explorer.exe this should fix it I think what had happened is your explorer crashed&lt;/p&gt;</p> and there shld be nothing wrong with putting your computer into sleep rather then shutting down. Though finding out what's crashing your explorer task is a good route too.
