    Vista Home Premium

    Problem is this....
    Normal Mode with wireless on - after 30 seconds, entire desktop flickers, turns black briefly, then dumped back to logon screen.
    Normal Mode offline - about 25 - 30 minutes, same effect as above, then dumped back to logon screen.
    Neither of the above causes reboot, bsod or OS crash, just a 'flip out' then back to logon screen. Anything opened, i.e apps, browser gets shut during this process.
    Safe Mode - completely stable, wireless on or off.
    So I don't think its the wireless driver(latest version from Intel), just power management/infection issue somewhere.
    Apparently there is an official conflict issue with the driver and vista hibernate mode, but no solution as yet.
    Driving me nuts, safe mode isnt exactly the best mode to use the laptop in and it's totally unusable in normal mode.
    Any ideas ?
    Thanks in advance
