    This happens 95% of the time. sometimes it DOES work though. anyway, I looked through all the internet...or just about..and cannot find anyone who has found a cure yet. these are the symptoms.

    When you go to sleep, or hibernate, when you try to wake it up, it gets stuck on a black screen for about 8 min. then restarts.

    if you press shut down, it says "shutting down" and stays there 8 min. then restarts.

    i have not been able to find a cure..please help.

    also, i uninstalled all the windows updates from the past only leaving one. i unintsalled because i thoguht it might fix the problem and i would just search for updates so that i could get rid of the extra updates and only get the most recent updates. but now, i have no updates and when i press search for updates, nothing comes up. can anyone teach me how to reset so that any updates that apply will reappear? because i believe there are updates that apply, but since i uninstalled it, it is not going to show up on my updates list again. please help. thanks

    Are you hitting the shut-down button just once and not holding it down? One quick press should take the puter out of hibernation.
