Windows 7 sleep without waking on ACER computer

by orionsg8 / November 5, 2012 1:43 PM PST

I don't know if it's Microsoft's bad OS or this crumby Korean computer - but it sucks to be back with Windows after a decade of Macintosh!

This computer randomly fails to wake up. The mouse icon moves, but my screens are all black. I can control-alt-delete to raise the task manager screen. But then clicking does NOTHING.

Windows is a **** OS. I hate it. It's always pissed me off since Bill Gates "created" it. Click click click - are you sure you want to click? Why don't you click some more? click click click. Would you like to click again? Are you sure you'd like to click again? And how about all those REALLY helpful popup windows. So thoughtful and caring. Thanks. Oh yeah, windows. That's why. Such vision.

Bill Gates has NO TASTE! I wish Steve Jobs was still alive!

There are so many stupid bugs in this system. It reminds me of Millennium Edition. DOes anyone remember that BS?

If I didn't need this ***** for work I'd burn it. Or enjoy hacking it to bits with an axe.

Can anyone help me sort this out? Or am I doomed to continually click stupidly until my tendons freeze up with carpal tunnel and my eyes fall out from staring at the ugly designs everywhere?

Lastly, there's an infuriating naming bug - sometimes Windows 7, so intelligently designed, believes a file is open when it is not. Windows won't let you change the name of a file or folder if it believes a file in that folder is open. Brilliant. So, guess what? Yeah, I can't change the effing file name and have to shut down the computer. Since I work in a firm with a high volume of files changing names frequently, I can't tell you how much this pisses me off.

Somebody get Windows to hire someone with creative vision who understands how to streamline operations! Someone teach Bill Gates how to paint a picture!

In the meantime, I'm going to work on convincing my entire office to move to Mac.

Thanks for nothing, Windows. I look forward to making you obsolete.

Hard to pick out the clues.

There are many causes for this from a bios/driver issue to malware. Why you brought all that other content in to derail your discussion is something for another discussion. I'm sure someone will revisit how long Bill Gates has been gone.

Otherwise known as a rant. As in, restrictions others impose on you...
