Taskbar freezing...

When I put my computer to "sleep" for a long period time, why does the taskbar freeze and I have to hit the Window button a few times to bring up the start menu and it will hide the taskbar???

I forgot to mention when I revive the computer...

That's been a complaint for, well, since about 1995

Sleep and such showed up about then and when a PC comes back from sleep it may be a while for everything (apps and OS) to become ready.

About the only system I don't see this happen is on my iPad and Google Nexus tablets.

Now, I think about it...

you are right. It can be very frustrating that at times, I have to restart the computer.

Here I use a faster method. I log out and back in.

That stops and restarts just a little of the entire system.

Thank you!

I will do that for now on...
