Taskbar freezing...

by rcrosby57 / October 5, 2015 1:50 PM PDT

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???

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.

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

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

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
