Vista times out-makes me keep logging in for music...

by rapt2tight1 / January 1, 2010 11:58 AM PST

i love that i can feed ITunes music on my laptop to home stereo BUT if i walk away, even 10-15 minutes and return to the laptop to fast forward to the next song, whatever, i have to enter a password to return to ITunes. a similar thing happens when feeding XM from the laptop through the home system--it times out for inactivity after maybe 45 minutes. i've encountered this before and by shaking the mouse periodically, this annoyance seems to go away. there are probably easy solutions to these issues available--thanks to anybody weighing in with thoughts--thanks and happy new year!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
