Windows 10 - unresponsive - 25/10/2017
« on: October 26, 2017, 10:00:33 am »
In the last few weeks Windows 10 seems to have developed an annoying feature, probably following the Falls Update.

If you leave the computer for any time then when you come back to it then the computer is unresponsive. You may get a window pop up that tells you that Windows Explorer is unresponsive and you get an OK/Cancel (neither of which work). The mouse pointer moves but if you click on anything then nothing happens. The keyboard is unresponsive.

The only solution is to do a physical reset as CTL-ALT-DEL doesn't work either.

It appears to be caused by the screensaver/sleep function as turning these to a NEVER option stops the effect. This setting is in Settings/Power & Sleep.
