  • Winders
  • Need the help of some smart fellers. Did the free download to Windows 10 from Windows 7 today. Now when the computer goes to sleep, I can no longer wake it up with a key tap or a mouse move, I have to go to CTRL ALT DELETE. Is there an easy fix? It amazes me that I can have something that works, but the new and improved version doesn't work. There are a few other things that I haven't been able to figure out yet, but I am sure I'll get used to it.

  • My Windows 10 computer usually (not always) wakes from sleep after hitting a key or moving the mouse. Occasionally, I must hit the Start button. It has been this way since new.

  • Every time I get an update I have trouble, my computer takes a long time before it will open and some times it is very slow after the update. I never had this much trouble with Windows 7

  • A little over a year ago after an update on windows 10 I couldn't start my computer, it was dead! I got my windows 7 laptop out and looked up the problem and found it was quite common for 10 to lock up like that after an update. There seemed to be three fixes for it; an easy one, if that didn't work try a more complicated fix, then a more complicated one. All three didn't work, so I kept trying variations and after several days there was a little message come up that asked if I wanted to change the computer back to the way it came from the factory. Clicked yes and I had my windows 7 back without losing much since I had an external backup hard drive.
    Told my son about this and stated "guess my next computer will be an Apple", he informed he had bought a new Imac and his old one was just sitting in his garage and was still good. I don't like this Apple as well as windows 7, but I'm never going back to windows 10!
