Sheesh. I put it in sleep mode, and it fails.. When I switch it off, and then on again - sheesh. Everything gone again.
XP used to crash every time, hard reboot, the lot. But I never used to lose much. Vista, on the other hand appears "fragile". Its taken a good hour to get back "stuff", and I'm sure I'll find broken stuff for the next few weeks.
I'm sick and tired of nursing windows computers. Absolutely sick and tired.
My next laptop will be a Mac.
