I normally leave my PC on and lately after being idle for a few hours a white rectangle appears with CLOSE in the centre. After clicking it off I cannot access anything, can't even connect to my server. I have to close my PC and reboot to get it back to normal

Anybody any ideas?

Thanks Basil

Disable screensaver or other power options and check if it would help

Check for spyware and virus in your system


when you leave your pc , do you run any application or do you close all applications ..

Is there any message in that white box ?
