Freeze up in Vista, locks up when idle
Posted on 2007-12-05
My desktop has had problems freezing up when idle (Screen just freezes as it is, and doesn't respond to Ctrl-Alt-Del). I have tried to figure out why many times, and sometimes I think I have figured it out, but then it happens again. Now it is doing it after just a few moments of being idle, or perhaps idleness isn't even playing a factor anymore, I don't know. Is there some utility out there that can run in background that logs what is going on, so that when I freeze up, I can reboot and then go look at a log that will tell me what was causing the freeze-up?
