    Windows Start Menu and Background blanking out after idling

    This is difficult to verbally explain, but here is some background context:
    • I leave my computer idling over night in order to charge my phone, and I leave it idling when I go to class so I can virtually access it on my laptop
    • Whenever I go to bed (~12:00am) and get back from class (~3:00pm) [no using my computer in between], it looks like this when I turn my monitor back on [NOTE: the error message is just from me unplugging my phone and iTunes complaining - I can assure that it is totally irrelevant from my problem]:And just for comparison, this is how it looks normally:
    • Any ideas as to what might be causing this? I am able to blindly click anywhere on the start menu and things still open, but I would prefer to fix this. Everything resets to normal once I restart.


    1. My background goes through a 20 degree hue change every 10 seconds based off of 18 degree intervals (total of 360 degrees, it's quite pretty to watch) so that explains the color differences in the start menus
