    I'm thinking about going back to Windows 7 but have questions


    If any of you read my post about going back to win 7 on the Sevenforum Win 7 sorry to make you read it again but I wanted to check everything before making a big dive and starting all over.

    Since I had Win 10 I have had issues, Microsoft has remotely connected to my system to "fix" the issues. I'm still having some of them and and I wanted to list them and see if they are common bugs or is my Win 10 screwed up.

    Many times after not working on my computer I come back and open a browser ( happens on all ) and it says "not responding"

    Sometimes I an sitting here and both my monitors go bright blue with nothing on them, I can move the mouse but I have to reset and then it all comes back.

    I guess those are the only 2 issues I can think of right now. I would hate to wipe my OS drive out and then fresh install win 7 if this are known issues that have a fix or a fix is on the way.


    Thanks to all who take the time to read my post

    You could be experiencing problems with sleep or hibernate modes or disks are going to power saving mode and shutting down but not waking up at right time.

    I checked in the power settings and set everything to "never" do you have any idea where else I can check to see if it is sleep or hibernate modes or disks are going to power saving mode

    Right now I am following Brink's power setting tutorial listed here
    Power Options - Add or Remove 'Allow wake timers' in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    I don't know what a wake timer is and what setting it should be if I never want my system to go to sleep or hibernate modes or disks are going to power saving mode

    You don't need any wake timers if you don't want hibernate and sleep modes, I turned everything off and computer is on 24/7.
