    Window Keeps Popping Up


    Every once in a while, at random intervals, the detail page of my Backup (D:) drive pops up, filling the monitor and overriding whatever is on the monitor at the time. The display can be instantly removed by hitting the "X" in the upper right hand corner of the monitor.

    Maybe it's going to sleep mode and shuts down, after it wakes up it would show as just connected device.

    Window Keeps Popping Up


    Thanks for your response. I do appreciate you trying to help.

    But the window pops up and overlays a full screen game while the game is being actively played, which suggests the computer is not going into sleep mode.

    Does your backup include the complete system, including the MBR?

    Maybe not the computer but drive itself can. Check advanced options in your power plan, there's a setting for disk(s).

    As far as I know it does. I did a full backup onto a formatted (blank) disk on 8/23 using the Windows 7 backup app. I have tried to search for MBR in the save folder, but with no result.

    When I stated had you done a complete system backup.....I meant on your "D" Drive....if so that would be the cause of your problem.....if not it could be something else.

    Good thought but the Power Options in my Lenovo 10120 do not offer that range of selections. Limited to Sleep and Shut Down.

    Oops. Sorry. Found it. It's set to sleep after 20 minutes, which, again, seems to me to not be a problem since the display pops up while a game (or other apps such as Word) is actively being played.
