Having a wide variety of 3rd party applications could be your problem
no doubt, just because you might not use over half of them. As for
"log" files, you should check the "Event Viewer" to check to see what
could be conflicting with your system.

To get to this point:
>> Goto Start>Run>Type eventvwr
>> More thank likely it will be in "Application" or "System" that will
tell you what is wrong.

Another option that might help is making your paging file bigger, even
though you do have quite a great amount of RAM installed, so I'm not
really sure that this would fix your problem. If you would like to
experiment with this though, here are the steps to make changes to
your Paging File. One note: your system defaults your paging file at
1.5 times the ammount of RAM currently installed on your system.

>> Right click "My Computer" and go down and click "Properties"
>> Click the "Advanced" tab
>> In the "Performance" area, click the "settings" button
>> Click the "advanced" tab
>> At the bottom in the "Virtual Memory" section, click "Change"
>> Select the biggest drive on your system (if applicable) and enter a
bigger number, such as something about 3 times the ammount of RAM
installed on your computer (make sure you have enough disk space), you
will select the drive first and then in the "Custom Size" options, put
the initial size (MB) in the text box and the MAX size, in which it
will not exceed this amount of space. you must click the "Set" button,
or your options will not be saved.
>> make sure that if you have selected a different drive that you
select the old drive that still has the old paging file and delete the
paging file for that drive. to do this just select the old drive and
click the radio option button called "No Paging File". and then again,
click "Set" to make sure the changes are applied.
>> click ok until you are done.

My computer is frozen on preparing for stand by. Wat should I do? The mouse works. I have tried pressing and holding down the power button Have also used ctrl alt del and ctrl alt esc all at once


Hold the power button down for more than 5 seconds and this will force the computer to shut down, if that fails, which it shouldn't, but if it does as much as i don't want to recommend this, unplug it, this will ensure the shutdown. Also get some sort of antivirus to check and see if there is anything impeding the standby, I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials paired up with Malware Bytes to ensure no viruses eek there way through your system.
