My computer says configure updates and then it automatically turns off


This will be a long process of troubleshooting and may end up of restoring your computer to a factory settings. You can try the steps below:
First is boot up to advance boot options, to do this follow the steps below: -Turn off your computer -After pressing the turn on button start tapping F8 key until you see the Advance Boot Option. -Try choosing Last Known Good Configuration if it fail try Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt, if one is successful use system restore to restore your computer to an earlier date but if it fails you'll need to use your Operating System Disc to use the repair option.
Here's how to access system restore incase you're able to access Last Known Good Configuration, Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt: Windows XP: Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
Windows 7 and Windows Vista: Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If you're on safemode with command prompt: At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER, System Restore window will pop-up then select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If all the steps above fails you need to use the recover disc or the operating system disc to do a repair on your computer. Revert back in case you need steps for using start-up repair.
Note: If the steps above and start-up repair fail there's no other option but to restore your computer to factory settings.

I am trying to doa system restore but it wont let me, how doi do it


For System Restore to work you need to have the restore points available. If there was no restore points then system restore will not work.

You can try performing system restore from Safe Mode (Best Option more often than not).

Try Below mentioned steps
Step 1: Keep hitting F8 key while computer starts to boot.
Step 2: It should generally take you to windows advanced option. If it boots to windows then you have to try again.
Step3: Once you reach windows advanced option Choose safe mode and wait for the system to boot (Generally a slow process).

Accessing System Restore:

Step 1: Click on start
Step 2: All programs and choose system tool.
Step 3: Look for System Restore (Follow the screen).

Note: You will not be able to choose all the dates in the calender only those dates that are bold will be available for restoring the computer.
Again it might not work all the time so keep trying with different dates in Bold.

i have reviewed your issue and read several articals in regards to this issue and it looks like it is common. I found one site that seemed to have the most details options and step by step instructions for different possibilities follow this link: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/63567-power-options-sleep-mode-problems.html
But prior to going into anything to technical, to me it sounds like it might be a software glitch with the operating system. In which case I would start by trying a system restore to a prior date when you know this issue was not happening.
System restore instructions are below:
Here's How:
  1. Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.
  2. Click on the System Restore program icon.
  3. Click Next > on the Restore system files and settings window.
  4. Choose the restore point that you want to use.
    Note: Check the Show more restore points checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
    Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows 7 created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows 7 changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
  5. Click Next >.
  6. Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
    Note: Windows 7 will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before continuing.
    Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.
  7. Click Yes to the Once started, System Restore cannot be interrupted. Do you want to continue? dialog box.
  8. System Restore will now restore Windows 7 to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose in Step 4.
    Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
  9. Immediately after logging in to Windows 7 after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.
  10. Click Close.
  11. Check to see if whatever Windows 7 problem you were troubleshooting has been corrected by this System Restore.
    If the problem still persists, you can repeat the steps above and choose another restore point if one is available.
    If this restoration caused a problem, you can always undo this particular System Restore.

When opening it hangs-up after windows opening normally after 30 seconds...


Just before Windows boots, keep pressing the F8 key. When you get the boot menu, boot into Safe mode and click NO, when asked to logon. This would start System restore. Restore the system to a date when you know that Windows worked fine.
Here’s a youtube video on how to restore a system with System Restore
Here are step-by-step tutorials on System Restore:

Hi,
 
Since you are not able to boot to normal mode or safe mode, you have a couple of options available, one is a repair install of windows (may fix but risk of data loss) , second is a manual system restore listed below.
To perform system restore in the Recovery console
Step 1: Boot the system with the CD (Tap F12 while booting and select boot from CD)
Step 2: At "Welcome to setup screen" Press R
Step 3: Select the appropriate path for windows and press enter
        If it asks you for the administrator password, type the known password and press enter or just hit enter
 
Step 4: We will now see the Prompt c:\windows
Step 5: type cd ..
Step 6: type cd system~1\_resto~1 and press Enter
Step 7: If "access denied"
Step 8: type cd windows\system32\config and enter
Step 9: Type ren system system.bak and enter
Step 10: restart the computer and get back to recovery     
console (follow step 1 - 5)
Step 11: type cd system~1\_resto~1 and press Enter
Step 12: type dir
               it will list you restore points
 
                        (e.g. RP1, RP2, RP3, RP4, etc...)
 
 
Step 13: select the one from the list except the last one say RP4   
Step 14: type cd RP3 (or RP2 or RP1 or RPn) and enter
Step 15: type cd snapshot and enter
Step 16: type copy _registry_user_.default c:\windows\system32\config\.default and enter
Step 17: type copy _registry_machine_security c:\windows\system32\config\security and enter
Step 18: type copy _registry_machine_software c:\windows\system32\config\software and enter
Step 19: type copy _registry_machine_system c:\windows\system32\config\system and enter
Step 20: type copy _registry_machine_sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam and enter
step 21: type cd \
Step 22: type cd windows\system32\config and enter
Step 23: type ren system.bak system and enter
Step 24: type exit and enter
Step 25: the computer restarts and the system will be 
successfully restored
