    When my computer goes to sleep and I am supposed to be able to push the
    power button to wake it up, it does nothing. I have tried everything I
    can think of to wake my computer, but I have NO success. The only way
    to get it to wake up is to hold the power button down till it turns
    itself off and then reboot.

    I also cannot install Windows updates :( When I click the update
    button it trys to download but instead basically just sits there and
    tells me it is trying to download, without ever actually doing anything.
    I end up just having to stop it. I had not installed downloads for
    quite awhile because when I first got my computer the updates kept
    ruining my system and I'd have to do a restore, but I've been having so
    many other problems with the computer I decided to try doing it again.
    I hate Vista and am starting to hate PCs and swear on my life my next
    computer will be an Apple :(

    I also experience the same problem with my laptop running Vista Home
    Premium SP1. The second best thing is just to do a hibernate, if that
    works for you.

    If your Windows Vista stops responding when you resume the computer
    from hibernation try the Hotfix from 'KB928135'

    Regarding your WU issue, visit 'Cannot Update Windows Vista '
    ( also see if any of the links at
    the bottom of the page help you.

    I just tried that hotfix and it didn't work. Actually it made things
    worse because now after rebooting, the start up is glitchy so I will be
    restoring it back to before the install.
    Vista is garbage! I just bought a new gaming computer to replace gaming
    and other tasks on my older desktop. But guess what, it's my older
    desktop with XP that I'm currently writing on because I can't even get
    it to keep a decent internet connection.
