    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'
    (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928135).

    Regarding your WU issue, visit 'Cannot Update Windows Vista '
    (http://www.winvistaclub.com/t4.html)and 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.
