Logging Off Problem

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Wayne Wengert, Jan 31, 2007.

  1. I am running Vista Ultimate on a new laptop and about one out of every three
    times I Shutdown or Restart, the system hangs on the "Logging Off" screen.
    I've let it run for 15 min and it never completes. Any thoughts on what can
    be causing this?

    Look in the Problem Reports and Solutions area for any indication of what is
    causing this.
    Control Panel | System and Maintenance | Problem Reports and Solutions

    If that doesn't give a clue do some clean boot troubleshooting. The process
    is the similar in Vista and XP.

    There is no "System and Maintenence" choice in my Control Panel?

    Ignore that - I was in Classic view.

    Did your device ever enter into sleep mode during this process?

    I've been seeing something with my new installation of Vista that if my PC
    goes into Sleep mode and I do this it hangs here... However if I boot up and
    do things it seems to be good.

    Though I'm only 4-5 hours into Vista and haven't been able to narrow it down
