    I have a Gateway laptop with Vista preloaded. Frequently during shutdown or
    logging off for a new user, I lose wireless conection to the internet and the
    computer locks up. I have to turn off the computer with the off button, then
    deal with possible issues during the next start up. Suggestions?

    Something is not exiting gracefully. With Vista, this is often a driver
    issue, and since you refer to wireless problems I'd start there. Go to
    Gateway's tech support site for your specific model laptop and get all
    the latest drivers for all the hardware. Update the drivers.

    In addition, take a look at this shutdown troubleshooter:
