    Hello. Welcome to the EightForums.

    Ok. Great. Problem solved.

    Only to address wake up issue... (from hibernation)

    I will offer this, as others might experience a similar effect. With hibernation, the pc can be awakened by mouse, keyboard or network.

    I was hibernating (the pc) and suddenly found my pc running in the other room, even though I had not
    turned it on. These suggestions solved my issue and will not restart while in hibernation.

    From Win-X or select device manager, individually right click and select properties for keyboard, mouse and network.

    Select the power management tab for keyboard, mouse and network.
    Deselect the option to wake up with keyboard, mouse, or network.

    Also, in my experience, if you move the usb to another port, it is necessary to redo the power management settings in device manager.

    As I said the only difference this time round was to uninstall MSE before installing win 8 - I did a sfc /scannow check on the system and some changes were made, but I couldn't easily open the log file and don't know what these changes were.
    Well done for sorting it all out....If you ever do an sfc /scannow again all changes are noted in the "cbs log file".
    These can be found as follows...C/windows/logs/cbs/cbs.log
    Right click on each and send to desktop where they can be read and deleted afterwards.

    Hi dencal -

    I thank you for the info, initially I had looked somewhere else for the log file and told: Access denied! However, following your suggestions I was able to get into it - 22MB of info that made little sense to me, except perhaps toward the end the entry: Mapping package cache was successfully rebuilt. But, I am still none the wiser ...

    Having run it once again, I was delighted that no faults were found, but I wonder whether it had anything to do with my problems of waking-up and or the pc freezing on restart ... I suppose I'll never know!

    I don't believe it - I found the pc fully awake this morning - the first time after a complete reinstall of win8.
    What I did yesterday - the ONLY change to the system was to install and set-up SkyDrive!

    Where and how can I find out what actually woke the system up ... and fix it.
