I'm having a problem, when I put my laptop into sleep mode then wake it up, the mouse and system freezes every few seconds. I have to restart the computer to fix it, I already updated win8 with all updates so I don't know whats making this happen. It never happened with any other windows os I had. I hoping someone will know about this so I can get help, I would like to use sleep but right now I can't or I will get this problem and windows will be unusable with the mouse and system freezing, unfreezing, freezing and so on. I did try hibranating it, and it helps but I notice it still freezes for like a split second every 20secs or so. Its better then sleep but the problem still is there.

I'll do some more research, I tried to explain how the problem acts the best I could. After wake up from sleep, the system pauses every 3 seconds then unpauses, then does it again over and over until I restart windows 8. Everything is up to date as far as the video card and OS. If I find a solution I'll post it. Thank you for mentioning Scan Now I'll try it.

------ Update. The problem was found to a program, the Aero Glass tool by big muscle. I don't know if any of you heard about this project over on msfn. But when I was putting the computer into sleep or standby I had that program running and aero glass on. I just now turned off the program, aero glass, and tested sleep, woke it back up, and I'm not having any problems at all. Found the problem so this is solved. Aero Glass tool is in RC1 status so more bug fixes will probably resolve this issue.

Thanks, of course I tried sleep again with aero glass enabled and the problem never happened when I woke the pc up. So I don't know what caused it, but it is gone now and thats good.

I had a strange problem today with custom themes, maybe its just me but I installed uxstyle and used some themes which they worked great until today when all the sudden they stopped working. I rebooted windows 8 and it wouldn't load, the screen just kept flashing. I used SHIFT+F8 to get into advanced startup and restored windows 8 to an earlier date to fix the problem. I won't have that, Windows 8 makes all my stuff work so I won't stand for things breaking it. Now I'm extremely leery of using any custom themes.
