    Hi

    I upgraded the daughter's Pro 13 to Windows 8.1 last weekend and a few days ago, it started hanging at the moment the screensaver kicks in. I can dodge it by disabling the screen shut of in the power settings, but I'd rather have it enabled. When it hangs, the power led is still green, but nothing else is alive, not even the caps lock led.

    It *seems* connected to the Windows 8.1 upgrade but I'm not entirely sure.

    Anyone else seen this?

    Just went through Hell Week transferring my business from XP to 8.1-64 on a desktop
    The Pan & Zoom screen saver slideshow just froze up and I had to hit the kill button on the machine, as nothing else worked ... even though it seems I regained the mouse with pointer with patience that is running out ....

    I'll be rounding up the usual suspects to purge
    >Google Chrome has been notorious for being fast at the expense of picking up all sorts of cookie and other "spies" that clog things up. I'll purge all that with its tools.
    >Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.2 is free and finds the dirty gremlins, eats them for breakfast. (Updates load fastest for the Grail website)
    >Norton Internet Security is head & shoulders above the rest + one price = 3 machine protection

    If you HAVE solved this already ... how about sharing your fix ???
