Laptop locks up during shut down

\015 My laptop is running windows xp pro and has started locking up when shutting down. the only way to shut it down is to do a cold shut down (press and hold the power button until it shuts down). upon restart it goes into a normal start up rather than display the typical ''windows did not shut down properly'' and doesn't check for errors.\015

Answers :

Some computers do not work well using their "Sleep" settings. You might like to try seeing if your computer manufacturer has some new drivers available to address that problem. Barring that, just use hibernate instead of sleep during the day, and use Shutdown at the end of the day - this also ensures that your computer will update itself regularly. Not sure if that will help. Would love to know if this problem has been solved.

Laptop crashes Just recently my laptop has started to completely shut down when i am in the middle of doing something like playing a game or listening to music. There is no warning the laptop just shuts down. It seems like it shuts down when it gets too hot, but there are other times that it shuts down after being in use only 15 - 20 mins. Not sure what is wrong with it. I am thinking something with the power throughout the laptop. Any help would be great!
