These two things have been happening pretty much ever since I built this machine about a year a ago. First problem is: I go to unlock my PC after leaving it for anywhere from 1hr-24hrs, and the date & time thing go away, like it does when it's going to load the password entry bar, but instead of loading the password entry thing it just gets stuck on the lockscreen background and the only option I have is to restart. I enjoy the nice pictures and all but, when I get back from work all I want to do is just get on my computer instead of restarting my pc and re-opening all the applications I had open.

Second: Sometimes I'll try to wake up the pc after leaving it for a while and it just won't wake up. Again the only solution is to restart, and even then sometimes the physical restart button won't work and I have to hit the power button.

I've read somewhere that these can be caused by power saver mode, but messing with the power save options did nothing.

Is there any solution for this?
