HELP! PLease! Windows XP locks up returning from standby OR HIBERNATE

I'm not sure if you fully understand the problem. I *can* put the PC in
Standby and I *can* put the PC in Hibernate, and I *can* just Log Off
my Windows session. The problem is: When I come back from being in
Standby, Hibernate, or just sitting on the Log On Screen; I click on a
user logo/picture, enter appropriate password, and the screen then
changes to the "Welcome"/"Loading Personal Settings" screen. At this
point I do not hear the Windows "signing on" tune that I would normally
hear and I then know that it is frozen. The only thing I can do is hold
the power off/on button for eight seconds to turn it off and restart
which the goes through the "Checkdisk" because Windows didn't shut down
properly last time. My main concern is that this is a symptom of worse
things to come and I would like to address it rather than just
circumvent it. I hope this clarifies the exact nature of my problem!

Well, you didn't give any info in your post.

Has it just started to do this? Have you just installed new programs?
Have you used Safe Mode? What have you tried so far?
