Windows freeze after hibernation/monitor off

Hey guys,

After doing a ton of updates for my Vista (haven't been able to update for
months, but the problem was solved two days ago), it's been freezing up every
single time hibernation mode is exited or if the monitor just turns off
automatically after X amount of time to save power. After automatically going
into
hibernation mode/monitor off, I move the mouse, the desktop comes back, and
only the mouse is movable, everything else is stuck. Only option is to reboot
every time.
Have done several virus/other scans with Nod32, Windows Defender, etc., all
with negative results.
I'm using a Dell 1525 laptop with Windows Vista Basic.
Thanks for your help!

Check the event log for any errors relating to hibernation. Then look up the
errors and see what the fixes are.

You're welcome. Let the group know which one worked (if indeed one does) so
all may benefit.
