?Hi,
As in header.
I installed service pack 1 onto my pc which had power saving set to monitor
sleep after 15 mins and hd after 30 mins .
Now I find the pc has shutdown and wont wake with mouse or key stroke as
before!
I need to power up pc from main start and find the message about unexpected
shutdown - -start windows normally?
What might be happening as I checked the power options and its still set to
sleep but it isnt! :(

Well I did a system restore and after getting odd messages about
"COMCTL32dll" missing and then installing win 7 disc to attempt a repair I
finally got a system back.
Backing it all up now and then will check out if the original problem is
still with me!

You may also consider using a proper newsreader. The 2011 version of
Windows Live Mail is seriously flawed.

Newsreaders involve a certain level of personal taste. What
some people find acceptable, causes others to gag. That's why
recommendations are pointless. Better to try them yourself,
and find one you like.

I use Thunderbird version 2 from mozilla.org . It's pretty light
on features, and isn't intended for "all you can eat binary
downloading". In fact, people who do both movie downloading
and posting articles to USENET, will use multiple tools. Some
of the tools will be adept at gluing together multi-part postings.
Thunderbird is good for basic text postings, and doesn't have
strong filtering capabilities. Some people like their newsreader
to have "12 dimensional scoring", so posts are rated and filtered
before they even read them. Given the low posting rate in some
groups, I'd guess they don't get much to read :)

There is at least one newsreader, which is controlled with nothing
but keyboard shortcuts. Alt-shift-control-R might read an article.
Alt-shift-pat_head-rub_belly might move you to the next group.
And so on. There might be on the order of a couple hundred shortcuts,
and the people who like such tools, memorize them all.

Given those kinds a features, and variations, we'd need to know
"what kind of a person you are", to know what newsreader you need.
Maybe you love the "Alt-shift-control-R" for example. That's why
it's better to just test them yourself. Find a good list, and
start testing.

Defective products like WLM 15, are easy to eliminate, when they can't
even get the basics done correctly. If I was the software designer
at Microsoft who wrote that code, I'd hang my head in shame, and
sit in the corner (while collecting my $100K salary of course).

I'd recommend the OP use the 2009 version of the same program. It handles
Usenet somewhat better, AND it doesn't have the Office-like ribbon controls.

Unless, of course they like that, then I'd ask them to fix whatever posts
they make.

1, Remove everything of Windows Live 2011 in Add/Remove Programs.

2. Download and install the parts you want of Windows Live 2009 so we can
follow your posts:

Just to say the problem has not occurred with the restore setting so may try
service pack again to try and tag if its the culprit.

- "We failed to take over or even control Usenet. We will kill it!"

Do you seriously think that the news-clients that ms have
released in the past and are releasing today, the way that they
intentionally misbehave, isn't done by design?

Me, i think that the designers and programmers are getting bonuses.
