Computer lags when left idle.

Computer lags when left idle.
Views: 110
Like the title says my computer has this problems that when it is left idle like if I was watching a movie or something of this sorts, it does this massive lag, sound skips and screen image slows down.

Although right when I move my mouse, the screen goes black for half a sec and resumes to its normal speed. This happens every 5mins or so and some times it wont only lag butactually freeze my computer.

I am running on windows 7 64-bit. I have 3 monitors attached to my computer so I was wondering if maybe my cpu is being over worked and goes on like a power save mode when I'm not moving the mouse or something.

Windows keeps restarting

Windows keeps restarting Icon
Basically, I'm having trouble with windows restarting if left idle for too long. Only, it's not idle, because I'm trying to download things off steam overnight. I can't do it during the day, by the way, because we have limited download space (60GB) and it's free from 12 till 8.

ANYWAY, the computer is at the loading screen and the downloads have been halted.

Then, after thirty seconds or whatever, a notification pops up telling me that Windows was restarted for an update the update is always different, however, and I'm wondering if there's some kind of setting which stops the computer downloading updates without permission if left for too long.
 

Touch mouse loses left-hand functionality on idle

Touch mouse loses left-hand functionality on idle Icon

New Touch Mouse, Intellipoint 8.20.468.0, Windows 7 x64. I've set it up for left-handed use, which works just fine.until it goes idle. Not sure exactly when, feels like some kind of sleep mode for the mouse. When I start to use the mouse again, the right mouse button (which is now the equivalent of the main, left mouse button) does nothing.

Not for a while. The work around I've come up with is that I must LEFT-click (which, since the mouse is left handed, brings up the context manual) then RIGHT-click to get it working again.

 

Cracking, dragging sound, causes video lag

Cracking, dragging sound, causes video lag Icon

My computer started to get sound that pops, cracks, and drags, and when it does this is also lags the computer, including any video I'm watching. It only lags when I am doing something with sound, or something like taking the computer out of sleep mode, etc.

I have tried EVERYTHING I could think of so far other than a complete re-install of windows 7. The reason for this is that I have some programs installed on this computer currently that I cannot replace without buying them again. (lost CD's, mostly) So I'd like to avoid this problem if at all possible.

I have updated my sound drivers to the newest ones from Realtek, and it helped for about an hour and then the popping and cracking sounds came back. I also did a system restore as far back as possible without losing my programs, to no avail.

Laptop Freezes/Crashes After 30 minutes Idle Time

Laptop Freezes/Crashes After 30 minutes Idle Time Icon

My laptop has been working fine up until now. It was only purchased November last year so not even a year old yet. When it's left idle for more than 30 minutes it freezes up and crashes, can't do anything with it, have to hold the power butting to power down and reboot.

Highly annoying as it can't just be left and means I have to keep it busy when streaming films and music.

 

Cursor/mouse button lags and need to hold down for a bit to click

Cursor/mouse button lags and need to hold down for a bit to click Icon

My left mouse button lags quite a bit. This is most notable when I drag windows, as it would randomly select another window under the one I was dragging. Recently, it hasn't been clicking properly, I would have to hold the button down for a shot while (only a very shot moment, but it is very annoying and noticable) for it to click.

I have an A4 Tech x7 lasermouse that has been working perfectly for years, it is only in the last few days that this problem has been occuring. I have ran virus scans and checked mouse settings in control panel without success.

BSOD with ntoskrnl.exe

BSOD with ntoskrnl.exe Icon

I've been getting a TON of BSODs which according to BlueScreenView are being caused by ntoskrnl.exe. This seems to happen whenever the computer goes idle for too long/sleeps, never when I'm actively using it. Also, once the computer restarts it will go idle again eventually, which causes multiple BSODs at night if I forget to shut it off.

I haven't tinkered with the computer in terms of upgrades or hardware at all, so if your solution involves dismantling of some kind please link to an article letting me know how.
