Comment: My PC hangs up and it seems that the explorer.exe process stops working. It is occurring mostly during music playback after 1 - 2 hours or maybe more. The event occurs only if my system is idle (for example: at night when i fall to sleep and i put on a playlist. It is not Winamp because i have already tried with Windows Media Player. When i realize that this has happened i move the mouse the computer comes out of power saving mode and it brings me to my desktop where although i have a moving mouse cursor nothing else works and when i try to click anywhere on the screen it hangs up totally not able to invoke the task manager nor refreshing the desktop. I am on Windows Vista Ultimate 32 - bit
