|"I have to hard reset it "|
What does this mean what are you doing?
It sound like you are not turning your laptop off properly. If you just close the lid before it completely shuts down it will go into stand by mode. So when you open your computer later it is still on just in stand by. When you hit the power button it take a few minutes to load your last known configuration which makes it appear as if nothing is happening. Better yet when does wake from the stand by if registers the last thing you did which was a shut down and performs that.
How are you shutting your system off? Are you waiting until it completely shuts down before closing the lid? IF so do you want to change it so that it shuts down when closing the lid instead of going into stand by?
