|mmm A friend with a command of English would be useful…; as on-line translations often make tech stuff very confusing… I tried three on-line translation routines… They all refer to an ignition key; and then they go really out into total confusion as to what is actually being said… In effect total rubbish...|
I think 'ignition key" is likely to be either starting up (booting up) - or trying to use the 'start' function (bottom left) - if win-7 r earlier…? More inclined to go for the booting up process, or at least the on/of button…?
This as "when reading/interpreting as it were" the info (given in English) it sounds as though the system freezes (or goes into standby/hibernate/sleep mode) after a little while;. and only either several reboots does it start up again?
Mind you using the word "start" in place of ignition key.. could/would suggest it would appear to be necessary to click on it (the start button - bottom left in win-7 and earlier) a few times before it does anything, (i.e. the system responds…) when the laptop is booted up OK but hasn't been actually used for a while..?
But as you say Derek… A better explanation in English would be most useful; and also which OS is involved...
