Windows 8

I learned something today... 

Every time our new computer would go to sleep or hibernate when we woke it up again the desktop icons were gone and the taskbar didn't work...  A bit frustrating!

I then called HP support - sorry but that is a SCAM - I spoke with W. and he said he would have to go into my computer remotely to fix it .  That the fix wasn't an easy one, and the fee would be ---

I said no thank you.  Actually I said "W. I just bought this computer 2 days ago and I'm not paying you to fix anything."  I thanked him and hung up.  So I kept searching the net, someone else had to have had this problem too, right?  Right.

We were set up as a dual screen instead of single.  Who knew.  But if you too have that problem change your settings.

Happy bird again.
