If I leave my VAIO computer unattended for a few minutes after starting it for the first time or made initial settings on Windows Me, the system hangs. Why is this so?

Microsoft has confirmed the symptom and is investigating on it. Do not leave your machine untouched for more than 10 minutes after you made its initial settings at the fist startup.

If the symptom occurs, keep the power switch pressed for more than 4 seconds to turn off the computer and turn it on again.

For the details of this symptom, please refer to the relevant solution available in Microsoft Technical Support Website.
