If I boot my Win8 PRO pc (OEM fresh install) and walk away prior to signing in as a User there have been several occasions where the "lock screen" has frozen and will not revel the user list. Mouse clicks and keyboard presses are seemingly ineffective and I have to resort to holding the power button to turn off the PC, not a wise move. I did get squirrely last night and did an extreme shaking and right clicking mouse gesture which worked on unfreezing the initial screen, allowing me to log-in. Is there some setting I can do to avoid this "delay in log-in screen freeze"? This is not a case where Hibernate has kicked in, I checked those settings.

I can see where having the choice between the two OSs would be utilitarian. I had to choose which one to purchase and, since Release Preview did not have any issues, I thought Win8 was the way to go...I wanted to be in on the ground floor of the new OS, so to speak. I guess I could always buy a Win7 OEM license as well, but it is not transferrable the way Win8 OEMs are.
I never had any bad experiences with Window 7 so far after using it for the last 2 years. It's a pity about Windows 8 as it was starting to grow on me. It good to have the choice OK. I think there will be a lot of people reporting issues with Windows 8 going forward until at least Microsoft release a service pack for it. Personal I think the OS was pushed out to fast, but that's just my opinion!
