System running low on resources, cannot log on

When a user closes the lid on my A505 and then someone reopens the computer later, I get a message that says "Your system is running low on resources. You cannot log on as a new user.  Please use an account that has already been logged on".  System is set to go into sleep mode when the lid is closed.

Which A505? Which Windows?

 

How long has this been happening? What changes have you made about then?

Re: System running low on resources, cannot log on

Hi Jerry - I'm running Windows 7 (64-bit).  The issue has been ongoing for many months, so I have no idea about system changes that could be causing the problem.

You have Windows set to do what when the lid is closed? I set mine to Do Nothing.

 

   Control Panel > Power Options > Choose what closing the lid does

Jerry - Thanks for trying, but I really want the computer to enter sleep mode when the lid is closed, not Do Nothing.

You didn't tell us what you had it set to.

 

There may be a conflict with something else loading to memory. Do some clean-boot troubleshooting.

Have you tried to find the running programs that have the biggest memory leak or usage?

 

Leaving a browsers or gadgets open may be too much for your resources like RAM.
