Whenever I leave my computer for a short amount of time say 15+mins and all its doing is d/l something for me everything but the mouse freezes up for a short period of time, sometimes it can be a min or 2 tho and all i can do is move the mouse around. Any idea how i can prevent this?

Do you get BSOD's or is it just that the computer freezes up?

Open Task Manager, look in the list of programs running, sort by CPU usage, and also by RAM when you check that. Any programs using up a resources?

Turn off Hibernate or Sleep or both. Also try another usb port or mouse.
