I minimise the sites I am using before going for 20 minute teabreak.When I return none of the sites will open, Screen goes black and little blue circle goes round and round as if trying to load.

Have to close down and reload before I can resume work. What is the cause of this problem and how can I fix it?

Any suggestions very much appreciated.

Screensaver crashing? What are your power options configured to do when the machine is idle - screensaver, sleep, hibernate? Here's how to check - http://windows.about.com/od/customizingwindows/ss/setpoweroptions_all.htm

Are your drivers up to date?
