If l leave my L/T in hibernation then close down a long screen comes on saying 'are you sure you want to log off 'as theres other users on this computer and they will lose data' don't know what to do

Running XP? Do you actually have more than one account on the machine?

If no-one else is logged in, then you've probably left your own account running when you hibernated. Log off first, then hibernate from the Welcome screen, and I think that will probably sort it. Hopefully.

Actually, having re-read your post; what do you mean by "If l leave my L/T in hibernation then close down...."?
Hibernation is a form of shutdown, in which your Windows session is saved to disk for quick startup. So the PC would already be powered down after hibernation has been selected.

If you're selecting standby while logged on, then trying to shut down, I think this would create this problem. Hope that helps.

What l was saying was if l leave the laptop for a little while and it is little then go back the screen is halved and on one side the left it says are you sure ect on right side l just have to click my user name and l get straight onto the desk top
