I just did a clean up on my laptop. After this I noticed that every time I put my laptop to sleep it was shut down completely. So when I close the lid and then turn it back on this is what happends. It boots up, the fans start kicking in. Then I hear 2 ticks (I think from hard drive). and then it takes like 15 - 30 seconds and then I would be able to log in. And when I am logged in everything I had open like a browser was closed (Like after a complete shut down). I don't know how to fix this or if there even is a fix. I just really hope it doesn't have anything to do with my hard drive.
Please someone help.
I just booted up my laptop and it kept doing a scan while the boot then it would restart, and do it over again for like half a hour. I launched in safe mode, restarted and then it finally booted up again.
