I should have said, I'll discuss different approaches you may take to work around the problem.

I'll discuss different approaches you may want to take to eliminate the inconvenience.  Some may be obvious, some may not, or you may not want to do them.
 
I don't know what might cause the problem.  Of course, you can shut down and turn the power off as you found.  I'm not sure how Windows presents options in the shutdown dialog these days.  If there is just a hibernate option, you should be able to shut off power.  But if it is a sleep/hibernate hybrid, don't do it, And never in sleep.  In other words, if you are going to turn power off at the socket, unless you are sure you are in hibernate, or you have fully shut down, don't do it. 
 
You shouldn't have to deal with the problem often.  You should be able to leave the computer running for a while without starting to get performance problems.  How long may depend on how you use the computer and perhaps on things I don't know about.  But you can experiment or just try a good amount of time such as four days or five days.  You may shorten or lenghthen the time, depending on results.  You don't even have to bother turning off the power.  When you reboot, do it at a time of day when you are doing something else like eating or going to bed or something else.  If you reboot the computer often, such as daily, that is unnecessary.
 
Or, if you really want to reboot daily, or shut down daily, you may do so, leave the power on and not bother turning the power off, and boot again when the delay won't matter because you will be doing something else.
 
And let's say you want to reboot when you intend to use the computer, such as when installing a program.  Shut down, turn the power off, as you found solves the problem, then boot after turning it on again. 
 
In short, you could try to solve the problem but doing so at this point my be disruptive and waste enough time that you may just want to leave things as they are.  It can be easily and conveniently worked around.

I have a solid state drive that's 5 years old this year.  I use another hard drive for my data.  I don't think it's that, because if I remember to turn off the power at the plug and turn it back on, it seems to work fine.  I tried the suggestions on the websites you sent Gene, and my drivers are up to date and fast boot is disabled.

Re: consumer celular network and other providers?

Hi Hank, since both of your phones are with AT&T, you would be fine with selecting consumer cellular as your carrier. As they have AT&T towers as well.

Thanks to Andy's recommendation I have now been with them for two years. And if you take us up on our recommendation, just for referring you, we can give you $10 off your next bill and we will also get $10 off of our bill. If we provide you with a phone number that we can receive credits to you. Also, they also have service on the T-Mobile network as well. But they're playing is a little bit more.

Re: JFW and Access

rex wisdom
 

Access is usable with a screen reader. Jaws does not have any keys I am
aware of. You will need to use the F6 key, tab, shift tab, and arrow keys
to navigate through the areas of the screen, and you will have to use the
ribbons to do some other things. I use Access a lot with my massage
business and it is workable with some work. I would suggest you download an
Access for Dummies or something like to get use to navigating Access.

A year or so ago, when I had to update my RealTek audio driver on my Dell desktop computer, I called the Microsoft Disability Answer Desk, and an agent did it for me. So, that's your best bet.

If there is one, what carrier does it use, so I can know what phone to purchase.

Re: looking for $8 per month track phone plan

Gene
 

You may be asking about this plan.  It is for a basic phone and is for text, talk, and lite browsing.
$8.99
30 SERVICE DAYS
30 MINUTES
FOR TALK, TEXT & WEB
 
Track phone is a company.  Your question doesn't apply.  You can use all sorts of phones with Track Phone, but you purchahse a service plan from them.
 
If you just want to do talk and text with a prepaid plan, this plan is much more expensive than the one I use.  My TMobile Plan charges me three dollars a month for half an hour of talk, thirty textx, or any combination that adds up to three dollars.  After that, I am charged ten cents a minute for talk and ten cents per text.  In other words, ten cents a minute.

Re: Repeating 4 Minute Timer

Mike B
 


Hi Alex,
 
Maybe?!  LOL  Just kidding.  Which of the Repeat Time apps are you playing with?  The Simple Repeat Time app works this way:
The 1st screen is minutes.  Flick up / down with 1 finger to set.
 
The 2nd screen is seconds.  Flick up / down with 1 finger to set.
 
The 3rd screen is how many times you want the timer to repeat.  The next scree is Decrement, then increment  Use these buttons to decrease or increase the amount of repeats.
 
Then you have the, Continuous mode on / off and then a Pause button.
 
The Next screen is showing the number, 5, as the default for how many seconds for the timer to wait between repeats.  The next scree is Decrement, then increment  Use these buttons to decrease or increase the time between repeats.
 
Then you have your sound options, then a remove ads button that takes you to a pay for version then you have the, Go, button.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Hi All,

I'm looking for a timer that can be set to repeat itself every 2 to 6 minutes for roughly 1 hour.  This is for some workout programs I want to do on my treadmill.  I've tried using a skill called Interval Notice on the Amazon Alexa Dot, but this skill is so flaky I can't depend on it, so I'm hoping I can find a timer of this nature for the computer since my computer is only about 10 feet from my treadmill.  If anyone knows of such a timer would you please tell me where I can get it?  All input will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks mooy moocho.
