I use Vista 32 bit, on a Dell 1525. My browser is Mozilla Firefox, and I use IGoogle as my Home Page (and gmail).
The problem is that my computer restarts on its own, after it's been unused for a while, and the desktop screen that comes up has a dialogue box titled "Connect to www.google.com" with this message:
"The server Google
at Please log in to your Google Account requires a username and password."
The screen then shows both my username and my password, and if I select OK, things work fine.
Any ideas (1) why the restarting, and (2) why the Google message?
