My F6V had a funny issue. When I login to my account, initially the icons appeared for a second or two. Then the screen refreshed and the icons disappeared. I tried to refresh the screen but no result. I had to right click the desktop, deselect the "Show Desktop Icon" and then re-select the "Show Desktop Icon" again. Now the icons appeared. But each time I login again, the same problem happened. Has anyone had this problem? If so what can I do to overcome this?

The same thing happened to me when I installed a newer version of Power4Gear Extreme. I don't know if your problem is related, but click your Power Management button (next to the wireless icon), then "More Energy Options" and then, on the left menu, Power4Gear. Check if your current power state has the Hide Icons or Presentation Mode turned on. If so, turn them off.

(After edit: this is pretty much what rychas said, sorry)

The solution to this problem is to adjust the power/performance mode 'Quiet Office' from within Power4Gear. Select 'no' to 'hide icons' and the problem is gone. Credit for this solution from my perspective goes to 'Mister_Apocalypse' on the 'bleepingcomputer.com' forum. Link:

I absolutely do not understand what made Asus decide to make the availability of icons, part of a power profile. I would appreciate if Asus would quickly issue a fix to get rid of this wonderful feature.

I found it quite hard to figure out why, after logging in, desktop icons appear for a second and then disappear, especially after you've just been installing and configuring a lot of software on your new laptop.
