Photoshop CC 2015 often does not start correctly. In the task manager, I see the process running, but neither the welcome window nor the UI appears. I use PS on Intel Core i7 under Windows 8.1. This seems to be happening after my PC has been put to energy saving mode. A reboot always helps.

If a reboot is needed, then something is going on at the system level -- possibly a bad driver, a network printer or server that is disconnected and taking a while to timeout, malware, etc.

Thanks for the response. But I wonder why the only program that is not working is PS. Lightroom works for instance.

Without knowing the problem on your system, we can't even guess.
But different applications use different APIs, and if one of those OS APIs has a bug - it will only affect the applications calling that API.
Or it could be a whitelisting issue with antivirus, etc.
