A lot of times I put it on sleep mode and when I open it up, it wont let me type the password and I then need to close it and open it again until it lets me type it.
The color wheel also appears sometimes. It will sometimes display websites in the wrong way. Please help. Here is the EtreChech I got. Let me know if theres something I can do

Sorry, again, for the really late reply John. So, the update on my problem: my mac is really laggy again in general and  when I open the screen to get it out of sleep mode, it will take some seconds for it to let me type the password. l open apps and they take more than usual to load. I see the multicolor "loading" wheel quite a bunch of times. Please help. Below is a new EtreCheck report.
