Preferred Solution: Problems with hibernation and sleep mode

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I left my comp on overnight and now it has either gone to a deep sleep or hibernation and it wont come on now.
I have an Acer Aspire L320 running on windows vista.
Wheb i tried to wake it up nothing happened and now comp wont work.

I have tried restarting, unplugging then starting, i thought i had tried everything but i am missing something.
When i do try to switch the comp on again the fans make a noise then nothing, does this mean that something really bad has happened?

Can anyone give me some advice and help?
I have read other hibernation problems but none of them seem to coever this problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

A:computer in sleep mode/hibernation

Hello Sandki, and welcome to Vista Forums.

See if resetting the CMOS will allow it to start again afterwards. If you are not sure what jumpers to cross on the motherboard to reset the CMOS, then you can remove the flat wide watch looking battery for a few minutes and place it back in to reset the CMOS. Be sure to unplug the computer first though.

Hope this helps,

Thank you very much!

These were caused by your K57nd60x.sys, Broadcom NetLink Gigabit Ethernet NDIS6.x Unified Driver..
I would re-install it with the newest revision.

As in the title, I get the blue screen everytime I log on back from sleep or hibernation to windows. I have seriously tried A LOT to solve this by reading online, included this forum. All scans show me the computer is fine. Nothing works. Windows still crashes a couple of minutes after I log back in from sleep or hibernate.

Please help me. I ran the DM log collector (see attached zip) and truly hope you can solve this problem for me.

Best Regards

Please run the DM Log Collector tool again, there are only dump files saved.
Before uploading the zip, please make sure it contains at least following files18 .txt,

If it doesn't, please try booting in safe mode and run the DM Log Collector tool again.

Hi, hope you'll help me.
Got repeatedly BSOD when turning to hibernation/sleep mode.
- Windows 7 x86 (32 bit)

Many thanks!

A:BSOD - hibernation/sleep mode

Hi there,

This seems pretty straightforward, with your Broadcom network drivers as the cause. Install these updated ones: - Ethernet NIC NetLink Driver Downloads

See if that does the trick; if not, post back with a new report.

Hi guys,

I have tried to search in the forum for the same symptoms, but it seems my problem is different from the others.. even some of the hotfix recommended for them are not applicable for me.
Anyway, I really hope that someone can help me pinpoint what is the problem I actually have here...

Whenever I try to put the computer on sleep mode or hibernation mode, it will turn black and then stay for quite some time, then it just shutdown..
When I turn it back on, it says that there is a BSOD (I forgot to screencapture the message detail given, let me know if it's needed)

I have attached here the zip file from the SF Diagnostic Tool as instructed.

Since my zip file is more than 8MB, I have to split it into 2 files.. contains the most of the files needed contains old .dmp files

Thanks in advance..

A:BSOD when going to sleep or hibernation mode

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% (and 52%) and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Alcohol 120% (and 52%) at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Uninstall McAfee Using McAfee Removal Tool.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Now, we are seeing that the SecuRemote Miniport (c:\windows\system32\drivers\fw.sys) is causing some issues there.

8356e09c 9b0c0c8cUnable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\fw.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for fw.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for fw.sys
It is a ZoneAlarm Driver, used in Kaspersky too.

We need to see how it is running without Kaspersky. Uninstall Kaspersky using Kaspersky Removal Tool. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Let us know the results.

Hi guys!

The thread title about sums it up! When I try to wake my computer from sleep mode, my monitor gets no signal/is black. The "rest" of the computer seems to wake up just fine.

The monitor was working fine with Windows Server 2008, after sleep mode, but I just recently upgraded to windows 7.

I have already tried:

displayswitch /extend
displayswitch /internal

in a .bat file

using "Hibernate Trigger", "Power Triggers" and Windows task sheduler.

Doesn't work at all for me.

Any idea what might be wrong/how to fix it?
Any help is appretiated!

I ve been having troubles with my laptop powering on and off as well as shutdown) mode, Windows state issues hibernation, (sleep 7 power any time I attempt to use sleep standby mode or hibernation The machine is a Lenovo G s running Windows x Ultimate Service Pack In the mornings when I try to power it on it usually takes multiple attempts before the computer will get past the splash Windows 7 power state issues (sleep mode, hibernation, shutdown) screen although all the lights Windows 7 power state issues (sleep mode, hibernation, shutdown) on the front light up as though the machine was working Now once it does boot it runs pretty much perfectly but if I try to put the machine into standby mode the computer will never actually reach that point the light on the front indicating that the computer is on remains a solid color whereas when it reaches sleep mode it is Windows 7 power state issues (sleep mode, hibernation, shutdown) supposed to blink on and off instead Further the computer tells me Windows was not shut down correctly and gives me the options for Safe Mode etc when I boot it but nothing ever appears in the Event Log to help me troubleshoot this problem On the bright side I have a few crash dumps from my machine which I have attempted to translate into a readable format using Windows Debugging Tools I have attached these files to this post They seem to indicate I have a driver issue but I have already downloaded all of the most up-to-date drivers for my specific machine from the Lenovo website Or so I believe I also included a driver list in this post's attachments just in case I am very frustrated by these difficulties Any help suggestions etc you can offer would be most appreciated Also if I need to offer any additional information please inform me what else you need to know Thanks in advance Mohawk

A:Windows 7 power state issues (sleep mode, hibernation, shutdown)

right off you should try to do a driver update.  Or roll back depending on if the issue started after an update.
For a update of drivers go to Lenovo's website, and look for the drivers and updates.
Perform them in this order as needed.
all others. (unless Lenovo recommends other wise).  The most important are the chipset then BIOS.
Do a backup and recovery/ restore before you update your drivers.  After update use CCleaner (download it here) 
Download, launch and run the registry tab. 
After all are completed shutdown again and reboot.  Still have the issue?  Make sure to check in the control pannel under hardware for the power options, and turn off the sleep mode and see if hybernate works.  Then try it again with just sleep mode working. 
Also program like Itunes, any backup tools, and antivirus programs can cause your computer to run while it should be sleeping, and error when you wake it. Disable them,
in run type msconfig and hit ENTER
Click yes if a popup windows comes up that is UAC
Then in the first tab click on Selective Startup and uncheck Load Startup Items
Then go to Services Tab and click the box that says "Hide all Microsoft Services"
After that disable all that remain.
In the Startup tab all should be unchecked.
Click apply and OK.
When it asks for reboot allow it. 
Then is a Clean Run of of Windows.  Check to see if they error is still present.  If not, then go into startup and click half the list to enable and reboot.  Then keep doing this untill you find the program.
If the startup is OK do the same in the services tab.  When you get the issue narrowed down, stop it or uninstall it if you want to and that should fix it.
Still not working then you can try this tool  (warning, this can fix issues, or make them worse, depending on the issue and type.  I have had nothing but success with it, but again that is why you made a restore point before this happened)
All in One Repair found here.
Good luck

I am running the 32bit version of Vista and am using Realtek High Definition Audio Drivers. There is a known issue with the sound not working after resuming from sleep or hibernation.

Microsoft has a hotfix on their website for this very issue (

Only thing is, when I download the hotfix, I am told it does not apply to my system. I made sure I downloaded the 32bit version and I am running the latest version of Realtek drivers.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can apply this fix or any other solutions to my problem?

Hi As the topic says My laptop had its HDD die and replaced with a new I erased the GB samsung M SSD cache drive installed Win and re-registered windows with key from BIOS Updated all drivers BIOS etc Now I ve updated to Windows Installed latest Intel Rapid Storage drivers and acceleration seems to be working again on regular startup After upgrade ran windows update for everything ran through all Power options even tried powercfg h off but to no avail When I set the laptop to Sleep Standby mode it shuts down the screen etc as it should when entering sleep mode normally but almost immidiately after turning off screen etc the HDD or SSD i can t tell is active for a loong while minute or more - sometimes with full fan speed- before the laptop is finished entering sleep mode It s as if it still uses hibernation mode writing to the hiberfile on the HDD and not using the SSD How can i mode, sleep upgrade, proceeds Vostro enter windows 3460 10 hibernation correct to wont After get After windows 10 upgrade, Vostro 3460 wont enter correct sleep mode, proceeds to hibernation the speedy sleep-mode from windows where it enters and leaves sleep state almost immidiately Cheers Gabriel Hansen

A:After windows 10 upgrade, Vostro 3460 wont enter correct sleep mode, proceeds to hibernation

There is a well-hidden file named "Hiberfil.sys", in C:\. Without it, the computer cannot hibernate. To see it...
(1) Open File Explorer to C:\
(2) Click the "View" tab, & then the "Options" button at right.
      Folder Options opens.
(3) At its View tab, uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".
     Put the check back in when done.

The file is over 3 GBs for me...

When "PowerCfg /H OFF" is issued, the hibernate file is immediately deleted...

It is immediately created again by issuing "PowerCfg /H ON", which you should do. Windows wants to hibernate after a period of sleep, even if you haven't yourself clicked to hibernate. It is set to do so at...
(1) R-Clk Power icon in Tray, & select "Power Options".
(2) Click "Change plan settings".
(3) Click "Change advanced power settings".

You have proven you don't have a hibernate problem by having the computer sleep w/o a Hiberfil.sys.
My HDD spins to sleep in a few seconds after the screen goes black (whether or not I've got a Hiberfil.sys). Sleep doesn't write to a file (until enough time has passed), but it does write to RAM. Do you have Support Assist? Open it, click Checkup, & have it do a System Scan - of the memory, especially. Also, check its System History for any recent trouble.

Also, better have it scan the hard drive. I don't know whether pagefile.sys gets involved with sleep in case you haven't got enough RAM. As you've recently had work done, click System Info in Support Assist to see whether you've still got all your RAM...

Is the computer generally slow - not just when you put it to sleep?

A:Startup/hibernation/sleep Problems

While I haven't seen this exact problem, I have had problems with drivers from HP (and from Microsoft). I'd suggest downloading the most current video drivers from the manufacturer of your video chipset (I presume that yours uses the Intel graphics chipset), then uninstall the HP drivers and install the Intel drivers. Often the computer manufacturer's add "features" that just aren't (IMO) needed and also cause issues with the drivers themselves.

Hello, Any help is much appriciated.

I get the following:

last attempt to resume the system from its previous location failed
attempt to resume again:

Continue with system resume
Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot

The only problem is my keyboard wont work. It is a usb. So i tried the old skool plug in, I think its call a ps2. and no luck there.

When I push the power button it acts like its starting from scratch and I have tried the f12 before the screen changes and it does take me to a boot menu screen but the keyboard does not work again.

I have tried the motherboard disc idea but it wont boot with the disc and same for the vista disc.

Hi everyone I apologize if this question has been asked before but the last two and a half weeks of troubleshooting a bad RAM issue fixed and bad wireless adapter driver issue fixed have exhausted my sanity Mostly because my computer expertise is so limited This is my newest and hopefully last major issue I'm contending with Sleep Mode - secs to enter sleep mode secs for system to wake up and for desktop to flash up but with limited interactivity mouse pointer moves start button amp menu work but items can't be selected right-clicking works on taskbar and certain system tray icons not on desktop background image right-clicking on one item or another causes the system to appear frozen with only the circular activity icon going Pressing the reset button below Power initiates the boot sequence but now leads to quot Resuming Windows quot The screen stays blank for - mins The desktop flashes up normal but the busy activity light will continue to flicker for another minutes In other related threads I've seen mention of things like Power Management settings e g setting to High Performance amp disabling Hybrid Sleep setting the ACPI help! Sleep problems and more, Mode to S or S in the BIOS and checking in the Event Viewer for the culprit But I still seem to be doing wrong What is the most systematic way of approaching this problem from the start What system diagnostic tools can I run to start finding the source of the problem s Not sure if related Event Viewer has been logging a whole lot of errors such as WHEA-Logger some kind of quot fatal quot processor-related error SideBySide and Service Control Manager something D driver-related for my video card Sleep Mode problems and more, help! Thank you all in advance for any and all input you can provide

A:Sleep Mode problems and more, help!

I highly suggest that you use hibernate instead of sleep. It may not be as convient, but it's a whole lot more reliable on PCs. Sleep is for MACs.

Incase you're wondering about the difference:

Sleep turns on some system components but keeps vital ones going so that when you tell it to the computer can wake up in an instant.

Hibernate moves your recent memory to a spot on the HDD so that boot up takes a bit less time.

I'm guessing that waking from sleep = 5-10 seconds, Hibernate = 20-40 seconds

Everytime I press the sleep button on my keyboard my computer, it goes to sleep but if i leave it for more than about 15 mins in sleep mode i can not get it to awake. I move the mouse and press keys on my keyboard and nothing. It kinda stays permently on sleep mode unless i press the restart button and reboot. Also one time during the startup my computer made a growling sound and on screen it said that overclocking failed and gave me the option to restore defaults. Which is odd b/c i never meant to overclok in the first place and set the settings for a normal rundown. thanks

I'm not really sure if this is a software or hardware problem. In the last few weeks I've found that sometimes when I take my computer out of sleep mode, the screen stays blank. The only thing on the screen is my tv's 'no signal found' message. When I go to press the reset or power button it restarts instantly (whereas if it was working and the screen just having a bad connection, I would have had to hold the power button down for a few seconds first). When it is restarting I have to delete the restoration point before it can continue properly. What could be causing this? My theory is a memory problem, but I want to check with others before I go out and spend lots of money on parts.

I installed Windows 7RCa few weeks ago, and it's been working great. However, just in the last few days my Sleep mode started acting funny. Sometimes when I select it it works fine, but every 3 or 4 times it doesn't completely enter sleep mode. Activity stops and the monitor shuts down, but the Power LED stays lit up. Then when I try to re-start it wont, it just stays off with the power light on. The only way to start it again is to switch the PSU off and on again, then to restart, in which case it doesn't re-boot but comes out of sleep mode! Anyone else having a problem like this, or have any ideas for a fix? Thanks in advance for any tips.

You may try installing this hotfix, if the problem arose after installing SP1: A crash memory dump file is not created, or hibernation does not work, when you use a SCSIport miniport driver as the startup device driver in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

You may also try flashing the BIOS to the latest version, as it sounds more like a firmware problem than a software one.

Hi there, sorry if this is in the wrong forum for this issue.

I am having issues with sleep mode. I have a Dell Studio XPS 435MT, running 64 bit home premium vista with service pack 1.

After the computer wakes from sleep, all seems fine, and the desktop is always shown- however it won't let me click and open any applications or do anything until I control-alt-delete. I dont have to actually do anything in task manager, I just close it, and then the computer runs normally. If I had left applications open, those will then show up.

This issue happens regardless of screen saver use, and regardless of whether I have applications open or not. If I let the computer sleep without any applications running, I still have to start task manager before I can do anything.

A:New PC with sleep mode problems and BSOD

I'm not sure if this is your case but here it goes.
When you do not use your computer for a specific period of time it will go to sleep.
Prior to going to sleep it must update the hibernation file in the C: drive root directory.
You will not see this file as it is hidden. So whatever may be left open an unsaved is stored here until you wake it up. Such as a word document or excel spreadsheet that was not saved. When you wake up some memory has a little problem and freezes the system.

OK, Now you return and want to wake your computer up. Not sure how you do it but I just hit me start button and everything starts back up.

Before the computer starts backup it tried to read the hibernation file and get you back where you were.
I have heard in the past year many times this doesn't work right. Can't tell you why but at least this is a start.

I personally have shut down the making of my hibernation file and do not use it on my desktop or laptop. It makes the bootup longer and the file can be very large in size.

If you want to check out how to shut down the hybernation file/more look under control panel and Power Options. You may find more here on step by stepp. Maybe someone will jump in and help more.

This is just my thoughts what could be your problem.
Good luck and keep us posted on your solution.

Hey there. I've been having some problems with reconnecting to the internet after the computer has been in sleep mode. Unfortunately I'm living in a rental which is an older house and connecting the computer directly to the modem is impossible without a looooong cable due to the silly location of cable points etc.

I've been using a wireless adaptor which is a D-Link DWA-125. It works fine, until the computer awakens from sleep, then there's trouble. It says it's connected to the internet but it won't actually work, when you run diagnostics it says it can't find a problem. I've disabled the computer from powering down the adaptor, which makes no difference. Can anyone offer any suggestions? I'm running Windows 7 64x if that helps. Thank you.

I've had this problem intermittently on my laptop for the past 2 years however it has been occuring more often recently.

Basically sometimes when I click the sleep button on Windows 7, the screen fades to black as usual. However the fan keeps running (sounds like when it's on full load) and the power button light stays on endlessly. I always have to force shut it down and restart it.

What can be the issue?

Hi joseph10444.

Such a situation may occur when some driver (mostly the PnP device drivers depending on the ACPI configuration) fail to response within a stipulated time period during the power state change.

Let us see some data. Upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
Upload the list of all the third party drivers Using NirSoft DriverView :
Download and execute Driverview
View > Hide Microsoft Drivers
Edit > Select all
File > Save Selected Items
In the Save dialog, Set the path to desktop, Put "Driverview" in the name field, and save.
Zip the .txt file and upload it.
Those files will give us a closer look to the issue.

When I try to shut the computer down, it frequently stalls on the "shutting down" screen, and no matter how long I leave it, it will stay there, so I have to manually turn it off. Of course, this is not ideal. Second, when the computer is coming out of sleep mode, often times I will not be able to connect to the internet (the network icon will have a ! in the lower right hand corner of the screen) and when I attempt to reboot the computer, it again freezes. I am running a 64 bit operating system, and any help you can lend would be greatly appreciated!!

First off, I can tell you that- when you awake your computer, the connection will be offline in some cases. Mine does that too.

About the core of the problem, i'm stumped.

Over the last couple of months my computer has been set mode possibly after are that sleep Problems related, Two Crash to go into sleep mode if it is left for more than minutes and for the most part it works just fine The problem that sometimes arises Two Problems that are possibly related, Crash after sleep mode is that when I try to wake it from sleep mode it just hangs on a black screen which I am thinking that it crashes and goes into sleep mode from this state The only way that I can go anywhere from here is to completely shut the computer down by holding the power button which I really don't like to do unless completely necessary I have done scans with MBAM and SuperAntiSpyware and cleaned what was there which was mainly unused cookies but no spyware or anything like that The second problem may or may not be related but seemed to start happening around the same time It is not really anything that causes a problem as such but just a little annoying What happens is that when I initially start my pc it seems to take a long time to go through it's initial tests that it does It doesn't display the POST test but I think it is this that is taking the time I haven't changed anything hardware wise and the software is pretty much the same as it was before these problems started to happen I hope someone can help me get to the bottom of these problems Thanks in advance

could be bad RAM. Can you follow this tutorial to check it?

the second thing hints at a hardware problem. Can you post what is the entry that runs for the most time? (the line that remains the last of the stack for a lot of time before it writes another line under it)

You may want to download and update your Wi-Fi card's driver.

Also, disable any power saving mode from the adapter itself from Device Manager.

After installing the 3G modem & Wireless manager updates of September 29th, my laptop started having troubles waking up from sleep mode. Most of the times I had to hard-shutdown. I currently solved the issued changing options for sleep mode in control panel, mostly by disabling advanced features (hybrid sleep, usb sleep, network adapters sleep). However I'd like to solve the issue definitely as the current options require a longer time to enter sleep mode.

My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite Pro T130 running Windows 7 64 bit.

Thanks for helping :-)

A:Problems XP Sleep Mode vs. Normal Shutdown, and related error events

Hello again!

After a thorough search - heavens, how convoluted can Microsoft get ? - I stumbled upon a MS article advertising a hotfix for exactly the problem encountered with the 1003 Cat 102 event (article 925922).

However, when receiving that hotfix, which is apparently quite new, MS says that it has not been thoroughly tested. What am I to do? Wait until they come up with yet another service pack (an unlikely event!) or just try my luck after all necessary precautions? In other words, has anyone had any previous experience with this?

Best regards,

I have a few issues with my Sound Blaster Z card...

The first is that when my computer wakes up from sleep mode the sound stops functioning. In Foobar2000 I get this error message.

Unrecoverable playback error: A device attached to the system is not functioning. (0x8007001F)

I can't get any sound from the device but it still shows up in my device manager. When I restart my computer everything is normal and working again.
Second I'm not sure how to get it setup so that when I unplug my headphones from the front port the sound comes out of my monitor. I always have to change my default device in the control panel.

Any help would be great!

A:A few Creative Sound Blaster Z problems. (Sleep Mode, Front Ports)

Even though the device still shows up in the device manager; there still could be something causing some sort of glitch here. i would completely uninstall the sound blaster in the device manager; reboot; and reinstall the drivers using the disc that came with the sound card(if you have the disc) and then update the drivers and other sound blaster software if there are any updates available for it.

I forgot to turn off the hibernation / sleep in windows 7 and forgot to safely remove the external 3.5 desktop hard drives from it. I think my external drives need safely remove

The computer had gone into sleep and then it powered up suddenly when I pressed a key on keyboard
will this cause any bad to my hard drives and the precious data? thanks

No transferring of the data between hard drives before I was away from the computer, but I think my external drives require safely remove in which I didn't do and every thing powered up suddenly when i came back and hit the keyboard, i don't feel good

A:Hibernation or sleep?

Normally I would always use safely remove hardware. But if you wern't coping any files to or from it, it should be fine. Nothing should really happen to it. You could get a lose of data if you were coping files to it. But since you wern't everything should be ok.

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and was hoping you all could help me with a problem I have had for a while.

Essentially, my computer blue screens during sleep and then shuts down. Most of the time it is related to something called "Driver State Power Failure." I suspect it is related to my display driver, but I recently uninstalled that, and used windows update to reinstall it, and I am still having the same issue.

I hope I followed all the directions correctly - I ran SF Diagnostic Tool, created a folder, zipped that, and uploaded it to this thread.

Any help you all can provide would be much appreciated!!

Hi all I am running 8.1 and am trying to backup my hard drive but after so long the screen goes black and stops the backup,
also I have move the mouse to get my log in screen which I do . It then carries on from where it stopped.
I tried extending the screen saver but that doesn't make any different so what can it be?? is it sleep mode or hibernation.
if so could you tell me how to switch them off please!!!!.

A:how to turn off Hibernation/Sleep

Keep it powered up, go into power settings and set to not allow it to go to sleep when plugged in, same as not letting hard drive shutting down. As for shutting off Hibernate, which will also disable Fast Boot. Open up a Command Window in Desktop, Windows key + "X" and choose "Command Prompt (Admin)". Then enter Powercfg /h off

Hello everyone,

Recently my Lenovo T431s running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit started running into BSOD almost everytime I put it to sleep. Usually it goes to sleep, but when I get back it is already running and sometimes will show the BSOD and sometimes will just show a blank screen.

I already researched similar issues and tried a few approaches, but to no success.

I have uploaded the information generated from the DM Log Collector. Please let me know if you need any other information.

Thank you very much in advance!

Welcome idonthack to the windows 7 forum.,

You might check to see if your ethernet card is set to wake on lan. in the devices, properties of your ethernet adapter, either wireless or wired. One could be set to wake on lan activity and most lans do a lot of activity.

On your other thread I saw that Gregrocker has suggested you to uninstall Tuneup Utility which you haven't.

System Optimisers

Please remove the following software;

Start Menu\Programs\TuneUp Utilities 2013 Public:Start Menu\Programs\TuneUp Utilities 2013 Public
Start Menu\Programs\TuneUp Utilities 2013\All functions Public:Start Menu\Programs\TuneUp Utilities 2013\All functions Public

This software is a known cause of BSOD's. The windows 7 operating system does not require these registry cleaning software. They often tune-down rather than tune-up and can wreck the OS beyond repair. Microsoft have improved Windows 7 significantly and it is much better at organising and optimising itself than its predecessors. Check this, this and this thread for evidence.

If you feel the need to use a registry cleaning or optimisation software, most of us recommend the use of CCleaner but make sure you back up the registry before making letting ccleaner delete anything.

Please uninstall the following programs as well:

So I would like a list of the pros and cons of each way of "turning off" my Vista Laptop (Thought that is a definately important factor).

So I been always using shutdown as I found it was good to save power and keep the memory fresh each time at the cost of a little more time to start up.

So what would be the pros and cons of the 3 (Generally speaking)

A:Sleep vs Shutdown vs Hibernation

With credit to Notebook Review

Hibernate takes a snapshot of everything you got on RAM (including any windows and apps running) and saves it to a special hard disk file and then shuts the computer down, when you resume from hibernation the computer boots a bit faster than a normal power up bootup. This method does not consume any power while the computer is off.

Uses: When you are not going to use the computer for a few hours or more.

Sleep, basically shuts your computer down except some components like RAM, so the next time you resume, it will boot almost in an instant. However, this method consumes battery power.

Uses: When you are just leaving the computer for a few minutes or hours, like at lunchtime or something like that.
End of quote from NoteBook Review

That being said, boot the computer at least once a week, to correct corruption etc.

Most of the time this happens. Sometimes it's fine for a week or so. It seemed to start after updating my logitec drivers. The BSOD shows KS.SYS as an offending file.

A:BSOD when recovering from sleep or hibernation

Enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier -Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.


Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.


Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point Manually before enabling DV.

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

I deleted accidentally (!) the hibernation file via disk cleanup and also I think cocked up some power settings on my laptop.

Now it powers on and after the Toshiba splash screen all I get is a black screen.

I have seen all the solutions about powercfg, etc but how can I actually make any changes when I can't get into it in the first place?

All the lights are on but there's nobody at home

I'd be really grateful for help as I dont want to have to leave it in anywhere if I can do it myself

I live in a place where we have power shortages from time to time. I have my Dell desktop pc attached to a UPS and i have configured the pc to go to sleep after 5 minutes when on UPS. Is there anyway to wake up the pc automatically once the power is on? I have connected my UPS with USB cable to the pc, and the pc treats the UPS as a battery. I use this pc as a media centre so this feature is something i really need.
I am on Windows 7 Ultimate.


A:Wake the PC from sleep/hibernation when power comes up

With it being a Dell the option may very well be hidden (with no way to unhide it), but have a look in the bios under the Power options for anything relating to "restore on power loss". If it is there it is likely set to disabled (the default on most if not all motherboards), set it to enabled and that should do it.

This happens very frequently. It happens on and off. I am running Windows 7 professional on Dell Inspiron E1505 and when my computer goes into hibernation ( it doesn't matter if it's on battery or plugged in), sometimes I can reload the computer physically. Sometimes or most times, it shows a black screen and I have to manually shut the PC up and then reload it losing everything which I had before going into hibernation.

I recently purchased an HP G42 - 240US. HP G42-230US Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

The notebook came with Windows 7 Home premium 64x.

Whenever I put the computer into sleep or hibernation mode it becomes unresponsive. The only way to get it to respond is to restart it by holding down the power button and restarting. After which, I get the msg windows has recovered from a serious error.

I had tried doing a bios update but that has not helped. The computer still freezes/crashes when the lid is closed or put in to sleep/hibernation mode.

I currently have no peripherals plugged in, and there is no biometric scanner.

Any help and or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Hi, so I have 10,000msecond(2.7hour) shortcut to shutdown my computer ("C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -s -t 10000") which i use for watching films before bed, just encase i sleep half way through but I was wondering if there was a way to make a similar shortcut but instead of making your computer shutdown in a few hours make it sleep in a few hours time.

Now I know how to make a sleep shortcut but that makes the computer sleep instantly, and putting "-t 10000" at the end of "C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0" doesnt work. Apparently their is a way to do it if you install some software but I don't want that.

Anyone know if its possible with just windows command shotcuts?

0x116 bugchecks indicate an attempt to reset the graphics card and display driver failed to respond within the allocated time interval.
It's mainly caused by a failing GPU or bad display driver.

I suggest updating your display driver to the latest version.

What is the product number? Just to note, the keyboard drive is provided by Microsoft and is standard for it to be that old as keyboard technology has not changed drastically in recent years.  The only way to update the keyboard driver is to right-click it in device manager and select update driver.  This will force the system to reach out to Windows Update and check for a new driver.  More than likely, there isn't a new driver.  Since you are getting activity, such as the light on the mouse, I doubt it is related to the wake setting in device manager. How long has this been an issue?  If it is a recent issue, have you tried a Microsoft System Restore?

My laptop is a HP ProBook 4445s with AMD A8-4500m APU, and is a fairly recent model. It has been experiencing random BSODs when entering sleep or hibernation, so I never get to see the actual screen. I only see the error, the next time I power on. It also seems to be the same problem all the time. Since I had done a drive cleanup, SF Diagnostics can only find 2 BSOD reports, but I assure you that it has been the same problem throughout the two months I have this laptop. It is always:

and always a ntoskrnl.exe issue.

All of the drivers have been updated to the latest that HP has provided here. I can not locate the driver that causes this failure, so I am hoping that people of this forum will be able to find the root cause.

Recently my Dell Inspiron N5110 intel 2.4GHZ, 4Gb Ram, Windows 7 64bit Laptop Refuses to wake from sleep or hibernate. Bios driver?? Worked fine 2 days ago and I dont have an applicable restore point... Also Video and Audio playback get choppy in any player after using not even 2 out of 4gb of RAM. Temporarily I've disabled sleep mode but when not plugged in can be a bit of a battery drainer. Any suggestions would be very helpful and aprreciated. I'm far from a computer tech... THX

A:Laptop won't wake from Sleep/Hibernation, PLZ HELP!

First hope this is the right forum to post this issue Has anyone had any luck seeting up one power plan that will successfully hibernate on a set time-out when you are running on batteries and sleep on a set time-out if you are running on wall power When I try setting up a plan that way at some point it will not seem to ever hibernate I have followed the power plan tutorials herein which are detailed and quite helpful I think pretty much to the T To make my system hibernate consustently on a time-out it seems that I have to have it hibernate when on batteries and hibernate when on wall and Sleep Plan a Within Power Hibernation power which I prefer it to sleep You can't have it do both hibernate from batteries and sleep if you Hibernation and Sleep Within a Power Plan are on wall power At least that seems to be the case with my inconsistent power plan performance Hopefully I have explained this so it makes sense Hibernation and Sleep Within a Power Plan

A:Hibernation and Sleep Within a Power Plan

Do both sleep and hibernate appear in the Advanced power options lists for your laptop?

Try setting sleep at one minute and hibernate at 3 minutes to test both modes.

If either fail to appear then it is a graphics driver issue.

if they fail to trigger then it can be many things, first suspect is wake timers in Power Mgmt. tab of mouse and keyboard drivers.

After I updated Windows
8 to Windows 8.1 system
stops processing incoming connections (PPTP,L2TP) after
sleep or hibernation.

Process System (PID 4) does not open
port 1723. Does not work PPTP,
or L2TP. No records in logs are present. Restart the service
"Routing and Remote Access"
does not solve the problem. Reinstallation of system doesn't solve a problem. The problem disappears after reboot.

The only way to avoid the bug -
stop the service "Routing and Remote Access"
before going into sleep mode or hibernation
and then start it after waking up the system.

There is a suspicion that this is a bug
in the system kernel. What could be the
problem and where to start searching for a solution?
