Preferred Solution: Vista reboots when putting Laptopo into 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.)

For the past week my computer will sometimes put itself in sleep mode while I am using it. It doesn't matter whether I'm playing games, word processing or on the internet.

A:Computer Putting Itself In Sleep Mode

Could be a hardware problem. How old is it? Are all the connections okay?

Is it working off a battery? Is it set to shut down when the battery is low?

A:Memory usage goes way down after putting Vista to sleep...

Hello RiffWraithm and welcome to Vista Forums.

This is pretty much controlled by what you have loading at startup and Superfetch in Vista. It loads what it thinks you will need into memory to help Vista run it faster. It learns in time what you may need in memory, so it will fluctuate a bit until it learns your pattern completely. I would recommend that you let Superfetch stay set at the default settings since it does a pretty good job in Vista. Remember, unused RAM is wasted RAM.

If you would like to play around with the Superfetch settings a bit to see if anything may make a difference for you, then these tutorials can help with this.

Unfortunately no DMP's were included.

Please try this way...
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Last night i manually put my computer in sleep mode and went to bed. When i woke up i came down and my computer was rebooting itself then shutting itself down as soon as it rebooted. I stood there and watched it do this about 4 times, all 4 times my screen was black.

I then shut it down manual with the power button then rebooted it and it took me to a "Windows has improperly shut itself down" "Would you like to reboot in normal mode screen? I clicked yes and it took me to windows and it is fine now. What happened and how can i prevent this in the future?

A:Computer crashed in sleep mode then reboots/shuts down unlimited times

update: i just called my computer manufacturer and he said because my GPU card is factory overclocked the lower power state of sleep mode might be the cause of what is crashing it and causing the power cycle to constantly reboot

recently i costom built my computer around the time vista was released, its been working smothly on my comp untill a weeek ago it all went wrong and crashed, to be on the safe side i rebooted in safe mode, after then again reboooting it and putting all my settings back to the way they where i thought that it was all over untill recently i noticed little thigs like video's on u tube or any other site not working, aswell as sertain links on a page would not open. this personaly has confussed me! im kinda stuck on how to get it to go back to wat it used to be like before i went into safe mode, please help me!!!!!!!!!!

thanx!!!! yours greatfully Elan2jay!!

A:after putting vista into safe mode it will no longer opn java script or flash players

Unless you actually made some changes to the configuration, things should have returned to normal once you rebooted from Safe Mode.

Vista's "System Restore" would probably be the quickest fix for this and you will lose nothing by doing it.

However if you are using Internet Explorer, you might want to go to Tools > Add-Ons and make sure that all the Adobe Flash stuff there is present and enabled.

Also in Internet Options > Security Settings > Custom you can reset all settings there to their defaults.

Finally if you are using a 3rd party firewall -- some of these scripts can be blocked by their configurations.

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T400 with Windows Vista (sevice pack 2) and my computer has a number of booting problems. When I shut down the computer either manually with the button or with the shut down option in the start menu, the computer boots down, stays off for 5 seconds then retsarts itself. I have not been able to boot down for months. In addition, I've had tons of problems with sleep and hibernate mode - the computer restarts itself or won't go into the modes.

I've played with the power settings many times and looked up many forums advice for these settings. I also have a clean bill of health regarding viruses/spyware for the bleepingcomputer forum for sypware as of this week. Any help would be apperciated.

A:Numerous BSOD's. Normally caused while in sleep / putting to sleep.

What USB devices have you got installed?

I believe we are looking at a USB device causing a bugcheck.
Do you have a gaming mouse or any mouse drivers installed?

HIDCLASS.SYS appears to be mainly caused by mouse drivers.

Because a lot of driver power state failures are caused by graphics drivers I recommend updating yours as it is very outdated.
Here's some instructions if you are unsure how to update it.

I have HP laptop with vista Home prem. I have the laptop put to sleep 15 min after idle time if it is unplugged and 1 hr if it is plugged.

Is the idle time when there is no mouse movement?

I want the sleep mode but I have problem when downloading. when I download a file longer than 1 hour and leave the computer, I come back after long time to find the computer sleep and the download uncomplete. I can make the wait time longer but I don't want to change each time I download.

Note: Most of the time, I use Internet Download manager for download but sometimes I use the web browser, mega manager or rapidshare downloader.

What exactly is Sleep?how is working?Is there any risk to set computer in Sleep Mode for days?

Shut Down

A:Sleep Mode on Vista

well the best thing to do is go to your power options & set your pc to hibernate after like 3 hours or something. So you can sleep ur pc & then it will hibernate if not turned back on within 3 hours.

Its always better to sleep ur pc if your leaving it for like an hour or two because rebooting causes the pc to use no power managent features so ur burning more electricity than if u left it in standby for an hour or so.

Hibernate is just like shutdown, so your pc can be cut off from the mains, but will still resume afterwards.

Hello, I'm running Vista Ultimate 32-bit and I'm having a problem with the sleep mode. The last time Vista resumed from sleep mode, I received a STOP error.

However, the most bizarre thing was that when I put it into sleep, about 10 seconds later, the system came on by itself! It then showed the STOP error as KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR (STATUS_DEVICE_NOT_CONNECTED).

The Event Viewer says that the system was resumed from sleep by Intel(R) 82801FB/FBM USB Universal Host Controller - 2659. However, the only devices attached to it are 'USB Composite Device' and 'Microsoft USB Wireless Mouse (IntelliPoint)'.

Can anyone help me solve this problem?

I click sleep and the computer using Vista will go to sleep for 15 seconds and then turns back on. When the screen saver comes on it will just stay on even though I have the system set for the monitor to sleep after 20 minutes and the CPU to sleep after one hour. Yes, I can click a key or use the mouse and the screen saver will go off so I can resume any thing that I was working on. Any suggestions?

Alright I recently bought a Acer Aspire 5100 that came pre-installed with Vista on it so all drivers are vista compatible and all the drivers are the newest and updated.

Now when it comes to going into sleep mode...It works on a 50/50 bases...Sometimes it goes into sleep mode perfect and works out good.

Other times it will just sit there...Do some activity on the hard drive and then just stop and screen goes black but the fan and everything is still running....I left it like that for a hour and it just sits there with the fan running and a black screen...After that I can not bring it back to normal operating unless I manually shut it down and reboot...Which looses all data in memory.

I select Sleep from the start menu, and the monitor powers down, but then the laptop shuts off completely and starts rebooting. Then, it says Windows did not shut down properly. I have to select to start windows normally and everything is fine. But why won't it stay in sleep mode?

A:Sleep mode problem in Vista

It may or may not have anything to do with this, but, just to get the obvious out of the way, have you checked out these reasons listed in Help and Support?:

"Why isn't Sleep available?"

You might not be able to put your mobile PC to sleep for one or more of the following reasons:

The video card on your mobile PC doesn't support sleep. Update the driver for your video card, or check the information that came with your mobile PC about your video card and supported drivers. For more information, see Update drivers.

Some settings are managed by your system administrator. For more information, see Why can't I change some settings?

Sleep and other power-saving states are turned off in your mobile PC's basic input/output system (BIOS). To turn sleep on, restart your mobile PC, and then enter the BIOS setup. As your mobile PC starts, instructions typically appear on the screen that indicate which key or keyboard shortcut that you must press to enter the BIOS setup process. Because not all computer manufacturers use the same BIOS, different keys are assigned for this purpose. To learn more, check the information that came with your mobile PC or go to the manufacturer&#8217;s website."

Hello. I have HP Pavillion laptop. I also have Vista. I have never had this issue before. But when I put my computer to sleep, i can wake it up but there will be nothing on the screen and I can't do anything. When I close the laptop and open it, it gives me the same issue. I set it to sleep when I close the laptop. I think it may be due to a recent file that I deleted. Every time I boot my pc I get this icon in my taskbar that says some start up programs have been blocked. In my case there was only one. I don't remember what it was called but I do know that it starts with the letter "g" and ends with a number. What can I do?

A:Windows Vista Sleep Mode

by the way when I said nothing on the screen, i meant that it would be blank. The screen would be black. It looks like my screen saver. My screensaver is blank. So it gave me a blank screen. And just now I found out that after a little while if I move the mouse again, then the desktop shows up. So there is a really long delay when i wake the pc up from sleep mode.

Greetings, I am running Vista Ultimate 64, when ever the machine goes into sleep mode, and I come back to work on it, it takes a long time to wake. Sometimes it goes into a blue screen with the message Windows did not shut down successfully, or Windows shut down to avoid damage to the computer.
Also when she finally boots, it will go into Windows Error recovery with the options of starting in safe mode or start regular.

It's a fairly new Vista installation and it has been doing it since. If I do have to leave the computer for a few hours, I find it easier just to shut down and reboot.

Hi beauparc,

If you wish to find out the reason for a wake from sleep mode,

Start a command prompt, (start menu - enter CMD into search bar and enter), and enter "powercfg -lastwake" without quotes the system should display the last item to cause a wake event.

Hi all, I've looked around the net and seen people with similar problems but none the same and no solutions have worked so far. Every time I click on sleep mode the computer shuts down to a BSOD

I hooked up my brothers laptop to my computer and things were going fine, then his (brand new) laptop had a BSOD and when I went over to my computer it had one also. So I'm not certain of the cause but perhaps something related to that.

Here are the system specs
Intel e8400
4gb ram
Asus P5Q Pro
Vista Ultimate SP1

I've updated my bios to the latest and have installed the latest chipset/usb/lan drivers from the Asus website.
Nothing is overclocked and bios is default settings

I've attached my minidump as I am unable to figure out the problem. Please let me know what else you need. Thanks guys!

A:Vista BSOD on entering sleep mode

From what I can see in your minidump file, everything is pointing to memory and misread memory. My suggestion would be to run Memtest86+ against your installed ram and see if any problems are reported. If this does not show any problems, then I'm sure that someone else in the forum will have another possible area to look after analyzing your crash dump.Hope this helps,

I have a Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 that when I awake it from sleep mode it generates a BSOD and then reboots.

The BSOD stop code is:
0x0000007E (0xC0000005,0x8A9A8020,0x8B39AEC4,0X8B39ABC0)

Complete BSOD Screenshot:

Hoping someone can provide a cause and suggestion for a solution to this constantly reproducing BSOD.


A:Vista BSOD when awakening from sleep mode

Hi -

Per your post, bugcheck -

0x7e (0xc0000005,0x8a9a8020,0x8b39aec4,0x8b39abc0), listing probable cause as the Microsoft SCSI class system driver classpnp.sys.

0x7e - thread threw an exception; the exception is the 1st parm - 0xc0000005 - a memory access violation.

Assuming not hardware problem, the real cause is an unknown 3rd party driver. More times than not, 0xc..5 are caused by Internet Security suites like NIS, KIS, McAfee, etc... Do you have one of these installed?

If not, run the Vista Driver verifier - it should help put a name to the unknown driver -
START | type cmd.exe | right-click on cmd.exe uptop under programs | Run as Administrator | type verifier & hit enter - the Verifier screen will appear | do the following:


1. Select 2nd option - "Create custom settings (for code developers)"
2. Select 2nd option - "Select individual settings from a full list"
3. Check these boxes -? Special Pool
? Pool Tracking
? Force IRQL checking
? Deadlock Detection
? Miscellaneous Checks4. Select last option - "Select driver names from a list"
5. Click on the Provider heading - sorts list by Provider
6. Check ALL boxes where Microsoft is not the Provider
7. Click on Finish
8. Re-boot

If the Driver Verifier (DV) finds a violation, it will result in a BSOD. After re-boot, you may not be able to log on. If so, boot into SAFEMODE (select Last Known Good Configuration or System Restore). To see the status of Verifier - type verifier - select the last option on the first screen - "Display information about the currently verified drivers..". To turn Driver Verifier off - verifier /reset then re-boot. Keep the verifier running as long as possible, even if the status screen appears clear.

If you get a BSOD, get the verifier-enabled dump file from c:\windows\minidump, zip it up & attach to next post.

Regards. . .

I have a Sony Vaio FW390 with Vista SP2. Everytime after I've used the SD card slot on my laptop and want to enter sleep mode, I get the following error screen:
The laptop then reboots and when Windows starts up again it says that there was an unexpected shut down. It appears that this error only occurs after I have inserted an SD card and then removed it. I haven't had any problems entering sleep mode when I haven't used the SD card slot.

How do I fix this problem?

A:Problem entering sleep mode in Vista

are you using the safely remove icon before pulling the card?
Also the card needs to stay in a while to benefit the machine.
just putting in the card will actually slow the machine.
it takes several minutes to write the and the card now will be filled for use with the have to go through an optimization time,which can be quite some time depending on how you use your machine.

basically you just put the card in,set it for ready boost and walk away a few minutes,then come back and use the pc....leave it in all the time.

Also the error you are showing also happens when ram starts to fail..i guess it is possible to have a bad card do the same thing.

Format the card ..check it for errors and try again.

I've run through the Control Panel/Power Mgt troubleshooter on these forums. All my settings seemed to be correct. Using the CMD prompt and powercfg -devicequery wake_armed yields one device: my logitech g15 keyboard. (Using powercfg -a shows that the only sleep state available is S3. That is correct for my motherboard, an Abit IP 35 pro.)

If forced into sleep, the keyboard will wake it up.

The problem, again, centers on the automatic sleep entrance. Currently set for 1 hour of idle.

It seems to me that the machine never thinks it's idle. Is that where I should start? Finding processes which are running in the background?

I'd appreciate any help.

I have Vista Home Premium on an HP desktop that recently started freezing during sleep mode ~1/3 of the times I would awaken the screen comes on with the cursor and keyboard frozen. A self diagnostic check advised three drivers may be the culprit so I uninstalled the drivers to no avail. Several system restores to no avail. Finally swallowed hard and did a system recovery(like new from the box) and the problem got worse, now freezes at every sleep session requiring rebooting. The drivers are no longer mentioned when I open "performance issues." Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Do you have System Restore point that predates these problems? Make sure to show dates more than 5 days old when checking.

I can run a debugging utility on the dump files if you do this:

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to c:\windows\minidump and copy the last few minidump files to that folder. *this assumes 'c' is your boot drive, if it is not, subsitute accordingly
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.
4 > use the "manage attachments" in the "advanced" reply window to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

This might point us to a non Microsoft driver causing the error, if one exists for it.
You can also try "Clean Boot" troubleshooting >>


First, restart in Safe Mode if necessary -- (tap the f8 key promptly on startup and choose the Safe Mode option from the boot menu) or Normal mode


Run msconfig and select the "Services" tab. Check "Hide Microsoft Services" and then disable the rest. Also uncheck "load startup group" on the general page. << written for Vista, but applies equally well to XP

Now restart and test the issue at hand

If no problems, run msconfig and recheck half the disabled items on the Services tab. Test again. If the problem recurs, UNcheck half the items you just checked to narrow down the culprit.

If the problem didn't occur, check the other half, so all the Services are enabled -- proceed to do this on the startup tab as well.

Get the idea? You want to isolate the problem to a specific startup if possible.

Note: if you already have items unchecked under msconfig > startups and are in &#8220;selective&#8221; startup mode &#8211; you should note what these are before beginning. They will need to be de-selected again.

On Laptops there should be 2 settings; one for AC (adapter being used), the other for Battery.

Hello Lenalee.

Make it sure that the monitor is turning on at first. If not, check the cabling, check the SMPS.

If monitor turns on, but no display, then power cycle the PC. Disconnect all the sources of power, press and hold the power button for say 30 seconds, or till it sounds a beep.

If still it is the same, dismantle the computer and Re-seat. Also Clear COMS.

Laptop freezes between entering sleep mode to being in sleep mode
Relevancy 59.34%

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?

A:Laptop freezes between entering sleep mode to being in sleep mode

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.

Hi, all!

I heard this is a regular Vista glitch, but perhaps there is a patch I am unaware of? I attempted to get around the security center such as trying to add the firewall to my list of startup programs, but that didn't work either. I am using only the windows firewall, and had the Norton crap uninstalled.... I'm still having the issue of it not wanting to stay engaged.

So, every time I wake the lappie back up, it gives me a security bubble telling me that my firewall is esentially down... I shouldn't have to keep turing it on and it's quite annoying. If anyone can show me how to keep it on, that would be fabulous!

Hello, I have a fujitsu laptop on vista home premium with an ati mobility radeon 2600 video card. When I startup vista my screen size is 1440 x 900. After I leave my computer for a little bit and come back (so after it has been in sleep mode) the max resolution for my screen is 1024 x 768. I can't get put it any higher than that size.

A:My Vista screen size is stuck at 1024 x 768 after sleep mode

Sounds like your video drivers don't come out of sleep.

Did you upgrade your video drivers from the Fujitsu website?

Every time I wake my laptop up from sleep mode, my Windows live messenger refuses to start. It is still showing up in task bar but I get no response from right-clicking on it. When I double-click on it, the main messenger window opens but it unresponsive. Once I get the main msngr window up I can use Task Manager to disable the process and then start it again fresh. It's either this or restart the computer completely, which I have done a few times after I got sick of restarting the process. It works great after a restart.
Any clue why this keeps happening? It is a pain to have to restart the process every time I wake the machine up.
I also have Messenger Plus! installed, if that makes a difference.

A:Computer reboots when coming out of sleep, likely only as it's going into sleep.

SSD and sleep sometimes doesn't mix to well. There might be a fix from the vendor. A good read here on your same issue to give you an idea why.
SSD's boot so fast in my opinion it's kind of pointless to have sleep or hibernation. I would be sure to turn off all that garbage...sleep, hibernation, defrag, HD indexing, HD paging, Windows Search service etc. Hibernation alone uses like 10g's of hd space. Windows places a hidden file called hiberfil.sys on C: To turn it off go to cmd.exe run as admin and type powercfg -h off. Hiberfil.sys will vanish from the drive and you will regain hd space. HD paging, again take control of that and turn it off completely or limit it's useage to like 400-2048 depending on how much memory the system has. Hope that helps you out.

A:Computer not booting after putting to sleep

UPDATE: after clearing CMOS the computer will now boot, but there are green squares where the asus logo would be when booting, it gets to a point where asks to enter bios to configure it, but then just cuts out after a few seconds when configuring bios. then it will cut off before it even reaches that point, after leaving the computer off for a few mins it will do the same thing up to configuring bios then cut off then starts and cut offs after about 3 secs until left off for a while

Yesterday I put my laptop to sleep by closing the lid like I normally do and when I woke up it was powered off. The last few days though every time I did that it put it into hibernation(im pretty sure). I made sure that wasn't in the settings. It is set to sleep when I close the lid. I have all windows updates. I appreciate any help. I never saw the BSOD but when I opened my laptop and it was turned off I checked for a minidump and there was one for today.Attachment 55938

A:BSOD when putting laptop to sleep.

IMO this is most likely due to your Virtual Box networking adapter (I had similar problems with my installation of Virtual Box and had to disable it - but I do not use hibernation/sleep). But it is possible that it's due to the wireless networking drivers also.

The memory dump implies (but does not name) the Virtual Box networking components.
On my system I disabled "Virtual Box Host-Only Ethernet Adapter" in the Network Adapters section of Device Manager

Also, you have both BitDefender and MalwareBytes running. You should not have more than one antivirus or one firewall running at the same time (I also noticed that you have Comodo installed) Please uninstall MalwareBytes and Comodo. Should you reinstall MalwareBytes, be sure not to check the MalwareBytes Pro Trial - as that's what causes it to load at startup.

All of the attached DMP files are of the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a) bug check.

This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.

This bug check is issued if paged memory (or invalid memory) is accessed when the IRQL is too high. The error that generates this bug check usually occurs after the installation of a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS.

scmndisp.sys calls into a NdisWaitEvent function. This function puts the caller (scmndisp.sys) into a wait state until the given event is set to the Signaled state or the wait times out. It appears that this was attempted at the improper IRQL, therefore a bugcheck occurred.

1. scmndisp.sys is the Netgear Neutral Wireless Solution driver which is old and out of date (2007). Please uninstall your Netgear software.

2. In your loaded drivers list, dtsoftbus01.sys is listed which is the Daemon Tools driver. Daemon Tools is a very popular cause of BSOD's in 7/8 based systems. Please uninstall Daemon Tools. Alternative imaging programs are: MagicISO, Power ISO, etc.

3. If you're still crashing after the above, please enable Driver Verifier:

Driver Verifier:

What is Driver Verifier?

Driver Verifier is included in Windows 8/8.1, 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 to promote stability and reliability; you can use this tool to troubleshoot driver issues. Windows kernel-mode components can cause system corruption or system failures as a result of an improperly written driver, such as an earlier version of a Windows Driver Model (WDM) driver.

Essentially, if there's a 3rd party driver believed to be at issue, enabling Driver Verifier will help flush out the rogue driver if it detects a violation.

Before enabling Driver Verifier, it is recommended to create a System Restore Point:

Vista - START | type rstrui - create a restore point
Windows 7 - START | type create | select "Create a Restore Point"
Windows 8 - Restore Point - Create in Windows 8

How to enable Driver Verifier:

Start > type "verifier" without the quotes > Select the following options -

1. Select - "Create custom settings (for code developers)"
2. Select - "Select individual settings from a full list"
3. Check the following boxes -
- Special Pool
- Pool Tracking
- Force IRQL Checking
- Deadlock Detection
- Security Checks (Windows 7 & 8)
- DDI compliance checking (Windows 8)
- Miscellaneous Checks
4. Select - "Select driver names from a list"
5. Click on the "Provider" tab. This will sort all of the drivers by the provider.
6. Check EVERY box that is NOT provided by Microsoft / Microsoft Corporation.
7. Click on Finish.
8. Restart.

If I put the computer to 'Sleep', it will go to 'Sleep' but when I come back and press the power button on the computer, it will continuously cycle, the computer powers on, and then powers off, and keeps doing that until I either hold the power button down (or switch it off at the power supply) and then power it back on. However, if I do this, its like a normal boot, no longer resuming from its Sleep.

Please help! Thanks!

The crash dumps seems to blame the LAN adapter driver so the issue seems to be related to network interface.

Please try the below steps one by one.

1. Update Ethernet driver.

Download and install Win8 and Win8.1 Auto Installation Program from Realtek

2. If the issue continues, please uninstall Vmware completely as a test. It's virtual network adapter drivers are known to interfere with physical network adapter drivers.

Let us know your findings in next reply.

ok, guys I have been struggling to fix this for hours now.
MY computer gives a BSOD as soon as I press the sleep button, instead of sleeping it gives a BSOD and restarts. I recently updated to win 8 pro 64 bit from Win 7, and that's when this started, initially it just hanged when trying to sleep, so I updated my Intel rapid start and AHCI drivers, after that it just gives BSOD and restarts whenever I try to put it to sleep.
MY PC has a built in SSD in order to improve startup speeds etc (20GB). and I guess the drivers are messed up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have included a log file from the software recommended in the posting instructions

Every time I try to recover from sleep mode, the monitor light flashes, but nothing appears on the display. I haven't had the patience to wait for it recover (if ever), but have rebooted to Safe Mode, then rebooted again. From Google search results, it's clear that this is a common problem in Vista x64 with a variety of systems running dual monitor displays. (I have a Matrox M9120 PCIe x16 graphics card.) See:

vista 64 sleep mode monitor flashes - Google Search

Is there is a solution, other than what I have done -- change the "Put computer to sleep" option to Never? I wonder whether the same bug occurs in the Windows 7 x64 beta.

Hi My computer is running Windows professional It is a fresh install I have a blu ray drive installed LG BH ls that works fine However when I put my computer to sleep and wake it back up the drive is gone When I go to device manager and try to scan for hardware changes it still doesn t recognize it The only way to solve the problem is to shut down the computer Restarting the computer doesn t help If I restart the computer stays on the motherboards screen for a longer period of time then it normally does about seconds Also it seems that this drive is affecting the computer when I shut it down After having this problem of not being able to find the drive it seems my computer takes longer to shut down I have installed all necessary updates for Windows and the driver is provided by Microsoft driver version - and date is I called LG and they have not been able to find a solution It seems they do not provide Drive after disappears computer Ray to Blu putting sleep have a driver and rely on microsoft s drivers I also updated my BIOS to the newest version I went to my local store and tried another LG drive which Blu Ray Drive disappears after putting computer to sleep was older and not blu ray and it worked fine so it s not a motherboard or power issue My computer is running in IDE mode The reason I state that is because I saw some posts about people switching from IDE to AHCI mode to help similar problems to this However I talked to the technician at my local microcenter and he said this wouldn t be the issue Sounds to me like firmware issue Anyone know a way to solve this

A:Blu Ray Drive disappears after putting computer to sleep

1) Does it recognize it when you insert a disc?

2) Have you tried replacing the drive with a replacement blu-ray drive?

3) One option, clearly, is not to use "sleep". While hibernation and sleep work perfectly for many, there are LOTS of folks who have various problems with one or the other (or both). Believe it or not, these functions were never 100% perfected by Microsoft (hard to do when you are dealing with all of the possible various hw & sw configurations). You can simply set the hd & display to power down after a defined period of inactivity. It should work just fine for you.

Is there a way to do this without putting your computer to sleep?

I'd like to be able to lock my screen and still have my files download while it's locked for example.

I've tried google and all, but all the results are for mac, and nothing is showing for PC...

Thanks guys!

A:lock screen without putting computer to sleep

Hi, if you mean to just lock your computer, I am asumming vista, it is pretty easy.
You will need to have the settings correct so it won't go to sleep automatically.

But if you want o have it so you need the accout password to use the computer again, just go to the Start Menu, and on the bottom right will be 2 buttons and an arrow. One button is to shut the computer down or something like that, the other is to lock the computer. You can als click the arrow and select Lock that way.

I'm not sure if the Lock optio is avaliable if you don't have a password set, so you will need to have that set.

If this is not what you were looking for, please tell me and I will try to correct it.

It's been happening over the past 2 weeks or so...

Please someone help. tired of the multiple of BSODs and concerned that I'm doing some serious damage to my Sony Vaio latop running 64 bit Windows 7.

Link is broken.

If you can get into your computer, you can upload it like this:

As a preliminary idea, try turning off hybrid sleep: Windows Does Not Start After Sleep
This might help, if not go ahead and post that .dmp file.

Hi guys,

I have a Dell inspiron 3542.
My HDD got a bit slow lately so I checked it with CrystalDiskInfo and HDTUBE both said bad sectors.
Anyway a couple of months ago I downloaded "Driver Booster" to get the latest drivers for my hardware.
I remember since then I got problems with my laptop (slowness, high cpu), I suspect some driver is making
Since like 2 weeks ago I turn on the laptop (after being in sleep mode), and each time I get error the windows was just recovered from an unexpected shut down.
I uploaded here in the thread my logs, hope u guys can help out.
I got myself 2-3 times BSOD, just like that.
Much appreciated!

My HP DV7-7135US has begun recently begun crashing while going to sleep. I've had the laptop for several years and it randomly crashed when going to sleep or hibernate. It always hangs after turning off the sound (light goes out) but before turning off the wireless/bluetooth hardware and fingerprint reader. Sent the laptop to HP, their solution was to wipe and reload it. Still had issues. Reloaded my backup image and reinstall/repaired the wireless/bluetooth software, finger print software and drivers. It finally worked ok with occasional crashes for the past year. Last week while traveling it began to crash and get the BSOD. I have tried repeating my previous repairs with no luck. I don't know what is causing the system to crash now.

I greatly appreciate any help provided. Log files attached.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate on my home built computer. Whenever I put my computer to sleep and wake it up with the power key on my keyboard it shuts down and I have to turn off the power supply and wait 5 seconds before I turn it back on. This is irritating. Why does my computer completely shut down and how do I fix this problem? Thanks for any and all help!

A:Solved: waking computer after putting to sleep.

Usually when putting a computer into sleep mode pressing any key on the keyboard will wake the computer. I would recommend pressing the space bar instead of the power button in order to avoid conflicts.
