XPS 15 (9550) Powers itself on after shut down, sleep or hibernate. BIOS code issue or hardware fault?

Q: XPS 15 (9550) Powers itself on after shut down, sleep or hibernate. BIOS code issue or hardware fault?

Hi I have a brand new XPS machine which hardware code down, shut itself BIOS or sleep XPS after Powers (9550) hibernate. issue on 15 or fault? I suppose may have a factory defect but I d like to try asking here and see if others have similar experiences before sending it to repair TL DR Issuing a shut down hibernate or start command makes the laptop go down Light from the power button goes away seconds later the power comes back on and the system starts up On delivery the laptop had Win Pro on it I want to have a clean install without the bloatware which is often shipped with new computers so I reinstalled it on the very first day with a USB stick prepared with Windows Pro install media on it Once installed I added the WLAN driver and let the machine get all other drivers via Windows update Once done I shut down the machine and put it in XPS 15 (9550) Powers itself on after shut down, sleep or hibernate. BIOS code issue or hardware fault? my bag So far so good I thought nbsp When i took it of of my bag I instantly noticed that it was hot and that the screen was already at the Windows logon as soon as I flipped up the screen Logged on and tried to shut it down just to realize that the machine comes back on seconds after completed shut down I tried this several times to see if it was repeatable and yes it is Behavior is same every time It s the same regardless of choosing shut down hibernate or sleep Always seconds after the light on power button goes out power comes back on BIOS wise or release behaves equal I have tried resetting the BIOS to factory defaults and BIOS defaults as XPS 15 (9550) Powers itself on after shut down, sleep or hibernate. BIOS code issue or hardware fault? well Operating system wise I ve tried reinstalling the machine with both the Microsoft install image The Microsoft tool that prepares a USB drive as Win installation media and the image supplied by Dell via the support pages No difference I ve tried to stay on drivers supplied by Windows update as well as manually installing everything from Dell support site No difference Findings from google refer to quot Fast boot quot setting in windows but I did not get any improvement from either settings of this I even went as far as tried to run Ubuntu on the laptop to see if the behavior is OS agnostic and yes it seems Shut down from the menu of the Ubuntu desktop gives the same result seconds after power led goes out the power returns Even when in the BIOS settings menu I can do a short press of the power button to request a shut down and reach the same result seconds after power led coming off system is by itself restarting The only way to shut down this computer is to do a long press on the power button If I do that the machine shuts down and stays off Last thing to share here is that inside the BIOS interface there is a power state log In there I can see that the system has powered off at a certain timestamp and that the associated reason is something like quot ACPI Power off quot or similar don t have the machine here at hand right now quot Immediately after that there is a power on event but the reason is listed as quot Not applicable quot I interpret this that there is something actually making a signal to the system to start up rather than a hardware fault Possibly a BIOS bug My patience is rather much consumed with this as I do not see any more things to try I think next stop is the workshop for this machine but I cannot be without it for the next week so I ll need to keep it with me some time still

Preferred Solution: XPS 15 (9550) Powers itself on after shut down, sleep or hibernate. BIOS code issue or hardware fault?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Should I put my laptop to sleep, hibernate it or shut it down when I'm not using it? I changed the settings so my laptop goes into hibernation mode when I close the lid or press the power button. I'm curious what you all think.

A:Sleep, hibernate or shut down?

It depends entirely on how you use your computer/laptop and how long its going to be unused in my opinion ,I shutdown when I go to work ,I use sleep when I'm at home and used it every now and then ,shut it down most nights ,I never use hibernate .

Please Someone Expain More Info For This 3 Mode ?

Sleep Mode It's Same Shut down But Save Time For Startup Again But Use More Energy ?

I'm Desktop PC

A:Shut down / Sleep / Hibernate ???

Sleep mode means your user session is kept stored in the memory (RAM) while everything else (other than LED lights) is turned off. If you unplug your PC while in sleep mode, you lose all unsaved work since RAM is not able to store data without electricity unlike Hard drives.

Hibernate means the user session that is stored in the memory is stored in a file called hiberfil.sys and then Windows completely turns off all the devices and the computer itself. You can uplug your PC safely by using this mode. When you turn on your PC, you basically get to your previous user session.

Shutdown is self-explanatory.

Hello,
I had upgraded by laptop computer from windows vista to windows 7 about 3.5 months ago. My computer has been working fine until about 2-3 days ago when it stopped being able to hibernate, sleep or shut down. Whenever I try to sleep or hibernate my computer the screen goes black but the computer is still on. When I try to shutdown my computer it forever says on the "logging off" screen. I'm not very tech savvy so I have no idea what to do. Programs I try to install now won't work either. They just will not open. I tried to do a system restore but it won't let me do that either, saying that there's an error. I've tried uninstalling programs that I had installed in the past week as well as used CC cleaner to no avail. Someone please help! I will need step by step instructions as I am not that computer savvy. Thanks!

A:Machine Won't Hibernate, Sleep or Shut down

You can try to restore via Safe Boot.
Go into Start, bottom left of screen. type msconfig. Click that, msconfig.exe.

When that opens, go to the Boot tab. Go to boot options, and select Safe Boot\minimal.

Once your system reboots, then try your system restore. See if that gets rid of error.

I've been experiencing this problem for about a week now. It started seemingly randomly, as I haven't made any significant changes to my computer. If I try to hibernate or shut down my computer it hangs up on either "Logging off" or "Shutting down" and stays there. I've let it run for as long as an hour, but ultimately I have to crash my computer every time I need to turn it off.

I don't know what to do here, so I would really appreciate some help

Do you have a restore point that is longer than a week ago ?
If yes, do a system restore and pick that date as your restore point.

After the last Windows 10 update (4/12/16) my system would no longer go to sleep. I applied the latest BIOS update (1.2.0) and now it is sleeping again so you might want to consider installing this BIOS update. It also supposedly fixes a number of other issues people have been having.

Thank you for posting. Since updating the BIOS to 1.2.0 has the system been running alright, are you still able to place it in sleep?

About a month ago I had my friendly Dell rep dispatch a tech to replace my Bluetooth Vista hibernate, X32 Won't lid shut closed is when Dell down sleep, module and CD drive Afterwhich Bluetooth still wouldn't work and Dell Vista X32 Won't hibernate, sleep, shut down when lid is closed I'm positivie that it's a software issue I called them back about that issue and the one I'm asking about below and according to Dell my only option is to reinstall windows He didn't grasp the fact that I couldn't back up my files Since the repair my laptop won't go into sleep hibernate or shut down when I close the lid I also started getting a 'last backup failed' error and when I try and backup or create a restore point I get a the 'insuffecient memory for VSS Shadow copy' message with error x F It will shutdown when I use the shutdown in the windows orb as well as it goes into some form of sleep hibernation when I push the power button The reason I say that is when I open it up and push the power button again I get a 'resuming windows' message and screen Also I don't think it's a mechanical issue Reason being when I close the lid and open it back up my mouse will freeze and act drunk for - seconds To me that says that for some reason the program that commands sleep hibernation is not firing off or firing off to completion I've tried several tutorials suggestions from this website and others regarding adjusting power settings disabling wake from sleep in device manager doing repairs from the windows disk etc I'd appreciate any and all ideas- I don't want to reload Vista I'm sure that there's something that I missed or Dell missed or maybe even I did something wrong THANKS in advance

Hello,
I'm having an issue with my Dell XPS 15 laptop (i7, 4K Touch, 512GB SSD, Windows 10).
Issue:
- the laptop instantly wakes up after I put it to sleep (by pressing the power button or closing the lid);
- this happened after the laptop failed to hibernate from sleep and now it's happening every time I try to put it to sleep and it just wakes up instantly after the sleep starts;
- there are no waking devices or scheduled tasks, nor is the wireless card waking it;
- the issue seemed fixed after I updated the BIOS with the November firmware update (01.00.07), but it started again after another failed attempt to hibernate from sleep.

Thank you in advance for your help.

A:Dell XPS 15 (9550) sleep issue

Hello,
Even with the latest BIOS update 01.01.19 (05 Feb 2016), I still have this issue.
I was able to further explain the issue on this thread: answers.microsoft.com/.../ce44911e-c472-4773-8e7f-d3d58518aabc
I will transcribe it.
Some notes:

the expected behavior is: put laptop to sleep by pressing the power button > wait 1 minute (I configured it that way) > the laptop wakes to hibernate > the laptop hibernates > the laptop stays in hibernation until I boot it up again
the bug is: put laptop to sleep by pressing the power button > wait 1 minute > the laptop wakes to hibernate > the laptop hibernates > the laptop instantly wakes up afterwards
when the bug happens, the laptop is in a state where it wakes up instantly after every sleep, hibernate, and shutdown (even after restarting it)
to "fix" this state I have to prevent windows from booting up when the computer wakes. I usually shutdown the laptop, wait for it to wake automatically and hit the power button again, making it shutdown for real.

Steps to trigger the bug (default 'balanced' power plan with 1 minute to hibernate from sleep):

the laptop is plugged to the charger, with only a usb mouse connected
put laptop to sleep by pressing the power button
while asleep, unplug the power changer and disconnect the mouse
at the scheduled time (after 1 minute) the laptop wakes up to hibernate, and a sound is played (due to the mouse being disconnected)
the laptop starts to hibernate
the laptop instantly wakes up and is now in the faulty wake up state

I think step 3 is the real issue. I also did other tests that did not trigger the bug on step 3:

not unplugging the laptop from the charger, nor disconnecting the mouse — the bug does not occur
unplug the laptop from charger, but keep mouse connected — sometimes the bug occurs, sometimes it doesn't
keep the laptop plugged to the charger, but disconnect the mouse — the bug does not occur and a sound is not played in step 4.
Again, thank you in advance for your help.

Best regards,
João Martins Costa

So, I recently bought a Dell XPS 15 9550 i7 Skylake model, and the problem that bothers me is with the sleep mode. It's the 3rd day when i watch a movie on battery, close the lid with 70% of battery and wake up after 7-8 hours with 5-10 % of battery remaining. IT IS ABSURD !!! I paid a lot of money for this product, and I think this can be solved with a BIOS update. (i have .19 version of BIOS).
Please give me an answer of what I can do, and does anyone else have this problem??

A:Dell XPS 15 (9550) SLEEP Issue

This is a known Windows 10 issue. You can use the Power > Shutdown buttons and you think that it is totally shutdown, but it is not. I did that with my laptop which I did not have plugged in and a while later when I brought it back up, I discovered that the battery had almost run down. What you can do is shut off "Fast Startup". That should solve the problem. The XPS 15 will still come up fast enough without it.

I have done a fresh installation of windows 10Prox64 on this laptop which originally came pre-loaded with windows7 Prox64. I installed the drivers on the disk included. now everytime the laptop hibernates or sleeps i can not wake it up - the screen flashes several times then goes white. Nothing comes up on the screen not even the mouse pointer. i can only proceed by doing a forced power off and when i power it up works normally as long as it does not sleep. i have installed all driver/windows updates with the same result. Is there anything else i can try other than return it to HP?

Just got a new desktop Hibernate/Sleep Issue 8.1 Windows with Windows installed Was originally having some issues getting the computer to go into hibernate and read online to try disabling some of the homegroup settings since I'm not even connected to a homegroup Now Hibernate/Sleep Issue Windows 8.1 no matter what I do the computer hibernates between - minutes after going to sleep When I say sleep I mean I can move the mouse to wake the computer up and at least one of the fans is still running About two minutes later if I leave the computer asleep the fan will shut off I can hear it power down and I have to hit the power button to turn the computer back on which takes me back to the screen I left it on the same as sleep I have tried going into advanced power options and completely disabling hibernate changed the hibernate time to much longer turned off hybrid sleep changed how long it takes the computer to sleep restored to default power settings - nothing seems to work it always hibernates - minutes later I do want the computer to hibernate eventually but not minutes after going to sleep I would like it to do something like sleep after minutes and hibernate minutes after that I have also noticed if I manually go up to power right click and choose Sleep it shuts all the fans off and requires the power button to be pressed to turn on like it's quot hibernating quot Does anyone have any ideas This is extremely frustrating

i have an S440 with Windows 10 Pro which doesnt go to hibernate if it is used longer than a few hours by closing the lid or similar. It randomly goes if it is used under an hour or so. The red button on the lid is flashing and laptop gets very hot if I put it into a bag. Or the battery goes off it stays like that long time.  I need to open the lid back and hold the power button long time to put it hibernation which is extremely annoying.  I did hundreds of options from Fingerprint Software removal to BIOS Update, from drivers update to disabling swictable graphics driver, installating Power Manager for overriding settings and many other several suggestions but nothings works.  I would extremely appreciate if someone could help this neverending problem.

I also have this issue. The machine will hang after being commanded to sleep, the lights flash momentarily, and then will turn back on into a sort of limbo state where the fan runs at full speed and the lights are on, but nothing responds. This mode requires pressing and holding the power button to shut the machine off and restart. Also, it should be noted that this machine is only 4 hours old and has no additional software installed yet, nor does it have any issues that would be related to age

I've been all over the internet trying to figure this problem out, but when I try to put my computer to asleep, it does as I described in the subject line. It's a new PC, though it was custom built.

Anyway, I've tried a dozen tips and tricks that haven't worked, and I'm sorry I can't remember what they all were. I've tried adjusting the Power settings, and tried changing options somewhere that said "Allow computer to sleep". With all the changes I've made, it should sleep.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:PC won't sleep (Everything powers off except the PC itself)

The top cause is normally the Display driver so update it first. Then check Power Management tabs on Display and LAN drivers to see that they won't wake the computer.

Next run this Sleep query command to see what is causing the failure.

Others steps here: Sleep Mode Problems - Vista Forums

If all else fails this will determine the cause with certainty: Gathering a Startup, Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernate, or Reboot Trace - Windows 7 Forums

The situation began after Dell Support Tech installed a New Motherboard.

The PC will not power down even if you hold in on the Power Button.

Hello

My computer has been randomly freezing over the last month. I would come in the morning and the screens wouldn't wake up from shut down mode (those are my power settings) but it got really bad last week when it happened about 5 times in an hour while I was using skype and while I was trying to move files around. Usually what happens is the whole computer just locks up. Today, I actually got a BSOD with the 116 error code. When I rebooted, it something about a BIOS error and had to rebuild it or something. I didn't write it down but once it was done, I rebooted and got back into windows.

I'm at wits end at this point. The fact it just seems to be escalating in frequency worries me. I haven't added any new hardware in years.

Thanks for much for the help!

Counterfeit installations such as yours can contain heavily modified code that can cause the installation to behave in unexpected ways. Analysing BSODs and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is completely unreliable, and for this reason most analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine copy of Windows 7. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing and make subsequent diagnosis of BSODs far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows 7 installation and are still experiencing BSODs, upload your new logs we will be happy to help you solve them.

I have the 1TB NVMe SSD (Samsung PM951) and can't get hardware Bitlocker encryption working. Can someone confirm whether the PM951 supports eDrive/TCG Opal? If not, will a firmware update enable support in the future?
I have the TPM and UEFI enabled, but when I try to set up Bitlocker, I do not get the hardware encryption option. Seems like the PM951 should support this like Samsung's retail drives. I can't even use the Samsung disk utilities to investigate because those are only for retail drives.

Depending on which cooling fan you have, sometimes it takes a little tweaking to get it mounted on perfectly straight, make sure all the screws are tightened to the same tightness and not tightened too tight(as this can somethimes bend the board causing poor contact). I often forget to plug in the atx 12v connector(the four pin one usually located near the cpu), so you might want to check on that too. Other than that I really don't know what to tell you besides check over everything carefully. Sorry to hear the bad news, hope i can help.

After returning from sleep, the external monitor does not seem to 'wake up'.
In order for it to receive input I need to unplug the HDMI cable and plug it in again.
I have updated all latest drivers, except the BIOS which is on A06 since I do not want to upgrade it (yet) since the higher versions currently cause the screen's brightness to flicker. Unless this BIOS is known to address these issues (not listed in the details) I do not see a reason to upgrade it (again).

I also have an type-c to VGA adapter that does not have this problem so its not a general external monitor issue its only with the HDMI port.

After a cold boot, I'm able to copy gigabytes of files from a 16GB SD card in the internal card reader, even with many other programs running. But when I put the computer to sleep mode and then wake it up, I'm only able to copy a file or two at a time before I get a "There is not enough memory to complete this operation" error, followed by an automatic dismount and remount of the SD card. The only way to get it working again is a restart. The SD card works fine, as I don't have this issue when using an external SD card reader. There is plenty of memory free (6GB of 16GB). I've reinstalled the card reader driver from Dell.
Any ideas on what to try? Seems like a BIOS or driver issue to me.

Hi Dantees, 
Good day. 
When did the issue start? Is that a SanDisk card? 
Have you tried different make of cards just in case. 
Simultaneously please try this step and  let us know how it goes. 
I right-clicked on the SD card device in device manager under Disk Drives, click properties, then go to the policies tab and then select "best performance". 
Await your response.

I know I'm new here so thanks for taking the chance to read this

I put my laptop in sleep mode before leaving to starbucks.
I open my laptop and press the power button
The internal fans start turning as well as the disc drive, but the screen remains blank.

I have heard that Windows 7 has multiple issues with the sleep mode, and I'm pretty sure laptop is now stuck in hybrid sleep??

Also, I noticed that there is a hotfix for this provided by microsoft, but I would have no way to use this since my computer cannot get stuck out of this. After Researching this, I heard some people taking out the battery and holding the power button down for 30 seconds, then running it off of a/c power. This too has failed me

Any help would be great,
And Thanks again for reading this post.

Is this a recurring problem, or did it happen once and you still power on the screen?

A:Sleep mode powers off after long time.

Hello Cranford, and welcome to Vista Forums.

It sounds like it is working properly. From what you described, your computer is set for "Hybrid" mode and goes to "Sleep", then after a some time, it then enters "Hibernation" and the power light stops blinking. This is why you get the "Resuming Windows" when you wake up your computer from hibernation. The amount of time it takes will depend on what you have your "Hibernate after" time set for in the while on battery and while plugged in Power Plan Options.

A:Hardware Failure & Driver Errors - ATI Radeon 9550?

Hi, this is a Hard drive problem, the HDD has been corrupted and the system is unable read the Filesystem and Partition Table data on the hdd correctly. A repair install will not always work. Best solution is to Delete the Partition/s on the HDD, recreate partion/s and full format each partition. Make sure you set the partition you intend to use as your SYSTEM DRIVE as active after you recreate it.

You should save your Data (only your doccuments and media files) Not the doccuments and Settings, windows, or program files directories. because you will probably find that windows is also corrupted and will not repair but will BSOD when initializing system drivers. Use a HDD regeneration utility to make sure that any bad sectors are repaired or marked as bad so that windows does not attempt to use the bad sectors.

this is usually caused by virus atack, system crash, incorrect shutdowns causing improper HDD dismounts, if have partition magic or similar utility you will probably see that the partition is marked as bad.

Can anyone give an answer to something that has bothered me for ages?
Does it harm a computer turning it off after you are through, and then back on again later, rather than leave it running?
Does it do less harm to put it in Hibernate mode than to close it down completely?
Is it best to have the system close down the monitor and hard drive after a short period of non-activity and leave the cpu switched on?
Which of these is best for minimising wear and tear on the computer... or is there a fourth option?
 

A:Shut Down or Hibernate?

Lol that debate comes up pretty frequently.. can probably find a few old threads if you run a search.
in my opinion its pretty much 6 of one half dozen of another. it was a major issue back when screen burn in was common and before harddrives spun down, etc. now its more of a personal preference i think.

I turn mine off at night simply because i dont want to listen to the fans. i leave it on during the day because i dont want to wait for it to boot.

I personally don't like hibernate because it uses too much disk space (often several hundred MB)

A:XPS 9550 BIOS A06 still recommended

Whathecode
For anyone having issues with BIOS updates (up to A12 now), I still recommend you to use BIOS A06, which does at least not have the following two issues:

Heavy brightness flickering on any brightness level. (Introduced in A10.)
Battery does not charge above 60% (Not fully tested, but mine is at 73% now and not charging, thus confirming this report. P.s. this is already a battery replacement) (This was introduced in A12.)

I upgraded to the latest BIOS (A12) in conjunction with the latest Intel HD Graphics drivers just released today (A07), in conjunction with a fresh motherboard and screen replacement. These are most definitely not hardware issues!
While debugging the issue for which I got the hardware replacements (random touch screen input), I also found out that brightness flickering on A12 (did not check A10) primarily occurs while charging. Likewise, it seems that my random touch screen input only occurs while charging. Does anyone else encounter this?
I recommend Dell to rather than wasting resources on product support, hardware replacements, and time of customers, to simply address the real issue here. Contact whoever is in charge of these firmware releases. They are doing a horrendous job implementing them, if not at the very least, properly testing them.
Please let me know once a BIOS version has been released addressing both these issues explicitly. I will no longer upgrade until this happens.

I also have two External Hard Drive attached - one is powered via the USB - 500GB and the other is plugged in 1TB.

A:My computer will not shut down or go into hibernate

First thing is to remove any electrical current within the machine and then try to shutdown the machine. To do this please remove your laptop battery from the machine and remove any chargers so that there is no power in the machine and then press the power button. This should clear any stored current. After that please boot up the machine normally and test if shut down works?

If not could you please boot into Safe mode and see if shutting down works from then. If so then there is an application that is preventing Windows from shutting down or hibernating

To boot into safe mode follow this tutorial - Safe Mode

Many Thanks,

You could try looking at the advanced power settings. Click on the battery icon on the task bar & select more power options, then select Change plan settings next to the currently active power plan.

I'm not a fan of either Hibernation or Sleep. My recommendations:

For the desktop, just set the display and hd to power down after a defined period of inactivity.

As for the laptop, t just power it down when you're not using it? Booting it before classes start can't be that much of a problem.

As I read the Questions on the MS community it looks like I'm not alone with this problem. does any one have a possible solution ?

A:Can't use sleep or hibernate

Hi hootcow,

There are many possible causes for this issue. Please try the following troubleshooting steps to see if they work:
1. Update BIOS:
Note: Battery should have 10% or greater charge; Adapter should be connected; No external devices should be connected; All other programs should be closed and documents saved
- Click Driver Details | Dell United States to download the BIOS file and install it as per the on-screen instructions
- Laptop will restart itself (may produce some beeps); recheck results

2. If the issue persists, try installing 'Windows Updates': Ensure that the 'Logitech Mouse' is working with the laptop while you perform the update
- Click 'Start icon' > Type 'Windows Update' in 'Search programs and files' in the text box > Tap Enter and follow the on-screen instructions to install all updates > Restart the laptop and check results

3. If the issue still persists, you may also try updating the 'video drivers'; Dell XPS L702x laptop offers 'NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M and GT 555M' as discrete video options:
- Click Driver Details | Dell United States to update the 'Intel HD Graphics 3000 driver'
- Restart laptop after updating
- Click Driver Details | Dell United States to update the 'Discrete Video card driver'
- Restart and check again

Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions. I would be glad to assist.

Win XP will not Standby or Hibernate. Monitor also. I have adjusted the Power Properties many times. Is there a certain order that the Min's must be set to.

A:Why no Sleep or Hibernate

There's no special order for setting Min's.Did you exit the settings screen then go back later to see if the settings are retained?Is this a new XP install because apparently this can happen when you haven't installed your chipset drivers?Also go to Device Manager and see if any errors are showing, usually yellow exclamation marks.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

Hello.
I changed my Power option to "Power saver" and set my system going to Hibernate after 60 minutes but another option with the name "put the computer to sleep" is enable and set to "45" minutes and my computer never going to hibernate.
Is it my problem? Must I set "sleep" to "never" ?

Tnx.

Hello , I check forums but I didn't find solution for me so I'm gonna ask.
I have windows 7 installed on laptop which has good performance.

I want to put him to sleep or hibernate so he can cool himself a bit , but without closing my network applications such as one game and one sharing program.

I tried any way but I'm connected to network with usb wireless adapter to my modem , or I can connect with usb cable to him.

Any way I try my connection goes off.
If there is any possible way of saving some power or cooling him off a little while using some network applications I would be happy to know about it.

Thanks.

I have herd arguements both ways, one issue I herd was that in "sleep" mode the system keeps running and in a enclosed bag (laptop bag or backpack) can overheat fast, also I have herd hibetrnate is borked up.

Well, I have hibernated and also used sleep, but whats the reccomended way.

If its hibernate, how can I just remove the sleep option from the shutdown options, and if its sleep how can I remove the hibernate options ?

Thankyas

A:Sleep or Hibernate ?

Just Like Coke vs Pepsi, it really boils down your own personal preference. Both drawbacks you list can be true. The main difference though is that sleep does not totally power down your system. Which is why a laptop in a bag will get hot. It still draws power to the memory, which is why it restarts so quickly. However if the power is interrupted for any reason, battery dead, unplugged, brown/blackout, you lose what was running at the time. Hibernate saves everything to the hard disk and totally powers down the entire system. Power can og out or battery removed and it will still return to the last state it was in when it hibernated albeit in a slightly longer amount of time than the Sleep function. Catch is the file what it uses to store the hibernation data, (hiberfil.sys) is very large (typically equal to the amount of RAM you have installed) and can become corrupted which can cause various problems.

Either way the easiest way to shutdown in whatever manner you decide is to assign the Start menu Power button to do either option under Control Panel/Power Options/Advanced options. Also if your keyboard has a sleep button (It typically looks like a crescent moon) then that sometimes can be programed to do the same thing as well.

A:Sleep or Hibernate !!

To turn on the hibernate option, make sure you are logged on as administrator.Right click in an empty space on your desktop and select properties.Click the Screen Saver tab.Click the Power button (in the right part, above the Cancel button).Click the Hibernate tab and check Enable hibernation.Click Apply and then OK, the power option window will close.Click OK, the display options window will close.Now you should be able to use hibernation.

A:Hibernate and Sleep

Hello Alanbo, and welcome to Eight Forums.

The timestamp may still show the same due to fast startup being enabled unless you actually restart the computer. Fast startup doesn't save the same way to the hiberfil.sys as hibernate does.

As a test, you might turn off fast startup to see how it works for you afterwards.

Hope this helps for now,

This is my first post and attaching files for most recent BSOD. I installed the latest BIOS for this system (5 month old XPS 955). This machine has had the SSD replaced TWICE, the System Board replaced once, TWO trips back to TX for repair. Untold hours working with Dell Tech Support. All of this to no avail. The BSOD come at about 2 a day AT LEAST. Most recent was about 8 hours after the latest BIOS was installed.

Any help would be appreciated. Any suggestions on how to get Dell to replace this machine (it has been unusable for about 4 of the 5 months I have had it).

Simple answer is the latest bios is not for your configuration. Bios updates are for specific problems and specific configurations of the same model. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Ok so when I had XP I would always use hibernate and only about once a week I would actually reboot the computer completely. Now that I have Windows 7 I would like to do the same. But now when I click hibernate the screen goes black and everything shuts off but the computer acts like its in standby. The lights are still on and computer is running. Once this happens I cannot get back into windows or reboot without holding down the power button to force a reset. Each time that I have done with Windows 7 boots an error saying the computer was not shutdown correctly. Anyone know why it won't completely power off when I click hibernate. I have tried it about 5 separate times and it has not worked once. Thanks. Jon.

A:Extremely long shut down & hibernate

I seem to recall those issues being caused by processes that won't stop until some timeout limit is met. Sometimes an external device or network connection is working.

You can test the easy stuff by disconecting any external devices, then any network connections and shut down.

Otherwise there is the mind-numbing task of going into task manager and turning off individual processes and shutting down to test until you find the offending process (you can do them 3 or 5 at a time to speed thing up).

Once you know what process is causing the delay you can deduce what device or program is the cause and work from there.

Is this possible? I have my hard drive on my laptop truecrypted. So when I wake it up from hibernate I have to enter my password at the bootmanager, and then a windows password when I log in, too much work. Especially when the bootmanager password is like 30 characters and the windows one is like 20.


So is there a way to only ask for a password from sleep but not from hibernate?

A:Ask for password from sleep but not hibernate

Any word on this? I have feeling it is impossible, but hoping there might be a registry dive that will do the trick.

I typically only put my laptop to sleep by closing the lid, and when asleep I always have it with me. So, password on wake-from-sleep is silly.

But, when I hibernate it, I do not always have it with me, so I need to have it prompt for a password on wake.

One would think that MS would have realized this is a common requirement!

Please go to Device Manager and uninstall:
- the multiple printers that are disabled
- the Hamachi device that doesn't have device drivers loaded

There are no memory dump files in the attached zip archives. Please do the following:

Quote:




Upload Dump Files:
Please go to C:\Windows\Minidump and zip up the contents of the folder. Then upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
Left click on the first minidump file.
Hold down the "Shift" key and left click on the last minidump file.
Right click on the blue highlighted area and select "Send to"
Select "Compressed (zipped) folder" and note where the folder is saved.
Upload that .zip file with your next post.

If you have issues with "Access Denied" errors, try copying the files to your desktop and zipping them up from there. If it still won't let you zip them up, post back for further advice.

If you don't have anything in that folder, please check in C:\Windows for a file named MEMORY.DMP. If you find it, zip it up and upload it to a free file hosting service . I recommend Windows Live SkyDrive - http://skydrive.live.com or another free, file-hosting service. Then post the link to it in your topic so that we can download it.

Then, follow the directions here to set your system for Minidumps (much smaller than the MEMORY.DMP file): http://www.carrona.org/setmini.html




The dump files mentioned in MSINFO32 are either due to your Hamachi device, or your wireless device. Please fix the Hamachi device as indicated above. Then,
- download a fresh copy of the wireless drivers for your system
- uninstall the current wireless drivers
- install the freshly downloaded drivers and monitor for further BSOD's.

Hi Glebe and Welcome.

The five latest dump files all give a stop error 0x44. They also blame various system files which is highly unlkely.

STOP 0x00000044: MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS
Usual causes: Device driver(s). This indicates that a driver has tried to requested an IRP be completed that is already complete.

As a rule of thumb, the date for third party drivers to be compatible with Windows 7 is 13 July 2009. Windows 7 is a new operating system. It bears no relation to XP.
Hardware and software designed for XP will not run on Windows 7 unless the Mfr's have updated them to be compatible. Many Mfr's choose not to spend time and money writing new drivers which you download for free. They live better by selling new software and hardware.
Check all your software and hardware that you used on XP. Upgrade the software and hardware to a date preferably post 13 July 2009. If you can't update then you should uninstall and replace it.

Hi,

Since a while, I'm unable to sleep my computer. Instead of sleeping, the screen goes black with the computer apparently still working (I can lock and unlock my computer 'blindly', and hear the lock/unlock sounds). After a while though, the system will then crash with a BSOD: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

Attached is the zip file with the dumps etc,

Note to admins:this tool does not actually put the zip file on the desktop (which is D:\Desktop in my case) but simply in C:\Users\[username]\Desktop. Could potentially be confusing...

I reinstalled vista x64 and since then am having this problem...

Whenever i click sleep my computer goes into hibernate... I ve tried setting standby state as s3 in bios and also i ve tried disabling hibernate by running 'powercfg -h off' in command prompt...

I ve also installed latest motherboard and video card (nvidia geforce 8600gt) drivers but no effect...

Any help appreciated
