Solved: constant restarts reqired after sleep mode

Q: Solved: constant restarts reqired after sleep mode

Hello this is my first post and I'll try to describe the issue best I can

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.3GHz
Memory: CORSAIR VENGANCE 2X 2gig 1600mhz ddr3 2 X 4gig 1600mhz ddr3 1.50v = 12gig of Ram
Video Card: Powercolor Radeon HD6950
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Motherboard: Asus P8P67 R3 Socket 1155 USB 3.0 Bluetooth 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
Power : Antec TruePower New 650W Modular PSU
The Issue started to happen after adding more Ram (extra 8 gig of ram on top of 4) and Replacing Fried GPU (ASUS HD 6850 )
all at the same Time)
so what happens? when I turn on the PC it switches off after 3 seconds (blank screen) I repeat the process 1-3 times (for some reason its random. Rarely it switches on straight away)
like 1 in 10 I'll get message that that over clocking failed on top of that (everything is on stock settings) mostly after sleep mode

after all of that to proceeds to boot and everything works fine. it does not stop me in normally using the machine but its definitely annoying and I would like to fix it since I'm not planing on reinstalling system from scratch anytime soon

Preferred Solution: Solved: constant restarts reqired after 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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Whenever I put the screen down for the night, or after classes, when I open it up again, it informs me of an automatic restart due to a problem it has encountered with files in the Minidump folder and a Local sysdata.xml file. I have attached the file.

A:BSOD after sleep mode. Constant restarts after hibernate.

Please check to ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates. It may take several trips to get them all.

Please uninstall the MotionInJoy program and physically remove the controller from your system (it's blamed in 2 of the memory dumps).
The xusb21.sys driver that dates from 2009 is known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems. Unfortunately, there is no update available for this driver - so the only "solution" is to get another later-model controller (with the xusb22.sys driver).

Please uninstall the Paragon Software Group Apple Partition Map Driver as it is blamed in 2 of the memory dumps.

If all of this doesn't stop the BSOD's, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

Greetings all you Harmonica players!!! Hope you're all fined tuned for the Christmas season!!!

I've Windows Vista Home Premium that when set to sleep mode, works. Well, it works several times and then it doesn't.

I've got it set at High Performance - put computer to sleep = 25 minutes. The same setting is found in the Advanced settings - in Multimedia settings, I've presently got it set at "allow the computer to enter away mode" - I've tried the "prevent idling to sleep" and the "Allow the computer to sleep" --- all with the same results, that being, it will work several times and then it refuses to work after that.

Any idea as to what I might do to keep this thing going to sleep when it is supposed to?

A:Sleep mode does not remain constant


I just read this thread and some others. some people say it can be done others say it can't.

good luck

Occasionally during Sleep Mode, the laptop restarts for unknown reasons. But I just noticed that it has restarted when I log in.I'm not sure whether this is caused by background updates of Windows 10, because I don't see a screen with updating or anything. AFAIK, the random restarts happened when the laptop ran on battery mode, but maybe that happens by accident.I already configured in Energy Manager that the hard disk never gets turned off, but that apparently doesn't work. What suggestions do you have to solve this random restart issue, without disabling sleep mode after X minutes?

A:Yoga 910 sometimes restarts during sleep mode

Windows will not update while in sleep mode, since your system is effectively turned off, so that is not the issue. Normally when you system is in sleep mode for a while, it eventually goes into hibernation (writes the data from memory to the hard drive) and shuts off.   This is to preserve the battery, and to prevent data loss should the battery die. The data is written to a hidden file on the root of the C:\ drive called hiberfil.sys, which is usually pretty large, about 6GB or so, and sometimes that file gets corrupted, and cannot be read when you try to resume, and thus the laptop reboot since it has no saved state from which to resume.     To fix that problem, you need to disable hibernation, and then re-enable it by following the steps below.. Disable/re-enable hibernationRight Click on Start and select Command Prompt (Admin)In the Command Prompt (Admin) window, type:  powercfg.exe /h offIt will take a minute or so for the command prompt to return as it deletes the existing hiberfil.sys fileOnce the prompt returns, type: powercfg.exe /h onThe prompt should almost immediately return, and the new hiberfil.sys file has been created.Close the Command Prompt (Admin) window Hope that helps. Cheers,

I have a Surface Pro 3 running W8.1 with all updates installed. When I wake the computer from sleep mode, all my open programs are closed and the computer has restarted. In looking at system event logs it indicates that a Kernel-Power issue occurred and the system has restarted. I know of two others in my office that have similar problems. Thanks for you help.

A:SP3 Restarts randomly when in sleep mode.

What do you have in common with the other 2 systems? I'd especially look at wifi enabled programs.

Looks to me like a networking problem, most likely with something related to the wifi.
Please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings
I suspect that something is interfering with the wifi, but it hasn't left any traces in the memory dumps.

Be sure that you have ALL available Windows Updates for this system.

Sometimes when it's time for the computer to shut down and sleep on the auto timer it clicks off and resets instead of sleeping.

Only started happening the past week or so.

My computer has been little weird lately. When I'm doing almost nothing, and computer is basically under 0% stress ( reading FB for example ) it's okay, but soon as I start some program, and the computer goes under stress ( fans start to go faster ) it kind of 'freezes' for sec, then continues.

This hasn't really bothered me so much until today.

I Was playing League of Legends and the game ( match ) was loading. My fans were running very lightly, even thought it was loading ( I have putted the fan speeds to slowest from Asrock autotuner about 3 months ago, not a one problem has occurred until recently this weirdness ). Anyway the moment when the match was about to start, first my fans went crazy, then the screen went black, fans slowed down, and it said " computer going to sleep " or something. Then few seconds later it shutdown and restarted. This same thing happen'd 2-3 times in row, when I was trying to get back to the game. Now I'm here writing this and running a virus check. It seems like it doesn't crash until I open up some heavy program.

Anyways, I got some Minidumps. I'm hoping you could analyze them and check if you can find any reason for this.

My specs are in my profile.

Thanks in advance !

After a recent clean install on a new SSD connected with ESATA rear port(and powered by a usb adapter),
ive been having this problem.

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit Professional w/ SP1
Keep in mind this computer has no internet so the only update ive installed was SP1 standalone installer. No updates past SP1....I've looked into the hotfixes and none of them seem like they would fix this specific problem.....

I leave the computer overnight

I hit the mouse or keyboard to wake the pc up.

Everything seems normal, The login screen comes up and it says locked. I type password.

As soon as i click to open a program or anything. Windows freezes and Restarts within 10 seconds. ( restart cycle, 1. Bios Splash screen 2. esata connected drives are shown 3.Resuming Windows 4. Login screen - locked)

I've noticed that instead of "Starting Windows" is says "Resuming Windows" while it restarts.

I've tested to see if a document stays open after restart and it does. So realistically the sleep is working.

It's not a major problem. It's just been annoying me for awhile. My old install did not restart itself after resuming from sleep.

I can say one thing, it's not the bios ( i did some research on the settings)
The bios is set to S3 (suspend -to - ram)
Power Settings are
Allow hybrid sleep (on)
usb selective suspend (enabled)

Hello all,

I would just like to start off by saying that this is my first post. So, thank you in advance for taking the time to read this.

As the title suggests, I am having issues waking my computer. I have read through numerous threads with this same problem, but none of them seem to be having the same issues as I'm having.

Upon trying to wake my computer from sleep mode (forced sleep mode), it will either freeze and has to be reset or it has already reset itself and is sitting on the start up screen where it says something like, "Continue with previous Windows session," or "Reset and start a new Windows session."

If I choose "Continue with Previous Session" it says, "Loading Windows," but before it gets to the username welcome screen it freezes and has a blinking hyphen in the top left corner of the screen. When this happens I need to reset my computer yet again and choose the "Reset and start a new session" option.

Any ideas what might be happening? I have updated my drivers and checked my ram with Windows Memory Utility.

Oh, and just today I was testing Sleep Mode. I put the monitor to sleep but couldn't wake it back up either. I could hear the computer running but the display would not turn on. So yet again, I had to reset the computer. Not sure if this was a coincidence or if it is related (which I'm thinking it is).

Now just some FYI's:

I can only use forced sleep mode because from day 1 of building t... Read more

There is something wrong with my DVD-drive after it comes out of sleep mode. I have the default power option of "balanced" which puts the computer to sleep after 30 minutes. However, when it wakes up, the DVD makes a sound like a disk spinning up (note: the drive is empty), and it keeps making the noise. Also the green light comes on. The only thing that I have found to stop the noise and activity on the drive is a reboot. I found this old post, Gotta say Im disapointed in the "Internet TV" - The Green Button, and it sounds similar, only my drive door isn't opening, just the noise (spin up?). However, I updated to my latest firmware, and that didn't fix it. I'm out of ideas. Do you have any?

The drive is a SONY Optiarc AD-7240S. Also, I thought this was just a bug in the RC 7100, but I've since updated to the official release, and it hasn't been fixed. Strange, especially that it seems like no one else is really experiencing the same thing when I've searched for fixes for the issue. Thanks!

After upgrading from windows 8 to windows 10, the laptop wont wake up correctly and just restart.

I have an Asus Q551LN

* Upgraded the latest drivers of everything, including the intel hd graphics, the same with the nvidia integrated ones and then downgraded.
* I did a clean install of my OS.
* Checked and settled many options in the power management, recommended from other users/forums/etc.
* Disabled and Enabled again the Intel Management Engine
* Flashed new BIOS firmware.

Nothing worked for me.

If someone can help me clarify the problem, I would be very grateful.

After restarting, or after awakening from sleep mode, the M90n-1 is extremely slow, even in basic operations like using Windows Explorer to list files, or in loading websites in any browser. The problem does not occur if the PC is shut down and then turned back on. This was the issue immediately after receiving the computer, before any additional software was installed. Vantage, System Update and the Lenovo online support scan all show that no drivers are waiting to be installed. Has anyone else had this problem?

Hello and sorry for the intrusion or any inconvenience.

I am running a "Windows XP home edition version 2002" Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4CPU 2.80GHz, 2.00GB of RAM

The problem persists after a while on the computer. My computer restarts, and/or freezes and sometimes when I try to restart my computer screen acts as if it is in sleep mode and never turns on, only after a while that I have my computer off does it start normally. Only recently have I had this problem where my anti-virus doesn't want to start up. Also when I tried to run a "GMER Rootkit Scan" my computer automatically restarted itself, so I can't do one.

I have a windows XP installation disk, would you recommend me to send my computer to a fix shop?

Our computer restarts when exiting sleep mode. Upon restart there are static white lines flashing on the screen and I get the Windows Error Recovery screen where it says windows failed to start. I can launch startup repair or start windows normally. A week or so ago we had this same error screen pop up but I chose Start Windows Normally and it seemed to boot fine. Now when choosing to start windows normally, I either get a blank black screen with these lines flashing or it comes back to the same Windows Error Recovery screen with the flashing lines still there. For a long time now the computer would start to buzz once in awhile, only for a bit. Right now it has that louder than normal buzz and it is steady.

It is a Dell Inspiron AMD system running Windows Vista Home Basic. I do have the Operating System "reinstallation" DVD. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

An update, I just tried to start it up normally once more and it got to desktop this time but now there are 16 vertical lines and other horizontal lines kind of flashing on the screen. The loud buzzing is there too.

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.

I just had the fan replaced, and now when I use F4 to put the laptop in sleep mode and then close the lid, it remains in sleep mode when I open the lid.  Same thing occurs when I close the lid (no F4) for sleep mode and then open the lid.  However, when I select Sleep on the Windows 7 Start Menu and close the lid, the laptop does resume when I open the lid. NOTES:- Before replacing the fan, I used F4 for sleep and resume, because when I close the lid I would sometimes find the fan running the next morning- BIOS is up-to-date- Keyboard and mouse are set to wake PC- Power Options Settings:   - Allow hybrid sleep set to OFF and Hibernate set to NEVER (As they always have been)   - USB Settings > Disabled USB selective suspend settings  (These were enabled) While this isn't a huge problem, I would like to have things working as before, preferably without having to go back to the Lenovo certified shop. Thank you in advance for your help. Jeff

So, my Acer Aspire 5251-1513 won't properly go to sleep.

When I close the lid, sometimes it goes into sleep mode, but other times it goes into ? mode. It's power button light and other power light are lit and the screen shuts off and the fan still runs normal speed. And unlike sleep mode, the only thing that will get it out of this mode is by pressing the power button.

I can put it into sleep mode manually, but I like the convenience of shutting the lid and it doing that.


And, yes, the settings say to go to sleep when lid closes in all power modes.

The thing that makes me mad about the situation is that it will overheat (65 degree C) if I put it in my bookbag.

A simpler answer for simpler minds would do please. :-}

A:[SOLVED] no sleep mode

pnp=plug and play

I have windows 7. An HP desktop and each time I come out of sleep mode I lose my internet connection. I can't get to AOL or IE. If I run the linksys repair diagnostic I can get to the internet.
If I do reboot everything works OK. I am connecting thru a router DYNEX DX-E 401 and the modem
is a Motorola SB5120. It will work ok for awhile and then will fail for no apparent reason

Hello all fellow techies,
I have just done two fresh installs on this SONY VAIO VGN-NS110e laptop and with Windows Vista Premium, but I can not get this laptop to go into safe mode!

When I press Start, and go to the shut down area, the word Sleep is greyed out.
I have installed most of the drivers off the sony website and I can not get it.
When I press the Power button while the computer is on (which usually sends it to safe mode), the computer brings up a screen that says the battery is not working properly and this will not ever go away until I reformat again. I know the battery is working properly there is just a driver or something I am missing.

How do I let this laptop "know" it's a laptop?
I am just trying to update the bios now

A:Solved: Laptop won't go into sleep mode!!

It took a couple vista updates in the end, thanks.

No. It will not hurt anything on the PC.

Sleep mode shouldn't use any electricity. Or very little.

Morning Everyone,

Having an issue with a PC that keeps either going into sleep mode or standby, not really sure which, but when I try to resume it nothing happens, no IO device is able to wake it up. I actually have to hit the power button on the case to get it turn back on and then it says it is locked and need to login. I have the same computer in a different location setup the same way that does not act this way. Any ideas on why this is happening or how to fix it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Solved: Sleep Mode / Standby

Right click your desk, select PROPERTIES, select the SCREEN SAVER tab, click the POWER button in the right hand corner. What are your settings??

Sounds as if going into HIBERNATE.

I am running Compaq SR5410F Desktop with Vista Home Premium. I installed a logitech wireless optical mouse and keyboard when I first got the computer. A few weeks ago the ability to awaken the computer out of sleepmode became impossible. First it wouldn't do it unless I click on the left key where as all along the movement of the mouse alone would wake it up. Then after only being able to wake the computer up twice by clicking the left mouse key it got worse. I then got nothing except for the keyboard to wake it. I went into the drivers and where should have been a Power Management tab along with the other tabs there wasn't. I have all the latest Compaq and Microsoft updates. I have also uninstalled the mouse driver and downloaded the newest version. I contacted Compaq (HP) through a chat session and after 45 minutes I was told that wireless mice won't wake up a computer from sleepmode to which I asked why it had always done it since I first bought it and why do my other wireless mice wake up my other computers. I got dead air after that and eventually sent to a microsoft update site to fix USB caused sleepmode problems that when used wouldn't install as they weren't needed. Any ideas would be appreciated. The computer has been completely cleaned and virus checked. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Solved: Can not come out sleep mode with mouse

I wanted to say I have solved the problem by isolating an update from HP. I actually ended up with the same problem on another desktop that is an HP Desktop. Once I removed the update and rebooted my problem became history.

Every time I turn off my PC, and come back hours later, when I push the start button it turns yellow instead of green (which I assume is sleep mode). I have to keep trying and trying to restart it, I have now found that I have to put my XP disk in - then the green lite (i guess any cd would work to get something moving)- then it will start and I have to remove the XP pro disk? I have gone to power options and it is all set to default. ( turn off hard disk "NO") ( "sleep mode" "NO" )SO ??? I'm about ready to buy a new dell, this one is only year old and I love it but I don"t enjoy not being able to start it up without all the hassle. Guess I could leave it on all the time? I have processed all idle task, and gone thru the power options 20 times, I have checked the device manager to make sure it's alrite and booting to CD is enabled. -Oh and Merry Christmas and a big thank you to -
Phantom010 - you my friend are a genius - that worked - great advice on my previous problem.

I am trying to figure out something.
We bought a brand new computer (Vista - HP slimline desktop)
It stays on all the time. When I walk away for say... 20 minutes, the screen
goes blank and it sounds like the computer is not even on.
I then just have to hit any key on my keyboard and I am ready to go.


I have another computer (XP - emachine desktop)
I want to do this same thing!
Can I?

This may be one of the dumbest requests in the world. Sorry for that!
Thank you

We have six computers on the same in-home network (one Win XP-SP3, three Win 7 (Home Prem), two Win 8.1)
Until about two weeks ago, all computers came out of sleep mode, and booted fresh, with internet access.
Starting then, on the Win 7 (Home Prem) machine, I have had to re-connect to the network every time I come out of sleep mode or have a fresh start.
What settings can I change to have the computer 'stay' connected to the network?
Also, if there is any insight, how could this have happened? I don't recall doing anything out of my usual stuff.

I had no trouble putting the computer to sleep until yesterday.
Now it goes to sleep, but 30 seconds later would wake on its own ( mouse turned off)
I did a rollback to 2 days ago when the problem did not exist - same problem.
I checked all my settings as well as Device Mgr - Network adapter box to check "allow to turn off" is greyed out.
Box is also greyed out in Mouse properties.

I also tried to set Power button to put computer to sleep.
No difference.

I have no idea what has caused this unusual behavior

Any advice appreciated.

Not having any problems, I would like to know if you put the computer in sleep mode, if you have scheduled scans, etc, does it do the scans and updates while in sleep mode? My internet connection disconnects when not in use until you come out of sleep mode. Using a desktop, not a laptop. Like I said, no problems, just want to know, will the computer come out of sleep mode by itself if a scheduled scan in in place? In other words, will it turn on to do the scan? Would like to schedule them while away but not come home to a computer turned on cause the internet comes on when the computer is active.

A:Solved: Sleep mode questions?

As far as I know, when your computer is in Sleep mode, it's in a powered down condition and will not be doing any scheduled scans.

I have a Motorola surfboard s85101 cable modem and I am wondering what is the purpose of the sleep mode switch. Should I put the modem to sleep when not in use or just leave it on 24 7. Will the modem last longer by putting it to sleep when not in use.

A:Solved: modem sleep mode

I could find no information about a surfboard s85101 on Motorola's site. Do you have a user manual? And does it say anything about a "Sleep" mode?

The Motorola Surfboard modems that I know about (e.g., my SB4200 and SB5101) have no Sleep mode but do have a Standby mode. In Standby no traffic is transmitted, but I can find no indication its use would prolong life. The life of the modem, of course, will be extended if you unplug it when it is not being used for extended periods of time (e.g., mine is unplugged for about 10 hours each night).

Acer Aspire 5670 / Genuine Intel(R) CPU / T2250 @ 1.73GHz 1.73 GHz / 2.00 GB RAM

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit (No SP)


Ever since I installed Windows 7 on my previously XP run laptop I have had sound issues.

- After I resume my laptop from sleep mode I get no more sound eventhough the taskbar volume indicator clearly shows the sound volume flashing.
I have to restart my laptop to get the sound working again.

-Also when I plug in a headphone into my laptop the sound goes dead.
If I start up my laptop with a headphone plugged in it works fine untill I unplug it and then guess what, sound no more .

In device manager under audio it is listed as High Definition Audio Device and according to Windows is functioning properly and up to date.

Furthermore Windows 7 has been working like a charm except for this flaw.
Are any of you familiar with this issue and know of a remedy?
Thanks for any advice.

A:[SOLVED] No sound after resume from sleep mode


Despite Device Manager saying that your sound driver is up to date, it most likely is not.

Update it from here: http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers...k/as_5670.html (select the Realtek Sound driver in the drop down list).

Also, by having no Service Packs installed you are missing many critical updates. I do not think that the lack of service packs is causing this issue but it would pay to update sooner rather than later.
