Windows 7 shutting down during sleep mode

Q: Windows 7 shutting down during sleep mode

A couple of weeks ago I turned off having Windows to automatically install updates. I did that because there was an update that would not install. Every time I restarted my computer after a few minutes I would get a notice to shut down. I think it was an update about my graphics card.
So For a couple of days my computer has shut itself down while in sleep mode. It evidently takes quite a while for this to happen because often I put it to sleep during the day and it doesn't happen then. My setting is to never put the computer to sleep but to turn off the display in 30 minutes. It's been that way for years with no problem until now. I would appreciate any help and thank you.
Here are my specs:

I have an HP EliteBook 8440p with Win 7 Pro.

Every evening before I go to bed I shut down my computer and reboot it in the morning. My neighbour insists that shutting down and booting does more damage and causes more problems to a pc than putting it in sleep mode when not in use even right through the night. In other words, more or less, never shutting the machine down from the initial boot when you buy it and bring it home.

So I ask the experts on this forum: What is better to do, shut the machine down at night and reboot in the morning; or put it in sleep mode overnight?

Any advice appreciated in advance.
Thanks and regards.

I just installed Win 7 on my laptop and I don't know if this is something to be concerned about or not. When it goes into sleep mode (as in shutting lid) or when I shut down the machine, I hear a sharp pop or crack. It's not the speakers because I can mute volume and it still happens. Has anybody heard of this before? Would love any comments or advice. It doesn't sound healthy. Thanks

A:When shutting down or sleep mode

sounds like the power supply tripping its overload protection
but you would have to remove the side cover off the PC / then run a stress testing program like OCCT (free) and listen closely for the exact location of the clicking noise

OCCT should make the system do its shutdown; given your current situation

I have a question regarding my laptop.

What works better...shutting Vista down all the way or using the Sleep mode?

I have been using sleep mode more often lately and have noticed more responsive programs but is it the right thing to do?

Any advice?

Secondly...I turned off my paging file since I have 4GB of RAM and dont even use 1/2 of it in the my worst case scenario(why would I ever have to allocate that part of my HDD for nothing?)...is it safe to do this?or should I still leave a paging file available?

A:What works better...shutting down the pc or using the sleep mode?

I use the sleep mode almost exclusively and have for a long time. I haven't experienced any negative effects from this use and yes the resume from sleep is a lot faster than starting up from scratch. I do restart bi-weekly just to clean everything up and start freshed.

As to the page file I can't tell you from personal experience which is better but since I run 8gb of Ram I probably don't need it based on my research. I haven't seen any negative results to having this space allocated and not used. I have read that with 4gb you don't need it but as with all tweeks the answer is what makes you comfortable. You could disable it and then if you see a performance hit you could re-enable it, I suspect that unless you are doing memory intensive processing and editing it probably won't have a neg. effect on your system.

I'm not sure if it is the same thing but, I just did a re-install and my pc is shutting down from sleep mode over night. When I hit the power button it goes to "Resuming Windows"...I'm guessing that this is an update issue.

Hello.. Vista crashed my hard drive on my inspiron 1525 about 4 wks ago.. of course comes the drama with losing the last 2 months of my life.. and yes I know to back up.. just didn't get to it (nursing school).. anyway.. since re-installing Vista and trying to get my laptop back where it was... I have noticed that when I close the lid and it's in sleep mode of course.. if left that way for about an hour or longer... IE shuts down and I've lost everything that I had open... when I restart IE it doesn't ask me if I would like to go back to the previous sessions where my tabs were before (as it did ask me this before my laptop crashed a month ago). I have discovered that it will leave IE up and running if I don't close the lid even if it sleeps with the lid open... I can't figure out why it does this and what settings were defaulted maybe differently than a year ago when I first bought this laptop from Dell. Can anyone help direct me to changing the some settings please? I have looked in the Control Panel and can move around comfortably but I'm not a big fan of Vista so there are a ton of things I don't know.
Thanks!

Hello, This problem has just started occuring. I will either shut the lid of the laptop or manually enter into sleep mode, and rather than entering sleep mode normally, the laptop simply shuts down. I lose all the windows I have open every time. I cannot figure out why this might be happening, and nothing in the 'power and sleep' settings seem to help. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone may be able to offer. Brad

My computer keeps shutting down after I put it into sleep mode, then when i start it back up it says that it shut down incorrectly. This does not happen all the time, only sporadically. Other times it will not go into sleep mode altogether! Also, I'm not sure if this is a related problem but when I put my PC into hibernate I've actually had it wake up randomly with the 'windows did not shut down correctly screen' and had to reboot my PC because it was stuck in hibernate. Does anyone know what could be causing these problems and how to fix them? thanks so much

Try disable RAC-agent and set the sleeping/turning off mode to "NEVER".

Hi,
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?
Thanks.

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

You mean automatically or from the start menu? The sleep button in the start menu appears when you've installed all of the updates for Windows 10.

Hi,
My Win7 PC has recently stopped powering off in sleep mode. I ran powercfg/energy in command prompt, which gave me a report with 6 errors which state:
"USB Suspend:USB Device not Entering Suspend"
, and one which says:
"Platform Power Management Capabilities:PCI Express Active-State Power Management (ASPM) Disabled
PCI Express Active-State Power Management (ASPM) has been disabled due to a known incompatibility with the hardware in this computer."

I have googled for answers as much as I can, but with my very low level IT experience, I've yet to fix the problem.

So far I've tried:
updating drivers for all USB devices in device manager (they were all apparently up to date)
checked powersave options

Can somebody suggest other things I should look into?
The main point is that to the best of my knowledge, I haven't installed anything new or changed any settings on my PC (I've been away for a month, but it was powering down fine the first few days on my return).
I'm wondering if some kind of software update could be the cause, but what I'm most worried about is if I've had some kind of a security breach during the course of trawling the internet (I'm using Bit Defender on auto pilot mode, nothing's been reported so far).

Hope someone can enlighten me. Thanks for your time.

Also it stops loading windows upon the first reset (the circles stop moving when says Loading Windows) then just stays on that screen which requires the reset button to be hit a second time.. finally moving past the loading circles to get to the desktop each time..

Now though my PC wont go into sleep mode all it does is breifly enter sleep mode then straight away comes back out of it, is there any thing that can be done to get around this problem.

From what I can gather there is no fix for this, but as there are some very knowledgeable people on this forum I thought I would ask.

wreaks havoc with my Norton full system scan. It is scheduled weekly, but never does it, because my computer is on, but sleeping. How can I get the scan to not stop during sleep mode or scan if it's in sleep mode? I having to constantly unsleep my computer or change my control panel settings then change it back. I can't find where to do this...which is completely stupid that it even does this IMO.

Thanks.

I`ve only started using windows 7 with a while but i noticed that if i`m downloading something with flashget the pc goes into sleep mode if i`m not doing anything else with the pc. When i come back to it and take it out of sleep mode and log in the download continues but the download was stopped while the pc was in sleep mode.
Is there a way of turning off sleep mode while an application is running?

Hi,

I have the same problem with my newly installed copy of Win7 Pro. Disconnecting and reconnecting the mouse gets things working again for me and avoids a reboot, but I haven't found a permanent fix and would very much like one.

HP Envy17
Windows 7 x 64

Many times when trying to put the computer to sleep, it either does not sleep or it will sleep but when I re-open the lid all lights and power comes on but the screen does not. This forces me to shut down the machine by removing the battery, thereby losing my work.

Any help is appreciated!

No matter what I tried, I can't get my computer to stay in sleep mode. I have disabled what devices wake my computer, but oddly, its like it dose not save the option.


I want to have my keyboard only awake my computer from sleep mode, however, I have uncheck the option to allow my mouse to wake the device but nothing seems to work.

What can I do?

A:Windows 7 won't stay in sleep mode.

Check the CMOS/BIOS Setup to see if there is anything in there such as "Wake on LAN" etc., that also will need to be disabled.

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.

Try updating your video driver and see if that helps.
Turn off screen saver if you use it.

I have a new Asus S400CA that came with Windows 8 and I updated to 8.1 out of the box. The computer crashes when it goes into sleep mode probably 1 out of 3 times. I have tried updating all the drivers, including the wireless driver. I have it set to make minidumps but they aren't being created anymore (last one was on 12/5). Usually I get no indication that the computer crashes but it takes a long time to boot back up, although occasionally it will say Windows encountered a problem and has to restart.

I am also getting a ton of Schannel 36888 errors, although I don't know if that's related.

My computer lately runs really slow on a sporadic basis so I tried doing a registry cleaning and optimization with WinThruster. While it didn't fix my computer's slowness, I've had a new annoying problem pop up.

Every time it goes into sleep mode and I try to access it through logging in, my computer doesn't go straight back to Windows 10 and instead it just loops back into the login screen. It does this even if I input my password or if I just press enter without inputting anything at all. I would have to restart my computer everytime in order to login properly which is annoying. Occasionally I also have the same problem when just turning my computer on, so I'd have to restart. I'd like to be able to properly login from sleep mode again.

A:Can't access Windows 10 from sleep mode

OK, I thought it was just me, but since the AU when I put my machine in 'Sleep', and then later try to revive it, it doesn't come out of sleep and I have to do a hard shut-off, from which it doesn't always completely boot-up, but occasionally hangs, so that I have to do the 'F9' Restore to get it to actually boot into Windows . . .
As a temporary fix I am just not using 'Sleep' for right now . . .

I have a windows 7 PC with Asus m5a99fx motherboard. I can go into sleep mode manually from the shutdown button, but it won't go automatically from setting it up in power options. I have tried going to Advanced Settings and adjusting multimedia settings, and turning off Media Streaming in network settings. Nothing has worked to allow auto sleep mode. I also have the latest driver for my ATI Radeon HD 5450 video card. When I go to CMD and put in "powercfg -energy" I get a message that says energy efficiency problems were found, 8errors, 4 warnings, 14 informational. Anyone have any suggestions?

If you have a programmable keyboard or some other convenient way to launch commands you can use this command to put your system to sleep immediately:

I've had Windows installed from scratch on a PC I put together last year.

Shortly after New Years, I started having problems with Windows crashing when the machine went into sleep mode. It was an intermittent problem at first....I would hear the computer come back on after wiggling my mouse, the fan would go on etc. but nothing would be sent to the monitors.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
ASUS M4A79XTD Evo
4 GB Patriot Ram
ASUS EAH5770cu video card
Soundblaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty
Western Digital 1 TB hard drive
LG Blu-Ray drive

Then, I'd force a hard reboot, and sometimes it would come on....and then sometimes I'd end up at a black screen, and have to reboot a second time.

I updated the majority of mobo drivers, flashed the BIOS, etc. The only thing I haven't been able to do is update the hard drive controllers....for some reason every time I try to run the executable to change those, it launches ATI Catalyst Manager for my video card. I figure there are some remnants of the install files from Catalyst Manager sitting around on the hard drive. I looked for the Windows Install Cleanup Utility, but it's no longer available.

The problem seemed to go away.

But the last several days, it's been happening *every* time it goes into sleep mode. And this last time, when I rebooted, I got a blue screen error:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.28
Locale ID: 4105

I upgraded my CQ5320F from Windows 7 to Windows 10 earlier this year and it appears that it no longer shows Sleep Mode as one of the Power options like it did with Win 7. The Power menu shows Shut Down and Restart as being the only options available now with Win 10. Is there a fix for this issue? I'm on Windows 10 Version 1607.
