My Laptop restarts instead of goib to sleep 50% of the time.

Q: My Laptop restarts instead of goib to sleep 50% of the time.

This has been a problem for the last couple of months.
If i 1. close the lid or 2. go to the so called "start" menu and hit sleep, about half the time I listen and hear that my laptop has restarted itself. If i keep the lid open and watch, it clearly restarts, and sometimes it brings me to that screen that says, windows has not started properly and it gives me the option to run normally or change to safe mode. i can run normally and everything is fine.
PLEASE do not tell me to go to power options because VISTA FAILS is not an option and my power options are just fine and do not have to do with this. I would like an intelligent answer. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: My Laptop restarts instead of goib to sleep 50% of the time.

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.)

Hello everyone. So since a few days my laptop has been acting strangely. Every time my laptop goes to sleep or I close the lid it restarts when I press a key or open the lid again. I have no idea what is triggering this. I tried resetting my laptop, but every time I do so my laptop restarts about half way through. I have looked at several settings like at the power options but nothing has worked so far. The way laptop restarts is different too. The ASUS logo appears twice and it takes a lot longer to restart than normal. I have an ASUS N551JB running Windows 10. I don't know what to do now, I have looked at several forums but nothing has worked so far. If anyone could help that would be great!

What do you mean by "Resetting may laptop"?

Did this machine come with Windows 10 or was it upgraded to it?

Hi there. Can't figure out why my HP laptop restarts when woken up from sleep. Under Windows 7, it worked fine. But not with Windows 8. I have played with all the settings in power configuration. Have changed from having a screensaver to none. Makes no difference. All my drivers are up to date. I do not have HP power management installed. Windows takes care of my power management. And still, it won't resume correctly. Thanks in advance for your tips.

A:Laptop Restarts after sleep

Hello gallicbear,

I had the same issue on my desktop. Using the tutorial below to add AHCI Link Power Management - HIPM/DIPM to my power plan settings, and setting it to HIPM+DIPM for both "On battery" and "Plugged in" solved this for me.

Hopefully it will for you as well.

Ive been dealing with this issue for months and been on multiple forums with absolutely no solution.
The computer always sleeps on the first lid close, clicking start menu sleep button, and power button, AS IT SHOULD.
But when I open the laptop the 2nd time, I use it for whatever i need, and then I close the lid, or press power button, or click sleep in start menu, the whole computer does a restart.
So here is what happens if I wasnt clear ( 1st attempt to sleep works, 2nd attempt to sleep restarts, next sleep works, then the next sleep restarts, etc etc etc) **On each 2nd attempt to sleep, the fan and hardrive never turn off it just instantly restarts without pause**

This is a new laptop.

My dumpfile says something about a kernel power error each time the computer restarts on the 2nd sleep attempt, but all the support has ignored that for some reason. I will be more than happy to supply a link to my dumpfile if someone would like to have a look at it.

This is a strange issue that started happening to me a few weeks ago. On my laptop, I put the computer to sleep, then close the lid. To wake it up, I just open the lid. Recently, about 1/4 of the time I wake up my computer, the lock screen does not appear, but instead it seems that my computer crashes then restarts. I don't have any USB devices plugged into my laptop, just the power cord. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hi all, My t450s restarts instead of waking from sleep when it's been left in sleep for a prolonged period. It has happened multiple times and I cannot figure out what the issue is. It seems to only happen when the laptop is not plugged in to AC. That is, it always boots fine when it's waking while it's plugged in. What gives? How can I fix this? Cheers,

You're sure it's cold booting and not resuming from hibernation?
 
Have you checked you sleep settings to make sure it's not set to hibernate after a set time when on battery?  That's how I have mine set:  sleep and if that goes on for an extended time, hibernate.

Hello.

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.

Here is a crash dump Analysis.

Any ideas?

A:Laptop restarts when I close my lid 50% of the time.

This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x5A240)
Bugcheck code: 0x9F (0x3, 0xFFFFFA8003E85060, 0xFFFFF802F2B07930, 0xFFFFFA800669D170)
Error: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE



Unfortunately, this analysis is not complete. In general, if the error is a BugCheck Code 0x9F and the first parameter (the number after 0x9F) is 3 - then the cause is usually not the faulting driver. A full analysis of the memory dumps may reveal the faulting driver name. But the good news is that this is the type of error that's caused when there are problems entering sleep/hiberate - so it's likely to be fairly easy to fix.

Hi there, I suppose this issue could be seen as a need for a tweak (but apologise if I am posting in the wrong forum).

I have had this issue for a while with my Dell Studio XPS 1645 laptop.

It is a guess, but i'd say 5/10 times the power cord comes out of the laptop (for whatever reason - moving it etc) then the laptop will simply black screen and instantly restart and boot up again without an error message or any information as to why.

This doesn't make any sense to me because every time I do have the battery pack inserted into the laptop and over 30% battery life (this is when ill plug the charger in).

If anyone has any ideas, please do post that would be super.

Thanks a lot, Nick

A:Laptop restarts 50% of the time when the power cord comes out

The power cord issue could just be a red herring.

How long have you had this computer? The reason I ask is that it's quite possible the CMOS battery wants changing.

The batteries normally have a life of three to five years depending whether it is a rechargeable battery or not.

You mention inserting the laptop's battery pack. Is there any particular reason why you remove it in the first place?

When I place my laptop into sleep (either from the button or closing the lid), the screen goes dark and then it basically locks up.

If it's on battery the battery will last a short time (as if it was on) and then it dies. Typically, if it's on AC, I end up having to hold down the power button to kill it and then reboot.

HOWEVER. The other day it was on AC and I realized that it's just taking a VERY LONG time to get to sleep, several hours.

The OS reports that my webcam driver may be causing it to sleep slowly, but killing that driver seems to have no affect.

This is an older Dell 1720, which shipped with Vista, and technically doesn't support W7. But everything was working fine until a few weeks ago. Also, I am now using an SSD HD (so hibernate mode is disabled).

I tried killing non-essential services (and then more) and it still has the issue.

Any idea how to debug this? Is there a way to log what might be holding it up?

A:Laptop takes a long time to sleep

Yes, of course .

2. Run the xbootmgr command that corresponds to "Standby+Resume" to generate an .etl trace
3. Once the test completes (you have to let it finish, so if it takes hours to actually sleep, you need to let that happen) and the system resumes and finishes the test, you can compress the resulting .etl file and upload it somewhere for us to download and review.

Two related issues: 1) With "Turn off the display" set to never and "Put the computer to sleep" is set for a number of minutes, the computer does not sleep after the time set and the display stays on. 2) With "Turn off the display" set to a number of minutes while sleep time is set to a longer time or never, the display turns off at the set time. However, it appears the computer immediately goes to sleep at the display off time, as the display turns off the sleep and power lights start blinking. How can I tell tell whether the computer is really sleeping at that moment or whether just the display is off?

I currently run win7 ultimate 64bit, 8gig ram, intel i7-2600k cpu, and my OS runs on an OCZ SSD (all specs are in my profile)

Sleep mode is set to S3 in BIOS, I have hibernation disabled (so no hibernation.sys file on my c drive)

When I put my computer to sleep then immediately wake it up, the login screen shows instantly, I type in my pass and it loads in like 0.5 seconds.

When I put my computer to sleep but wait for around 1-2 hrs before waking it, it shows the login screen instantly but after i hit login, it gives me the Welcome spinning circle thingy for like 20 seconds before I can see my desktop. That's like longer than my entire boot-up time excluding POST.

Event viewer doesnt show any performance delay, and I dont think my OS drive (OCZ vertex 2) has a cache so I have it disabled. I'm sure all my mobo drivers and graphic drivers are up to date.

Suggestions on why this might be so? Any idea would be much appreciated!

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?

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 Sager NP8760 laptop with win7 64 Prof and a built-in fingerprint reader. I run dual monitors as I have an attached Dell 24" on the DVI out.

This machine worked flawlessly the first 2 months. When I started it up, or woke it from sleep, the fingerprint security came up, I swiped my finger and every thing was fine. Resolution and Icons were where they should be.

However, recently the startup has gotten pretty erratic. Restarts sometimes do not find the 2nd monitor, the logon always brings up the password dialogue rather than the fingerprint reader, and after start up, often both monitors are reset to a much lower resolution and in clone mode. Another restart sometimes cures it.

I don't recall changing anything. I'd like my machine to return to starting up fresh or from sleep with the fingerprint reader, and with the desktop and monitor layouts that I left it with.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

A:Huh? Sudden screwiness with restarts or sleep.

Welcome!

If possible, a system restore might do the trick. If a program you installed is causing the conflict, it will fix that.

The monitor problem almost sounds like a driver issue. I recommend updating your graphics card drivers, or uninstall them and install a fresh copy.

You may also try a repair install, if the other suggestions don't work.

Hello and welcome to SF

The type of symptom you're experiencing is frequently resolved through updating the BIOS and hardware-related drivers: NIC, video, chipset...

Therefore, that would be the first place to start. Otherwise, if you're confident that the machine is already on the latest BIOS and drivers, please go through this procedure to collect the information necessary to understand the crash:

Looks like your wireless drivers. Please:
- download a fresh copy of the wireless drivers from the PC Manufacturer's website
- uninstall the current wireless drivers
- install the fresh copy of the wireless drivers and monitor for further BSOD's

If this is a wireless USB device, you can expect BSOD's when using older drivers.
Here's my rant about wireless USB devices:





Quote:
I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.


If this doesn't solve the issues, please run Driver Verifier according to these directions: Driver Verifier Settings

My computer recently just stopped waking up from sleep/hibernate and restarts the computer. I have tried these things (in this order). I don't want to clean install all over again unless I have to and I really want to know what is causing the problem.

Updated video drivers and tried disabling a few USB options (allowing system to sleep). It seems like the problem started a couple of weeks after I upgraded the video drivers using microsoft update. Intel has it's own driver update utility, but everytime I ran it the utility gave me two choices, neither of which worked. ("Not compatible with your PC). It's very frustrating.
The BIOS is up to date (99% sure). Version 212. Unless they updated the BIOS without changing the number. I updated the BIOS shortly after Windows 10 came out, from the ASUS site.
I have tried a upgrade Win 10 repair install.
Refreshed the PC (keeping files).

I ran virus and malware scans in both normal and safe-mode, nothing found.

After my computer wakes up, I get a BSOD and it restarts. After running BlueScreenView, the error points to ntoskrnl.exe. Technically, my mobo supports Windows 8, but there are very limited drivers. I ran Windows 8 for close to a year with no problems but had to recently reinstalled it due to a BIOS update that was needed to support the two new amd gpus that I put in. I have since set the power options to never sleep and have not encountered the error since, but would like to make sure I don't have any driver issues. Thank you for any help. Attached is the .dmp file.

A:BSOD after sleep, restarts, driver_power_state_failure

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum): Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions Please use Option 1 as it provides Event Viewer logs.

Ntoskrnl.exe is the kernel (core) of the OS. If it was actually to blame, then you'd be seeing many more problems other than the occasional BSOD. Most often this is due to other, 3rd party drivers that have corrupted the memory space that ntoskrnl.exe occupies.
This can also be due to hardware issues, or Windows issues.

First, please get ALL available Windows Updates.

Although I haven't noticed this in the past, I'm seeing more and more memory dumps with antivirus programs AND Malwarebytes running. I'd suggest only running one antivirus in memory at a time - to include Malwarebytes.

Please uninstall the CD/DVD program that uses GEARAspiWDM.sys
It was mentioned in the dump file and could be a problem.
I'm uncertain as to which program uses this (many manufacturer's use it) - so please uninstall any program that writes to disks.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Please DO NOT UNINSTALL this one - it may make the system unbootable:

Hi, I've been trying to set up my old Acer Aspire Timeline X pc as a Plex media server. I noticed that the laptop immediately wakes from sleep. When idle it'll eventually go into sleep mode and then immediately wake again. This is confirmed from the event viewer log but the reason for wake is listed as unknown.

Running powercfg -requests from the command line indicated Legacy Kernel Caller preventing sleep mode but I can't figure out what the root cause is. I have just clean installed Windows 10 and even after that the PC won't sleep. I've tried disabling network drivers etc but no luck. I have also noticed that when I opt to shutdown from the Windows 10 start menu, the PC shutsdown but then immediately boots again. So it's restarting not shutting down. Don't know if the two are related?

If anyone can offer any advice I'd appreciate it. It'll make a good media server PC but I don't want it running all the time. Thanks in advance.

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).

A:Computer freezes, restarts, crashes on sleep

I'm not a log guy, but some things you might check - CPU temperature and general heat of your system, making sure it's not getting too hot and crashing. It can give you weird/strange errors. The kind of problems you're seeing on a clean install suggest a hardware failure/problem of some kind. If you do a completely clean install and it's still freezing up even with no new programs installed - all I can think of would be to update all motherboard drivers, bios and get all windows updates installed. Anyway, I'll let the log guys dig into that LOL. Just some places to start. Also - Power supply could be faulty or under powered.Merged posts - Hamluis. also i forgot to mention that when i got to my computer's properties it says both the processor and installed memory are not available.

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 !
