Waking laptop from sleep with lid closed

Q: Waking laptop from sleep with lid closed

Hi,
first time here, I have about a week experience (pulled out some hair) with windows 8/8.1, but I consider myself pretty comfortable with Windows in general.

When my win8.1 laptop is in sleep mode, I can wake it with a mere touch of my external bluetooth k/b without any issues, as long as the lid is opened. If I close the lid, I can continue to use it as its connected to a big Samsung plasma tv. But if I let the laptop go to sleep (or put it to sleep myself thru the menu), I am unable to wake it back; I need to pull it out from a/v furniture, open the lid and press the power button.

Is this a win8 thing, an Acer Aspire thing, or worse it can't be done?
Anyone else able to wake from sleep their win8 laptop w/closed lid???

Thanks

Preferred Solution: Waking laptop from sleep with lid closed

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.)

Try going into the power options and set the option for what to do when the lid is closed to "do nothing".

HiI'm using a HP ENVY TouchSmart 15-j198ez Notebook PC running Windows 10 64bit.I have an external display, and it's the only display I need, hence, the laptop lid is always closed. The peripherals I use are:Microsoft Designer Mouse/Keyboard Wireless Kit - BluetoothWacom Intuos 4 Tablet - USBLogitech Rumblepad 2 Game Controlle - USB None of the above mentioned peripherals wake the laptop from sleep. And I am forced to open the lid everytime I need to use the laptop. Previously I was using a Logitech USB keyboard and a Logitech Wireless Mouse (wth USB dongle) - both were able to wake the laptop from sleep with no problem. Gave up on them because I needed the extra USB slots. I also have a Bluetooth speaker set, which led me to belive that the bluetooth connection of the laptop is closing whenever the laptop is going into sleep, since it starts searching for other devices to pair with. This would explain why the mouse and keyboard can't wake the laptop, even though I have checked the "Allow this device to wake computer from sleep" boxes, for both, in the Device Manager dialogue. Any solutions for this?I would also be happy if the tablet or gamepad would wake the laptop. But the "Allow this device to wake computer from sleep" check boxes are greyed out for these devices. Thanks in advance.

Hi all,
I was just wondering if you can advise on something.
My new laptop keeps waking itself from sleep in my bag. As far as I can tell, the screen comes on and does not turn off and the laptop stays on until it runs out of battery (about 9 hours). This causes the screen and laptop in general to get very hot, as it is in my bag and in a laptop sleeve.
I wondered if it was bad for the screen to get this hot? I know the components can handle it, otherwise the laptop would shut down. But I am worried about the screen.
It is the Asus UX303LA-R4338H. It has a LCD panel (matte, non-touch, if that makes a difference). Windows 8.1.
As for the waking up: I think it might have been waking after 3 hours to go in to hibernate, so I have turned off hibernation in power settings (but I am yet to try this latest change). I have no tasks scheduled to wake the laptop, all devices bar the keyboard aren't allowed to wake it, can't be woken by internet, etc. What is curious is that it when this happens it does not sleep after 15 minutes or turn off the display after 5 minutes, as per my settings. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
Summary:-
1. Is this bad for laptop screen/elsewhere on the laptop to be on, in a closed environment, and this hot for 9 hours?
2. Any further ideas why it might be turning on and then not sleeping after 15 minutes?
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!

A:Laptop waking from sleep when closed - bad for screen?

It's definitely not good for the battery. Getting hot in the bag isn't god either. If it was me I would do a full shut down instead of sleep mode.

Howdy folks, I did some quick searching and could not find an answers to my problem and thus am posting here. I have a X1 Carbon 3rd Gen (Type 20BS) with Windows 10 and over the past 2-3 months have noticed the following problem: Problem: After placing the computer into sleep mode via the start button and closing the lid the computer will randomly start back up. I will often open my pc after noticing how overheated it is and find that it came back on and for some reason the touchscreen has been typing and opening applications. Obviously this is very annoying and results in my computer draining its batter and random applications being opened. Any ideas on what may be causing this and how I can fix it?  Happy to provide driver details and any other diagnostics if you think it would help.  Thanks,Andy

I have a Pavilion g7 series laptop.  I just pulled it apart to replace the fan, and now when I close the lid the laptop no longer goes to sleep.  I did not make any changes in the power options, so I assume I didn't get the laptop reassembled correctly after replacing the fan.  What makes the laptop know the lid is closed to sleep, and where do I look to make sure I get it put back together correctly?  Thanks!!

Hey hey, so the problem is i want to leave my laptop running when doing renders that take hours on end. I've disabled the sleep mode in every way that I know how to (see screen shots). When the lid is open it doesn't go to sleep, but when it's closed after about minutes it goes into sleep mode (all fans off etc).

This never happened with windows 7 and i've triesd programs like insomnia which haven't helped at all. Id really love to get to the bottom of this, otherwise I might have to reluctantly revert to windows 7

Anyone offering ideas would be much appreciated. Cheers

A:Unwanted sleep when laptop is closed

Hi safety1g,

FYI, I have seen this behavior before on a few Sony Vaio models, and each time it was referred back to Sony support, where they said the option to "change what the lid does when closed" is/was not supported in their power management scheme and there was no workaround for this issue. So, just consider this an FYI at this point; however, if you can't get your issue resolved quicky, I would spend 10 minutes on the phone with your laptop's manufacturing support group to see if they can confirm a similar issue.

Good luck,

Hi All
This is my first time on any forum so forgive me if I have gone to the wrong place. I have had the common problem of broken hinges on my L50 B. I have replaced both hinges and to all intent and purpose ever thing went well, i.e. the lid opens and closes great now. I have however done something wrong, the laptop now doesn't sleep when I close the lid. I have checked all the power settings and the advanced settings and they are set to sleep when lid is closed. Has anyone any idea what I may have done wrong. Can anyone tell me what the motherboard connection of the lid sensor switch looks like? Any help gratefully received.

I have a Dell Studio running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, and the laptop doesn't sleep when I close the lid, except I double-checked my settings in the control panel and it's supposed to sleep.

I've had the computer for over 6 months now and the problem first started yesterday, right after I installed the latest Windows updates. When I close the lid, the computer doesn't sleep, but even when I open the lid, nothing appears on the monitor. It's still black and unresponsive, although the power button isn't blinking, so I know it's still awake.

A:Laptop doesn't sleep when lid is closed

Hello ieatlikeawolf, Welcome to the Forum.

Could you answer a few questions?
Does the laptop go into sleep mode if you choose Sleep from the start menu?
Have you tried doing a System Restore to a point before you installed the updates?
Did you install Update KB976902 at the same time as other updates?

Hi,

Recently, whenever I wake my laptop up from sleep (from closing the lid and then opening it again), sometimes I get a BSOD.

I think it started when I updated the Intel graphics driver, so I've booted into safe mode, uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, and I still get an issue.

I've attached the debug files, there was a previous BSOD a few months ago that I was getting due to a Nvidia driver issue, but I downgraded to an earlier version and it's stopped it, so I don't think the issue is there.

A:BSOD when waking laptop from Sleep

The error code KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR STOP: 0x0000007A states that the requested page of kernel data from the paging file could not be read into memory. It appears that there are some issues with the hard disk.
Use check disk command for any errors on hard disk -
Warning: Microsoft does not recommend interrupting the CHKDSK process. Microsoft does not guarantee the integrity of the disk if the CHKDSK program is interrupted. For safety you can back up your data before using the check disk command.
Use the check disk commands as follows:
 1. Click Start. 
 2. In search window type 'cmd' and ENTER. Right click and select 'Run as administrator'.
 3. Type at the command prompt CHKDSK /P and press ENTER to scan the disk.
 4. Then type CHKDSK C: /F /R and press ENTER to repair corrupt sectors, if there are any.
NOTE: The root drive has to be C: and the command may schedule a task at the system startup, if it does, then press Y to schedule a task and restart the computer to perform chkdsk.
Once chkdsk completes, boot to the desktop and then check.

BTW what size is your HDD drive? There is a hotfix for similar symptoms in Windows 7 when you have large SATA drive:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977178
But please first try CheckDisk.
 
Hope this helps. Let us know the results.

Greetings all,

I have been working on Toshiba laptop recently and can't seem to resolve its issues. Here is a breakdown of the system:

Toshiba Satellite L505D
CPU: AMD Turion II Dual core Mobile M500 x 2
GPU: AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200
RAM: 4GB PC2 666 MHz
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

Symptoms
When the computer's lid is shut or each reaches the preset limits for its power saving mode, the monitor goes black and the machine appears to enter ?sleep mode?. However, when the lid is lifted, the monitor remains black and the computer does not respond to mouse clicks, spacebar taps or keystrokes to awaken. The CPU fan is running fairly fast, but the screen remains blank.
I am forced to hold down the power button in order to reboot the computer.
The computer works as expected until it once again enters sleep mode.

Actions Taken
There are many options with this particular model.
The one it is currently set to is produced by Toshiba and is called ?eco mode?
I have also turned off ?eco mode? and used the recommended power saving option from Windows.

Results
Both modes produced the same result ? can't wake the computer.
It used to go to a Windows login screen when it came out of sleep.
Need to figure out how to get this back.

Thank you for your input and attention to this issue.

Whenever I put my computer to sleep and try to wake it up again, I can click the screen or press a button on my keyboard to access the login screen, but there will not be a password box that shows up. I try to type in my password, but there is no response. If I let the login time out after some time, the screen resets to the original login screen before I had clicked or hit anything on my keyboard. A hard reset will correct the problem, but the problem starts again when I enter sleep mode again. I've tried chkdsk /r, sfc /scannow, all the DISM commands, and an in-place upgrade last night. I really don't want to completely reinstall my system, but it seems like I might have to after this. The only thing I think caused this problem was when I changed the permissions of my boot drive to set me as the owner. I eventually reset the permissions, but that didn't help either. You are my last bastion of hope!

A:I cannot see any password box when waking up my laptop from sleep.

Modify the registry settings and check.
Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, refer to the article:
How to back up and restore the registry in Windows
a. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
b. Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
c. Create and/or edit the following string (REG_SZ) value names with the appropriate values as described below.
> DefaultUserName: account user name
> DefaultPassword: account password
> DefaultDomainName: account domain, or machine name (if not using domains)

A:BSOD while waking laptop from sleep

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.

Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web. Removing some drivers may make the system unstable - so if you're unable to find updates, post back for info on the one's that can/cannot be safely removed.

The drivers that are struckout don't have updates available (AFAIK).
DO NOT delete them, just leave them be.

Beyond this, as there was only 1 memory dump in the upload, I have these 3 suggestions:
1. Get ALL available Windows Updates. It may take several trips to get them all
2. Start with these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics
3. If all of the hardware tests pass, then run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

Welcome
It is very difficult to diagnose a blue screen based upon one report. Your report points to a driver, which is often caused by a bad hard drive. Why not take the hard drive test and then report any new BSODS that you recieve. It would be unpleasant for you to have to take a multitiude of tests while we guess.

Hi there.

I first apologise as this doesn't apply to my current computer specs but to my friend's laptop. His laptop however is also a Toshiba Satellite and also has Windows 10 Home 64bit.

What seems to happen is when he closes the lid on his laptop his laptop sleeps as most other laptops do. But when he lifts the lid, not always but occasionally the computer wakes but with a blank screen. The power button and power, battery indicators remain on. It is almost like it has crashed/frozen at this point and a hard shutdown is required to turn the laptop back on. He claims that it could also have something to do with the large bulky 3d games he plays like Minecraft but it could be anything.

I have had a look at all the power settings both with the modern settings and old (control panel) and nothing seems to be at fault there. This also wasn't a previous problem as he had no problems with his laptop sleeping when he had windows 8.1.

Any help is greatly appreciated and I can provide more details if needed.

Hey guys. i need help with a problem. My laptop wakes up seconds after it goes to sleep.. The battery ends up dying if i dont connect to charger. i realized this problem started occurring after i experienced my first BSOD on this laptop on October 4th. i remember it said something about ntkernal or something like that. Unfortunely, i do not have the bsod dumpfile as it got deleted from cleaning some files with iobit. But, i did take a screenshot of the bsod notification. See here

i only copied 20 files after from when it happened, so if you need more info i can provide.
some things i tried already:
 

powercfg -lastwake

it just said type:fixed feature power button.
 

powercfg -devicequery wake_armed

it said mouse and keyboard, so i removed the wireless usb dongle for my mouse. still laptop wakes up after sleep.

please help me, this is really annoying.

Hi
 
0x09F blue screen means a driver is in inconsistent power state when a power state transition happens. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do without the actual crash dump files. Please force the system to blue screen by entering in to standby or hibernation. Once you got at lease two dumps, zip and attach with the reply.

I've bought a UX32ln one year ago.
For the first few months the laptop was capable of sleeping and waking up, now can only go to sleep but never wake up.
I've made sure the power options are correctly set up. So it's not this.
There's no password required at waking up.
Hibernation is disable because i use SSD (i turned it on, but the same results)
Anyone who might know what the problem could be?
Another unrelated problem is the HDMI, it doesn't transmit audio signal (the HDMI sound is always inactive in playback devices)

Hello Everyone:

I have seen the many posts about the BSOD. So I went to download the Windows Debugging Tools but each time it keeps complaining about missing files. This means I have no dumpcheck utility.

The problem occurs when I reopen my lid to wake up my laptop from sleep or hibernation. Sometimes it works fine and then other times it reboots and then after my login loads the message comes up about 'windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown'. I went to Device Manager and right click to upgrade the drivers but Windows said they were already up-to-date. I also ensured that in Windows Update, I checked the optional downloads too. However, the problem still occurred.

I am hoping that the forum members will be able to assist using the crash files that I have attached. My system specs are on my profile page. Thanks.

I recently downgraded from windows 10 to windows 8 as my laptop hated to boot when windows 10 was installed. In windows 10 I could put my laptop to sleep and wake it up just fine. However, in windows 8.1, I can no longer do that. When I try to wake it up, it instantly shuts down. It tries to restart, but cannot. It lights up for a second or two then shuts off completely. I had originally posted this in a different section but got nowhere. Can you guys help?

Original posting Computer shutting off when trying to wake from sleep

A:Crash when waking Laptop From Sleep (NO BSOD)

Are you saying that, once you wake up the comp from sleep mode, it shuts down? or is it already shutted down before you wake it up?
If so, try going to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\ and click "choose what closing the lid does" that may be the culprit
If it shuts down when you wake it up, it could be one of the following reasons:
-Conflict
-Virus Infection
-Missing file
-Incorrect boot order
-Battery Problem
-System Error

Does it work fine if its shut off and then booted up?

Windows 7 isn't officially supported on that laptop, it may not properly support Sleep functions on Windows 7. You may want to make sure you have the latest BIOS for the laptop and all the latest drivers for all the hardware as well as the latest service pack for Windows 7.

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?

When waking laptop up after sleep, no bootable devices found/no OS found. I have to hold the power button to turn it off, when I turn it back on it's fine. I have run CHKDSK and sfc /scannow after it happened and all came back clear, the laptop is around one month old. I had a BIOS update a few days ago but it was fine then, the issue started today. Edit: I ran sfc /scannow this morning and it found and repaired errors, could this be it?

Wow-and WOW!!!

I found this awesome forum because I was having the exact same problem with my laptop for over one week. It is less than 9 months old and covered under Dell's premium protection plan- all the bells & whistles, software & hardware. Blah.

My issue mirrored the thread that was last edited 1 day ago, 10/07/2012? @ 9:56pm, from beginning to end.

I carefully researched the "why" (as I am not that sys literate), I followed each and every step suggested, from beginning to end, and Voila!

My laptop sleeps and hibernates, and then comes back to life without the DRAMA and wear and tear of the BSOD.

Back to all of the protection I loaded up on: I immediately tapped into it for this issue, and they accessed control of my system over the internets- analyzed my system, I think that they updated the BIOS and drivers and then called me good. It lasted for about a day or so.

I digress. Just thank you, and thank you again- not only did it work, but I really learned a lot about Windows 7 in the process, and feel like I've tapped into an incredible resource- this outstanding, supportive community.

Hi guys,

I've been getting BSODs very frequently over the last 3 days; they happen almost immediately every time I start my computer up from sleep mode and once the computer has restarted, it works fine until I put it to sleep again. My laptop is 2 years old and this is the first time this has happened.
I have since deleted any programs that had been installed recently, have checked the computer for viruses and have checked and installed all available updates for my computer. I don't think I had made any changes before this started happening.

Thanks in advance!

I have been getting BSOD on my laptop for over a month now. It only ever happens upon waking up from sleep, never when starting it up. I've tried to used System Restore but I don't have any restore points that go far back enough. I have tried resetting to factory settings but the same problem has happened again, not sure if it's the same incident because I'd have thought a reset would have solved it, so likewise I'm not sure another reset will change anything. I've done scans with multiple anti-viruses (obviously no two at the same time), and I apparently I don't have a virus. I thought it might have something to do with the registry so I scanned for problems in the registry in both CCleaner, but despite what it tells me, nothing has changed. I also did scans with AVG PC Tune-Up which didn't do anything, either. I was considering booting from an OS disk but I only want to do that as a last resort, and if it's going to work.

Aside from BSOD, other problems include the Flash container plugin crashing midway though Flash videos (which can't be down to Flash player, because I have the latest version), playback lagging in Media Player Classic Home Cinema, even though I have the CCCP codec pack installed, and lastly when playing games, sometimes the .exe will crash or the game will jitter, even offline games, even on low graphic settings, even with the latest graphic card drivers installed.

And so I'm at a loss.
And I don't have any error codes handy, unfortunately.

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.

Hi there,

I wonder if you are able to help.

About a week ago my beloved Dell Laptop died so I have quickly had to buy a second hand replacement due to financial constraints.

The "new Laptop" is as follows:-

Acer Emachine E625
AMD Athlon TF-20 1.60 GHz
3.00 GB Ram
Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1
160 GB Harddrive

It has been bought with a fresh install of Windows 7 but on a nearly daily basis when turning the Laptop on it has asked for many updates. For example 2 days ago it asked for 208 Essential updates, yesterday 8 and today 33! Is this normal? I can understand when a fresh copy was loaded maybe updates were not done but they seem tobe more everyday!

The main problem I am having is is turning it off. I have found if I put the Laptop into Sleep or Hibernate when I wake the computer it has a blank screen and won't wake up. I have started to use Shutdown but most nights the computer turns itself on in the middle of the night and when I try to open the lid again iI have the same problem and it won't wake. So on every occasion I have to turn it off and so it restarts with the would I like to turn on in safe mode! I am sure this is not very good for the laptop.

I have not used Windows 7 before and really can't find a solution online.

Any help would be very much appreciated before I go mad or try and get my money back!

Kind Regards

Richard

System: Fresh Windows 7 x64 Installation (in Dualboot with Win10)

I have a few missing drivers (notably Ethernet driver (Realtek FE family, can't install the driver because INF file does not support installation and when pointing Windows Driver installation wizard to the location where the driver is it tells me that no driver could be found)) and I have installed a few drivers I needed either from telling the Driver wizard to look for drivers in my dualboot of Windows 10 (D:\System32\Drivers / DRVSTORE / Driver Store) and that allowed me to install Intel HD Graphics, and I also installed the Atheros Wifi Driver.
Apart from the lack of features that are available in my Windows 10 installation (that I'll be able to fix by finding out what driver I am lacking, such as a driver for my touchpad (which works but using two fingers does not allow me to scroll, etc)) I am also experiencing BSODs (so far only in Sleep mode (after closing the lid)), which BlueScreenView tells me are DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILUREs (I will attach zip file with the dmps) and points to ntoskrnl.exe as address in stack. As far as I am concerned, it is a driver error.
The BSODs only happened twice so far, each time with the computer in Sleep mode.
After waking the computer, the mouse connected through the USB port (which normally functions perfectly without any special driver, it's just a generic USB mouse) does not work anymore, although power is still supplied to it (as it lights up).

 I know the 'official' max ram on the G570 laptop is 8 GB, but some users report no problems going up to 16 GB. So I went for it and it works just fine except that waking from 'sleep' or 'hibernate' occasionally causes the blue screen. Everything else is fine. All 16 GB is available to software. I checked using memtester on an ubuntu linux install running on VM ware (on top of windows 7). So my question is - is there some workarond that will make my machine play nice with 16 GB?

I'm not sure if this is a Win10 problem or a Lenovo problem, but hoping Lenovo can do something about it:  I often connect my X1 Yoga 3rd gen via TB3 or USB-C dock, leave the lid closed, and wake it by pressing a key on the external keyboard. When I do this I get to a windows logon screen that says something like "to sign in, scan your finger on the fingerprint reader". This is pointless, because the fingerprint reader is not accessible. I think this happens every time the previous logon was via fingerprint. As a result I need to manually click another login option before I can enter e.g. my PIN. First-world problems, I know..  My question: is it possible to have Win10 always ask for PIN when I wake a closed X1 Yoga 3? Or alternatively, is there a way to prevent Win10 from switching to the "fingerprint version" of the login screen automatically, instead always staying on PIN?

I would try making the keyboard the only device that is allowed to wake the computer. Because your mouse works by detecting motion, it is far more likely to send a false signal and wake up the computer than your keyboard.

I also get error Event 6008 The previous shutdown at .... was unexpected.

I've run SFC /SCANNOW and that's fine, the keyboard is set to wake the PC, USB selective suspend is disabled, the PC is not allowed to power off USB devices and link state power management is off.

I can't think of any other software changes to try. Is there a diagnostic tool or Fixit program to help solve this problem?

My XFX PSU is playing up taking 10-20secs before the +5VSB signal appears on initial power on. Could this be an issue preventing wake from sleep?
