x230 - Does not resume from sleep

Q: x230 - Does not resume from sleep

My x230 has developed problems sleeping and resuming from sleep. These problems are new and remain after a clean install, so I think it may be a hardware issue. Symptoms: 1) Laptop doesn't sleep properly. I notice this because of the battery drain, even though the "sleep" led is on 2) Laptop doesn't wake. The power led blinks, but pressing it has no effect. I have to press and hold the power button to force a hard off, then press it again to turn on. Like I said I've never had these problems in the many years I've had this laptop, so I assume some hardware part has failed. The question is which?

Preferred Solution: x230 - Does not resume from sleep

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.)


I bought a top of the line XPS 15 9550, with 1TB M.2 SSD, 4k touchscreen and 16GB of RAM. Had frequent blue screens of death that I fixed by replacing the SSD drivers with the Samsung ones.
Now my biggest woes are that quite often the speakers crack and that I cannot put the laptop in standby/sleep.
If I have the power supply plugged in and I put the laptop to sleep, when I wake it up from sleep the internal keyboard no longer works. The keyboard backlights react to my typing but windows doesn't see me typing anything. Even the CAPS LOCK led doesn't light up if I try to toggle that key. Luckily if I connect an external keyboard, that one works.
If I don't have the power supply plugged in and I put the laptop to sleep, when I try to wake it up from sleep, it instead tries to boot and complains about a missing loader file. At that point if I plug it in and I hit retry it proceeds with the rest of the boot but of course since this is a fresh boot all of my work prior to attempting to go into standby is lost.
Please advise.
thank you!

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!

A:Slow resume from sleep if sleep for long time

My laptop has this issue. I've just accepted the fact that it just does it and simply wait the time it takes or shut it down instead of putting it into sleep mode.

New TP X230, running Win 8 Pro (clean install).I have power options set to "Do Nothing" if the lid is closed, but to put the unit to sleep if I press the Power or Sleep button. (I don't know that the computer has a sleep button, so here I am referring to the power button.)The power button works to turn the unit on, including to wake it from sleep. (So I don't think there is a hardware problem with it.)But with the computer running, if I press the sleep button nothing happens at all, although I have it set to put the computer to sleep.What might be going wrong?  (And is there a sleep button?)

A:Power Button won't put my X230 to Sleep!

Hi, maiki
Yes, there is a sleep button. Depending on the behavior of your Fn keys, then you will either press Fn + F4 or simply F4 to put the machine to sleep. I would try to create a new power plan and have the same settings to see if you can get the proper power button behavior.
Hope it helps,

Dear, I found some strange issue with my Lenovo ThinkPad X230 on Windows 10. When i've attached the battery, I try to shutdown, hibernate and sleep the labtop but the laptop didnt shutdown or hibernate properly. The screen is turn off, the WIFI symbol still bright, the power button light still blink and the fan still spining. i need to force shutdown by pressing the power button for 10 sec to turn everything off. On the other hand, if i take the battery off, pluged the power cord, everything will work fine. I can shutdown, hibernate and sleep. I used Lenovo Service Bridge to scan and install the lastest version of every driver. I also flashed the BIOS to lastest version. Unfotunately, the problem still persists.

My ThinkPad x230 doesn't work properly after waking from sleep.  The USB 3.0 ports only operate at 2.0 speeds, and as a result the UltraDock that is connected to the laptop is constantly using 15% of my CPU.  I hear the fan running for hours once this begins.  The Lenovo dock is shortening the lifespan of my Lenovo laptop.

Hello all,

I'm dumbfounded on this one. Here's what I know...

I have Win7 Home Premium, and am using it on a Media Center PC. When I put the PC to sleep, sometimes it will wake up properly, sometimes it won't. When it does not wake up from sleep...I have to manually press the power button on the computer for it to turn on (as if the computer "shut down" rather then sleep), and during boot I receive the "windows did not shut down properly" screen with the 30 second count down to select if I want to start up normally, or try safe modes. This is KILLING my recordings and driving me insane.

It seems to be that it happens mostly when I leave the PC sit overnight and I do NOT try to check on it in the morning. In other words, use the PC at night, put it into sleep mode before I go to bed between 10pm and 11pm central, and leave it alone until it is supposed to wake up on it's own to record usually around 7pm or 8pm central. So it's in sleep for around 20-22 hours.

If I put it to sleep at night around 11pm central, and in the morning before I go to work I wake it up myself around 8am central, it wakes up. I then put it to sleep & go to work around 9am central, and come home and it's recording what it should between 7pm or 8pm central.

So there definitely seems to be a timing issue, but what? It sits too long and crashes while in sleep mode??? Why? If I leave the computer running all day, it works fine, and does not crash.

I am having a few different issues resuming from sleep. With (powercfg -h on), putting the computer to sleep and resuming from sleep takes 20 second to sleep, and 45 seconds to resume from sleep. This is extremely slow because with an SSD in my system, I can cold boot in less time than it takes to resume from sleep. With (powercfg -h off), putting the computer to sleep takes only about 2-5 seconds, but resuming from sleep will display a black screen with my mouse cursor, nothing else. I would prefer having hibernation disabled as the hyberfil.sys file on my system is 8gb, and with only a 60gb SSD, I need to conserve space. I have installed the most recent drivers for motherboard, sound card, video card, BIOS, etc. Does anyone have a solution to this problem? Thanks in advance for your help.

Since replacing my old HDD with a SSD, Windows will no longer resume from sleep (it hibernates just fine). It goes to sleep seemingly fine, but when it's time to wake up, the system appears to resume as expected, but the screen remains black. The system must then be shut down by holding the power button for 6 seconds and then restarted.

Sleep had worked fine with the HDD.

General specs:
Dell XPSM1330
2.2GHz Core2Duo T7500
4GB RAM (Corsair upgrade from original 2GB)
Kingston SNV425S264GB SSD (discontinued drive, attempted to find new drivers for it but was unable to)
Dell Bios A15 (latest BIOS I can find for it)

I recall reading something about this previously, but could not recall where, nor if it had been resolved.

I suppose I'm not expecting miracles, but I do miss sleeping. Hibernating takes as long as rebooting anyway. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them.

A:Win 7 does not resume correctly after sleep

Just FYI - I had this same issue With Win7 and an Asus P6T Deluxe v1 motherboard. The only solution I found was to upgrade to the P6T Deluxe v2 motherboard.

So, I'd suggest updating these drivers first:

Over the last week or so my system does not find the 3 spinner HDDs on resuming from sleep. My searching has not found a description of a similar issue. My system has 2 SSDs, (both single partition, the Intel 520 has w8.1 and all apps, the other SSD has W10TP) 3 HDDs, and 2 optical drives. On resume from sleep the 3 HDDs are missing, a reboot finds them again, and all is well till I put the system in sleep mode.
I am now not certain just when this issue began, I installed all the applicable November patch Tuesday updates, and the 2 out-of-band updates issued a week later. I also updated the Windows 10 Technical Preview when that was issued. The Windows 10 install is on a (single partition) separate SSD.
This issue also is present on resuming after sleep when running the Windows 10 TP.
I did not disconnect the other drives when updating W10. Could that be the culprit?
Motherboard is an ASUS P8Z77-V. I have reset the BIOS to "Optimized Defaults" - no change to this issue. All drives are visible in the BIOS screens, and on the Post screen.
My most recent image is nearly 2 months old (yes, I know I should image more frequently, but have been away.) So I'd like to find a fix to this issue without reverting that far back, if possible.
All suggestions appreciated. TIA

A:HDDs not seen after resume from sleep - W8.1

Have you tried disabling both Hibernation and Sleep in Power Options to see if that's where the problem lies? I find both features to be more problematic than they are worth, prefer the screen saver setting to blank the screen and the Windows key plus L to lock the screen.

I recently replaced my 320gb boot HDD with an Intel X-25 160gb SSD using the Intel migration tool. The system worked fine except the nVidia drivers don't support TRIM. So I tried the Intel SSD Toolbox which is supposed to manually send the TRIM command to the SSD. The tool box can see the SSD but the button to send the TRIM command is greyed out.

I did some reading and found some had success with this configuration by switching from the nVidia IDE/ATA drivers to the default Windows drivers. I did this and voila, the SSD Toolbox works and sends the TRIM command. But now I have a new problem.

Whenever the system recovers from sleep, my secondary HDD is missing. It doesn't show up in Disk Manager and rescanning the disks does not find it. The only way to get the HDD back is to reboot. The BIOS never has an issue seeing the disk and neither does Windows after boot. Only after sleep. I'm assuming this is because I'm not using the nVidia drivers.

Am I stuck choosing between a disappearing HDD and an SSD that will eventually fill w/ junk?

A:HDD Disappears on Resume from Sleep

Are you using AHCI drivers and is your second drive large?

You receive various Stop error messages in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2 when you try to resume a computer that has a large SATA hard disk

In the case above it ends up with a stop because it is the system disk. disks other than the system just won't show up. I am pretty confident it is because your hard drive isn't spinning up fast enough. From the above it is apparent that if hard drive doesn't come up fast enough from sleep, windows will ignore it, even if you scan for hardware changes.

Anyhow, the above hotfix resolved my disappearing drive issue.

I'm hoping to get some help. About a month ago my pc started going to BSOD while trying to resume after being put to sleep. PC is 16 months old. I read the forums, etc and updated the ATI radeon display driver and the Realtek network driver but the problem persisted.

I also rolled back the system using restore to before the problem began but no change. I then reinstalled windows 7 64bit using the OEM CD rom and installed all the MS updates - no change. Last week, it occurred to me that it might be a monitor hw issue so I swapped out the monitor with another I had. That seemed to solve it - for 4 days - now it's doing the same thing with the second monitor.

I've attached the zipfile with the minidmp and perfmon.

I'm having some problems whenever i resume from sleep. Typically, I'll resume and I'll get a message stating that the display driver failed to respond and has recovered. Sometimes, I'll resume and get a black screen, so I'll reboot and then I'll get the BSOD pointing to nvlddmkm.sys I tried reverting to many different driver versions, but the problem still persists. Any insight on what might be happening and how to fix it would be appreciated.

Like this?

I know that the display driver version that you are using right now is the most stable one lately released, but I will suggest you to install the latest one, on a test basis.

Get the latest driver by following the option 2 here: http://www.nvidia.in/Download/index.aspx; install it using the advanced mode. Dont install anything other than the "display driver" and "PhysX Software".

If you already tried that version too, then it would be better to test the situation with a replacement GPU.

I personally experienced the display driver failed to respond and has recovered issue, on my desktop. Similarly no driver version can make the situation better. I had no way other than replacing the GPU.

Did a wide research on it, and it appeared to be a hardware issue, provided multiple versions of the driver is giving the same result.

You may perform a stress test of the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Hi there.

My computer runs Vista SP1, and has always (from new) had sporadic issues sleeping/hibernating and resuming.

The success rate of resuming from sleep or hibernate is about 40%. I know that sometimes it just doesn't work, but this is FAR lower than on my old laptop.

I've run full virus scans etc. Avast is my current antivirus. I've used Glary Utilities and IOBit Windows Care to check for problems. I've got the startup entries down as low as they can go. Here's a current list:

- Apoint (laptop touchpad utility)
- RtHDVCpl.exe (laptop built in sound driver)
- ISBMgr.exe (something Sony related I'm told is important).
- Carbonite Backup (a subscription backup service).
- Avast.
- Bluetooth.

I've recently disabled a few other things in the hope that they might be responsible. Sadly, it's looking like the solution isn't going to be that simple.

Any ideas?

This may fix it.

Go in control panel topower options and click "change plan settings" under the selected power setting then click "Change Advanced Power Settings" expand "sleep" and then click on "hybrid sleep" and turn it off.

This is a wide known issue with Vista, however it usually works if it wil never wake from sleep.

Hi, I have run into an issue with a Pavilion g60-230us laptop that I can't seem to resolve. After going to sleep or closing the lid, when I open the lid again the laptop wakes up, but the display never resumes. I can see it kind of try to come on, but nothing ever shows on the screen. I am currently on Windows 8.1 Pro. The system is 32 bit and not running a separate display adapter, just the integrated Intel configuration. I have tried downloading the latest Windows 7 driver from the HP support page for the g60 but it didn't help. They don't offer drivers for Windows 8 on this model. I have also deleted the display in device manager, rebooted and let Windows find and install its own driver, but this also didn't help. Keyboard and mouse both have the box checked for allow this device to wake the computer in the power settings.

I'm hoping someone has run into and resolved this issue and has an answer.

I installed nvidia's latest drivers.

Computer seems to work when waking up, but it seems to me that the network is trying to reconnect over the LAN and when this doesn't happen the computer will prevent me from opening any other apps or click on anything. Then if I wait long enough, I will get the BSOD and the computer will reboot to a working environment. Very weird!!

A:BSOD on resume from sleep

I fixed this issue. here it is!

The MB I use is an old Abit ultra with the nforce 4 chipset. You guessed it, windows 7 drivers are the culprit. As soon I installed the legacy drivers from nvidia 15.23 the computer not only boots up faster but it goes to sleep and wakes up on command.

This should probably be sent to microsoft seeing as how it is their drivers that are at fault, but I assume they will do nothing about it since nvidia has even decided to depreciate nfroce 4 chipset. It is how they force you to upgrade your hardware to keep other companies in business.

Hello, first post, need some help debugging a homebuilt system. Since built have had trouble with sleep/resume crashes.

Welcome to SevenForums.

Your dump files indicate a hardware error, the system couldn't initialize the HAL (STOP 0x0000005C: HAL_INITIALIZATION_FAILED).
Usual causes: Hardware, file system, boot corruption.

Check the connections to your hard drive (both power and data), make sure that your PSU is powerful enough to drive everything in the system. Make sure that the cards inside the case are properly seated. If you've added things recently - remove them. Ensure your Windows Updates are up to date. Please scan for malware with Malwarebytes

Run those tests:
HDD Diagnostic: HD Diagnostic / Disk Check
Memory Diagnostic: RAM - Test with Memtest86+
System File Scan: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Post back with your results.

There were also a lot of unrecognized drivers which were being loaded on your system. This can either mean that you're using an old (possibly an incompatible [Chinese?] program/driver) or that the system has some Malware infection(s).

A:Win 7 does not resume correctly after sleep

Is this a clean install, factory install or in-place Upgrade?

Troubleshoot the issue by checking the logs for events at the time of suspend and resume.

Next try updating your display driver, or try another Win7 or Vista driver: Driver Install - Device Manager.

Here is the tool used by Pros to trace these issues: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/1402...resume-issues/

If this doesn't help, try running SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

As a last resort before clean reinstall, try a Repair Install

Tips for getting a purrfect clean reinstall - use the ones which apply: re-install windows 7

I have been unsing sleep with XP and Vista for years now. Typically it took about a second or 2 to resume. The longest thing was to wait for it to resume the wired ethernet connection. Maybe a couple more seconds.

Now with Windows 7 it takes quite a while. I have not timed it yet, but I can actually boot my shutdown PC faster than resume from sleep. My PC has one of those motherboards that has speed booting.

The odd thing on sleep is I get this pale blue (I am color blind) with words something like Resuming from hibernation. Then goes to a black screen with the animated windows icon with test below stating resuming Windows.

I kid you not, I can do a cold boot and get to use my PC sooner.

Can someone help me fix sleep?

Try this, go to search type cmd (from adminis account) and in cmd type sfc /scannow. This will correct any corruption that may be in the system.

Closing the laptop and opening it results in a black screen. Only long press the power button restarts the Y900s. 

A:Y900s does not resume from sleep

actually the y900s doesn't go to sleep at all. At least not when a hibernation file is available. The best thing to do is: powercfg /h off in a command shell with administrator rights.

I did a fresh install on a SSD not to long ago. The computer is running very smoothly for the most part. However, sometimes when I open the lid to my laptop, it is temporarily unresponsive for a minute or so when resuming from sleep mode. It's pretty annoying. I think it has something to do with my USB settings because it only seems to do it when something is plugged in there. For example, thumb drive, external hard drive.

I tried playing with the settings in power settings. I have turn off hard disk set to never. USB selective suspend set to disabled.

Anyone know what the issue could be? Thanks for your help.

Hi everyone.

I had some trouble today with my computer. I seem to have fixed it, but thought I would share my experience to see if I can help others who may be having similar issues.

System Specifications

AMD FX-6300
4 GB 1333 mhz GSkill RAM
NVIDIA Geforce GT 630
320 GB HDD
600w Modular Ultra X3 Power supply
Thermaltake Versa H25 Gaming Case
Windows 10 PRO 10240

For 2 weeks or so I was having an issue where my system would not wake from sleep properly. Fans would spin and HDD would power up, but no video, or if video came on, it would be at the lock screen, and screen would shut off. Had to do a hard reset to get the computer to boot.

I had noticed as the computer tried to resume from sleep mode, the CPU LED would not blink, indicating that the CPU has reinitialized. Strange since that never happen before. Although I do remember I removed my CPU to test in another FX Board to see if the other board was DOA. It was and I reinstalled it in my system.

I decided to recheck everything today. "CPU, Memory, SATA Cables, etc." I reseated the memory, saw no change. Took the heatsink off of the CPU, which came off easy, and behold, I see a tiny gap, where my CPU was not fully seated. No bent pins. I'm surprised my system was even booting or running. I reinserted the CPU, fully seated it and put it back together, checked the SATA Cables, and found that one of my SATA Cables was slanted on my backup hard drive. Pu... Read more

A:Resume from sleep issue

I would say this has something to do with the drivers or the bios. my friend is having the same issue and i had it before i updated the bios.

if there is something to do with the bios you could check the motherboard manufactures website to see if there is an new update for the bios. These things can also come with windows updates and if the windows version is changing something in the power management it can also effect the bios in one way so there must be an update for the bios for this to be fixed.

Here is the link to the Asus page for bios and drivers: M5A99FX PRO R2.0 | Motherboards | ASUS USA

if there is anything in the OS that have changed i would consider you to either check some power option or try to reinstall a fresh version of windows to see if that would help.

I have a lenovo T500.
I have my setting as:
turn off monitor after 15 min
turn off hard disk at 15 min
standby by 20 min

so, when i left the computer untouch for like 1/2 and hour, it failed to resume properly.

I was able to use the mose to make it awake, but that seem to be it. on the screen, i can only see the wall paper as my background. Other than that, i don't see any icon appear on my desktop. I have try to to bunch Alt + Ctrl + Delete, but it wasn't working. But i can move the mose tho.
anyway, the only way to get my system running again is that i have to use the use the power button, shut it off and restart it.
can someone tell me why is it like this?

Hi, I have a HP dv6500 series with Vista SP2. When the computer goes to sleep, it's unable to resume, it will just stay in sleep mode, blinking nonstop. Using the power button, keyboard, touchpad, doesn't work, I have to unplug it and remove the battery and start the computer again. I updated the bios to the latest version as well as the video card drivers, same thing. Any ideas?

A:Can't resume from sleep (hardware?)

What graphics does the laptop use? Intel,Nvidia,etc

Look on the sticker on the bottom (Service Tag) and post the exact model number of the laptop.

Normally this issue can be narrowed down to the graphics driver.

Did you install the driver from the HP site or Nvidia or ATI/AMD site?

Only happens when I try to wake the computer from sleep. Already tried video card's beta driver, current driver, previous drivers but to no avail. Remove video card and use on-board video instead seems to fix the problem. But it's very slow coming out of sleep (took at least 10 seconds or more). Really wanted to use the video card instead of on board video. Any help would be deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:BSOD resume from sleep

BSOD's blame video - both the onboard and the video card.

I suspect your DeathAdder mouse as it's drivers date from 2007 - and these drivers are known to cause BSOD's in Windows systems.
Remove the DeathAdder software and physically remove the mouse from your system to test.
If that's the cause, then try more updated DeathAdder drivers that are compatible with Win8.

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

While issuing the shutdown/reset/sleep/hibernate command from windows 7 or 10 the laptop spontaneously freezes and I have to take out the battery or keep the power button 10s pressed.What I mean by freeze is that the screen goes blank but the processor is still running.The interesting thing is that if I execute the hibernate command and the laptop freezes when force stop the laptop and turn it back on again it resumes the previous state windows was in before restarting it. So from windows point of view shutdown is executed but somewhere in the last step just before turning the processor of something goes wrong.This behavior happens spontaneously, I have seen it happens most when using the laptop on battery for 1-2 hours and then executing a sleep.I have tried deactivating all power saving options from windows power center and bios.My BIOS version is 2.68 and have the latest drivers from lenovo website.I suspect the bios version 2.67, 2.68 might be the problem since after upgrading to these versions the problems started to appear.Did anyone else encounter these problem and have a solution ?If not, does anyone know how to make a bios downgrade to 2.64, downloading the update from http://support.lenovo.com/ro/en/downloads/ds029187 I can not apply it (in bios I have allowed to flash older versions.

I am sure that this has been covered before but I tried to search it and I didn't find anything. I have the problem that when I resume from sleep mode the computer spins up my dvd drive to the max and it does not respond anymore. In the device manager it no longer shows the dvd installed. The eject button does not do anything. I have to restart the computer and then it works fine again... until the next sleep resume. I have tried to talk to Gateway about the issue but they are morons and are no help.
I know that MS has this as an issue. I found this You may experience problems after you resume a Windows Vista-based computer from sleep or from hibernation and that is the problem. I have SP1 installed and that did not cure my problem. I tried the hotfix but when I run that program it says that it is not for my problem or something.

Hi there,

My laptop (Dell Vostro V13) is stuck in some kind of limbo. It went into sleep mode and won't wake up fully! It "resumes" the boot-up sequence right up until the four windows colors do their characteristic swirl animation - then the screen goes black.

I can't seem to force a fresh restart b/c every time I power off and back on, the laptop tries to *resume* and gets stuck again.

Hitting F2 and F12 allows me to run bios and memory tests, but to no avail. The laptop always attempts a resume.

How do I break this sleep-resume cycle and do a fresh restart? Reinstalling the OS is out of the question (too many important files will be erased)

many thanks!

Yesterday it worked fine, today, every time, without fail, the computer's keyboard will light up and then it will auto-restart after about 30 seconds of no response. I am not in the Windows insider program and I did not install any software. Attempting to use system restore to my last point yields an unknown error.

Okay so i'm just going to throw this problem out there. It's a strange one and I haven't heard of other people having it but i'm hoping someone will know something.

Occasionally when I wake up in the morning (I think the computer has gone to sleep overnight), turn on my screens and try to get Windows 7 to respond, nothing happens. The computer is running and the displays are getting a signal (I don't get the "No Signal Input" from them) but they appear to be suspended. No form of mashing on keys or anything will cause the monitors to respond.

Here is where things get really weird. When I force a shutdown (hold the power button until it turns off) the monitors still do not respond upon reboot. It is only when I physically unplug my computer and reseat the graphics card (Geforce 9800 GT) that the displays will respond again.

I know this doesn't sound like a Windows 7 problem but it has only occured with the builds of Windows 7 I have installed. I have no such problems with Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Ubuntu running on this hardware.

Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated because other than this potentially show-stopping issue, i'm loving Windows 7....

I am having issues with the windows sleep/suspend option. When i put the computer (desktop) into sleep/suspend state (HDD light is fully emitting), it powers down as it should saving power. But when i turn the PC back on using the power button, the computer fails to resume, at this point i can hear the HDD turning on but no HDD busy light (as it should). So basically it is appears to be frozen, nothing happens on screen.

Hi and welcome to Sevenforums.

Your problem could be the drive so let's take a look at the HDD before anything else. If your drive is failing, that's something you'll want to address ASAP. One way to check the health of your HDD is to install [email protected] Hard Disk Monitor. Why do you try this first and make sure your disc is healthy. We can go from there.

I'm running 30 Vista Business x32 machines in a multimedia academy program at a local high school, and we have the same problem that so many others have regarding internet connectivity and sleep mode. Upon resuming from sleep, the computer cannot connect to the internet, and has to be restarted. However, this issue only appears AFTER installing Symantec Endpoint Protection. I have tried disabling Symantec, but the problem still occurs, which leads me to believe that the program may have modified Vista's network access manager. The fact that our students have to restart their computers every time they need to connect to the internet after sleep mode has been activated is a serious hinderance, so I'm wondering whether anyone knows more about this issue than I do, and hopefully someone has a fix for it.

Thanks in advance,

Hi, hopefully someone on here can shed some light on this latest issue. I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T400 running a fresh install of Win7 Pro x64 with SP1. I did the clean install as normal, getting necessary drivers from Lenovo and leaving the rest to Windows. In the past this has worked well.

This time I am having an issue where resuming from sleep or hibernate takes longer than starting the system from shutdown. Looking at the event logs it seems to be driver related. I open the lid, press the power button, and I get nothing other than a power light, no HDD access light as usual. This usually takes quite a while. Once I get to the logon screen, it is unresponsive to both password and fingerprint reader. It sits like that for a while and than after logging on everything works fine.

The machine has ran Norton Internet Security 2012 from day 1 and I have no reason to believe that this is malware related.

I have saved the "Diagnostics-Performance" section of event viewer an EVTX file which should be attached to this post. It will open in event viewer.

Thanks in advance and please let me know if you need more info.

I've got an issue with my HTPC taking something like 5 mins to resume from sleep or hibernation. Cold boot is much faster, maybe 3 mins tops, but probably less. I've tried using the windows performance recorder and analyzer, but I'm not seeing my problem. I've been following a guide I found online to do it, but as I'm doing hibernate, it seems to be leaving things like the winlogon section out, which I think is because it is maybe not used when resuming from hibernate/sleep. I have an etl file I could upload, but it's quite big. Any advice, or someone who can look at my etl file and help me out?

A:Resume from hibernate/sleep is slow

With Win 7 I've found Resume from hibernate is very slow. - takes several minutes to be "usable".
Wake from sleep is very fast - takes 5-10 seconds to be "usable"..

In Win 7 I use Hybrid sleep, 99.9% of the time I wake from sleep, so it's not a big deal for me ...

I was playing on an XP system recently and was surprised how fast Resume from hibernate was.
It's almost as fast as wake from sleep in Win 7 ...

I am having problems with my Win7 PC which is periodically slow to resume from sleep, it will either:

1. take about 30 secs to go from password screen to show desktop
2.Go straight to normal screen of app that was open and allow typing etc. there but for about 30 secs is slow to open new programs or open for example Control Panel.
3.Get back from sleep in a few seconds and function normally.

I have checked "view performance details in the event log" and see a few things but nothing seems to correspond with 30 seconds of slow response. I do get errors corresponding to a USB driver, but they seem to only occur if I have something plugged into the USB hub ports on my Apple Cinema Display. It goes away if I use a port on the PC itself.

This could help stabilize the usb problem possibly.
IT would seem a older driver is getting in the way. That's my first guess anyhow.

Here is something else you can do that may help prevent usb faults.

To Disable Selective Suspend:

open the control panel
go to power options (you may have to set view to small icons)
click change plan settings
in the window that opens:
click change plan settings
click change advanced power settings, expand usb and ensure usb selective suspend is disabled.
(I do this on all my systems, the feature seems to cause more problems than anything.)
