Q: Windows 10 sleep mode

I have had my Dell xps8700 for about one year and I still can't figure out why it won't go into sleep mode from the desktop. It will if I leave it in the log on window. Any ideas?

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.)

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.

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

I think I have tried everything but windows 10 will not go into sleep mode without manually doing it from the start/power button, has anybody struck this issue and have they resolved it? any help would be appreciated

A:Windows 10 sleep mode

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. If you want Windows 10 to sleep automatically after a certain amount of time, you will need to go into the Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Power Options>Change when the computer sleeps.

Upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. It goes into Sleep mode fine but anytime push a key to come back out of it.. it does nothing and has to be reset. 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..

I downloaded the latest BIOS version which is a .cab file but trying to update it, says that the cab file cannot be read. Let me know if you need anymore information. Thanks for the help!

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.

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.

10 is now not going into the sleep mode. I read on Cnet about this problem that it might be an application that's running that's not allowing Windows to possibly go into the sleep mode. Hoping someone can help point me in the right direction to get this resolved.

Hello,

First of all - can anyone answer me on wich e-mail adress should I send all of my reports to Microsoft regarding Windows 7 problems that I encountered ?
Second, here is the problem wich was very annoying but I did solve it so my point is to warn Microsoft about this so they can fix it in future Windows update or Service Packs for Windows 7.
When you are using (for example I used "High Performance" Power Plan) and in advanced options of any of Power Plans you let option - "Hard disk - Turn off hard disk after" to be turned ON (for example if you make your hard disk turn off after 15 minutes) you will have some serious trouble.

This was happening:

In Windows Vista - all worked well. I would put my PC in sleep mode, get back for hour and just press power button on my PC and he went up pretty fast. That was great option and it was working just fine.

But in Windows 7, I found out trough days and days of testing that when I put my PC to "Sleep mode" if it's "Sleeping" more then 15 minutes - I just can't get it back to desktop from sleep!

I would press Power button, fans would start but then PC would just shut down and try to start itself again and again until i completely shut it down from power and re-started it again.
After some time I was very mystified by this problem and many of my colleagues and friends had similar or the same issue. One day we all discovered that if we set "Turn off hard disk" option to... Read more

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 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.

Hey There,

I have checked on google and found nothing that was related to what i am looking for. I installed Windows 8 on my laptop as well. Although in my power settings my laptop is set that when I close the lid it is to go into "sleep" mode. I've uploaded a screen shot to show you how I have it set. The reason I would like to set it go into "sleep mode" when I clode the lid of my laptop, is because I am on the go a lot and it would be nice to have it in sleep mode instead of having to shut it down every time I want to go some where.

After typing in CMD and running as Admin then typing powercfg -a the results were this: The system firmware does not support this standby state.
Has anyone have a clue how to fix this cause everything is all up to date with a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit. Or does it mean Windows 7 don't like the new CPU? I don't have to use sleep mode but I rather use it if I can.
See picture below.
Besides this small problem the computer works great very fast.

A:Sleep mode not working Windows 7

RELEVANCY SCORE 50.8

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 a weird sleep issue that just started, I've built a new PC, Win7x64 and just noticed this happening. When I put the computer to sleep manually, the machine looks like it goes to sleep, but the fans keep running and it 'sounds on'. If I wake the PC,
then put it right back to sleep, it goes into deep sleep and the fans go off. Nothing I can see is keeping it awake, I have a i5-2500k, Asus P68 deluxe mobo, and it seems to be a repeatable issue. If the PC wakes up by itself to do something, then goes back
to sleep on its own (times out) it goes into deep sleep. It's only when I manually do it that it has the issue. Anyone ever seen this? Thanks!

A:Windows 7 Sleep mode not turning off fan

I think it does have something to do with the ASUS AI software, although I have it set for maximum power savings...their tools are, well, badly designed and very difficult to navigate. Have been tinkering in here to see if I can get it to stop.
Also, I have the machine connected to a Windows Home Server 2011, this may also be the cause, the Launchpad app seems to like to hold open connections. Am still fiddling with each app, have stripped out most of what is always running to see what may
be causing this.Curt Kessler Franklin Loan Center

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.

I have two different WIN 7 computers here doing exactly the same thing. They go into sleep mode and frequently don't come out. Occasionally on my machine the OS has a message that says that the Video Driver had become unresponsive but it was successfully restarted, then it asks if I want to see if there is any answer for my trouble at MS central. I have never heard anything back from that.

My computer is built on an ASUS P5B deluxe with the bios recently updated. My wife's is build on an Intel motherboard and they both have the E8400 processor and they are not over clocked. Memory in one is 3Gbytes and 6Gbytes in the other. The common thing is that we both have NVIDIA 8500GT graphics cards. I have the most recent NVIDIA drivers which are dated November of this year - 195.62. The OS is Windows 7 64 bit and both machines were set up with a fresh install.

When I change the power settings for constant run the systems are stable. It's the sleep mode that is killing them. I rather would like to have the sleep mode working.

The dump file that you uploaded blames yk62x64.sys - a component of your Marvell Yukon networking card's drivers.

Please download a fresh copy from the Marvell website
Then uninstall the current copy
Then install the fresh copy

Additionally, these drivers are older and should be updated from the manufacturer's website:

We'll need the rest of the minidumps in order to perform a more complete assessment.

When system goes to sleep longer than a hour and you wake it up the bottom third of the screen freezing.

Also the bottom third wont have any hover icon effects though icon will still work, the task work as intended...

If I restart the programs the will work fine but windows has to restart for icon hover effects to work....

Hello dear friends,

There is a weird sound issue:
When I put my Pc on sleep mode and after wake-up the sound is gone and videos are lagging (1frame per 2 seconds).In device manager, it says all audio drivers are working properly, only restarting the PC fix the problem.

But I definitely need to use Sleep mode and that sound issue is really annoying.

Special thanks to helpers.

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

Hi all.
I have Power Options on my Desktop PC set to defaults..i.e Balanced is set to 10 minutes for display and 30 minutes for Sleep.
Yesterday I went to Windows Store to download the Windows 8.1 Update to update my Windows 8.
I clicked the download button and went to watch TV while it downloaded. After a while I noticed that my PC had gone to sleep. I pressed the sleep button on my keyboard to wake the PC up. I wasn't sure if the Windows 8.1 Update would just resume where it was before it went into Sleep mode or whether I would have to start the download again by going back into the Windows Store to download it again from the beginning. After waking my PC up I decided to just leave it at the desktop screen to see what happened. 3 hours later the message came up saying that the PC needed to be restarted to install the update. When I have downloaded the Windows Update in the past it usually takes 2 hrs and 15 mins but I noticed that Microsoft have changed the Windows 8.1 Update slightly since I last installed it so I wasn't sure if that accounted for the download taking longer than usual. Some of the Download options/screens are different on the latest version so the Windows 8.1 Update has definitely been altered slightly.

1. Will the download have continued from the point where it was before it went to sleep or will it have had to restart again from the beginning?
2. I was just slightly concerned that because my PC went to sleep during the Windows 8.1 Update (and it is such... Read more
