Wake on Ring problem - Fax modem fails to wake PC reliably from standby

Q: Wake on Ring problem - Fax modem fails to wake PC reliably from standby

When my WinXPPro SP3 machine is in sleep/standby/suspend mode (S1 or S3), the fax modem wakes the machine some of the time but not all of the time. I want it to wake the PC every time, with 100% reliability. (When the PC is up and running, the modem and the machine receive faxes beautifully.)

What do you suggest?

Modem: Conexant D850 PCI V.92 Modem with recent driver update to version 7.67.0.50 (7/3/2007) (but this problem is the same now as before with the 2004 driver version)
PC: Dell Optiplex 755

BIOS: A14
OS: WinXPPro SP3 with all updates
AV: Avast Home Free

Fax software: MS Fax Console that comes with WinXPPro SP3
Printer/Fax Printer: HP OfficeJet Pro 8500 Wireless AIO (model A909g)
Screensaver: XP logo after 9 minutes; do NOT show welcome screen on resume
Power Settings: Home/Office Desk; Turn Off Monitor after 10 mins; Turn Off Hard Disks Never; System Standby after 20 mins; System Hibernates Never; Do NOT prompt for password when computer resumes from standby
Home network Ethernet connection: Intel(R) 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection card with all Wake on LAN settings ON.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I may not be able to help, but I am curious - is this a dedicated telephone line?

If not, what services do you use, like call forward, messaging, call waiting, etc.

Or does the dedicated line have anything like that that you know of? (or didn't know of)

I have a Dell Optiplex 755 with WinXPPro SP3, 2GB RAM and an Intel Core 2 Duo E4600, and it is unreliable for Wake on LAN and Wake on Ring. I also wonder whether my Standby - Sleep - Suspend (S1 or S3) is working correctly.

When the PC is in Standby - Sleep - Suspend mode (S1 or S3), Wake on LAN and Wake on Ring work some of the time but not all of the time, and I'd like them to be 100% reliable.

These may be two different problems, but your advice will be appreciated. (Also, if I should post in a different forum, please advise.)

My Network Card is an Intel 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection, and I recently upgraded its drivers using "generic" PROXP.exe from the Intel website, although this has not helped the problem. The specific driver file e1e5132.sys is now from 2009 -- it used to be from 2007. But, as I say, Wake on LAN from Standby was not and is still not reliable, both before and after the driver update.

In Settings .. Network Connections ... Local Area Connections ... Properties ... Configure ... Power Management, all the Wake on LAN options are checked ON:

- Wake on Directed Packet
- Wake on Magic Packet
- Wake on Magic Packet from Power Off State
- Wake on Link

The NIC card's Diagnostic checks are all OK.

My fax modem card is a Conexant D850 PCI V.92 Modem, and I have the most recent drivers dated 7/27/07, version 7.67.0.50. In Settings ... Phone and Modem Options ... Modems ... Properties, "Allow this device to bring... Read more

A:Trouble with Wake on Ring, Wake on LAN and Standby - Sleep - Suspend

More to above: Dell has suggested I must re-install Windows. I've never done that, and I realize I'd probably lose all my applications and data - no good. Seems to me that's like using an atomic bomb to kill a mosquito. And why should I assume that will work?

But is there a way to re-install -- or maybe fix -- Windows that leaves everything else safe?

FYI - About a month or so ago, I ran SFC (System File Checker) in repair mode, and that didn't help with this problem.

Any ideas?

Hello

I need your assistance with wake on lan.

hardware
Asrock b75m B75 mobo, realtek NIC onboard, win 7 x64.

issues
I could wake the pc before so i assume the tools are working and the configuration is correct. Wol in the bios is active and the option in the nic driver in the OS too. The system is setup to enter sleep mode automatically.

The last attempts to wake the pc up were unsuccessful though. The sleep led was buzzing but sending the magic packet didn't do anything.

What could interfere with wakeup? Is there maybe a bios bug? Or an OS/driver issue?

A:PC wont reliably wake on lan

It could be a driver issue or it may be caused by a firewall blocking the relevant port. Try to temporarily disable your firewall and test.

Also, try the wake on LAN from a clean boot mode (Bar any applications that are needed in order to get it to work) and see if that resolves anything. If it does then a third party application will be interfering.

My PC is fairly new and I'm having problems with slow shutdowns/restarts and slow sleep/wakes. Recently it seems to fail waking altogether and restarts after a while instead. Usually during waking I just have a black screen for a long time before the reset/restart but sometimes I see the Windows log-in screen but it's unresponsive.
The problem predates my CPU undervolting and doesn't seem to change when I switch RAM settings back to Auto instead of XMP (I my RAM necessitates some kind of overclock in order to function at its rated speed).

Can anyone advise how to proceed? Thanks.

yes, another question on this common topic. i searched the archives, but couldn't find a topic that was exactly like mine/supplied an answer.

i have winxp pro. standby works fine if comp is in standby for a few minutes, but won't wake up after 30 min. or so. no response at all. no h.d., no monitor, etc. i have to shut off and reboot.

all power management settings are set to 'never', except for the "computer sleep" button (which is actually on the keyboard) which is set to 'standby'. in the bios the only power management setting is what to do in the event of power failure: either 'stay off' or 'reboot'. i have had it set to 'stay off'.

so, any ideas why standby won't awaken after extended time?

thanks.

Before, I had settings that put the notepad in standby when I closed the lid. I changed that setting to do nothing when close the lid.

The notepad is set to go to standby after 15 minutes of non-use. This works fine but when I want to use it again I can't find a way to wake it up without opening the lid and using the power button.

A:can't wake from standby

u have to be a bit more elaborate with your explanation. does the whole system actualy wake up ? can u hear fans spinnin HDD working lights on keyboard/mouse/PC leds? but nothing on the screen?

if thats the issue one other member here i just read about said it was his graphics card drivers..he rolled back one and problem seem to have gone.

with me, i started having that same problem with my older comp. it wouldnt wake fully from standby like mentioned above...screen black. but this only happened after i installed a new PSU. and updated to drivers to my card. then i started to get CMOS errors on startup and couldnt even reset BIOS or anything...5year old Mobo....so i abandoned and build a new machine..

only thing i carried over was my PSU (Antec Earthwatt 500) rest is all new. with XP home sp2. i had this problem once and it was even worse..

my system was attempting to start from standbuy ..(Lights on an everything) but after 6sec or so it would shut down (or go back to stanby) briefly -for 2 secs- then start back up...then off then on again..it kept doing this till i manually reset it....no errors no nothing.

hasnt donne it again since then. but i switched my PSU cause according to PSU calc i need 490W and im at 500max with the Antec. since im going Crossfire ill get a 750w+.

Hi,

Basically my PC is refusing to wake itself up from hibernation (or standby) as it has done in the past. It seems like the actual task I schedule to run DOES run, but the PC stays in either hibernation or standby mode and doesn't bring itself to life. I've tried searching the Net but I haven't had any luck finding a solution so I thought I'd ask here!

I did have to restore my C: drive from a backup a few weekends ago as I installed Kaspersky AntiVirus and it basically made my PC unusable so I ended up formatting the C: partition and restoring it from my backup (going back to avast! in the process). However everything else seems to be working OK so I don't know why it's refusing to wake itself up! :-(

I'm only doing what I used to - using Scheduled Tasks and ticking the box 'Wake the computer to run this task' - but it's not working. The same tasks run fine while the PC's in 'normal' mode and my laptop has no such problem waking itself from hibernation either.

I really need to get this fixed in the next week as I go away on holiday on Friday and want to use the PC to record programmes while I'm away.

System details as follows:

Hardware: Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 3800+ 2.00 GHz, 2 Gb RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS, ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe ACPI BIOS Revision 0706 (21/08/2006)
Operating system: Windows XP Home SP2

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm thoroughly stumped at the moment!

Thanks

Hello,

Second time posting here. 1st time was successful

The problem I've got now is that my monitor refuses to wake from standby mode anymore. Been running the system 24/7 for long time, in and out of standby, with no trouble, then it started as intermittent issue a couple of months ago and now appears to be perminently unable to wake up. I am forced to cold boot the power button on CPU and restart. I have checked power management settings - tried changing them - and still no go. The CPU will wake fine but the monitor stays in "power saving mode" (amber light on front panel). I've tried deleting the monitor in device manager and restarting but still no luck.

Any ideas? Could this possibly be a video driver issue?

Thanks

OK I sure hope I am posting in the right area. Anyway, I will continue with my problem.

So, a few days ago, my Crucial RAM decides to have issues so I have to replace them (went to NCIX and they exchanged them no problem). Later that day, everything was working fine so I was quite happy. Now a few days ago, I was in Vista 64bit, and the PC automatically went to sleep when I was asleep. However, when I tried to turn it back on, it wouldn't come out of its sleep and I had to restart the PC with a message on the bios saying "Last BOOT failed! Something about POST something lol" So I thought to myself just to load set up defaults. Then I booted into XP no problem. Now yesterday, I had my PC on all night, then I woke up this morning to see that my mouse wasn't making my monitor come out of standby. So I wondered what could be the issue and decided to restart the computer. ALL OF A SUDDEN, I hear this long beeeeeeeeep that didn't stop until I shut down the PC! I almost ripped my hair out at this point. So I tried a few times to boot it, and eventually got it to almost boot to XP except got BSODed with 0x00000044. So I cleared CMOS by removing the battery and doing all that jazz. It seemed to be fine until later when I was in XP, I got the 0x0000007E. So I ran memtest86 and there were no issues.

To start with, I have already read on this forum dozens of threads and replies dealing with this issue.
My problem is, more or less, the same, but let me give a little bit more detailed picture.

1) At first, my computer wouldn't even go to standby and hibernate (Windows 2000), giving an error message that the driver on the standard keyboard is preventing machine from entering standby.
I've tried so many things, updating the drivers and so on, but nothing helped, until I accidentally bumped into an article listing software which, when installed, could be causing this problem.
In my case, it was Adobe Fonts. The moment I uninstalled it, the machine started going into hibernate and standby without any problems. However, although I haven't had any problems with the hibernate feature, the machine would stubbornly be refusing to awake from standby.
So, at this point, you guys there sweating with updating the drivers over this problem, know that this might have nothing to do with updating the drivers, it could very well be one of the software on your machine, causing it. Unfortunately, I can't find this article anymore. Has anybody else seen it, by any chance?

2) Unfortunately for me, a few days ago I installed an incredibly stupid program for encrypting Emails (PGPfreeware 7.0.3 ) which adds on some absolutely irremovable network drivers, completely preventing the PC from browsing and sending / receiving messages. http://download.com.com/3000-2144-4880518.htm...

Hi, and thanks in advance for your help! I'm using Windows 7 64 bit.

My computer is several years old, and just a few weeks ago started having a problem waking from standby. Up until now, it had no issues going into and coming out of sleep.

Now, whenever it goes to sleep (whether due to inactivity or putting it to sleep manually), it won't wake up. The lights come on, the fans come on, but the monitor stays in standby. I've looked around online and found that many people get a black screen when booting up, i.e. the monitor comes alive and they may get a mouse cursor, but that's not what's happening to me. I don't get a black screen--my screen is never getting a signal from the computer. I have to do a hard reset, after which I get the 'Start Windows Normally' screen.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the graphics drivers, changing hybrid sleep settings, using hibernate instead of standby, uninstalling random programs, etc, to no effect. I don't think I had any major windows or driver updates that caused it.

Any ideas??? It's driving me crazy. I'm getting to the point of trying a clean windows install... but what a pain that would be.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Hi,

I am new here. Hoping someone can help me out with this issue. I work in IT so am not a complete computer bonehead and am at my wits end with this.

My laptop is about 4 years old, it's a toshiba. For whatever reason, it started taking 5+ minutes to wake up from sleeping. If it sleeps for an hour, it's OK.. but if you leave it sleep all night and try to wake it up in the morning, it's quite cranky. After the 5+ minute wake up, it performs as normal. It was running Windows 7 Home 32 bit.

Troubleshooting steps that I have taken are as follows.

Reinstalled windows. Issue was resolved! but after about 2-3 weeks, issue came back. I thought maybe it was some type of windows update, so I reinstalled windows again and paid closer attention to the updates. Issue presented itself again after 2-3 weeks, and there were no updates immediately done prior to it starting.

I started to think maybe it was something related to my hard drive, so i performed laptop surgery and swapped out my original hard drive with a solid slate drive, and installed windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (this laptop can support 64 bit so I figured why not upgrade.).

issue again was resolved for a few weeks, and now it's back to taking 5+ minutes to wake up again.

If you're turning the laptop on from scratch, it takes 10-15 seconds tops. if you're restarting, it's 10-15 seconds tops (man, I love SSD...)... if you're waking itup within the hour, its 1-2 seconds. But anything longer then that, 5+ minutes.

I have a R30208DY Desktop PC running Windows 10 in 64 bit mode with a VGA monitor and an HDMI monitor connected to the motherboard. All was fine until my Intel Graphics driver was updated. After this the VGA monitor failed to wake up after sleep. I spent some time several months ago with assistance of the Intel support forum investigating this. It happens even if I run with the HDMI monitor disconnected. I tried numerous versions of the Intel drivers, but the only version that works after 4300 is 4424. I decided to try periodically to see whether newly released drivers have solved the problem, so have just downloaded the latest drivers from the Intel site and from the Lenovo site and found that they still have this problem. I can reinstate the 4424 driver if it gets inadvertantly updated, but would like to think that someone at Intel recognises that there is a problem and is looking to provide a new version that repairs it. Is there any feedback to Intel from this support forum to initiate this process?

Hey,

If you go into Control Panel > Keyboard > Hardware > Properties > Advanced Power Management, do you have a checkmark next to the box that says "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby"?

This should be enabled by default, but just in case it isn't....

Otherwise, you could go to the HP website and see if there is a BIOS update or other software patch available that might correct this problem; Could also check their support documentation to see if this problem is discussed.

I know that some older machines do not support ACPI, so that might also be the case...

If she logged into the console the desktop would function for some random amount of time, typically less than 10 minutes, and then suddenly the display would go into standby and nothing short of a hard reboot would bring it back. If I logged inat the console there was no problem, I could sit using the desktop for hours with no sign of standby.

To resolve the issue I finally resorted to a fresh install of XP SP3 on a new HD. I created teh user account in the same sequence 1. Administraot (Created by default) 2. Me 3. Wife
Now on a fresh install with all post SP3 patches installed, and only drivers from Windows Update the machine is exhibiting the same behavior. Any account I create as an administrator, other than my own, will run at teh console for some short amount of time and then the display goes into unrecoverable standby. Some of the time when this happens it is merely the display being nonresponsive and I am able to log in via Remote Desktop to my account, not her's, and operate normally. Other times it acts as if the entire machine went into standby but the system does not power off all the way, system LED still lit but otherwise no response at console or via network.

Hi,

When my machine was waked up from standby I found my wireless network was not connected. And I also found that wireless adapter was missing from my network connections window.
After I did a reboot of my laptop, wireless adpater was back in network connections.But wireless network was not connected and I found that Power management tab was missing under device manager tab of wireless adapter. I understood that this is in someway related to S3 issue, but not sure how to get my network back.

Windows 7 pro, desktop, 2 internal sata hd

Read most of the many threads on this subject. I have turned off Sleep using Control Panel, Editing the Registry, disabling hybrid computer as described in this forums tutorial.

The Start/Sleep button is not grayed out and still shuts down the computer although the automatic timed sleep mode seems to be eliminated. Moving or clicking the mouse does not wake up the computer as originally. I have to remove the power cord for a few minutes and then press the power button. I think the computer then comes back up w/o the windows sign-on window as if awakening from Sleep. Windows 7 initializtion is very slow.

Problem with Sleep arose after installing an external drive enclosure with a sata hd and using the esata interface which did not work and caused loss of 2nd internal hard drive.

I do not mind the automatic sleep mode if the computer would awaken properly.

Forgot to mention the following: Even though the Sleep recovery does not work, the computer responds to Restart and turn on from power shut down normally in its usual quick fashion.

The problem is when I wake up the PC from S3 sleep mode. The 2 640 GB Blacks spin up fine and I could get to the desktop but the 1 TB Black fails to start. Has anyone had issues similar to mine? Any suggestions?

Roger if you used the Windows driver feature (not a fan) it isn't that goodand I always get drivers from the manufacturer where possible and I think thisis the one for the keyboard that you want

This is the one for the mouse http://www.logitech.com/en-au/support/wireless-mouse-m310?crid=398&osid=14&bit=64
Try and let us know how it goes if it doesn't do the trick then maybe you might have to reset the BIOS to a default one - I am not sure on that though.

It started a few months ago that after sleeping for a few hours it would fail to wake and have to boot up from scratch. This problem has been getting more frequent and now it sometimes simply shuts down out of nowhere. I couldn?t pinpoint any software as the cause, it?s simply random. I tried updating the BIOS and tightening all screws, but it didn?t work.

A:S7 191 shutdowns randomly, often fails to wake up

Shutting down without warning is usually a overheat problem. Blowing it out may not be enough.It may need to be disassembled, cleaned, and new thermal paste applied to the Processor heat sink.Failing to wake could just be a symtom.

I've been scouring the internet for a while and have yet to find an answer to this problem.

Basically, when the computer goes to sleep, upon wake, the blutooth adapter does not reinitialize. It works fine on hibernate, and re-inserting the adaptor fixes the problem but that is a bit of a hassle to keep doing that to continue to use a simple bluetooth mouse.

I've tried both the default windows bluetooth stack aswell as the manufacturers stack, and still get the same issue with both. I am at my wits end trying to figure this out on my own.

But if i run the schedule as it should at night, the system never wakes in the morning and neither will the mouse let me? i have to press the power button for it to come back to life like its hibernating.

Hi,

I am running Windows 7 Pro x64 and I am having an issue where my computer goes into sleep mode, fails to wake from sleep, strangely resumes its state once I do a cold restart, and then after restarting again, refuses to boot.

Here is what's happening step-by-step:
Computer goes to sleep based on the time set in the Balance Power options scheme. Fine. Often, computer wakes up perfectly fine from moving the mouse or pressing a key. Fine. Very occasionally however, upon waking up the computer, the lights, keyboard lights, fans and everything else except for the display comes on. I am forced to do a cold shutdown by pressing the reset button. Upon booting up, Windows displays "Restarting Windows" rather than "Starting Windows" and resumes its state when it went to sleep. Strange but OK. Everything seems to work normally. The problems come in when I then do a shutdown or restart after it has resumed from the cold shutdown. The computer shuts down perfectly fine but during the next boot, freezes right during the animation of the windows logo and immediately restarts the computer and launches into the DOS-looking prompt asking whether I want to do a Startup Repair because the computer failed to boot.

I have tried Startup Repair from HD and from the Windows disc and neither have done anything. I am usually forced to just reformat everything and start anew. This problem recently started occurring after I installed an Intel X-25m 120GB ssd and put th... Read more

A:Windows fails to wake from sleep, then corrupts boot

Hi,

I just recently got hit with a similiar problem, it unfortunately resulted in a corrupted BIOS that is unrepairable, it ends up locked in a low power state. There is no one single reason why Windows fails to wake up, and it's kind of a common problem. From the research I've put into it, hardware and the version of Windows does not matter. You'll either suffer from it, or you won't. My recommendation would be to disable both your display and PC sleep settings, and stick to manually shutting down and a screensaver to completely avoid it before any possible hardware damage is inflicted, and until there is more information available on it. The CPU, mobo and PSU are the most likely to become damaged.

If you still wish to use Sleep, make sure all your drivers are up to date, along with Windows, might make a small difference.

If you have another system available to you, or are able to borrow a mates, go ahead and use it to test your hardware for faults incase your situation is hardware based, and not failed coding on Microsoft's part. Also on that note, try removing your SSD for a week or two (or however long it usually takes before your system decides to sleep in) and see if it solves it, and post back with results.

I would still keep an eye on here, no less, incase a solution comes to light. Go ahead and do some Google searches on the issue, the plethora of possible fixes people have tried may work for you.

If possible, can you recall anything else you have ... Read more

Hi there,

I am running a Windows 7 64-bit setup, and I'm trying to get a timer to wake Windows from sleep or hibernation.

I've got it to work flawlessly on my desktop, however on my laptop, a Dell D630, I can't seem to get it to work. I've created a task triggering on a specific time and running the operation '/c "exit"', which should just start a command prompt and close it again. I've set it to "run with highest privileges" and "wake the computer to run this task". However, it just doesn't boot as scheduled.

The history of the scheduler says nothing at the moment that the trigger is set to go off, but a minut later (probably when I manually boot) I get a "Task scheduler "{....}" instance of the task "\Wakeup" due to a time trigger condition."

What can I do to fix this?

Thank you.

A:Scheduler fails while trying to wake Windows from sleep/hibernation.

Hello and welcome to Seven Forums.

Some things you can try for testing:

Turn off "run with highest privileges" - you shouldn't need it for this task

Try different setting combinations for:
"Run whether user is logged on or not" / "Run only when user is logged on"
"Start the task only if the computer is an AC power"
"Stop if the computer switches to battery power"

Compare each page in the Task settings between the Desktop and Laptop.
See if you can find some different setting(s) that might cause this.

If you logon with a Standard account when the computer sleeps, try using an Admin account.

Hope this helps,
David

For years I have had dual monitors working fine in my Win 7 machine. Then a few months ago I started having problems when the computer turn on or wakes from sleep mode. The primary monitor turns on then switches off after a second. The only remedy is to
turn off the monitor, turn on, and repeat until finally the monitor stays awake.

I have tried shutting down the computer and starting using the system restore disk - the monitor does not come on. 
I tried installing a replacement video card (and turning off the motherboard video support) the problem is the same. This indicates it is not the video driver or physical video chip.

UPDATE: I found out that ASUS's Option was for diskless boot and using network hard disks as hard disks. Nothing to do with Wake up on LAN.

A:Difference Between Wake up on LAN and On Board Wake up on LAN ???

One thing that could make a BIG difference here is the fact one is a PC and the other is notebook. The ATX Form Factor standard for PCs calls for the power supply to deliver +5Vsb standby voltage to various parts of the motherboard, to include the front panel power switch, RAM (for hibernate modes), and various devices (keyboard, mouse, NIC) for such "Wake on...". commands.

A notebook, however, does not have this standby voltage because obviously, it would run down the battery if the charger is not plugged in.

Hi everyone,

From last few weeks I'm having this strange and annoying blank screen of death. I could just see a blank screen (not a blue screen) while either waking up computer from sleep or while trying to turn on the display by moving cursor/typing something(waking up from power saver mode of display, I set display to be of after few minutes of inactivity). So essentially screen becomes total blank. Just once or twice I saw this BSOD "DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE" but for all other times my screen is just blank. I could see the Hard Disk activity LED on during this blank screen. And almost after all subsequent boots, I could see "Windows has recovered from unexpected shutdown/serious error - Check for solution" message.

CPU - i7 2630QM

I did not install any nVidia/display drives since then. But just now I got another blank screen after it.

Do I have all I need to wake the server from my desktop, or do I need to install extra software (to send the "magic packet", to wake the server). If I need 3rd party software, then what is recommended?
