P50 apps closed when resuming from sleep

Q: P50 apps closed when resuming from sleep

I am not sure when this started, but my P50 is set to sleep on AC or battery after x hours of inactivity. It resumes with the touch of the power button, but all apps are closed. I have tried setting power settings to allow for hybrid sleep, but this has not helped. Some posts indicate that maybe apps are closing when resuming from sleep, and not when going into sleep, but i can't seem to find evidence either way. My system has 64gb of ram and 2 512gb PCI SSD. Any suggestions on where to look?

Preferred Solution: P50 apps closed when resuming 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.)

A: P50 apps closed when resuming from sleep

Now i suspect the machine is restarting or crashing somehow. I noticed event ID for machine entering sleep, but then event ID 12 - operating system started. Minidump folder has a 0 KB DMP file at that time. Machine was set to restart on blue screen, so tha may be it. I see minidump files from other dates too, but i have never seen a blue screen. More digging.

Hi all, hope this is in the correct forum but mods please feel free to move if not.

I've just been given a new Lenovo Yoga 2 by my work and it's running Windows 8.1 Pro.

However, I've lost work several times now as every time it goes to sleep, when it wakes up all of the apps have closed as if it shut down (the sleep light is blinking when it is asleep)! Is this normal for Windows 8 as I've never used it before and it certainly didn't do this in Windows 7?

My system was never able to resume from sleep. Tried several things, BIOS settings, settings for power management etc.
Thought it could be related to recovery software or other installed drivers etc.

But now: I replaced my harddisk with a SSD, did a fresh install of W7 Ultimate 64. Removed all possible hardware (tv card, usb devices except keyboard / mouse). Tried fail save options in BIOS and optimized settings as well but no luck.
Got most windows updates in place, installed all the latest drivers from the motherboard and graphics card, latest bios drivers and still getting BSOD.

Who can help me solving this so I can save lots of energy.
Followed the manual to attach zip file with minidumps etc. Please let me know when additional info is required.

Details about what happens:
When I put my system into sleep it goes well. When I try to wake my system:
often nothing happens and I have to shut it down holding start button
or I get back my desktop but within a few seconds I get a BSOD.

If I have seen it well I posted several minidumps, so I hope it is not too difficult to find the ones related to the resume from sleep.
Kind regards,

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.

Hi, I've got a Toshiba Satellite Pro A120 (1.5 yrs old; Intel core 2 CPU 2.33GHz; 2GB RAM) with Vista Business (SP1 32bit) and often when I put it to sleep, it will hang or crash on resume forcing me to to do a hard shut down. Sometimes the screen will just be totally black and hang, and sometimes it will get to vista's "resuming" splash screen or even the login screen and then hang/crash. Often the disk activity LED will remain on indefinitely (due to the hang) even though I can't hear any disk activity. As far as I'm aware all my drivers are up to date. I'm just so fed up with loosing documents and personal settings now I've got to do something about it, and from googling, it seems this is a pretty widespread problem but I've not come across a solution that's worked for me - I've even installed the extra KB patch that was meant to fix it.

Also, sometimes when I put it to sleep (fully charged) and not use it for a a few hours, I find that the laptop has lost power during sleep because the battery has been run flat and the ventilation grille feels warm, even though I know that the battery can normally last much much longer on sleep. Is it possible that the computer resumed itself from sleep to hibernate after 200 mins on battery (as my power settings dictate) and then crashed whilst resuming, causing it to drain itself flat (since it my laptop should have entered automatic hibernation on the critical battery warning unless it was unable to respond)? Is this a pow... Read more

...will not connect me back to internet.
It just says unidentified network and no internet access, solution is to disable and enable my adapter but it gets quite annoying.

I've noticed this before on my bro's laptop but solution to stop it from happening was never found.

I got asus P5Q-Pro p45 chipset and my card is
"Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller(NDIS6.20)" Yep, copied it from device manager .

This problem is recent, been running windows 7600 professional x64 for some time but never had it happen before on this computer, since now.

I haven't really done anything that could affect it, no new drivers, well nothing related to networking at functionality level... except 1 thing from bios.
Changing sleep mode to s3 which I believe is default because everything shuts down, except ram and that stuff to keep it alive.

Obviously, I'm going to try turning it off.
I believe this is not even rare case but I've not seen much discussion on this so... yeah.

My HP Envy 13 (d008na) laptop doesn't wake up from sleep.  I've run all trouble shooting from HP & Microsoft, done a full system recovery, rolled back to previous BIOS and spoken to HP tech support and the problem still persists.  After sleep, when I open the lid, press the power button or any key, nothing happens except the flashing power button light goes out.  The only way to boot is to hold the power button for 5 seconds and then press again to boot losing any unsaved work. Can anyone help?

I just built a new computer recently and everything seems to work fine except for the sleep mode. After it is in sleep mode I will try to resume and the computer will attempt to start up. You can hear the computer starting to work but after 2-3 seconds, everything shuts off. A few seconds later it tries to restart itself, and the same thing happens. Then it does it again and stays on, but it never outputs anything to the monitor.

Another problem affecting this is after the problem above occurs, I held the power button until it turned off and tried to reboot manually. After the computer started, again it would not output anything to the monitor.

The only way I can get the computer to actually work again is to shut it down, unplug re-plug the power cable, and start it back up. After I do that it resumes Windows to wherever it was before it went into sleep mode.

So first question is, is this a software problem or could there be a faulty piece of hardware from when I built it?

Second, if it is software, how would I remedy this?

This is my first time here so please forgive me (and feel free to correct me) if I'm doing anything incorrectly. I've been Googling this problem extensively, but haven't been able to find a fix.

I'm getting an oddly inconsistent BSOD when my computer resumes from Sleep. But it doesn't happen every time. Most of the time it resumes just fine but every few weeks I get this BSOD. When the error occurs my computer semi-resumes when I move the mouse, but it seems like it goes back to Sleep again after a few seconds of activity. Then it resumes again and this happens back and forth several times until the BSOD appears. Each time it resumes I only have a few seconds of functionality before it goes back into Sleep. Sometimes I can reboot before I get the BSOD, but it inevitably comes up when the computer is in the final stages of shutting down.

The error says:
Stop: 0x0000009f (0x00000004, 0x00000258, 0x85bc4020, 0x8315fb24)

I used the SF Diag Tool to attach the Dump File and I have Win configured for a Kernel Dump, I hope that's okay! Please let me know if there's any info I may have unintentionally left out. Thank you in advance for all of you help!!!

Hi all, I have been having an BSOD error report when resuming from sleep. Sometimes it will work fine, but generally it will start in BIOS giving me the option to start in safe mode etc. Starting normally always works with an error report waiting once windows starts. I tried going back to OEM version which was home premium x64(am using clean install of ultimatex64) via the f9 & back to factory default, but the problem persisted. I've read through other posts that it's often driver related.

For months I had Win7 installed and running without any incidents; I was using Microsoft Security Essentials. The other day I installed Win8, decided I hated it, and reformatted/installed Win7. This time I tried Avast 7 Free and things looked good for a while until I woke up my PC from Sleep mode then it crashed.

I appreciate the help.

A:BSOD after resuming from sleep

Hi auutumn,

Is this a recurring incident? I did notice it only happened on time in the syslog. Sometimes solitary flukes can occur that can "correct" themselves. Have you been able to confirm that this is a repeated incident when you wake the system from sleep?

As for the crashdump, it reported that the process wininit.exe terminated unexpectedly. Wininit is a temporarily used process that exists to initiate some other processes (primarily the desktop sessions) before it lets others do the rest of the work for the duration of Windows. Typically if something bad happens to it, it's during startup of a desktop session (each user logged on is a desktop session).

The error that caused Wininit to cave in was an I/O error (c0000006), which means something ugly happened between your RAM and your disk (primarily the paging file on your disk). What exactly caused the issue I'm not sure, but it may very well be a hardware problem.

I personally would recommend doing hardware tests, starting with Seatools running all basic tests on the Windows drive, and then at least 7+ passes on your memory with Memtest. Links to the two applications are below.

Welcome to Sevenforums.

Your crash was caused by the Huawei MT882 USB router driver(glaui64.sys) which dates back to 2007 and is hence incompatible with Windows 7.

The driver along with the software using it must be either updated or removed. You could also directly use the Ethernet port instead of the USB connection, that will fix the problem. (Using the USB interface with Routers is generally not recommended).

Well when you put you PC to sleep, its meant to instant resume, right?
Well not for me. I had problems with my PC freezing from sleep, however i think its fix (Not quite sure) Anyway back to my issue..

So i press the power Button to wake my PC up, and Loads my Gigabyte screen and some other stuff as if i was turning the PC on. Then it goes to the "Resuming Windows" screen for about 5sec. Then it takes me to a blank screen, were it has a while flashing line (sorta like command promt) Then my Monitor goes into No singal for about 30sec. Then it takes me to a blank screen once again with my mouse showing
Doesn't sound like instant resume to me
Forgot to mentition that sometimes i go to wake it up, PC turns on but nothing is on the screen. So i have to Press and Hold the power button until its Sleeping again and the wake it up again.

When i had the freezing Problem, i would sometime get instead resume but it would freeze

Hi guys,

I've had this problem on my Toshiba laptop ever since I upgraded to Win 8 (now 8.1), and I wondered if you could help.

Whenever I resume from Sleep mode, I must wait 15?20 seconds for my keyboard or mouse to respond. I sign in, and the desktop appears, but If I move the mouse or type, nothing happens. That is, until the delay's over?then it all happens. (For example, if I've moved the mouse during the freeze, the pointer now zips around the screen registering all the moves at high speed. That's how I know I can use the system again.)

I thought it might be Avast Anti-virus, which I'd heard could cause freezes. So I switched to another a/v, but it didn't help.

When I restart Windows, I can use Sleep mode a few times before the problem returns. It always returns, though.

I leave my PC in Sleep mode whenever I'm not using it, so this a frequent annoyance. (I've tried Hibernation instead, but the problem still occurs?it just takes longer to reach the sign-on screen.) Thanks for your ideas!

My computer has been really slow after returning from sleep mode recently. I usually use my computer and then just shut it over night and when I use it next, it will sometimes freeze when I click on Google Chrome. Then I will wait for a while and it will continue being slow. So then I try to shut it down and it will freeze at "Logging Off." Then I'm forced to push the button to restart it again. I feel bad doing that every time, but I can't do anything else. I did go through my performance issues on my computer and it says that "Intel Graphics Kernel Mode Driver" and "Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework Reflector" are causing Windows to resume slowly. I don't know if I should uninstall them or what.

I am having a problem with resuming from sleep mode in Vista or rather the mode that puts the computer into a low power state and keeps my session in memory.

This seems to be fine when I do it with any programs open, but if I have no programs, the computer seems to just die, and when I press the power button to revive it, the power button comes on, but nothing happens.

Oh and when I do it with programs open, the power button flashes orange, while if I do it with no programs open, the power button turns off completely.

By the way I have Windows Vista Business with SP1.

I have already tried this, but it still seems to be happening. It seems to be the same problem, so I don't know why it hasn't worked for me.

Thanks anyway for the help.

Has any one else experience abnormalities after resuming from sleep? I haven't done anything special with my laptop, most of all the programs on my laptop came from the Asus website.

Whenever my PC resumes from sleep, it refuses to open any application, Asus Smart Gesture crashes, so I lose my ability to scroll/slide to open charm menu, Google Chrome/Firefox similarly crash and refuse to reopen. Even restarting the computer doesn't work, because its stuck on the Restarting page.
However if I hold power button on the case, to forcefully shut it down, the PC will restart within a few seconds and works perfectly.

Device manger doesn't show any errors with drivers, but could there be a problem with the SSD not resuming from sleep?

There were no issues when running Windows 7.

Asus N56VZ
Adata SX900 256GB (the only modification)

I also noticed from day 1 that the hot keys to increase brightness freeze up when you get the higher ones, same goes for the back-lit keyboard, and wireless ON/OFF.

About 1min later the system blue screens. It appears to be I/O disk related however I have exhausted all tests that I know.

Greetings all.

I was very thankful to find this helpful community online and appreciate any help you may be able to offer.

I have a new Ivy Bridge system (3770k / Z77) and it's rock solid under load. I've literally virtual machines processing encrypted disk images at the same time it plays Civ V and it runs flawlessly. Never had a single issue under load.

However, when resuming from sleep, the system will sometimes BSOD. It doesn't happen every time, but has occured about 4 times in the last week or so. I've tried to ensure that drivers are up to date.

One other symptom that may help to diagnose: I've had to turn off the "blank screen" function because sometimes the screen won't come back after that. The system appears to be running but the display never returns.

System specs:
- Windows x64 Home Premium (OEM)
- i3770K @ stock clock
- Asrock Z77 Extreme6 MB
- 8MB Corsair RAM
- 850 W Raidmax PSU
- PowerColor Radeon 7950 (12.6)
- Intel 520 180GB SSD / Seagate Barracuda 1TB secondary SATA

I've attached the dump ZIP as requested in the sticky. The perfmon report is included in the ZIP folder.

Thanks again for any help you can offer

Best regards,

A:Ivy Bridge BSOD when resuming from sleep

Hello and welcome to Seven Forums,

If you are overclocking your system, please return all overclocked components to their stock speeds. If the BSOD's are found not to be caused by the overclock, you can re-overclock the components once we have finished the diagnostics.


SSD Updates

You have an SSD installed. SSD's that are not updated are known to cause or contribute to BSOD's. Please make sure the following are up to date:
SSD firmware
BIOS Version
Chipset Drivers
Hard disk controller drivers/SATA drivers
Marvell IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers (older drivers for these are especially problematic)
Other Hardware

The BSOD dumps you gave me do not give a definitive cause for your BSOD's.

As a result I recommend you check your hardware for issues. Please run Memtest86+ to check your RAM. Let it run for 6-8 passes overnight as described in the tutorial. Pay particular attention to parts 2 and 3.

Also check your HDD for errors using Seatools and chkdsk.. Download and create a bootable version of the Seatools for DOS program as described here. For check disk, follow this tutorial: Disk Check
Work through each of these steps and report back after you've completed each one. If you have any questions, feel free to ask

So this is the first time I've ever had a BSOD whilst running on stock clock speeds. I just resumed the PC from sleep when it happened. I've uploaded the file as instructed. Hoping some folks can assist.

Additional info - I took out my RAM modules a couple of days ago to test another module, which ended up working fine. When I plugged both modules in the first time, I got a no POST. After some retries of plugging them back in, it eventually POSTed.

A:BSOD after resuming from sleep/hibernate

Hi, msansone; and welcome to the forums. I looked at five dumps and all five blame RTSTOR.SYS for the crash.

RTSTOR.SYS Wed Oct 24 22:08:17 2007 - Realtek High-Speed USB Media Card ReaderRealtek

This driver is way out of date. Try to update it from Reltek. If you cannot update the driver, uninstall the card reader; it is obsolete and not compatible with Win 7.

I also find two other obsolete drivers loaded on your system. Older drivers can and do cause BSOD's with Win 7. Update these drivers.

sisagpx.sys Wed Jan 24 02:01:26 2007 - SiS NT AGP Filter belongs to SiS (R) NT AGP Filter for Windows XP by Silicon Integrated Systems Corporation. This is an XP driver. Update this driver http://www.sis.com/download/

srvkp.sys Thu Mar 20 07:22:12 2008 - SiS VGA Driver Managerbelongs to the software SiSkp or SiS (R) WindowsXP Display Manager by Silicon Integrated Systems Corporation. http://www.sis.com/download/

Take care of these three drivers, reboot and let's see how your system does.

A:BSOD after resuming from sleep. Various Errors.

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on Win7 systems due to the sptd.sys driver.
Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

5 memory dumps
5 different BSOD error codes
4 different causes blamed

This is most likely a hardware error - but this includes compatibility issues, low-level driver problems, and even malware.

I suspect that removing Daemon Tools will resolve this. But if it doesn't, post back and we'll see what else we can do. While waiting for a response, try the free diagnostics here: Hardware Diags

Further info on BSOD error messages available at: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs:
- Create a System Restore Point prior to doing any of this. DO NOT mess with the drivers themselves - leave the Windows\System32\drivers directory alone unless we specifically direct you to it!
- Please either update the older drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall them from your system. Reference links are included below.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hello, everyone. I came across this forum while searching for a solution to my BSOD problem. Usually I can fix things myself, but this has me stumped. Your help is much appreciated.

I don't know how much of this is relevant, but I will include everything that has happened leading up to my problem.

I got a new monitor (Dell 2007wfp) and hooked it up to via VGA cable. I ordered a usb cable for it, and a DVI cable and then I went out of town for two weeks and completely unplugged all electronics including my computer. When I got back I installed the new cables, plugged everything back in, and the computer wouldn't start. The light on the PSU was flashing. I re-seated the PSU and then it came on just fine. Now every time my computer tries to resume from sleep I get a BSOD with the error "Bad_Pool_Caller".

I have included the files requested in the instructions.

Again, thanks for any help you may be able to give me.

I took the plunge and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. One nagging problem is that the wired network connection is lost after resuming from sleep mode. Running IPCONFIG shows a status of "media disconnected" for the wired connection. The only way to fix it is to restart the entire computer. I've read posts from others with similar problem on the Microsoft forums, but I haven't found a solution yet. I thought I'd pose it here for the network gurus to mull over.

Things I've tried:
* Updated BIOS to the latest
* Updated drivers to the latest (most recent version is from September 2009)
* Disabled all power management settings on the adapter
* Repairing the connection doesn't work. Windows reports the cable as unplugged.
* ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew don't work again because the cable is reported as unplugged

The computer is a Dell Inspiron 530 desktop.

About 75% of the time, when I lift the lid to resume my laptop from sleep, the laptop will not resume immediately. The screen will remain black, the wifi light stays disabled, and while I can hear the fan, nothing else really happens.

Usually after anywhere from 3 to 20 seconds, though, the laptop will eventually wake up, and I believe it tends to be when the hard drive actually starts spinning -- the hard drive light will blink and I'll hear the faint 'click' of the hard disk.

The resume used to be more or less instant. I've reformatted since I first noticed this problem, yet I still have it, which makes me think it might be a hardware issue.

Any ideas on if I can do anything to fix it?

A:Laptop is delayed in resuming from sleep.

HB1547, you might want to check the timeout on your hard disk. It looks like your computer is trying to load the os and your hard disk is not ready. Check the timeouts in your power options to see if your hard disk is going to sleep and that would be a point to check.

Also, with today's hard disks, you really don't gain a lot with sleep or hibernate.

Hello Everyone,

I wish someone could help me with this, I bought my laptop a couple of months ago. I keep getting BSOD every time I resume from sleep mode. Thanks in advance.

A:BSOD while resuming from sleep mode.

SSD's were temperamental when they first came out, but their reliability has improved greatly over the last year or two. There are 2 things that MUST be checked on systems with BSOD's and SSD's:

1) That the SSD firmware is the latest available for the SSD
2) That the storage controller drivers on the motherboard are the most recent. They must date from late 2012 or later. This is ALL controllers, not just the one that the SSD is attached to.

Out of 7 memory dumps there were 3 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers)
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics
