Fails to wake from a scheduled sleep after a long period -

Question: Fails to wake from a scheduled sleep after a long period -

but not after a short period?

Hello to all

I have set up a windows 7 x64 machine as a file server for my htpc in the lounge.
Now to save pennies i have set it to sleep at night and then wake in the mornings so its up and ready for the music and movies to be present for the htpc.

Now if i manually run the scheduled task to set the machine to sleep and set the wake schedule for ten minutes later, it wakes fine. 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. But i have disabled hibernate using the following link.

I have a step by step guide as to what i have done in regards to both sleep and wake schedule here.

Any advice would be greatly received and tested asap, also when the kids have has their showers and in bed i will provide specs of that system if its going to help.

Starting with BIOS 1.61, Twist will fail to wake up after sleeping for approx 3 hours.  After sleeping for 3 hours, the system will enter a "deep sleep" state that Lenovo calls 30-Day Standby.  Due to a BIOS bug, the system is not able to wake from this state.  After trying to wake for 2 minutes (while the red LED flashes), eventually it will fail and the system will reboot.
 
To work-around this issue, please run Lenovo Settings from the Win8 start screen.  Then click on Power, and choose the option to disable 30-day Standby

Answer:Twist/S230u bug: system fails to wake after long period of sleep

On my Twist S230U, I have turned off the 30 day standby as suggested but it has not fixed the problem. At first I thought it had but 1 day later it hasn't. The 30 day standby is still off.

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.

I have a HTPC and it is set to sleep when switched off or when the system is on Idle for more than 15 minutes.
Up to an hour or so after I turn the PC off the remote IR reciever has no issues waking it up.
But by the next morning nothing other than a restart seems to wake the PC up. It then also places an error in the event log to say that it was unexpectidly shut down by me restarting the PC.
So it would appear that it wasn't truly off.
I have removed the Hybernate as an option so it should not be abe hibernate.

Is there a way to tell what's going on. I believe some mother boards or settings in bios put the PC into a deeper sleep , if so how can i check and fix this issue.

}Checked programs that run in the task tray for automatic update / scan settings; nothing is set to run.
}Checked Wake-On-LAN settings, WOL is completely disabled.
}Checked hardware that is allowed to wake the computer; everything is disabled.

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.

Hi All,
I have a relatively old laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad x61) which is running 32-bit Windows 7 and has an intel NIC.

I have been trying to setup wake-on-lan (inmy local network) for this machine for a couple of days and haven't been able to make it completely work. I have upgraded the bios and the drivers on the machine to the latest versions and also enabled WOL in the bios and in the driver for the NIC. When I put the machine in sleep and then after 10 - 15 minutes send a magic packet from a remote machine, it does wake up.

The problem is, when the machine goes to sleep and stays in sleep mode for a long time (over night), then I can't wake it up any more. The machine is still in the sleep mode (it does not hibernate), but I think it turns off something after being in sleep for a while.

Does anyone have any idea what the reason could be?

Thanks,
Amir

Answer:Wake-On-Lan not working after a long sleep

I have the same machine(X61) and the same problem. What I have discovered is that when the scheduler wakes the machine overnight for some activity, such as WMCE updates, the LAN device looses the WOL capability. Logging on after this and disable/enable the adapter restores WOL. I set up a simple scheduled task to wake up and then go to sleep and when it fires and the machine goes back to sleep the WOL capability disapears. The machine is connected to a switch which shows the status of the connection. After the scheduled wake/sleep the LED for the port goes out indicating the port is no longer active.

I don't have a solution to the bug but if you look at the tasks that are scheduled or that have run recently and set them so that they do not wake the machine it should circumvent the problem.

I am looking for a real solution but have not found one.

Hi and thank you,

I usually boot my machine in the morning, use it for a bit and then leave for work. After a time, the machine goes to sleep. About 5 or 6 hours latter, WMC wakes the machine to record a TV show. The recording never happens. When I get home, the machine is one but unresponsive with no display. The power button does not shut the machine down. I have to long hold the power button to kill the machine. In addition, if the machine sleeps for a shorter period and I wake it with the mouse, it crashes and restarts. I had to look at a log to find out that the machine restarted because, again, no display.

What I've done:
Updated the BIOS
sfc /scannow (revealed errors)
... /RestoreHealth (fixed errors)
Drive and memory diagnostics
Checked my problem against this forum which revealed other crash at wake threads but I'm not able to interpret the log file...

Attached is my sf debug tool output

Sincere thanks!

Your BIOSdates from 2009.
You have already the latest bios version installed. And according to Dell your system is not compatible with windows 8.1

Due to the age of the system, it's possible that it's not compatible withWindows 8.1 - you may have to consider moving back to Windows 8 or even Win7 inorder to get acceptable performance.

Hi folks. I'm having a little weird problem. This is a new system and you can see the specs in my sig. Everything is going well, and there are no problems whatsoever, except for a little weird one. Whenever the pc goes to sleep, it will not come back to life normally. I'll just have to restart it. This is what happens exactly:

Note: It doesn't happen if the PC just went to sleep, i.e. it will wake up if for example it went for sleep like a 5 seconds ago.

I come after a long day at work, and the PC will be sleeping. I'll move the mouse and the screen will come back up but only the mouse is responsive. I can only move the mouse cursor....That's all. If I press Ctrl Alt Del to enter task manager, it will bring me that page where I can choose task manager, log off, switch user...etc. And that will be it. I will not be able to do anything after that. The whole PC will freeze(after I click on task manager for example) and i will no longer be able to even move the mouse or hit Ctrl Alt Del combination to get into task manager.

I thought this might be because of my overclocking but it happened even at stock settings so it is not overclocking related. The only thing I can do is to fully disable sleep mode in both windows and BIOS(I think) to overcome this. This is just a workaround and not a solution.

Anybody have seen this before in windows 7 ? Suggestions? Comments?
Thanks.
 

Answer:Windows 7 fails to wake up from sleep

1: test your hdd with hd tune or hd sentinel to see it there are any communication or sector problems.
2: disable all background programs and see if the problem continues. if not start adding stuff back unit it happens again.
3: update your bios.
4: my preference, stop using sleep mode and turn it off. it can't take that long to boot?!

stand by/sleep mode has always been a PITA!!

My Dell desktop PC has been running Windows 10 since last Fall. About two weeks ago it began to have difficulty waking from sleep. Pressing the power button or a key on the keyboard causes the fan to come on and the hard drive to spin up, but the screen remains dark and in low-power mode. When I press a key the Caps Lock indicator lights up briefly.
I have to shut the PC down by a long press on the power button. When I reboot it, it starts up OK and in fact the previous set of running programs is reopened. I think this might be due to hybrid sleep: when I force a restart Windows reloads state from the hibernation file.
I've tried a couple of suggestions I found online, such as using System Restore to roll back. No improvement. Others have suggested changing the version of a device driver, such as the graphics driver, but my graphics driver is the same version it has been since installing W10.
Has anyone else noticed a change in the behaviour of sleep in the last couple of weeks? I'm wondering if this is due to some update pushed by Windows Update.
TIA for any advice.

Answer:Desktop PC fails to wake from sleep, how can I fix this?

Hi Richard,
Are you using Windows 10 1511 version ? If yes, Please try to install the latest windows update KB3140768 which brings your windows version into Windows 10 build 10586.164. So far it is fixing my issue with "sleep issue" on Microsoft Surface hardware.
No problem so far that I can see.
Hope this helps.

Hello, I have 3 HDDs on my PC. Two WDC 640 GB Blacks (manufacture date June 2009) and a 1 TB Black (manufacture date November 2009). I use the 1 TB Black for storing my documents while the two 640 GB Blacks are for OS/Apps and Scratch files respectively.

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?

Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-55P-UD4PA.

Windows 8.1 64-bit running on a Samsung 830 series SSD in a home built system.  I have the start menu pared down to just 3 items and it takes just 30 seconds from a cold boot to the desktop (that includes a lock screen picture and typing in a password). Disabling the lock screen picture and password would probably get me to the desktop in about 15 seconds.  However, waking the computer from sleep mode takes 30-40 seconds to reach operational status with no password required.  I have 16GB of Crucial ram installed and the whole system runs normally,  I have another computer also running Windows 8.1 that will wake from sleep mode to desktop in about 4 seconds.  Any thoughts or ideas on what might be causing the delay or suggestions on speeding it up?

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.

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.

Answer: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

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

Answer: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 all,

just bought a new Portege M800 running Vista.

When the system goes into sleepmode or hibernation, there isn't any posisbility to wake the system up. I have to remove the battery to start up again.

Downloaded and installed the latest BIOS, did all Vista updates. Also checked the BIOS, wake on LAN and wake on keyboard are enabled
Anyone else with this problem?

Meanwhile, I disabled hiernation and sleepmode in Vista, but this shouldn't be the way to do it.

Any advice much appreciated
Cheers
Dave

Answer:Portege M800 - Sleep mode and wake up fails

Hello

I?m not a Portege M800 owner but normally I would suggest that you should try to update the BIOS and install all Windows updates but you have already dont it.

What you can do now? If you have installed your own Windows version try it with ?factory settings?. Maybe it has something to do with the software or so? I?m not sure.

If it doesn?t work I think you will need professional help from an authorized service provider. The technicians can check your notebook and exchange faulty hardware parts if it?s necessary.

Other than going through each and every task in the task scheduler, is there a way to see those that are allowed to wake the machine while it is sleeping? My PC woke up this morning at 3:30 am. It then went back to sleep about ten minutes later. I've checked all of the normal things (no auto-maintenance, etc.) so I' suspecting it is a task that woke the PC up.

Answer:Find "Wake up from sleep" Scheduled Tasks

3:30am is the normal time W10 schedules to restart your PC after an update. Might be worth checking the Update page in Settings and see if your update history shows if anything happened or if a scheduled restart is set.

Ever since I've installed a second hard drive in my T410, a Hitachi 250GB drive, my machine fails to wake from sleep (sometimes)... Then I have to do a hard reset. I had the same problem without the 2nd drive when I tried to use the HD Password in the BIOS and found out that it was something to do with the Crucial M4 drive I'm using. But this same problem is now happening ever since using the 2nd drive slot. Any ideas? I really like the extra storage space and don't want to remove it based on this problem.

I am having problems powering on from sleep using Ps2 or USB devices or scheduled wake event. When I press the space bar or mouse button to wake nothing happens except I hear a short click sound (from motherboard) and the hard disc LED comes on for a split second. The second time I press there is no sound or LED flash. Same thing happens with a scheduled wake event from Windows 7. I also get this happening when I quickly press and release the power on button. When I press the power on button for longer than about 1/4 sec (guessing) then the PC comes on. This problem seems to have happened after upgrading to Windows 7 (from XP Pro). I checked the Bios and wake with PS2 devices was on. Also checked Device Manager Power Management for the mouse and keyboard and wake from sleep was on. Also checked power management options and ?allow awake timers? is checked. It appears the wake event is happening but the duration of the momentary on mechanism is not long enough to actually turn on the PC.

Answer:Can't wake PC from sleep PS2, USB or scheduled event - event triggers

Found the problem - it was a dying CMOS battery

I have a p50s running windows 7 (64 bit)... I just updated my bios two weeks to 1.22 and I am now having issues with my computer waking from sleep. The computer goes to sleep within 15 seconds of initiating sleep. I do not have an issue waking the computer from sleep if it has only been sleeping for a couple hours. However, if I leave it overnight or over the weekend without waking it, I get the login screen to input my password, but it takes almost 5-10 minutes for the computer to recognize typing my password. Once it recognizes my password, it logs in and I do not have any issues.If I hold the power button and shut the computer down and restart, select "Start windows normally" -- it recognizes typing my password and launches immediately. I do not have hibernation or hybrid sleep as an option in my power settings, so that could not be the culprit.Any help would greatly appreciated!

If you are experiencing the S10 with Vista crashing upon resume/wake up from LONG TERM sleep/suspend/hibernation there is some help from Microsoft here: Microsoft KB Microsoft KB1 The second article is more detailed in identifying the correct registry key.This problem with the S10 seems related to the usbvideo.sys driver used by the built-in Lenovo webcam so you have to find the registry key in your S10 associated with the webcam. According to the articles it is a problem with Vista and it exists in other laptops/desktops and other usb devices. These articles may also help if you are experiencing this issue with WIN7.

Ok, we are setting a scheduled task to wake up all of our computers at 6am every morning from standby. Creating a scheduled task to wake them up isn't the hard part, we've already set that up.

I am concerned though that all the computers waking up at the exact same time will create too much stress on our power circuits.

Is there a way to setup a scheduled task to run anytime between say 6am and 6:05am and it chooses anytime during that 5 minute period to run?

(We cant setup scheduled tasks on each computer manually, I am talking about thousands of computers here)
 

Answer:XP - set scheduled task to run any time during a period

How are you using a scheduled task to wake all your machines up? I know it can be done, but I'm more interested in your method.

I guess my point is if you're using some kind of script to wake them up by name, and you have a list of names, couldn't you just break up the list into multiple lists and multiple tasks at the times you want?

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 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

I have 300GB of my hard drive partitioned off for backups, and I periodically do a backup on an external hard drive. I haven't had a problem with this setup until a few days ago, when my backup space completely filled. This wasn't typically a problem; I'd just delete some old backup periods and move on. Now, however, I discovered that my backup period is 3/27/11 through today, and I can't delete that or I lose my entire backup. (Before anyone asks, I do save only the most recent system image.)

Is there any way to manually control the backup period time to prevent this from happening in the future? I'll solve my immediate problem by extending my backup partition until I can delete an old backup period, but I'd like to prevent this from happening.

Thanks!

Answer:Backup Period Too Long

My experience has been that Windows (file/folder) backup will continue to add to the existing backup set until at some point it decides to create an additional new backup set.
- A reimage will trigger a new backup set.
- Change of backup location will trigger a new backup set
- deleting all existing backups will trigger a new backup set
Apart from these observations I don't know what algorithm Windows uses to trigger new backup sets.

It's clumsy, but you can use "Change settings" to toggle between two backup partition locations to achieve what I think you want.

Windows backup (excluding images!) adds incrementally to the set. If your sets are getting too large then you probably need to prune off some of the more static data using simple drag and drop to a location and exclude this from the normal backup set.

Hi all, I'm trying to run a .bat file on my T400 laptop every morning. i want it to wake from hibernation to do so (to save energy during the night). I've trying to use XP's scheduled tasks, and checked the "wake the computer to run this task" checkbox. and well... it doesn't work. when it is hibernating and the time arrives - the laptop just beeps (like it does when you turn it on or off) but it doesn't start. stays off.when it is in sleep mode and the time arrives - the laptop, and the OS is running. scheduled tasks indicates the job is "Running" but i don't see any sign of it running - no sign of CPU usage (this script, when run, gets the CPU to 50% for like 40 minutes), and no command prompt opens. can anyone help me to try to get it to run, and the wake up from hibernation as well?thanks!

Dear community,I have a lenovo R400 which I love dearly and which I can hardly find any faults with. However, in the interest of energy efficiency I wanted to set it to wake up on a timer and do some tasks, and the system seems incapable of doing this.I set a timer under Windows Task Scheduler for a time that the computer will be in standby mode, then I authorize it to wake the computer up from standby and also set the power scheme to "allow wake from standby" in the windows power scheme. Clearly I've got most of it correct because the machine does something at the specified time: the hard drive revs for a second, the standby light flashes as if it were coming out of standby, but then it falters and goes back to sleep, all in the course of about a second. I.e. - this is far too short for anything to be actively putting the computer back into standby once it's awake - it just isn't waking up all the way, and just hits "snooze."Any thoughts? Thanks!!!Ben













Solved!

Use Microsoft Security Essentials as replacement: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Next, update this 2005 ASUS Driver (read the note for the instruction)

Hello everyone. I recently (4/1/16)  bought a Lenovo Yoga 700 14-inch laptop and love it, but I noticed an issue come up two days after using it.  If the laptop is on for too long the touchscreen becomes unresponsive in the middle of the screen and eventually towards the edges. I can fix this problem by restarting the laptop and the rest of the computer functions as normal.  Is this a common issue with this laptop? Or should I exchange it for a different one (same model and everything just different computer)? Or is there a simple solution to this? I changed some of the settings (nothing major) but might have changed something to make it do this.  Just please let me know if there is a solution or if I should turn it in for a different one.

Welcome to SF!

First thing you need to do is memorize your unique Customer Identification Number (CIN), and Thread Identification Number (TIN)

CIN: 101255
TIN: 105037

Just kidding.

First thing, install the latest ATK0110 Utility for XP/Vista/7 from here: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support-

Search for your motherboard model, M2N32. The full model of your mobo is M2N32 SLI Deluxe.

Also, install these latest nForce drivers: NVIDIA DRIVERS 15.53 WHQL

I'm hoping that works, because I'm having trouble finding drivers for your Silicon Image hard drive controller!

If that doesn't work, enable driver verifier: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

So it seems that after the DragonSvc kicks in, the computer wakes up and does not go back to sleep. As such, other programs that were suspended in sleep are awake and begin running processes.

Hmmm? the same data appears in the BIOS too. Right?

To be honest I don?t know exactly why this happens but possibly the RTC/CMOS battery is not charged or simply faulty?

Usually if the BIOS battery is empty, the date and time values would be rested.
In such case it?s necessary to recharge the battery again?

I think you could find more details ?how to charge the CMOS battery? in your user manual.

My X-series Thinkpad won't let me log in after a long while turned off (a few months without ever powering on). It boots up but it does not accept my password. Also, it dies immediately whenever unplugged, whereas it used to have decent battery life. This is probably my fault as I think I left it plugged in for a long while when it was off, which must have drained the battery life. Now that that has happened, the fingerprint scanner is disabled because I think it automatically does that when the charge is too low or something and you have to log in to turn it back on. As I said, I cannot log on. I am pretty sure I am using the correct password but I fear the password may have been corrupted by viruses. I have had problems with malware on this machine before; I do not believe I had lost any data previously, but they had not been weak or tame viruses; at least, I had to be in Safe Mode to get rid of them, and they had created some registry keys, so they were stronger than any viruses I had encountered before. I thought I got rid of them all with my anti-malware programs but I guess not.

Hi there, I normally leave my computer on overnight so I could do things such as defragging, virus scans and sometimes downloading.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64, which I installed 3 days ago as I got a new hard drive. The system was blue screening since then, so I'm guessing it's not a faulty hard drive, OS or memory (Replaced memory and done 20 hours of memtest86+)

I bought this machine about 7 months ago, but since then I have replaced the motherboard, memory, graphics card, CPU cooler and hard drive.

It only seems to bluescreen when idle, like when all it's doing is downloading on uTorrent or has finished doing a defrag.

According to bluescreenview, it has been caused by dxgkrnl.sys, atikmpag.sys and dxgmms1.sys . It was these causing it before the reinstall as well.

Answer:BSOD when idle for a long period of time.

Quote:
"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps

Hi team,

In the last couple of weeks, my HD is on 100% very often (in the task manager). This seems to be happen randomly and it usually stops in about 5-15 minutes, but sometimes it doesn't stop at all and I need to restart my computer.
I couldn't identify when exactly it happens and it looks random. When it happens the computer becomes very very slow and unresponsive and when it stops everything goes back to normal. Of course I tried to close all running apps when it happens to see if it helps, but it's no use.

It looks like some kind of malware or something else is doing something in the background.

One thing to check on your monitor is whether it has it's own power save option. I have heard about that option but never seen it.

I have received multiple BSOD errors on my PC over a prolonged period of time and am hoping someone can finally help to resolve these.

They occur regularly on my PC and vary from once a day to 5-10 times a day.

If someone can have a look at the attached debug file which I have pulled off to advise and offer any assistance that would be great.

I don't work here but I would personally verify drivers from the manufacturers, as well as the graphics card. I just got done addressing a similar issue and it turned out to be a combination of hardware (i had a memory module go bad) and a driver didn't wanna update automatically.

We have had a bunch of computers coming in and our customers have the same complaint, only works online for a short period of time.

I've been unable to find a common thread between the computers, except for windows XP.

A wipe and reload fixes it, and a new nic fixes it.

Different brands have had the problem, different antivirus programs on the computer, different computer makes, laptops.

Running Windows Embedded Standard 2009.
Motherboard: Giada HM77T-i3

When booting into Safe mode, the system will get stuck on the classpnp.sys. Anyway to find out what exactly is causing the system to get stuck on classpnp.sys?

This problem occurs with MSATA, SSD and standard HDs. This problem occurs on more than one system.

The longer the system runs for, the longer the boot time gets. If I re-image the drive, the boot time goes back to 30 seconds. If I let it run for 2-3 weeks, then the boot time starts getting longer. It starts at 2 minutes and then climbs up to 60 minutes the longer the system runs for.

I tried the following:
Loading AV software and scan.
chkdsk /f
Loaded Regcure Pro
Updated the BIOS
Updated Video card drivers.

Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:System gets stuck for long period on the classpnp.sys file.

John, welcome to the TSG Forums

You posted this in the XP Forum. You are running XP ? The reason that I ask is that I have seen this problem often with W7 but very seldom with XP, so I am just wondering if you posted in the right Forum.

The classpnp.sys file is the Windows SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) system file and is a critical part of the Windows boot process. Typically when problems are experienced with this file they are often associated with devices such as CD/DVD drive, Hard Drive or other SCSI hardware.

It is common for problems to occur after installing new hardware or software, specifically software that may access the CD/DVD drive. Think back to a time when you did not have this problem and try to recall what hardware or software you have installed subsequent to that time.

Hello everyone.

I know there are tons of threads like this, but nothing seem to work for me, plus, my situation is a little different:
I got this laptop after it lay unused for about a year, and all the posts I saw were talking about a laptop that suddenly stopped working.

Basically it won't turn on. Nothing at all happens when I push the power button (no fan/HDD activity/flashing of lights - Nothing). The power cable+socket seems to be working because when I initially plugged it in the "charging battery" light went on, and stayed on for a few hours, I assume while the battery charged. Now it won't turn on when I unplug-plug the power cable, but if the power cable is plugged in, and I push power while holding Enter, it does flash for a moment.

Things I tried:
1. Removing power+battery, holding power button for 60 seconds.
2. Reseating RAM, HDD, CD-ROM.
3. Trying to power up without HDD.
4. Disassembling the laptop with the help of a service manual and taking out and plugging in the screen+keyboard+touchpad connectors, removing the heatsink to verify that the CPU is firmly in place and putting it back.

There seems to be a battery called "Reserve battery" - what is it for? Maybe it went flat?

Anyone has any idea what I can try next?
Thanks!
 

Answer:Dell D505 does not power up (after long unused period)

The reserve battery is probably run down. See this link:

Hey everyone,

I had quite the confusing issue on my hands. I believe it to be hardware related but i could be wrong. I had recently built a system and installed Windows 7 on it. Everything appeared to work flawlessly. The only issue is if the computer is off for an extended period of time (thinking around 4+ hours) it will reboot itself before it can enter the login screen (although it does make it to the loading screen).

After a lot of troubleshooting, i realized that simply flipping the switch on and off on the back of the power supply will allow it to boot into windows fine. Also, using the repair utility on windows will let me boot in fine too (without reseting the power supply manually i believe).

I thought it may have been a power supply issue but i have replaced it with a higher wattage, high end one and the issue still occurs. The Ram is checking out OK too.

The only thing i can think of is that there is an issue with the motherboard. I assume when the system is off the motherboard still has power since the keyboard light remains on. It seems i need to kill the power to the board completely.

Or maybe this is a Windows 7 issue since its relatively new?

The fact that this only occurs if the system is off for 4+ hours really puzzles me. Besides this one error the system runs beautifully.

I am really at a loss here. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have an issue with the sleep function. The computer does not awake from sleep. When I try to do it, it behaves as if it was waking, but it never ends and there is only a black screen; the mouse and keyboard are inoperative. The only thing possible to do is a hard reboot. When it boots, it shows a notice with a minute report (in the zip file) usually saying there was a blue screen, but I NEVER see any blue screen at all.

I know the power configuration is OK because I have always used the same scheme. A powercfg ?energy report shows several errors and warnings. They refer to USB and PCI (vendor 1002=ATI motherboard), but I don?t know how to repair them.

I downloaded the drivers downloader from Rrecipester.org and downloaded and installed the drivers. They are all Broadcom Corporation signed, the brand of my USB Bluetoth attachment. I rebooted after installing, as recommended. Run powercfg ?energy again and got the same report issues (in the zip file). I don?t think the processor utilization warnings to be very important because they are low and sporadic picks. It has been like this for some time now, so I don?t have a restore point. Can someone help and tell me what I can do so solve this issue, please?

Quite confident it's a driver issue, it will be very difficult to troubleshoot from the one included dump file though as it's incomplete and inconclusive.

I can run a backup (selected files + image), but only if I initiate it myself. When I set it to run on a schedule, it fails with a message saying "Your backup did not complete successfully"; and further checking shows that the error was "access denied". I am backing up my laptop to an external E-SATA 1TB hard drive. Plenty of space on the target, and like I say, if I initiate it manually ("Run Backup Now") it runs fine.

Any ideas?

Hello all,

I have a laptop Acer 5739 G and I reinstalled my Windows 7 x64 about 3 weeks ago and since then I've had this error occur several times. I usually leave my computer in sleep mode overnight, but lately when I start it again it gives me the black screen of "windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" where I have to select "star windows normally".

The last time it happened was this morning. I put my laptop to sleep at 0:30 am and turned it on this morning at 8:03 when I saw the "unexpected shutdown" screen.

Then after looking through Event Viewer I found an error message about an error that has occurred at 6:21 am while it was sleeping. Here's the message:

I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is t... Read more

Hi, I have just purchased a X1 Carbon and the very first time I left it in the sleep state, next time I came back it was completely off. So I thought it had hibernated. However it would not power up (with our without AC). So I called lenovo and they told me about the battery reset button which I pressed for 10 sec and it then worked. Now I realize everytime I left the computer in sleep and it goes for a longer period then it shuts down and I am forced to use to 10 sec reset to get it back up. Sometimes it happens after 5 min of sleep, sometimes it happens after 1-2h.I already disabled the rapid start configuration from the BIOS and uninstalled the Intel drivers but still my computer does not stay in sleep for longer and it does not transition from sleep to hibernation properly I think. i am using the "Power Source Optimized" plan with 5% set for critial and action set to Hibernate. Can anyone help please? I am almost returning this unit cause I hate powering the computer off and on everytime. I want just to close the lid and be done with it. Next time I open the lid, eventually hit the power button and it should figure out what to do. This is a really crappy problem for $1500 machine! I rather buy an Apple instead... it is expensive but it works out of the box!

Answer:X1C will not boot after going to sleep for a longer period

Hi, this is my first time posting here in this forum because I am in desperate need of help on my computer. My computer gets at least ONCE BSOD every time I turn it on after a long period of shutdown. It also sometimes randomly just shuts off or give me additional BSODs. It has got to the point that I can't even load to windows recently, which lead me to reformat my computer. I know the drivers here are not the latest ones, I am trying to use only the drivers from the CDs that came with the hardwares because the last time I used all the latest ones it still caused BSODs. I am not sure what other information I need to post up. Please help with any advices possible, very much appreciated.

Anyway, this is a brand new APU build. I've only had the computer for a few days now, anytime I try and play Dayz for example after a good amount of time it will just BSOD on me, after a restart and lets say you try and launch the game again, it will BSOD during the loading process. If you try and run lets say two games at once, it'll BSOD after a little while. I have a strong feeling it's a heat issue with the stock heatsink, and I have a 212 evo coming Monday, so I would hope that would be the cause but to make sure I rather ask some other people.
I know for a fact this stock heatsink isn't able to cool this chip, because you can check Core Temp, or Speecy, and the chip is at around 70C+ which of course you panic and kind of lay off of it for a little bit, a few days ago I actually believe it hit 93C before I shut the computer down. That's way too hot, so I do believe the majority of these BSOD are heat related, but it could be heat and driver related possibly as well?

Anyway here are my computer specifications as well...
Motherboard: GA-F2A85XM-D3H
Memory: 8GB (2x4GB) CORSAIR Vengeance 1600Mhz
CPU: AMD A8-6500 GFX Radeon 8570D
Hard drive: 320GB Seagate 7200RPM
PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty 550W

Currently chip temp with just the internet browser open is literally 68C, I think these BSOD are heat related...What do you think? I am pretty certain, lol

I have included the ZIP of the dump files and such, as stated per sticky thread.

Answer:BSOD while playing any game for long/short period, STOP 0xA0000001

The dumps were caused by your APU graphics driver:

I'm having this problem since a long time , googled so many times, still no solution. Thanks in advance if u help me with one ....

Scheduled Task fails to run in Win 7/Vista even in Win XP after installing any Norton Products (I've tried NAV 2010, NIS 2010, Norton 360 v3, v3.5, NIS 2011 all with same results)

No error code in Last Run results tab in 'Task Scheduler' .... uninstalling Norton products and restoring the system before Norton was installed solves the problem ....

Anyone ever came across this issue ????

Answer:Scheduled Tasks fails to run after installing Norton Products ....

I haven't come across that exact problem before, but I can't say I am surprised. Norton has a history of causing havoc on Windows Vista and Seven systems.

I installed 10 on three machines and one has a mind of it's own when it comes to sleeping.  No matter how I set the power settings or screen savers if I get up and walk away from the machine it has gone into sleep mode when I come back.    In some respects it could be a useful thing, but since I'm not choosing for this to happen, it's a problem.

Answer:Windows 10 PC Going To Sleep After Short Period Of Inactivity

I installed 10 on three machines and one has a mind of it's own when it comes to sleeping.  No matter how I set the power settings or screen savers if I get up and walk away from the machine it has gone into sleep mode when I come back.    In some respects it could be a useful thing, but since I'm not choosing for this to happen, it's a problem.
I've discovered this issue predates Windows 10 and some online posters noticed something I have been able to verify in my situation.  It you restart, boot up, or wake from sleep with the power button the system doesn't go to sleep after a brief period of idling.  If you wake it from sleep with keyboard or mouse it does go to sleep.  I think better stated would be, it returns to sleep.  This discovery explains why at times I have thought the issue had somehow been resolved. Using the power button to wake up a system is an OK work around, but not ideal.

Hello, I have an issue that ha happened twice where when I put my pc in sleep mode for an extended period, both time it's been overnight so ~8 hours I come back to find the pc running and at my log-on screen. When i log-in a window comes up saying the pc recovered from a blue screen crash.

Can someone tell me where to go to capture details of the crash's so i can post that here and possible find the root cause? Would it be in the event log? Im a novice at this so thanks in advance!

Running windows 7 home premium 64 bit

Answer:PC crashes when in sleep mode for extended period

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.

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

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.
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 drop down box (the 256kb varies).
*Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
*OK.
Reboot if changes have been made.

Hello there

1 have 2 scheduled tasks on my WES7 Thin Clients:

1) On Lock: Execute the following batch:

Code:
TASKKILL /F /IM "pnamain.exe"
TASKKILL /F /IM "Receiver.exe
TASKKILL /F /IM "WFICA32.EXE"
This kills the open Citrix session and shuts down all citrix programs.

2) On Unlock: Reconnect the Citrix Session and open all programs via this batch:


Code:
start "" "C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\pnamain.exe" /connect
start "" "C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\Receiver\Receiver.exe"
If i execute the 2 batch-files manually, everything works perfect. If they are run via the scheduled tasks, the locking works perfectly, but the unlocking behaves as following:

pnamain.exe is started
Receiver.exe is NOT started
EDIT: The task is marked as 'finished without problems'
I tried to execute this task with different settings... same problem all the time The Task is executed with the Admin-Account, so this should not be the problem.
Who might have a helping idea?
Thanks a lot and cheers from Switzerland,
Simon

Hi and welcome to Seven Forums!

You could ask Citrix support, maybe Receiver can't be run from Scheduled Tasks.

Don't know if this is the best place for this question. Please direct me if in error.

Just wondering what happens when a hard drive is sleeping when a scheduled event is to take place. For example, a backup or a defrag?

If it is asleep, perhaps it can be woken up. Don't know. Just wondering what the issues are.

Answer:Sleep mode and scheduled events.

Usually an event will "wake up" your system. Thats my experience anyway.

Hi,
I'm trying to migrate a robocopy based backup from XP (where it does work) to Windows 7.  The backup job simply copies a directory on the local PC to a network drive on the file server using a batch file which contains the following:
robocopy "C:\projects" "N:\backup" /e /s /r:1 /w:1 /log+:backuplog.txt
The user account it is running under has full access to the network drive (N:).  When I run the batch file directly from the command line it works perfectly.  It also used to work without issue on a Windows XP machine.  UAC is disabled.
Whenever the task runs it fails with the error code 0x10.
Thanks

Answer:Robocopy fails as scheduled task in Windows 7 with error code 0x10

 
0x10=ERROR_BAD_ENVIRONMENT

I would reciommend using UNC paths (\\server\share\folder\) instead of mapped drives and specifying full paths in quotes whenever possible (not backuplog.txt, but "c:\logs\backuplog.txt"MCP/MCSA/MCTS/MCITP

I've always wondered. Does Vista "wake itself up" from Sleep Mode in order to perform its middle-of-the-night scheduled tasks, like Defrag--or does it sleep through them (along with me)?

Will scheduled events run while in sleep mode?I use the native scheduler for a script file and the ACRONIS TRUE IMAGE scheduler for a image backup.Also will the computer go back to sleep when its been idle for a preset time?

Answer:Does XP Sleep mode impact scheduled events?

I think that for most scheduled events, the computer has to come out of sleep mode. You can set it to go into sleep mode after a preset time in Control Panel/Power Options.

Hi,
Almost every morning for the last month or so I will discover my computer is running (monitor off, but computer not in sleep mode as it should be). To figure out what was waking it, I went to cmd prompt and used the command "powercfg -waketimers":






C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg -waketimers
Timer set by [SERVICE] \Device\HarddiskVolume1\Windows\System32\svchost.exe (Sys
temEventsBroker) expires at 4:01:43 AM on 2/23/2014.
Reason: Windows will execute 'NT TASK\Microsoft\Windows\TaskScheduler\Regular
Maintenance' scheduled task that requested waking the computer.



I also tried "powercfg -lastwake":






C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg -lastwake
Wake History Count - 1
Wake History [0]
Wake Source Count - 1
Wake Source [0]
Type: Wake Timer
Owner: [SERVICE] \Device\HarddiskVolume1\Windows\System32\svchost.exe (Syste

Owner Supplied Reason: Windows will execute 'NT TASK\Microsoft\Windows\TaskS
cheduler\Regular Maintenance' scheduled task that requested waking the computer.




So it appears that "Regular Maintenance" is waking my computer. But why isn't it returning to sleep? It used to.

I then went to Power Options > Edit Plan Settings. These settings are still correct (Put the computer to sleep: 30 minutes).

Next I checked the Task Scheduler. Under "Active Tasks" I found "Regular Maintenance".
