BSOD after I turn Computer NEW Computer on, or whilst sleeping

Question: BSOD after I turn Computer NEW Computer on, or whilst sleeping

New computer keeps blue screening during or after my computer goes to sleep. Was told to upload this, and also it says part of the reason is in the Minidump folder or the Temp folder.

Preferred Solution: BSOD after I turn Computer NEW Computer on, or whilst sleeping

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi TheRealDanny.

The crash dump (a Stop 0x3B one) is not saying anything in detail about the probable cause of the BSOD).

Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.
If it does not show any error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers. Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

I was playing Burnout when the computer crashed and the blue screen error came up. Since then when I turn the computer on all the fans turn on, HDD activity light flashes but nothing appears on the monitor.I can't boot in to safe-mode or enter the bios settings. I've tried using the 8800gt and the onboard gfx (950 gma) but nothing appears. I read that taking the ram out and then turning it on the mobo should beep..but it didn't however it did beep when I didn't plug the cable in to the 8800gt.

I have a Asrock 1333-D667 mobo
Windows 7 RC
2gb Ram
8800gt 512mb
E2180 @2.00GHz
 

Answer:Computer had a bsod whilst playing a game..now computer won't boot.

No beep without ram installed does not look good. Here is some basic troubleshooting you can do.

1 Open the case and pull the pw connectors from ALL drives; both hd and optical.
2 Remove all add-in cards except the video card
3 Disconnect any usb type device; ie hub, printer, scanner, etc.
4 Clear cmos with the clear jumper for a min of 20~30seconds. Replace jumper to keep position.
5 Now attempt a pw ON of the system and see if it will post.

If it does post in the above config, then shutdown and add devices one at a time until you find the problem. If it does not post, then start replacing parts with known good units.

FWIW I would start with the pw supply as the first part replaced.

I'm a new T410/Windows 7 Professional 64-bit owner and I have a quick question regarding the USB ports. I know one is always 'on' (with the yellow insert on the right); but the other three seem to be providing power to my external Western Digital Essential portable hard drive even when the computer is off or in sleep mode. The HD is portable, so it's powered by the USB only.  The HD light continually flashes even when the computer is in standby or powered off completely.  When the computer is off or in standby, the same three USBs do NOT provide power to my iPod Touch 2G however. The same HD drive powers off immediately with my old T60 running XP-Pro. I checked the T410 BIOS and I couldn't find a setting for this and all of the USB device manager settings indicate that the computer is 'free to shut down the usb port to save power'. Also, the usb selective setting is enabled in the power manager. There must be a minimum amt of power always available on these three ports that are strong enough to power the drive, but not the iPod...  How can I disable the power on the 3 USB ports? Any ideas? Thank you in advance..

Hello all,
Recently, I discover my computer keeps shutting down when I am pretty sure I kept it on sleep, so I turned it on to find out that "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown". It does not happen everytime, but it happens quite often, and it is really annoying because I keep losing my work! I have not found any solution yet, so I'm hoping someone here can help me

Here is the problem:

Hi everyone,

Newb here. Always been a frequent lurker of these forums but until now I've decided to make an account due to this problem.

I put my laptop into sleep mode frequently when I'm not using it, but when I come back to use it again, I'll see it isn't even powered anymore. Puzzled, I'll then go to power it on, where the internal speaker will screech like a banshee and when I log in I'll receive "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" (If you would like the problem details just go ahead and tell me because I'd be glad to post them!)

Now the BSOD's don't appear in any certain pattern, just only when it is in sleep mode. Over the course of 5 months first starting in September, I've had 8 crashes including this one.

The other dump files seem to be quite old, so I'm just going to continue with the latest dump file. As I suspected, you seem to have a Stop 0x9F, which is related to Power IRPs becoming essentially stuck for long periods of time during power transitions.

Hi everyone,

I few months ago I bought myself a new PC running Vista Home Premium 64-bit and havn't had any issues with it, until now.

Starting from two days ago, my PC has been getting the BSOD and shutting itself down everytime I leave it idle for a few hours (when I go bed and again when I go to work). It has not yet happened when I've been using it (that is probably just coincidence), so I haven't been able to see what the BSOD says.

I'd also like to point out that I didn't make any changes to my system that could have caused the error, it just came out of the blue... so to speak.

In the "Problem Reports and Solutions" window from the Control Panel, it gives the following info:

Hi guys

I've started getting random BSOD's on my computer and I'm trying to work out what's triggering them.

They normally happen after a few hours, but I'll get the occasional one within half an hour of the previous one happening.

If you need any further information please let me know

Thanks

Answer:BSOD Whilst using computer in various situations

It appears that the ATI display driver is causing the issue there.
Download the latest WHQL of the display driver from this link : Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7 and save it on your desktop.
Download AMD Catalyst Un-install Utility and save it on desktop, too.
Disconnect internet.
Run AMD Catalyst Un-install Utility to uninstall the display driver totally.
Restart the computer.
Install the latest WHQL display driver already downloaded.
Restart and connect back to internet.

Hello guys,

I got a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (0x09f) with first parameter 0x03 ( A device object has been blocking an IRP for too long a time.) while my computer was in sleep mode.

Some weeks ago I used to get 0x03B errors but they were fixed with updating a bad NVIDIA driver. Back then I checked the memory with the built in test (in win 7) with the most thorough setting and no problems were found.

I am attaching the minidump for the 0x09f from last night. Would very much appreciate some help

P.S. BlueScreenView can only tell me hat the problem was in ntoskrnl which doesn't help a lot.

Answer:BSOD when leaving the computer idle while sleeping

Recommendations:The problem you describe may be a known problem with the Crucial M4.


Quote:




M4 customers,



We are aware of an issue that is currently affecting a small number of users whereby their m4 causes their system to require a restart. This issue occurs after approximately 5,000 hours of actual ?on time? use. Following the initial reboot, the system then requires subsequent restarts after each additional hour of use. However, the data on the SSD is unaffected and will not be lost due to this condition.



Through our investigation, we have determined the root cause of the problem and will be releasing a firmware update that rectifies the situation. We are currently running through our validation and compatibility process. Once this process is complete, the firmware will be made available to our customers. Although we understand the desire of some people to start using unreleased firmware now, we want to ensure that our solution works across multiple chipsets, systems, and operating systems before publishing the release code. We are currently targeting the week of January 16th, 2012 to publicly release the new firmware update.

We understand the impact that this is having on some users right now and apologize for this inconvenience. We appreciate your continued support, feedback, and patience as we finalize code and resolve this issue.

Hi, thanks for looking into my situation.

I did a clean install of windows 7 on my 1+ year old desktop as it had began running slow. The process of the clean install was smooth and I had shut down / restarted the computer a number of time since (within the day).

When I put the computer to sleep (using a keyboard shortcut on my keyboard), the screen powered down and shortly after, the lights (both power and CPU) on my tower went off too. A couple of minutes after that, I heard a single beep from the tower and the power & CPU lights came on for a few seconds, before the whole computer shut down. I immediately turned the PC on again and was prompted to start in safe mode. I opted to start windows in normal mode anyway.

After the OS loaded, I found out I had a BSOD from the error report. I'm attaching my zipped DM log file in this message which I have no idea on how to decipher. Appreciate the assistance. Cheers!

Hi guys,

I was just browsing the web when suddenly, my computer went into BSOD (this is not the first time). I would like to know if I could fix it and if so, what steps should I follow.

I have previously tried memory scans, disk scans (chkdsk) and virus scans, these all came back negative and said everything is working normally.

Attatched are the log files of all my previous BSODs.

Answer:BSOD Problem while computer was sleeping/updating windows

Unfortunately all the DMP's in the upload are from October, 2011. Please make sure your control panel is configured correctly

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:





Quote:
* 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:





Quote:
* 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.

I have a brand new W510 (2 weeks old).  Ever since using it I have found that intermittently when I close the lid (and put the computer into sleep mode), when I open the lid, it restarts the machine and all opened files are closed.   The last time it did this the laptop would not restart with 'unidentified operating system' errors etc.  When I did a hard reboot, all was fine. I'm worried this is going to continue and cause damage to the machine. Any help much appreciated.

Answer:W510 shuts down whilst sleeping

Does it happen immediatley after closing the lid? Or does it crash right as you open the lid? In other words, is it sleeping peacefully until this happens or does it happen right after it tries to go to sleep?

the "blue screen of death" keeps coming up on my laptop and i don't know what to do! the first time i just restarted it and then it came up again, so i turned it off and waited awhile to come back on it. then when i came back i went into the safe mode to figure it out, and it still didn't work. there are three different types of safe modes i can choose from, and i did all three but the blue screen still came up. i then just went on it normally again and the screen just keeps appearing!! all of this was over about a 3-day period. what should i do?? i guess take it somewhere...?

Answer:BSoD-computer won't turn on!!

If your computer is not able to get into safe mode it's a good indication of a serious issue, often a software corruption or other hardware issue. If any new hardware has been added try removing it as mentioned in the below document, otherwise I'd suggest erasing the hard disk drive and starting over.http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000750.htm

Answer:BSOD when I turn my computer off

Hello and welcome stathis now mate just as it says on the screen have you installed any new hardware or software recently? if it is hardware then check to see if it is installed (seated if a plug in) firmly. If it is software then what?

Now two things you have to do is give us some system specs mate as it is like working in the dark not knowing what is in the machine http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/180324-system-info-see-your-system-specs.html

and also download the dump files please they can get us to the seat of the problem - generally speaking however it does look like a driver problem from what I have researched.

Hi julianiscool.

One of your crash dumps reports some malfunction of Avast. Uninstall Avast using Avast Uninstall Utility. At least as a test. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Though I am in doubt that the issue is really caused by Avast (sometimes it does), it is better to remove it as it is flagged.

Also test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Answer:BSOD Computer shuts downs at turn on again

Hi, nta, and welcome to the the forum. I looked at your three most recent dumps. All three are bugcheck 3B and all blame atikmdag.sys, your video driver. However it is possible that something else is conflicting with your video driver. I suggest you eliminate these possibilities first before we look at your video card.

I recommend that you uninstall Daemon Tools. It uses a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads. Select uninstall; do NOT select reinstall.

Here is a free alternative CD virtualization program that does not use the sptd.sys driver.
Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) Overview

Next, I suggest that you uninstall Norton. Norton is a known cause of BSOD's on some Win 7 systems. Use this removal tool: Tool. Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials in its place while you are troubleshooting.

Follow these suggests, reboot and let's see if your system is more stable. Post back and let us know. If you get anther BSOD, upload it and we will go from there.

While I'm writing this, I am praying to god my computer doesn't crash.

I'll begin from the start (computer specs will be posted at the bottom of the post).

I bought this computer just over three years ago, it has been running fine up until yesterday. I was playing StarCraft II with a friend, we were on voice chat on Skype and all of a sudden all of my screen locked up and became really really laggy, my sound went like a sort of buzzing noise and I could hear my friend talking in the background - but his voice was lagged aswell, one word per minute kinda lag. My screen was frozen, my sound was buzzing (no sound coming from the computer, just out of my headset).

I restarted my computer, and it kept doing it, I would load up the game and it would freeze, my computer would lock up and my sound would start making that weird noise again.

I decided to leave it alone for the night, switched it off and went to bed. I woke up this morning to give it another go, about 2 minutes into loading my computer up, the graphics freeze up, turn off and then it comes back on with a message in the status bar down the bottom saying "Nvidia drivers have recovered from an unexpected error" or something along those lines.

So I thought there must be something wrong inside the case, I took it apart this morning and I cleaned it out completely, not one speck of dust inside - it looks brand new. I took the RAM out and placed it back in just to make sure it wasn't that. I ... Read more

It is very annoying as my computer can not successfully be in sleep for or hibernation mode for long periods of time. Once I turn it on, it either loads into windows (usually the case), then it shortly freezes and shows the following error message.

Once in a while it would go straight to the error message before it even logs into windows.
I don't know what it is.
For a period of time, I thought it had to do with my wireless card because I manually upgraded it myself but in truth, the same thing happened (once in a blue moon) with my original wireless card as well. This was even right after I bought the computer.
It used to be that it happened once in a while, but now it is every single time. Now, I do not remember the last time it was in sleep mode for a good period of time and it successfully loaded everything up correctly.
Thank you in advance.

I have a laptop plugged into an external monitor that I never shut off. At night I leave it around midnight and the next time I touch it is around 6 PM, at which point I'd expect it to be off. I cant be 100% sure its not, since I usually swipe move the mouse before I turn the monitor on (so it could be that turns it on) but since there's no real time delay between my moving the mouse and turning the monitor on, and given that certain lights are on on the computer, I think it never turns off / sleeps in the first place. How do I fix this? I've looked at my settings in the power options of control panel they seem fine. My computer's plugged into power and the settings for that are dim display in 5 mins, turn off display in 10, put computer to sleep in 30.

Btw I'm using Win 7.

Please advise!

I'm not sure if this is technically a help forum or not, but here we go.

As the title suggests, my computer is having a problem sleeping. Not that it won't do it, it just doesn't do it consistently for some reason.

At first I thought it wasn't wanting to wake up properly. But the blinking activity light showed that it was a problem with going to sleep properly not snapping out of it. The HDD light starts blinking a second or two before the computer "turns off" and stays blinking until the computer is turned back on. Everytime the light stays blinking, the computer wakes without a hitch.

The times it doesn't wake up are when the light stops blinking when it turns off. It will blink a few times while still running as if it's going to do it. But instead of continuing to blink, it stop when the computer stops.

I'll post my system specs or whatever else you guys want if it turns out to not be an easy fix. And yes, I keep all my drivers current.


Thanks.

Answer:Computer Sleeping Problem

System make and model please (if it's a custom system, then the make and model of the motherboard).

The most common reasons for this are (in this order):
1. Corrupted video drivers
2. Corrupted storage drivers

So, download fresh copies of the latest video and storage drivers from the video and storage controller manufacturer's website.

Uninstall the current video and storage/chipset drivers through Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program.

Then install the freshly downloaded driver packages and see if that fixes things. If not, post back and we'll do some troubleshooting.

One of my W8.1 computers is behaving like a typical 3-year old...... it does not want to go to bed.

If I click on "Sleep", the computer will go into Sleep-mode but within a few minutes it wakes itself up. And like a 3-year old it needs to be put to bed several times before it stays asleep.

Checking Task Manager just prior to Sleep shows CPU and Disk activity at Zero or 1%.

If anyone has solved this annoying behaviour I would appreciate to learn the solution.

Are you sitting in front of it when it wakes up? Do you live with anyone else or have pets? If the mouse and keyboard are configured to wake the computer, then any movement or activity on either will wake the computer.

I like to use my computer as an entertainment center (which just means late night Netflix/Toonami streaming). I have my computer go to sleep after 3 hours of inactivity so my TV can turn off which makes sure nothing has been on ALL night. But, this only works sometimes. My computer is sometimes unresponsive when I try to take it out of sleep. When I try to wake it, the computer starts up but doesn't display anything. I have tried unplugging the HDMI but that causes the computer to blue screen. I know that my GPU is the reason why I can't use the "ultra-fast" startup option but that can be easily fixed (I am just to lazy/busy to email Nvidia). I have noticed this waking problem can be triggered by initially waking my computer then letting it go back to sleep and when I press the "pc power" button on my Logitech wireless keyboard(which puts my computer to sleep and not off/on) but I have no idea as to what that means. Any help? Thanks in advance.

A while back, my computer would go to sleep, and blue screen during that process somehow. I fixed the issue simply by preventing the computer from sleeping. The computer is super stable otherwise. (It blue screened on me once when I did a "windows experience index" but since that blue screen, it hasn't happened again.)
 
Anyway, lately I've installed a few devices, and fixed some things up on my computer. I've gotten a new video card, a new heat sink, a new power supply, I've run Memtest86+ cleanly, and checked my HDD's for errors, and everything is clean. So I decided to try to allow the computer to sleep once again to see if these blue screens would come back.
 
Well, now when I try to put the computer to sleep, (or just let it go to sleep on it's own) it appears that the computer "sleeps" for only about 1 second before it comes back on with the login to your user screen. So essentially it's not sleeping at all. It's really just logging out, or something.
 
Any ideas out there for what steps I can take to resolve this issue?
 
Thanks so much!

There's not really a lot a hacker can do though the LAN would stay active. Your best off shutting down as it can depend on the exploit used.

When my computer goes to sleep after signing off & I try to come back on line, it will not produce a screen. The curser sometimes shows but the screen remains dark.

Hello,
First I want to apologize if some unfinished thread was posted - the browser suddenly disappeared and when opened all was gone.
For about 3 years my second computer is deactivated because when I started some (any) installed programs, for a moment started and then stopped with a pop-up notice about a corrupt exe file. Reinstalled the programs and again that pop-up. The system installed is xp pro, I think it was infected by some virus or malware.
Now I want to reactivate it (hope the main-board battery still alive), to wipe clean the disks, re-partition and reformat them, and if possible to install from the present computer win 7 pro using a Macrium image or backup.
I have only the xp pro installation disk, do not have the win 7 pro installation disk.
I guess I'll have to use some tools to startup the computer and clean the disks as said above, the only limitation I want, to avoid installing (one time) any tools on the present computer.
Is it possible ?
I will be glad and appreciate to have your guidance on this issue.
Thanks

Hey, folks. I've posted a couple other times more or less on the same subject here, but this time it's a new problem and so I need a new solution.

My computer has been randomly 'falling asleep' in a manner of speaking; I'll be doing something, and it'll just decide to go to sleep. Everything for all intensive purposes is shut down, but the computer itself is still on. Keyboard interface doesn't change at all, any sort of audio input that may have been going on stops, etc. The only thing that seems to work at all is the little mini-view on my tower.

For reference, I've got an XPS 420, running Vista SP2 Home.

I first experienced the problem some time after I installed Vista, and I eventually replaced my power supply, which fixed it- until now. I had just booted up Dungeons and Dragons Online and was in the character creation screen when it happened again.

So, anybody have an idea of what I might do to figure this out?

Is it possible to run a game while the laptop or computer is sleeping (or some low powered state where the sound of the machine is very quiet) ?

No, it won't overheat, I have a thermapad.
 

Answer:Run a game while computer is sleeping

Most likely, you can run the game in sleep mode, but it might have some random errors while coming out of sleep. Sometimes games corrupt shaders, textures, or other things when coming out of sleep, but for the most part I think it will work. You're just going to have to try it on games yourself.

My PC has been set to "sleep" forever with the spacebar waking it. Now, in the past week, it turns itself off instead of sleeping, and will not wake with the spacebar. Pressing the power button turns on the computer, but Windows does not load, nor does the monitor come on. When I turn the power strip off and on, then the computer comes on, but in the Safe Mode screen. I have used the diagnostics, cleaned up things, defragged and done anything else I could thing of, but nothing changes. My power settings are still for sleeping and the keyboard for waking, but the computer, or Windows, is not listening. What else can I do?

My computer bluescreens when I wake it via the mouse after sleeping overnight. It never does this during the day.

I know what's causing this...it's too many simultaneous or near simultaneous scheduled operations (especially on weekends which is the default for many of them). I need to change the default scheduling to avoid conflicts but it seems to me this is one glaring oversight by MS. Even a lowly sprinkler system controller knows that sprinklers set to come on at the same time have to be "stacked" to avoid problems!!! Come on MS!

Also, Vista has a fairly sophisticated task scheduler that can even send e-mails at specific dates/times automatically yet we can't properly schedule the updates and other routine tasks to avoid conflicts?

One of the reasons I went to Vista so soon is because with older windows, when I turned on my computer to start work I often spent up to an hour and several re-starts performing all the updates and maintenance. Vista, together with a sleep mode that actually works to save power, promised more work time and less time fixing things..or so I thought.

OK, I'll stop ranting.
Anyhow, here are the programs that can be scheduled and my comments. I have the trial Live Onecare.

Defrag - good idea.

Update - a good idea but every time I have done this manually it's asked to re-start the computer. That might be OK but it could also create problems. I have noticed if you turn off auto update Live OneCare complains ... Read more

Hi, I was hoping to ask for some help. When my desktop wakes from sleeping, it always takes a minute or so to connect to the internet. It starts up with a red x over the Internet Access icon, then it goes to the yellow caution symbol and then it finally connects. It's really annoying because you have to just sit there and wait for it to connect every time it starts up after sleeping. My laptop is connected via Ethernet cable to the same router and modem and it's instantly connected when it wakes so I don't think it's a hardware issue with the router/modem. Any ideas as to what could be the problem? Thanks a bunch for any help.

Hello everyone

Everytime I try to put my computer into sleep/hibernate mode it immediately wakes up. I googled it and someone suggested to disable the option to allow the mouse/keyboard to wake computer.
I did that, as well as disabling Windows update. But I still have the problem.
Not only that problem though. When the computer sometimes does sleep, it won't wake up. The only way it wakes up is if I turn off the power from the back.
Then the computer will power on and say "windows resuming"

Is there anyway to fix this? I've been trying to use the sleep/hibernate function more as of late but it's become rather annoying cause it's not properly working.

I have tried all the options I saw online, none of which works... help.

I have a very simple 2-computer wired LAN through a Netgear router. The computers are mine and my secretary's. While there are shared folders on both computers, the only crucial one is that my secretary has to be able to access one folder with data files on my computer via the LAN (it's got the shared address book and appointment calendar). Both computers were set to, if unattended, have the screen require a password for access after a time and, thereafter, the monitor would go blank and the computer sleep.

Until last week, her PC was a Win 7 Home Premium and mine Vista Ultimate. Then mine was replaced by a new Win 7 Home Premium box. While both computers are awake, all works fine -- but when I leave the office and my computer goes to sleep, her ability to access the shared folder is gone. It returns when I come back, shake the mouse, and enter my password. This is not something that is functional for my office.

(BTW, when I plug my old computer in as a 3rd PC in the LAN, its shared files can, as always, be accessed no matter how long since it went to sleep.)

My power settings are the same as in the Vista box: 20 minutes to turn off the display, an hour to sleep, require password on wakeup..

I have tried all the Wake-On-Lan settings for the adapters on both Win 7 computers without success. What should I try now? This should not be so hard to fix, one would think.

Hi all,

Recently i have been having trouble getting my Dell Studio 1747 laptop to hibernate or sleep. When i go to start and hit either sleep or hibernate, the screen shuts off but the computer never fully goes off. The fans continue to run and the usb power lights are still on. It will stay like this for hours. I have let it go all night before and the only way to shut it off is to hold the power button and do a force restart.

I have had this problem before. After a different discussion post we determined it was a power settings problem and after I set hard disks no not shut off the problem was solved. I had to reinstall my OS and when i put the same power settings back, the problem continued to happen. But i still think it may be a power setting. I have all of the current drivers installed and my computer is free of any viruses. Im running Windows 7 Pro x64 but it was also a problem with home edition. Any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Hey guys I'm a first time poster to these forums. I'm currently experiencing an issue with my computer. About 2 months ago I started getting random freezes and would have to do a hard restart on my computer to restart. To see if it was a virus or any kind of malware, I did a clean reformat of my hard drive and was still having issues. Eventually it started taking forever to boot up and load files and I got a SMART status bad message. So I wound up replacing my hard drive with a brand new one and did a clean install of Windows 7. That seemed to fix the slow boot and file load times but now I'm still getting freezes. However they are not random. They seem to happen when I don't touch the computer for awhile, whether I have a program such as something downloading in the background or not. They also seem to happen when I close the computer and put it to sleep and leave it like that for awhile. I try to wake it up and I only get a black screen, however my computer is on as I can hear the components.

The strange thing is as long as I am actively using the computer it doesn't seem to do this. I was on it for about 6 hours yesterday night and nothing happened and the computer was working fine. I did various hard disk scans even though I know it can't be the hard drive seeing as I just replaced it. it also isn't my graphics card as i uninstalled the driver and let my computer run for awhile with the standard VGA adapter and it still froze after me not tou...

Can you elaborate a bit on how you're set up? Are you sharing through a wireless USB on your PC?

You can try adjusting your USB Power Settings.

1) Go to Start Menu > Control Panel > Power Options
2) Find the Setting you are using (on a desktop PC it should be High Performance)
3) Click "Change Plan Settings"
4) Click "Change Advanced Power Settings"
5) Expand the USB section twice.

Otherwise, please elaborate on your internet/network setup. Thank you.

Particularly for Jacee, benjy206, and gregrocker. This was the problem that you helped me solve. I am afraid to hook up the keyboard that gave me the problem that put my computer to sleep after I hit that moon symbol on the board, so I opted to send it back. My packing slip did not include the shipping label necessary to do that, so I called Dell to get that shipping label. . After a lot of conversation, I was talked into going back to Tech and explain the problem to them again. This time, I got a more receptive guy who couldn't help me but did transfer me to an expert on the keyboards. I told him what happened when I hit that moon symbol and that it shut my computer down and I had to go about getting help from forums, etc. He told me that all I had to do was to push the power button and hold it in for thirty seconds and let it out then hit it again to turn the unit back on and my computer should "wake up". Now my friends, I am about to try that to see if it works and if it does I'm wondering why the Tech I talked to on the first day the problem occured couldn't take the 10 seconds to tell me that rather than trying to get $129 out of me for a service contract.

Keoweekid, welcome to the forum. It sounds like a glitch has occurred in the system.  I suggest going into the Control Panel / Power Options and changing all settings to Never.  Once this is done, reboot the computer.  Then, go back into the Control Panel and change the settings to what you want them to be.  This may solve your problem.  If this doesn't solve your problem, you may have to do a System Recovery. Also, if you are the only user of the computer, you can set it to boot with Auto logon.  This way you won't have to use a PW everytime you logon.  I have mine setup this way. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

10 Days ago I bought StarCraft II.

The installation was fine and didn't take too long, loading it up had no hiccups, although when I play Multi-player it's where it goes wrong.

Just to explain a bit more about what I did, I simply load the game like normal, a few minutes or so later, I log in.

I search for players to play against, and once it loads everything is fine.

I find myself frantically building and spreading my units, although about 5 minutes into EVERY game I've play my computers switches off.

It doesn't close the program and then Windows starts to shut down, it just switches off.

I then press the power button on the tower and the computer starts up again.

The game looks sooo good, I really want to play.

Here are a few details about my comp:

System Type: 32-Bit Operating System

Answer:My Computer Shuts Down Whilst Playing...

Hi

Is this the only game or application this is happening with?

Does a single standalone game work ok and its only online gaming?
Are you using wifi or ethernet for the internet?

What security applications have you installed?
Disable them to test they are not causing a crash, so disable Antivirus, firewall and antimalware etc.

Have you updated your graphics drivers to latest ones from nVidia?

In Event Viewer do you have any error messages at the exact time of the shutdown (maybe in either System or Application logs) that are related to the game? run the game and follow your steps to make your PC crash as then reboot and check the Event logs, then copy any relevent ones to a Notepad file and attach to a post, instructions to attach are HERE


I would be thinking temp issues in a random shutdown, but if normal gaming works ok in SCII then this doesnt seem more plausable.

Do you still need help? If you do, please follow the directions below.The first thing I will need you to do is to go to this link and follow the directions precisely. If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line. If you can't run any step, just jump to the next one. Please let me know how you are doing or have any questions. Initially, I will need the SuperAntiSpyware, MBAM and HJT logs. Please post any logs that you can generate.

And it never stops. Literally, I left it running for 24 hours. The first time this happened, I had to access files that were only on my computer for my homework, so I had to fix it somehow. Basically I held down the power button until it beeped really loudly and then the little circle thing would appear but after a couple seconds it would stop and I could use my computer. I found that I can't hit the power button or even shut my computer screen because this will happen again. I hate this problem, can someone help me fix it?

I have a HP XW8400, Win 7 x64 Ultimate, 8G Fully Buffered memory.
Per instructions of my "computer guy", I leave the computer on almost always. I was awaken at 4AM by the "alarm" on the computer, and a black screen with error codes 922, 923 and 927. See attached picture. Having experienced this error before (maybe a year ago) I shut the computer down, carefully cleaned the contacts on the video card, card reader and memory. I also removed the Hauppauge WinTV 1600 card, as I hadn't used that accessory in years.
Since reboot, the computer would run fine for about an hour or so, then it would freeze up, accepting no input from keyboard. A few seconds later mouse input would not be accepted, and then the BSOD with error code 0x000000F4. This procedure went on three or four times, but I was able to do some work in the meantime. My computer tech called back and said I should try a system restore. I did that, but now I am unable to boot at all. I tried several times, one time getting a BSOD - type screen, but the characters were unintelligible. It was acting as if someone had shrunk a screen full of type horizontally, "squishing" the letters.
As my computer tech is unavailable, I need to attempt to fix the problem myself, as I use this computer about 12 hours or more daily.
I have listed my complete build in my profile, if any information is relevant.
I have followed all directions I believe, but I am new to this forum. Hope you can help.

Thanks... Read more

Answer:Computer alarm went off while sleeping, then shuts down intermittently

Are you by chance Overclocking? If you dont know what that means you probably arent

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:





Quote:
* 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:





Quote:
* 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.

Hey all,

I downloading a 4GB game patch and my computer goes into such a deep sleep if you dont touch it for an hour or two that it basically turns off, and the download stops. Does anyone know how to make only the screen sleep? or just make nothing sleep at all? I can turn the screen off manually.

Thanks :-)

Hello,

There's an annoying issue with my Windows 10 Home x64 installation. Whenever I lock the computer (? + L) the screen shuts off after about a minute or so, which is fine, but then randomly Windows will turn it back on, showing the lock screen again. After a little while it goes back to sleep only to wake up again a few minutes later. This will continue and the sleep intervals before it wakes up seems to be completely random, ranging from 1 to 15 minutes. I have done a complete format and reinstalled Windows 10 without the issue being solved, and I haven't touched (or enabled) any lock screen timeout options.

Please help, or reply if you have the same issue. Google won't give me any good answers.

Thanks.

Answer:Sleeping monitor keeps being disturbed when computer is locked

Welcome to the TenForums @blueshell

Next time it wakes up at command prompt(admin) enter

powercfg -lastwake

This will tell you what device issued the wake up. (Gives a device id that has to be Googled.)

Failing that note exactly what time it awoke and look in event viewer for events around that time. There is another thread here
where MalwareBytes was causing and issue.

as above. my sleep timer is set to 10minutes. however, i don't expect it to sleep when it is doing important stuff - e.g. adobe/windows updates.. converting files in Lightroom etc. how do i configure that?

Answer:how to prevent computer from sleeping when it is processing stuff?

Hi -First - Who set the timer to 10 minutes as it needs to be altered to a longer time.If your computer is in the middle of processing something, it should not be affected by Sleep Mode after 10 minutes - This includes Updates -This mode is only for when your computer has been idle for the set time you post.Personally only, I find 10 minutes is much too short for sending the computer into sleep or similar modes. I set both of mine for about a minimum of 1 to 2 hoursIf you set it for 10 minutes, by the time you make a coffee (for example), it will be in sleep mode and need to be woken to continue working.During this short time, you should be sure that all work is saved and no programs are left open.I have full Antimalware scans take over 1 hour, and in this time I do not expect the computers to sleep or shut down in any way -Thank You - EDIT - Please read This Tutorial to customise the settings -

Hi there, I have an audio driver that is preventing my pc from going to sleep.

When I run powercfg /requests it gives the following:

DISPLAY:
None.
SYSTEM:
[DRIVER] VIA HD Audio (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_1106&DEV_0397&SUBSYS_1043836C&REV_1000\4&4ac9a6c&0&0001)
An audio stream is currently in use

I have tried powercfg /requestsoverride driver "VIA HD Audio" system, but it still shows when powercfg /requests is run.

What else can I do to make sure this driver is disabled from preventing the computer from sleeping?

Thank you

Hello chaps,

I have had this problem before and I googled the answer, and it told me to go to device manager, select the mice section, right click -> properties everything there, go to the power management tab, and deselect 'allow this device to wake up the computer'.

And it worked 100%. However, I recently installed USB 3 drivers and the problem has started again. I know 100% that this is due to the new drivers because when I type 'powercfg lastwake' into the command prompt, the offending device is listed as the Intel USB 3 eXtensible Host Controller.

However, the problem is, that when I select the properties of this driver in device manager, there is NO 'power management tab'. I have checked all the mice drivers, and 'allow to wake' remains deselected. Furthermore, my usb dongle for the mouse is NOT in a usb 3 socket. wtf?

TLDR: how do I stop a driver from waking up my computer if there is no 'power management' tab for it in device manager?

Thanks!

Answer:How to stop mouse from waking up sleeping computer

In Device Manager there are there devices listed under Human Interface Devices?
If so, what happens if you uncheck these?

I keep getting blue screens that say something about date stamp and other things...and then i run the checkdisk program and then the computer works again...after checkdisk the computer seems to be okay ....but My Computer keeps rebooting and shutting down all of the sudden. Also the computer takes a very long time to start up and im not sure how to fix this.

A few days ago AVIRA antivirus detected a TR/Crypt.ZPACK.Gen2' and a few days before that it detected TR Hiloti 10.7 virus.

I would like to remove all the malware. I have been running AdAware and Malwarebytes, and Avira and still having problems....I really want my computer to stop rebooting all of the sudden because i have been losing work.

When i get a blue screen i have to wait a little while and then run the computer in safe mode and run checkdsk to make it work. It seems my outlook pst file may be corrupt, its very large approximately 9gb but when i look via windows explorer it says its 16gb. I tried to compact it and deleted a lot of emails but the size in windows explorer did not decrease, although the size when i check the folder size inside the outlook program itself says its only 9gb. i think the 16gb size is incorrect....

is there a way to keep the network adapters such as my wireless and ethernet on even when my computer is in sleep mode? I am sharing internet with another computer. Just want to find out if I can do that because when im not home i like to keep it sleeping. Is this possible?

Answer:ethernet or wireless stay on when computer is sleeping

Nope, not for what you want to do. If your computer is sharing a connection to another computer, your computer has to stay powered up. Buy a router, and both computers can have internet access and not depend on the other.

I'm really sorry if this isn't the right place to ask about this. (also I ran out of space in the title...)

For months now I have been putting my computer in sleep mode instead of turning it off at night(there was no hibernate option anywhere), which I now know is bad, so for a while it was understandable that every time I used the computer, it was really unresponsive and every program kept freezing(not all the time, I could still use it but it was very often). But even after I started shutting down the laptop every night for two weeks now, everything is still unresponsive sometimes and it takes about half an hour before I can actually use my computer in the morning. I can't find my problem anywhere on the internet, so what can I do?

Thank you for reading.

This is an old XP Media Center PC, dual core Athlon 4200+ with 2 GB RAM.
 
It has been running ok, it's connected to a tv and is used mostly to stream media. Light web surfing. I am posting this from it.
 
It has always gone into sleep mode regularly and is easily brought back to life by moving the Logitech Bluetooth Mouse.  Or matching Bluetooth keyboard.
 
About 2 or 3 weeks ago it stopped going to sleep.  It never seemed to go idle.
 
I have been looking into it for all that time and I am getting nowhere.  As I type this the hdd is being accessed constantly.  It sounds like it's indexing, but that was the first thing I shut off, indexing.  Kind of obvious. 
 
The next thing I tried was system restore, just rolling it back to before this started.  None of the restore points worked.  Suspicious.
 
I am not really aware of it being "slow" or anything like that, though these kind of activities always do take their toll.
 
I downloaded and ran a program called "what's my computer doing" and I see a lot of MSMPengine and a lot of SVCHOST.exe and Services.exe.
 
I shut down the realtime protection in MS Security Essentials, but that didn't stop the accesses. No change. I thought that would be it.

For the past few months I've had a TV Tuner (Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950Q) plugged into my rear USB. Yesterday my computer stopped going to sleep/hibernation instead it would just hang shut off (no BSOD). After 2 hours of trial and error I found the issue was my TV Tuner. What would cause this? Is there a fix?

Could have simply gone bad.

Might try uninstall/re-install it, see if that helps. Have you tried a different port?

Hi,

When my desktop computer wakes from sleeping it takes approx. 20-30 seconds to connect to the internet. From what I remember, several things happened just a little bit prior to my noticing that this was occuring- 1. I installed Skype (I remember installing Skype on one of my computers before and it kept the computer from sleeping, I don't remember if I was able to fix it or had to do a system restore, so Skype has been a problem in the past although not this specific problem), 2. I ran Combofix for a virus infection, and 3. I got a new modem from the phone company after the old one quit working.

I'm really not sure what the problem is, ie if it is one of the things above or something else completely, as I uninstalled Skype and the problem persisted (was not able to do a system restore to before Skype being installed due to Combofix deleting my system restore points) and my laptop is connected to the same router that is hooked up to the new modem that my desktop is and my laptop is connected to the internet immediately after waking from sleeping so I'm not sure how it could be a problem with the new modem if my laptop connects but the desktop doesn't. I've tried doing various fixes and tweaks from googling around but haven't been successful in finding anything. Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks a bunch for any help.

Answer:Computer disconnects from internet upon waking from sleeping

Hi jdub, try these steps
Step 1 : Click on the Start button. Right-click on "Computer"
Step 2 : Select "Manage." Hit "Continue" if you are using Vista or Windows 7. This will open a new window titled "Computer Management."
Step 3 : Click on "Device Manager" located on the left panel of the "Computer Management" window.
Step 4 : Click on the little "+" next to "Network adapters" to expand it.
Step 5 : Right-click on your wireless network adapter and select "Properties."
Step 6 : Click on the "Power Management" tab.
Step 7 : Clear the check mark next to "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." This will maintain a steady Internet connection even when your computer is in its sleep mode.

Hi, I was hoping to ask for some help with this. When my computer wakes up from sleeping the internet connection takes a while to connect. It's not terribly long (takes like 30 sec. or so) but it is noticable and annoying. Before when the computer was sleeping you could wake it, click on Windows Live Mail and it would start receiving messages. Now if you do that you get an error message and have to exit WLM and restart WLM so the computer has enough time to connect to the internet. Also before if you clicked on IE after the computer woke it would take a second or two to connect to the homepage but now you have to wait and wait for it to connect. One thing that recently has happened is our old modem died (it was like half a dozen years old or so) so a new modem was connected. No software was installed, is it possible that the new modem is trying to use the old modems settings or something? Any help would be appreciated, thanks a bunch.
 

Answer:Computer takes a while to connect to the internet after sleeping

I would contact the support for the new modem and get help in configuring the settings between modem and computer. It seems that the settings do not correspond.

Is there a way to set Windows not to go into hybernation or sleep mode at night time? I ask because I have an antivirus program that's scheduled to do a full scan at 4:00 AM, but when I get up in the morning and wake my computer up, it shows that the scan is just starting. I want to try and see if it will complete the scan before I get to it in the morning (or at least show that it's gone a significant way into it) if I prevent my computer from hybernating/sleeping. Can this be done?
 

Answer:Solved: stopping my computer from hybernation/sleeping

Yes!

Just select "never" for standby and disable hibernation...
