Wake from sleep with keyboard

Question: Wake from sleep with keyboard

Hi - I have a yoga 700 which I can't get to wake with the keyboard or mouse. I have to use the power button and keep accidentally rebooting (at least I hope that's what's happening, otherwise I have a random rebooting problem). Things I've already done/checked - -the control panel settings-the device manger; neither keyboard nor touchpad has the power management tab -the usb hub has an option re allowing the wake from sleep, but it's grayed out; also, my keyboard/mouse aren't usb-the bios also doesn't have a power management tab-tried enabling via command line, got an error message that I didn't have proper permissions; made sure I opened command window as admin Any other ideas????

Preferred Solution: Wake from sleep with keyboard

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.

I just upgraded the APU and motherboard of my HTPC and i had to format. I used to be able to wake it using 2 keyboards but now it isn't working anymore.
In the device manager, the option "allow this device to wake computer from sleep" is enabled

In power management, USB selective suspend is turned off.
My motherboard is MSI a75m-e45.

In BIOS advanced settings, in the "wake up event setup" options, there is an option called "wake up event by:"
It is currently set to "OS"

The second option is "BIOS" which unlocks the following options:
"wake up from S3 with USB device"
"wake up from S3/S4/S5 by PS/2 keyboard"

Wether i enable or disable these options, the computer still won't wake from sleep using any USB devices...

It is also impossible to wake the computer sending a magic packet with the correct MAC address. I used to be able to do that before the recent hardware change.

I use Windows 8.1, installed on a SSD
All drivers latest version

Answer:can't wake from sleep using keyboard or WOL

Also did you check the USB root hub in device manager right click it select power management Tab and uncheck this " Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power ". I found sometimes in Power management settings doesn't always work.

Hello members,

I was wondering how to wake my laptop from sleep using my Bluetooth Logitech K810 keyboard.
Currently, through Device Manager, I do have "Allow this device to wake computer" checked through Power Management for both the keyboard itself and HID Keyboard Device.

What's odd is that I also have my Logitech MX Performance connected via 2.4Ghz and I have the "Allow this device to wake computer" unchecked, but only my mouse wakes my laptop from sleep.

So overall, I disabled my mouse from waking up my laptop and I have enabled my keyboard to wake my laptop from sleep. But the opposite occurs.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Answer:How do I Wake PC from Sleep using Keyboard

You wouldn't be able to have the Bluetooth keyboard wake the system because Windows needs to be running in order for the keyboard to work. Windows is what makes the connection using Bluetooth. So, if it is in Sleep, it wouldn't be able to wake it. The mouse has its own connection to the mouse without the need of software so it is like it is physically connected and therefor it would be able to wake it.

I hope this makes sense

-Ben

I have a U450p that I use with an external monitor and keyboard and mouse. Since the laptop's lid is usually closed, I'd like to be able to wake it from sleep using the external keyboard and/or mouse. However, it seems the only wake to wake it from sleep is to open the lid and hit one of the keys on the laptop's keyboard. I have enabled "allow wake from sleep" on the devices in device manager, as well as disabling power down of the USB root hubs in device manager, but nothing seems to work. Unfortunately, there are no settings in BIOS that are relevant. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hello, I have received some brand new Elitebook 840 G3 and they refuse to be woken up from sleep by pressing a key on the keyboard - you have to press the power button. Having raised this with HP support they have said the hardward doesn't support this feature.This does seem a bit ridiculous considering we have far cheaper and older laptops which can do this. Does anyone know how to enable this or if this will be included in a BIOS update?We have tried every power management option in the BIOS we can find (there is no option for wake on keyboard) and there are no editable options in the power management tab in device management. Thanks

Just built a new machine and the only issue I have is when the machine wakes from sleep/hibernation, the keyboard is dead and you can't log in. The Mouse is fine.

Normally I'd consider turning off power management on the USB ports, but since this is my first Sandy Bridge build I thought I'd check and see if it's a known issue of some sort first.

Hi, I'm new to the forums and I need help waking my laptop with my in-built touch pad and keyboard. To do so I need to enable a setting on my Touch Pad and Keyboard driver/device properties, which should be located underneath the 'Power Management' tab. However, there is no such tab. I have also tried to use the 'powercfg -deviceenablewake' command, with Admin rights, to no avail. Please help me! This is causing major headaches when I my laptop goes to sleep!
Note: I have recently installed Windows 10, as my old HDD 'failed', installed/updated all my drivers, disabled hibernation mode and am using all in-built components (ie: no USB keyboard/mouse).

Answer:Wake from Sleep with Touch Pad and Keyboard

You won't find driver properties there.

Right click start and select device manager, then go to your KB and Mouse items, right click and select properties, but I've looked at mine for my laptop, and there is no power management tab there.

Are you sure it may not be asking you to check a BIOS setting for power management to allow KB/mse to wake it?

By default KB /mse should wake it with no further action.

List your laptop make, model, screenshot of device manager with what's listed for KB and mse.

Hi...so finally got my X1C today. One thing I am noticing is that the machine won't wake up from sleep mode when I press any key on the keyboard -- it only wake up by pressing the power key. This is a bit unexpected to me. Is it by design, and is there any way to change this? Thanks for your help.

Answer:X1C won't wake up from sleep mode using keyboard

Does it awaken from stand-by if you press the Fn key? That's been the ThinkPad standard for as long as I can remember.

Up until recently, I have either put my laptop to sleep or let it go to sleep at the end of the day. The next morning I would hit either the mouse or keyboard (probably mostly the esc key just because it's sort of prominent at the corner). Some time recently, I haven't been able to wake up the machine this way. It won't wake up until I lift the cover.

As far as I know, I haven't changed any settings.

The settings for both keyboard and mouse have Allow this device to wake the computer checked in Device Manager.

Hey all,

I've just installed a sexy new 512GB SSD in my machine as the main drive, and as a result, had to reinstall Windows.

After getting everything set up, I put the PC to sleep for the first time, and when I went to wake it a while later by hitting the space bar (something that's always worked in the past with everything the same except the new HD) nothing happened. I tried a few other keys with the same result, along with the mouse.

So I went into the device manager and checked things; 'allow this device to wake the computer' is enabled for both the keyboard and mouse, but when I check the usb root hubs, they've all got the option greyed out.
I checked in the UEFI (BIOS) and I can't find any option to change it there (and, like I mentioned, the only difference is the new HD, the BIOS settings weren't touched), and I'm about ready to lose my mind.
If it helps, I'm running an ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z motherboard.

Help??

Please?

Only a 4 el-dirt-cheapo - no manual or drivers etc...Power, Sleep and Wake Up.The Power Button shuts down the PC and I've found i can change the option under Power Settings in Control Panel.However the Sleep and Wake Up buttons do nothing. No options in Power Options and enabling Hibernate makes no difference.What is Sleep (as opposed to Hibernate)? And is there a way to enable it or will it be down to my Motherboard / BIOS?Windows XP SP-2

I use a monitor, USB wireless mouse and a USB wired keyboard with my NB100.

My keyboard has a power button and it's set up to put the computer into sleep mode when pressed, which works fine. My problem is that the only way I can wake the computer is to press a key on the NB100's built-in keyboard, pressing anything on my USB keyboard does nothing.

I've gone into device manager and unchecked 'allow computer to turn off this device to save power' and also enabled everything in the BIOS but it still wont work.

I'd really like to get this sorted out as I have the NB100 tucked away out of sight and it's a bit of a pain to have to dig it out, open the lid and press the space bar every time I want to wake the computer :-(

Any ideas anyone?

I bought a new Acer E5-571-5552 recently, it came with Windows 8.1 64bit. One of the ways I use my laptop often is in "docked mode", basically connect it to external monitor via HDMI, and external USB mouse & keyboard. I set the windows power options for "close lid" to do nothing, then it works fine like a desktop. This works fine with all other laptops I've used in the past (Lenovo, HP, Toshiba...etc). But this new Acer has trouble waking from sleep, the USB keyboard & mouse only light up, but doesn't wake up the fan/drive/monitor. I have to open the lid and press a key on the laptop (USB keyboard/mouse still doesn't). I've opened case 3601882U and chatted with 2 agents, one had me update to latest BIOS 1.11 which didn't resolve it. The other tried to insist it was a limited feature, that the Acers had to have lid open to wake up the computer from sleep. I think this is a broken feature. Does anyone know if this is true for all Acers, or just this windows 8.1 model? 

Answer:Wake from sleep using USB mouse/keyboard broken

Go to Power Options/Change Plan Settings/Change Advanced Power Settings/USB Settings/USB Selective Suspend Setting and change them to Disabled and see if that helps.

This system is a upgrade from a x201. My x201 would wake when moving the mouse or pressing a key on the external keyboard. My X220 is setup the same way in a dock with an external keyboard and mouse. However on this one I have to press the power button to wake it up. I have checked device manage and the power management settings are set to allow this device to wake the computer. But I have to press the power button. A call to Lenovo support did not help. He told me that the hardware was fine and it was a windows configuration issue and he did not support windows I should call Microsoft. After arguing with him because Lenovo sold me windows he escalated thee ticket for me but does anyone know the answer for this. I am sure it is just a setting somewhere and it not a big issue. But it is one I want to fix. Thanks

Hello, I'm the owner of an EliteBook 8560p running under Windows 7 Professional 64 bits Edition. I started the installation from scratch with a driver-empty Windows. I've downloaded the drivers separately on the HP Support Website. Everything is running fine but when I put my computer to sleep (normal stand-by mode) I am unable to wake it up from the keyboard keys or trackpad buttons. The only way I can wake it up is by pressing the Power Button. Then it wakes up normally and I go back to the Windows 7 login screen. Is it possible to wake up this computer by pressing a key instead of the power button ? I don't want to press it too often.For example on my old Acer Aspire 5315, pressing a key wakes up the computer instantly.Also, I have no "Allow this device to wake up computer" option in my Device Manager.I can't find this option in the BIOS neither.Can you wake your HP Notebook computer by pressing the keyboard ? Is there a way to do that on EliteBooks ? Thanks and sorry for my mistakes, English is not my mother language.

Answer:Keyboard doesn't wake up computer from sleep

If you have an external display, it will stop the computer from waking. Disconnect display port cable and try again.Also, check your drivers so that Power Mgmt. allows mouse or keyboard to wake system. I have found these issues effect my HP 8460P as well as HP 2540P. Also, make sure that the BIOS allows USB to wake system.

I am not sure if this is the right board to post this question in, but I am having the same issue with two HP Pavilion 13-a113cl laptops that are running Windows 10 Pro (64-bit). The issue has to do with waking the machines from sleep using the keyboard or mouse pad. I am not having any issues with them waking from sleep using the power button or when I open or close them. I checked the BIOS and the power settings aren't there. (BIOS version F.32)I have the boxes checked to allow the devices to wake the computer in the power management section without any success.I have changed the Intel MEI driver to 9.5 instead of 11 that is typically installed  without any success. I am not sure if this is an issue with the BIOS and Windows 10 or something driver related. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:New XPS 8910 tower won't wake up after sleep from keyboard or mouse

Version of Windows?
Reboot and IMMEDIATELY press F2 to open BIOS setup.
Look for an option "USB Wake" (or similar) and make sure it's ENabled. Be sure to save the change before exiting setup.
If that doesn't solve the problem (or USB Wake isn't listed in BIOS...

Open Device Manager and expand list under USB
Double-click a USB root hub and click its Power Management tab
Uncheck box "Allow PC to turn off..."
Repeat for all USB root hubs

Now expand list under Human Interface Devices in Device Manager

Uncheck that same box for any HID entry with a Power Management tab.

Then go to the Windows Power options page

Identify the current power plan and click link to change its settings
Click link on next screen for Advanced options
Disable USB Selective Suspend
Save the change to power plan if prompted

Reboot and see if problem is solved...

All of a sudden, my 64-bit Win 10 Pro desktop will no longer wake up from sleep via my USB keyboard or mouse. It worked perfectly for the last year, no matter how many power cycles it went through. I shut it down last night, but after I booted up this morning and later put it to sleep, it would no longer wake up no matter what I do. There were no changes whatsoever since yesterday; no installs and no updates. I've tried a few power cycles since then, but the problem remains.

I made no changes to my power profile. I do NOT have "fast start" or hibernation enabled, and I've made no changes to my BIOS settings. All of the HIDs have "Allow this device to wake the computer" enabled as well as all USB devices. No devices are set to "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" enabled.

I've made no changes at all since the last time it worked. What could have gone wrong? Why is it suddenly no longer working??

Answer:Suddenly, Win 10 desktop won't wake from sleep via USB keyboard/mouse

Hi Thenin, and Welcome to ten forums.

Can you give a list of the hardware you are using? CPU, Graphics Card, RAM, etc.

Have you tried to plug your keyboard and mouse into a different USB port?

I've had this issue twice. One on a MSI board and one on an ASUS board.

I had contacted MSI support and they verified that the board itself didn't support Wake with USB Keyboard or mouse from sleep, yet it stated it could. It would resume from sleep with a PS2 keyboard and mouse just fine.

On the ASUS board, I had the USB Keyboard and mouse plugged in to the USB 2.0 ports that use the ASMEDIA drivers along with the ESATA port on the back of my board. It stopped waking from sleep, and come to find out, Windows update ran and automatically updated the drivers for the ports. So I moved the keyboard and mouse to a different port, and it's worked fine ever since.

You can always try a different keyboard and mouse to see if there are different results.

This is SO frustrating
I've had this problem for about a year now; Basically, when I put my computer to sleep, it wont wake up unless I press the power button. Jiggling the mouse or pressing ANY button on the keyboard does nothing.
I have already done significant research on this, so here are the things I've already tried:
1)Checking the "Allow this device to wake the computer" and unchecking "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" In device manager. I've done this for every USB option it would allow, as well as for the mouse, keyboard, and every HID device it would allow.

2)There is no option in my BIOS for allowing/disallowing the keyboard to wake the computer, or any other device for that matter.

3)Hibernate is disabled, and hybrid sleep is not possible on my system

4)Going into my power options through control panel, selecting change plan settings on my current plan, then changing advanced settings, and setting "USB selective suspend setting" to disable

5)Plugging my mouse into different USB ports, on both the front and back

6)Updating all the drivers

7)Uninstalling and re-installing all the drivers

8)Scanned and removed all malware

9)Trying all of these over and over again
Can anyone please help me? I understand it's a hard problem since there are so many solutions, but any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I have a Logitec M505 wireless mouse.

Thank you!

Answer:Mouse and keyboard no longer wake computer from sleep

Have you replaced the batteries in the mouse?. If you have a wired mouse try that & see if it works. If it does you may have a wireless interference problem from another device that is causing problems with the M505.

A newly-built Win 7 system operated normally, including wake from sleep by keyboard and mouse, until a second USB3 Anker hub was connected. The first Anker hub worked normally. The system keyboard and wireless mouse are plugged into the first Anker USB3 hub. After connecting the second, identical, Anker hub the system turned off after time-out (no blinking green power light) instead of entering Sleep and could be started only by the Power button, causing Win7 to offer the black screen Start Normally, which it always did. Disconnecting the second Anker USB3 hub corrected this problem. This series of events repeats; it is a hard failure. I then connected the same second Anker USB3 hub while the system was running and Win7 reported that "iusb3mon has stopped working." The second Anker hub was unplugged and the system rebooted; Task Manager reports iusb3mon task is running. Clearly, the second Anker hub is preventing entry into normal Sleep mode. But, after all this, neither the keyboard nor the mouse will wake the computer from Sleep; the Power button does wake the system. "devicequery wake_armed" reports both the HID-compliant mouse and the MS keyboard are set to wake the system, though neither does.

I know of no reason one cannot have two identical USB3 hubs connected concurrently. Yet, the second Anker hub has surely introduced some problems; perhaps it is defective, though it does function with a thumb drive plugged into it for test. I've cold booted nu... Read more

I made no changes to my power profile. I do NOT have "fast start" or hibernation enabled, and I've made no changes to my BIOS settings.

I just received my 8910 two days ago, set up went well etc., but when I put it to sleep the mouse and keyboard (that came with the pc) will not wake it up. I have to push the power button and sometimes this will not wake it. Drivers and software are all up to date. Allow mouse to wake computer is checked in options. After spending 20 minutes on the phone waiting for tech service and being disconnected twice, I have almost given up. Thank you to anyone who might have a fix for this issue.

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.

Hi Guys,
I have just purchased an Dell Inspiron 3147 2in1, overall I really like my new laptop/tablet but....
A couple of things are bugging me.  I would love it if someone who also owns this laptop could confirm a few things for me.
1. Can you wake your laptop from sleep by hitting any key on the keyboard, not only by pressing the power button.  Every laptop that I have ever used can wake via keyboard although my new laptop cannot.  It seems strange that a new laptop would not have this feature.
2. Is anyone else having ghost touches on their touch screen that closes programs, deletes stuff and causes chaos.  I have found that this issue starts after closing the laptop then re-opening it.  If you sleep the computer then wake it, this fixes the problem. 
3. Also I'm having problems with the USB ports on the left side of the laptop.  Some devices get recognized and some don't.  My IPhone 4 goes nuts when plugged into the one USB 3.0 port, it constantly turns on and off every half a second.  All devices work in the one USB port on the right side.
Anyways, any input would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
Ben

Answer:Dell Inspiron 3147 2in1. Wake from sleep with keyboard.

Hi Ben,
I would suggest you to update the BIOS and Video card driver on the system. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the BIOS from BIOS section and Video card driver from Video section onto the system and install it.
http://dell.to/18r60nI

Also, please follow the steps mentioned below to recalibrate the system to check if it fixes the issue.
Press Windows key on the keyboard and start typing Calibrate.
Then tap or click Calibrate the screen for pen or touch input to open PC Settings.
Check that the monitor shown in the Display field matches the screen you want to calibrate.
Tap or click Calibrate, and then follow the on-screen instructions.

Please let me know if this helps.

My Yoga 3 Pro won't wake up from sleep / hibernation, the only sign of activity is the keyboard lights just blinking, AGAIN! :-(. This is a common problem with Yoga 2 13 models I have learnt, not only from various boards, but also my self, when I returned a yoga 2 13 after 5 days, and got the Yoga 3 Pro model. The laptop is now only 6 months old. I experienced the same wake up problems 3 weeks ago with my 3 Pro, and the shop here in Copenhagen sent it back to service. When I got it back 4 days ago, the service team had just changed "Cinch Audio" and updated the BIOS. It seems like they never really fixed the real problem. Two days ago the computer again had problems to wake up, and now it seems to be frozen in this blinking mode. I I have tried hard reboot (holding the power button for ca 20 secs), but it won't solve the problem. Has anyone experienced the same problem, and any durable solutions to it? If it stays like this, I'll hand it in, try to get it reimbursed and I will gladly buy another computer, but not from Lenovo anymore.

So I have an Inspiron 17R SE 7720 that has all the latest drivers with BIOS A11 (Win 7 Ultimate x64)...  I have all the power settings configured for correctly for sleep (no hybernate), however no matter what I try, I can't get the laptop to wake when the lid is closed via USB keyboard.
I'm using Logitech's Wave MK560 combo (unifying receiver) - both the keyboard/mouse have the wake option enabled in their hardware settings.  I also have wake from USB enabled in the BIOS.
The interesting thing is that if I put the computer to sleep with the lid open, I can make it sleep/wake it from the Logitech devices.  With the lid closed, I can only make it sleep - the only way to wake it up is to open the lid and press the power button.
Anyone know of a fix to this?
Cliffs Notes:
Lid Open : CAN sleep/wake from USB Keyboard/Mouse
Lid Closed : Can ONLY sleep - won't wake unless I open Lid&press power button

Answer:Inspiron 17R SE 7720 won't wake from sleep when lid is closed via usb keyboard/mouse

It appears that a new BIOS A13 was released on the 18th March, all it says in the "fixes" section is "maintain release". Will download it now and see if it has fixed the wake on USB issue.

Hello, My T430s is hooked up with an external monitor and wireless keyboard/mouse (Logitech LX710).I put the laptop itself under my desk since I don't have to take it with me that often. Now, when I hit the sleep button on my keyboard the computer goes to sleep, as expected.However - there is no way (it seems) that I'm able to wake it up. I'm running Windows 7 (x64).I have tried the different USB ports (to make sure I use a powered one) for the Logitech wireless USB adapter.In the BIOS setup I've checked to see if the USB ports can wake the computer from sleep.In the device manager, under the keyboard (and mouse), tab Power Management, I've enabled "Allow this device to wake the computer". I've done the same for the "Human Interface devices"."Update driver software" for the keyboard and the mouse says I have the latest drivers for them installed.In the Lenovo Power Controls, under Advanced Settings, USB Settings, I've tried both USB Selective Suspend Enabled and Disabled. They are Disabled at the moment. Under Global Power Settings, I've Enabled "Always On USB", and "even when the computer is off". So... I'm slowly running out of options. So at the moment, I can either leave the computer on at all times (which is what I'm doing, with an occasional reboot - which seems not so environmentally friendly), or I can crawl under my desk in the morning, take the laptop from the small stool I put there, be careful about power, USB, and monitor cables and attached e...

Answer:T430s doesn't wake up from sleep with Logitech wireless USB keyboard and mouse

I don't have that mouse, but I have a T430s and a Microsoft wireless mouse does wake it up. I always use the blue (USB3) port on the left side for any functions related to startup, because I learned that the always-on port (on the back) is started later in the power-up process. Use the right-click button to wake it, which is the function that was originally defined as the one for that purpose, although I believe that mouse-movement also wakes it on a wired mouse.

Hello, I have a brand new Inspiron 15 7559 that is having some issues. First and foremost the keyboard is useless after the computer goes to sleep. This just started a few days ago, about a month after receiving it. The screen comes back on after opening the lid and the touch pad works fine. But no buttons on the keyboard produce any response. The keyboard becomes backlit like normal but does not produce anything on the screen when I try to put in my password/pin. I can click on the Ease of Access button and get the on screen keyboard to appear. This does work and allows me to input my pin. But that's no way for my laptop to run. And a laptop without a keyboard is pretty useless. My second problem is that my computer no longer sees my Nvidia dedicated graphics card. I only mention this here because I am not sure that the 2 issues are unrelated. I noticed a few days ago that the Nvidia icon was not in my system tray ( I think that's what it's called) like it normally is. So I opened it manually and it told me that it could not find a driver for this computer. That is odd because just the previous day I had been looking in the program and all was fine. So I followed the link to get a driver. I followed all the instructions on the Nvidia site and downloaded the driver for the card my computer came with. But when installing it a window popped up saying that no hardware could be found on my computer for that driver. Not sure why it doesn't see it.

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:

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?

Using reset or power button on case just restarts system to exact condition above.

Answer:Can't Wake PC From Sleep

Well I'm a beginner but I had a lesser important case than yours. I found you interupt a process of sleep if you try to wake it before about 5 seconds. Anyway, there are a couple of things you can try.

Unplug the power cord and plug it back in.

Pull out the wall socket thingy and put it back in.

Try doing something like booting into safe mode if you can.
The pc maybe still functioning but the monitor can't interact with it. Once you try to boot it, keep pressing F8 for about 10 seconds and then press enter. See if anything happens.

Could also be a shortcircut or something. Other people have had a similar problem.

debug the computer has failed and since then the laptop has gone on a loop -->fail to repair in startup repair
--> restart computer again --> running startup repair. So i decided to reinstall the OS.

after reformatting and reinstalling windows 7 to my laptop though, i seem to encounter a similar error. The laptop
seems to work fine although whenever it goes to sleep and i try to wake it up, the screen froze and starts
flashing and the laptop wont work until you restart the computer again. I made my second attempt to reinstall
a new OS to the system and the same error occurred. My laptop has the latest bios and i tried various versions
of drivers for my graphics card (intel 965 chipset) and the problem continues to persist.

I was wondering if there's any program to debug this error or whether this is a hardware error that i can somehow detect.

Thanks!

Hi all,
I have win 7 x64 running on a custom built machine. Every now and then the machine freezes up when I try to wake it up from sleep (usually overnight). I have not made changes to make it hybernate. I experienced this again last night and am wondering if I could get some help analyzing this minidump as I don't know how to analyze it.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Answer:win 7 won't wake up after sleep

Hello IndianinIA,

I wonder if that was caused by your network driver. Try uninstalling and reinstalling that driver, e1e6032e.sys, and make sure that you get the latest version.

Hi group,When my PC (HP Pavilion) goes into "idle" - when I'm not using it - it will not wake back up. I get no video, and sometimes my mouse will not wake up either. When I disconnect my power cord and reconnect the computer, I am able to boot up and things work. The computer works fine as long as I don't let it go to idle. For example, when I shut it down, it will boot up fine the next time. This just started happening recently after two updates: one from Norton, and the other from Quicken. I have no idea whether one of these caused the problem. I keep my PC well-maintained with all the latest updates. I have run the power troubleshooter, as well as the updates troubleshooter, and both detected no problems. Open to any ideas you may have,Thanks,Jeff

Hello Eight Forums,

New HP Notebook. One month power on. W8.1 64bit

Setup with Classic Shell and Fast Startup Off

Have to decide next week. If I should return for new machine exchange or keep with two known issues.

1) Sleeps on timer okay. Just cannot wake from Sleep. Tap space bar. Black screen goes gray. Times to black.
Noticed ethernet lite not on. Plug is clear plastic with white led normally on and on during startup.

Suspect power to NIC not satisfied so, no wake from Sleep. Have to force shutdown. Startup is normal. Forced shutdown is not flagged prompting startup options.

2) igfx Tray Module has stopped working pops dialog box on some startups.

HP and I have been round and round. HP wants me to contact Microsoft. We all know that's not fun. HP is bad enough. Always leaving remote session with machine worse for the experience.

HP went through settings and drivers. HP un-installed, re-installed over-installed and updated drivers till they were exhausted. Using HP Support Assistant and pulling soft paks from HP.com.
Then came the requisite System Recovery. Then came more BS.

Yesterday, after a Device Manager graphics driver un-install / install. Windows Update offered it's two cents with an Intel HD Graphics update.

I can return to Staples for new same machine. No harm. No foul. No cost. New warranty period.

Machine worked no issues afaik for two weeks. Then BIOS and UEFI manual pull updates via HP Support Assistant. No issues.... Read more

Hi,

Hoping someone can help me with this.

I installed 7RC a couple of months ago. Since then whenever my pc sleeps I can not wake it up. It used to wake up fine in XP.

To get it going again I have to cold reboot or pull the plug. When it comes back up everything I was doing is still there, I just have to enter my password.

I think I have all the settings right but if someone could run me through everything that needs to be set I'd be really grateful.

Thanks in advance.

It may be that one or more devices in your system is/are not compatible with sleep mode, hence those options are greyed out.

I have a 4 yr old custom built desktop upgraded from Win 7 pro to Win 10 pro about 8 months ago. Up until two weeks ago the sleep/wake up has worked perfect. Now the unit will not wake from sleep. I have tried everything I have seen and nothing has worked. It has to be booted from sleep. I have now set sleep time to never and will shut the unit down at night rather than letting it go to sleep. Anybody have anything new that I could try. Is MS working on this???

Answer:will not wake from sleep

Win 10 pro installed on a Desktop computer. Like so many I have experienced the problem with the Sleep option not allowing the computer to Wake. Nothing I have tried has done anything to change this, so I decided to not use the Sleep and to just Shut Down when I am not using the computer. It seems that the Shut Down option does the same thing as Sleep. They both put the computer in a state where it will not Wake up. The only options are to hold the Power button until the computer completely shuts down, or to hit the reset button. Now when I do a normal Shut Down I am then holding the Power Button to completely Shut Down the computer. This is totally ridiculous. Is anyone working on a solution to these problems? I also have a Laptop with Win 10 installed that is doing the same thing with Sleep and Shut Down.

Since installing SP1 my computer has been acting like a one year old. When I put it to sleep at night it keeps waking and then goes to sleep only to wake again. Left untouched it went through this cycle all night. Starts 20 seconds after I put it to sleep and stays on for 2 minutes and then goes to sleep for 20 seconds then wake for two minutes etc etc etc.I disconnected a flash drive that I had in a USB port.
I disabled "wake timers" under Sleep in Power Options
I disabled "allow this device to wake the computer" in the properties of the USB wireless mouse
In the properties for the network adapter under the "Advanced" tab I disabled the "Wake on Settings". That fixed the problem but then I couldn't wake my computer with Logmein and I think Orb is disabled.
Noticed when I went back that there's another tab "Power Control" for network adapter. I disabled "allow this device to wake the computer" and changed the Advanced tab "Wake on setting" to "OS controlled".
Now when I put it to sleep it seems to stay down. I'll update tomorrow if it misbehaves tonight.

Answer:Sleep Wake Sleep Wake

If you think it might be the network card, you can always open a cmd prompt and run powercfg -lastwake to see which device was logged as waking the machine last.

Hi manusdn7 and welcome

The windows memory test does not stress your memory enough to tell, plus it is run from within windows.

You need to run memtestx86

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember that memtest errors can be either memory or bad motherboard slots so you may have to test memory one stick at a time, and the slots with known good memory.

Let us know if you need further assistance

It's frustrating.

Hi,
I've been running Windows 7 Ultimate for the better part of a year now. For about the last week or so now, my computer is going in to (what I assume is) sleep mode at the most inopportune moments. No amount of anything will wake the computer from its sleep - not the keyboard, mouse, ethernet activity (which should keep it from falling asleep in the first place) - only a hard reboot will bring my PC back to a state where I can use it.

Some of the things I've tried, so that people don't answer with "change your power plan settings" or some such thing. If it was that easy, I wouldn't be here asking for help. I'll restate that I've been using the same Win7 Ultimate install on the same PC for a year now, and it's only in the last week this has been happening.

Anyways, I have:
Verified all my power plan settings;
Disabled any screen saver;
This is an older desktop, not a laptop, so hibernate and hybrid sleep options are not even present. Nevertheless, I've followed this guide and this one for disabling both.
Used device manager to specify my keyboard, mouse, and ethernet card as "wake up" devices. Also used the command line to manually set these as "wake from any state", only to have them all not work.
Tried changing group policy and eliminating sleep/hibernate from the user group.

I have a new computer with Vista Home Basic. If I set it to "sleep" for short periods there is no problem. The power button light flashes and if I press the button the PC resumes where I left off. However if I leave it in sleep mode for a long time, eg overnight, the PC will not awake and I have to turn the mains power off and on and reboot. The PC suppliers say that with modern computers and programs sleep should not be used for long periods. Seems strange. If I want to continue in the morning where I left off in the evening what can I do? Should I use hybernate? How does that work?

Answer:Sleep - can't wake up!

It may be considered unwise to leave your PC on for long periods when unused. The PC is still `live` electrically and is using power, still `warm` and accessible. As a result, there is the risk of damage from electrical power `spikes`, perhaps fire could result and of course it is not particularly `green`.Whether there is a real problem with it not resuming after long periods of inactivity or whether this is a `feature` of the OS I have no idea. But, it would seem reasonable for it to resume unless there is some form of software problem; bad graphics drivers have been known to cause this kind of anomaly in XP.

Hi, I was wondering if anybody has had this problem before?

My computer was put to sleep earlier on today, and I moved the mouse to turn it back on. The power light went from orange (sleep mode) to blue (powered on). Nothing was displayed on the machine. Bashed some buttons, nothing happened, so did a hard reboot.

The power button went red (which happens if I hard reboot it) then to blue but that's it. The fans and hard drive starts going, but no beeps, no POST, no display. Nothing.

Already, I've tried:

- Reseating my RAM sticks - nothing
- Unplugging the hard drive - bf actually broke a sata slot, although he says it was lose before. The pins are not straight now and I can't get the black slot back onto the mobo. Plugged hard drive into sata 2 slot, still get no reaction.

Anything else I can try?

Answer:Satellite Pro A200: Wake-up over keyboard using an USB keyboard

Hmmm? I don?t know if you can wake up the notebook if the lid is closed but as far as I know it should be possible to wake the notebook using a keyboard itself.

The Toshiba HWSetup was preinstalled on the Vista OS. In this tool you should find an option called: ?wake-up on keyboard?.

This can be found in the keyboard tab and you need to set it to ?Enable?.
Furthermore please enable the Legacy USB support. This option can be found also in the HWSetup under ?USB? tab.

We have a Dell Inspiron 11-3147 laptop running Windows 10.  For the last few weeks, it does not restart after going to sleep. We managed to get it going a few times by restarting in Safe Mode.
We called Dell support, and the technician suggested we install the A11 BIOS, since we were on the A10 version.  We did, and the problem persisted, Restart with Safe Mode did not help anymore.   We are able to start it only by doing a System Restore to the oldest Windows 10 restore point available. What is different when the laptop restarts after a system restore rather than from a normal start-up or a restart after going to sleep?
When the laptop is up, it runs without problems, which eliminates both hardware and Windows software as the cause of the problem. Which seems to point to the BIOS. The issue has been reported widely in Dell user forums since version A08, and it looks like we too are victims of Dell being unable to fix it.
We understand our laptop is out of warranty, but it is only two years old, and only Dell software is preventing it from working properly. We believe that Dell owes us a better solution than regressing to the A07 BIOS. 
Are there any solutions that don't involve a hard reset or a complete windows re-install?  This laptop is now useless.  Why doesn't Dell acknowledge the problem?   

Answer:Inspiron 11 won't wake up from sleep

This might not apply, but remember that Hibernation requires a brief press of the power button to wake the computer. If a key press doesn't wake the computer, try the power button. You can turn off Hibernation and Hybrid Sleep in Power Options, Additional Settings.

Answer:BSOD on Wake from Sleep

1. Old drivers
Please update drivers - old drivers are notorious for BSOD.

Update Speedfan - if there is no update available, uninstall Speedfan.

2. Daemon Tools/Alcohol 120% and Sptd.sys
I suggest that you uninstall Daemon Tools/Alcohol 120%. It uses a driver, found in your dump, 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

Uninstall sptd.sys, and take care of the two drivers. Reboot and see how your system does. Post back and let us know. If you get another BSOD, upload it and we will go from there.

Initially, I posted this in the sound section:

After I wake up my pc from sleep mode, windows audio seems to be gone but only certain things. On browsers there's no audio (any video on YouTube do not have audio and stop playing after 7 seconds). The only sound that does work however is on iTunes for some reason.
I can open the playback devices fine but its does not work when I "test" it; as soon as I hit the recording devices tab, it freezes up and does not respond
The only way to get the sound back is to restart my computer all together

Are there any solutions to this problem?
(Also using a soundcard)

I was told that sound may not be the only issue to this and it may be related to hardware and the computer failing to wake completely.
I would also like to add that after waking my CPU is also working more than it should: normally around 20-30% with my mozilla firefox open, but after waking from sleep and nothing running in the back, its working at around 70-80% for some reason.
Not sure if this is related to the sleep/sound problem, but just adding it in here if it helps

Answer:Wake from sleep problems

I can't tell by the way you worded your issue if its related more to one app or not but sounds like it could be a Flash issue. If it isn't related more to one particular app I would suggest:
1. See if there is an update to your BIOS because I have seen original shipped BIOS with MB's causing such issues. O have seen many issues with resuming from sleep effecting cpu, cpu fan speeds, ect.
2. I thought there was a number two but can't think of it at the moment.

7 has been running perfectly since I installed it Jan. 2. Around Feb. 10 I noticed that I could not wake it from sleep, I would have to cut power, wait a bit, and then boot. When it boots however, it will prompt that it is "resuming windows" like it had been sleeping. All windows updates are installed and I have Panda Antivirus running along with Spybot (both show no infections or errors). I looked in the action center for errors and got the following message:



I think this is the problem, there were about 12 other listings of the error.

I'm not sure if it's just that my bios needs to be updated or what, so I'm just looking for any suggestions on what to do. (My bios hasn't been updated yet since the install of 7)

Some Specs:

MOBO is an ASUS P5WDG2 WS Professional
Dual Core 2.6ghz
6 gigs of RAM
8800GTS (driver version is 8.17.11.9621) aka 196.21
Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS (yeah, it's old)
[also I have a USB keyboard and a Bluetooth mouse that uses a USB dongle to connect]

Any help is appreciated!

My new Vista Premium PC from Evesham will not 'wake up' if I put it into sleep mode, (I have to press the power button until it goes off) I've looked at the BIOS but am unsure what to do. There is no documentation from Evesham on this. Any help gratefully received.

Answer:Vista PC will not wake up after sleep?

Sleep is always a dodgy option in any version of Windows - looks as though Vista is continuing a long tradition. Shut it down, don't put it to sleep.

I am randomly facing a BSOD when my PC wakes from sleep. This usually happens when Windows goes to sleep automatically and then I try to wake it after a while. However when I put my PC into sleep manually I don't face the issue when it resumes again. I really appreciate if someone can help me resolve this issue.

I suspected it was a NVIDIA driver issue so I updated and downgraded but the issue still remains. I am currently on version 326.80.

Answer:BSOD After Wake from Sleep

Only 79 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 100 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

You have a 802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card:





I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win7/Win8 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7(and I suspect with Win8) - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7/Win8 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.



This could also be a problem with the video card(s). Please try the suggestions here: Video TDR Timeout - 0x116 + 0x117 - Sysnative Forums Don't forget the video stress tests here: Hardware Diagnostics

With only 1 memory dump it's difficult to figure if this is a hardware problem or not. Normally we need at least 5 memory dumps to venture a guess about a hardware problem. I suspect hardware here (due to the involvement of hal.dll in the dump) but cannot be certain at this point.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Is this a bug?

Running Windows 7 professional 64 with the latest updates. I tried this with 2 different types of mempry and got the same results. If i use only 2G of memory the system will wake up from sleep mode by hitting the keyboard. If there is more than 2G of memory the system will not wake up the fans will cycle on and off every few seconds but will not resume into windows. I tried this with G.SKILL PI and Kingston hyperX memory and received the same results

Answer:Win 7 won't wake up from sleep if comp has + 2g mem

Yeah mine will wake up if you hit it soon after it goes to sleep, but if you let it sit for a while it won't wake up.
