S10 with Vista crashes upon resume - wake up - from LONG TERM sleep - suspend - hibernation

Question: S10 with Vista crashes upon resume - wake up - from LONG TERM sleep - suspend - hibernation

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

Preferred Solution: S10 with Vista crashes upon resume - wake up - from LONG TERM sleep - suspend - hibernation

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

HI,I have an HP2000-2b10NR laptop that I've just installed Win10 (downloaded from microsoft) on to a 60GB SSD. Install went fine and operation is fine, until it sleeps. Then it wakes up and says "a problem has occurred and the system must reboot :-(", then it automatically just reboots. I've seen other threads involving downgrading the BIOS to a different version, but the support page for this model shows no such option available. I previously had Windows10 on this machine on a Toshiba IDE disk and didn't have any such suspend/sleep problem. Could it have something to do with the SSD driver? Any idea how to troubleshoot this? What information can I provide to help figure out what's wrong?

I have a T500 with windows vista SP2  and i encounter the problem that Windows restarts/ resumes activity even though i just put it to sleep /hibernation. It does not happen when running on Battery. The problem is, it remains in the sleep cycle. So if i press Fn pluss sleep/hibernation, it will start shuttuing down, and then once it has it starts up again. and if i just leave it like that it will try to shut down again, and this happens till i either leave it on or shut it down alltogether. Any help would be appreciated Dennis


Go to Solution.

Answer:T 500, Vista, instant resume after being put to sleep or hibernation

It also happens when the laptop is plugged in and the battery not connected. There are times when  sleep/hibernation function normally, but i cannot tell when or what makes the difference.

Hey. I don't have much more to go on with this. I've been coming back to my laptop recently after being away for five minutes to find its had a BSOD and restarted. I suspect that its failing to hibernate properly, when it goes into standby. Tried to install the debugging tools to have a look myself, but I gave up on that =/ Couldn't get it to install. Hope you can help.

Oh, it may be relevant that I saw some sort of memory leak issues in the event log recently. I haven't looked into that yet, but I did notice the section here on those, and might have a look into it myself.

Answer:BSODs while AFK (perhaps related to suspend/resume/hibernation?)

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

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

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

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

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

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

The NIC card's Diagnostic checks are all OK.

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

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

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

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

Any ideas?

This happens 95% of the time. sometimes it DOES work though. anyway, I looked through all the internet...or just about..and cannot find anyone who has found a cure yet. these are the symptoms.

When you go to sleep, or hibernate, when you try to wake it up, it gets stuck on a black screen for about 8 min. then restarts.

if you press shut down, it says "shutting down" and stays there 8 min. then restarts.

i have not been able to find a cure..please help.

also, i uninstalled all the windows updates from the past only leaving one. i unintsalled because i thoguht it might fix the problem and i would just search for updates so that i could get rid of the extra updates and only get the most recent updates. but now, i have no updates and when i press search for updates, nothing comes up. can anyone teach me how to reset so that any updates that apply will reappear? because i believe there are updates that apply, but since i uninstalled it, it is not going to show up on my updates list again. please help. thanks

Answer:Vista hibernation/sleep does not wake up, stays at shut down

Are you hitting the shut-down button just once and not holding it down? One quick press should take the puter out of hibernation.

I am hoping someone can stop me pulling my hair out - please!!!
I have a Qosmio f20-136 which I have upgrade to 2GB RAM. I have successfully installed Visa Ultimate on it which actually runs very well. I get a Visa score of 3.4 which means Aero runs fine. The lowest sub score is actually the CPU (the 1.6GHz Pentium M) with 3D graphics coming in next at 3.9 thanks to the Geforce Go 6600.

I have an annoying problem though.
Hibernate works fine - it hibernates and resumes fine. I have the power button set for Hibernate at the moment and also the start menu power button.
If I close the lid it goes into sleep and when I open the lid it resumes perfectly.There is the sound of a device connecting / disconnecting when I open and close the lid.

However, here is the problem. I would like to use the power button for sleep rather than hibernate and I dont want to wear the screen hinges out by keep opening and closing the lid. So, I tried setting the power button to sleep and also tried selecting sleep from the start menu options. In either case the machine goes to sleep but then causes a problem when I try to resume.

The machine powers up but the screen is black. Everything else is alive but I cant see anything.
If I unplug the power lead and plug it back in (which changes the screen brightness) then it comes to life. If I close and re-open the lid it comes to life. Nothing else resurrects it.

Some may say I'm being picky as I'm almost there with vista but I would dearly... Read more

I am having issues with the windows sleep/suspend option. When i put the computer (desktop) into sleep/suspend state (HDD light is fully emitting), it powers down as it should saving power. But when i turn the PC back on using the power button, the computer fails to resume, at this point i can hear the HDD turning on but no HDD busy light (as it should). So basically it is appears to be frozen, nothing happens on screen.

Ran powercfg -energy in command prompt, got these results:

Hi all, Sometimes, when I come out of sleep or hibernation, the brightness controls Fn + up or end keys stops working. I recall this is handled by the BIOS / firmware of the laptop but it seems like the OS messes things up. I also understand that the OS does interface with this BIOS level feature as it adds the HUD display with the green bars (which also stop working when this problem occurs). Does someone know which service is responsible of handling this under Vista? I could look the task manager but without knowing what I must look for, it is not easy to restart this service. Edit: I just did an experiment. I put the laptop in hibernation using fn + F12. I let it turn off then powered it back on. Using the Fn + up or end worked while in the initial loading screen (the one that says windows is starting with the scrolling bar). Then comes the login screen. Once I was in my Vista account, the Fn short cut was not working again. So it really sounds like Vista is overriding the firmware behavior. Thanks for any help. Message Edited by marcbe on 04-06-2008 05:36 PM

Whenever I resume my system from hibernation, it takes quite a while to get the system back to a normal working state, is this normal or are there any fixes for this?

Answer:Long Resume from Hibernation

It's directly related to the amount of RAM installed.   If you're used to a machine with less memory, it may be longer.

Hi guys! I'm new here so apologies if this is in the wrong place, I couldn't really see anywhere else appropriate to put it due to the nature of the issue I'm having.

Around October 2013 I built my first ever custom PC using pcpartpicker and other resources. I'll put the build in a spoiler below for reference. The build was largely a success, but ever since I built it I've had a problem with random crashes.

These crashes cause the screen to freeze - that's to say that everything on the screen stops moving and cannot be moved (including the cursor) - and the audio becomes extremely distorted. For example, if I'm listening to music and it crashes as the singer says "money", the audio will just turn into a very obnoxious "EEEEEEEEE" sound until I restart. The only way to restart the system is to kill the power or hit the restart button. Hitting the restart button causes the system to lose power after a 5-10 second delay, stay off for around 4 seconds then turn on again.

From what I can tell they happen at completely random times and intervals, I've never noticed any kind of pattern or cause over the 2 years I've been using this PC. The frequency can be anything from once every 2 weeks to 10+ times a day. Actually, the only thing I've noticed is that once it starts happening multiple times a day, it tends to happen multiple times a day for a week+ before going back to happening less frequently.

I have a new T520.4239 CTO with the Intel Centrino Ultimate N6300 AGN wireless adapter. I have searched the board for a recent solution to this problem of being disconnected upon resume and have done all the power setting and PCI Express mods listed by others, and like most, they have not helped. When the computer resumes the network icon in the notification area has a red cross over it and waiting for it to connnect does not help. I have to click on the icon and select the network I wish to join and then wait for the icon to go from blue to white when the computer and the access point finally hook up. I am not using Access Connections. This was not a problem until a round of updates this month. Does anyone have any fresh ideas on what appears to be a well known problem? Thanks in advance for any ideas.

I currently run win7 ultimate 64bit, 8gig ram, intel i7-2600k cpu, and my OS runs on an OCZ SSD (all specs are in my profile)

Sleep mode is set to S3 in BIOS, I have hibernation disabled (so no hibernation.sys file on my c drive)

When I put my computer to sleep then immediately wake it up, the login screen shows instantly, I type in my pass and it loads in like 0.5 seconds.

When I put my computer to sleep but wait for around 1-2 hrs before waking it, it shows the login screen instantly but after i hit login, it gives me the Welcome spinning circle thingy for like 20 seconds before I can see my desktop. That's like longer than my entire boot-up time excluding POST.

Event viewer doesnt show any performance delay, and I dont think my OS drive (OCZ vertex 2) has a cache so I have it disabled. I'm sure all my mobo drivers and graphic drivers are up to date.

Suggestions on why this might be so? Any idea would be much appreciated!

Installed Windows 7 Pro on my Thinkpad (2MB memory and 120GB Hitachi HD) back in January 2014 and ever since the various Lenovo support progs have worked fine, Power Manager included.
All Fn buttons worked and sleep/hibernate and resume, etc., worked fine too.  About 2-3 weeks ago (after July 2015 patch Tuesday) I have trouble with resume, both from sleep and hibernation. Symptoms:

1. Entering sleep/hibernation works as normal.

2. Resuming from sleep/hibernation, on 1st try, the computer resumes to the password screen and then goes back (takes more time than normal) to sleep or hibernation respectively.

3. On 2nd resume try, the computer resumes okay and I can enter a password and get back to my desktop.

Any obvious fixes to this? I have run all PC-Doctor's system tests and they check out okay.

Installed Lenovo Power Manager 6.67.5 (over the 6.67.4 version), but, no difference. Same resume issues. Uninstalled PM 6.67.5 and used W7's native power management. No difference, same resume issues. Then, reinstalled an older Lenovo PM 6.64.2. All Fn buttons
works okay, but, same resume problems/issues, no change.

Could the resume issues described above be the result of one of the July 2015 Windows 7 patches?  If so, which one?  Thanks!

Using HP desktop with Windows 10. Latest Fall Creator Update installed.

After the latest update my machine wouldn't wake up after sleep mode. The screen is blank although I can hear "rumbling" in the background as if the hard drive were indeed on but I see nothing. I have to shut down manually and restart. The Power Setting remained on Balanced since I first purchased the computer last year and it always woke up. I tried changing the power options to "put the computer to sleep: Never" and that works. But obviously this is not a solution, just a delay, and I don't want to stay with this "never" option. I have also read that one can turn off Hibernation but again, to my mind, this not a preferable option to the existing problem.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

PS. Oh, and what does "Post a Poll" mean on this web page?

Answer:Sleep/Hibernation wake-up issue

There are many threads on this problem. Start by turning Off Fast Startup (this disables hibernation, by default). Turn On your preferred Sleep settings and test for a couple days. If this fixes it, you can turn off Hibernation in a command prompt (admin) to delete the hiberfil.sys taking up space by typing powercfg -h off then Enter. I know this means Shut Down vs Hibernation to save power but I've had this setting for a long time, as do many others, and no wake issues anymore.

I have a user that has a T400s running windows 7 pro. I do not have any issues with the computer going to sleep or hibernation or resuming from either. The issue is when the user either puts the laptop to sleep or if he lets it go to sleep (by default at 7% battery remaining), the computer never wakes from sleep to go into hibernation (by default at 5% battery remaining) to do a clean save of the environment to the hibernation file and power off the system. I have other laptops that I setup this way and it works no problem. The user is able to just let the computer hibernate or put it in hibernate manually to get around this, but sleep is a much preferred option due to the speed in which it will resume from sleep. I have updated the Power Management driver to Thinkpad PM Driver The BIOS was updated to version 1.13 and I set the BIOS power settings to "Timer Wake with Battery Operation = Enabled". I also installed the Power Manager 3.12. I contacted Lenovo support and told them what I have done and they said that it should work, and they asked me to run diagnostics using the Toolbox and if that came up clean then to reformat the machine (this is a brand new setup) so I received no help there. Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.

I use this pc as a media centre so this feature is something i really need.
I am on Windows 7 Ultimate.


Answer:Wake the PC from sleep/hibernation when power comes up

With it being a Dell the option may very well be hidden (with no way to unhide it), but have a look in the bios under the Power options for anything relating to "restore on power loss". If it is there it is likely set to disabled (the default on most if not all motherboards), set it to enabled and that should do it.

Pleas help, BSOD happens when opening the lid of laptop.

Answer:BSOD when wake up from hibernation/sleep

0x116 bugchecks indicate an attempt to reset the graphics card and display driver failed to respond within the allocated time interval.
It's mainly caused by a failing GPU or bad display driver.

I suggest updating your display driver to the latest version.
If you are unsure how then here's some instructions.

How-To Install AMD Catalyst? Drivers For A Windows? Based System

I also recommend running Furmark to see if your GPU is failing (I doubt it but it's worth ruling it out as a possibility).
Follow these instructions.

This is an issue I've had with my laptop from the start - if the laptop is put into sleep or hibernation mode and the lid is closed, or the lid is closed and it goes into sleep mode from there, it will not wake or respond to the power button once opened again.

Even holding the power button has no effect, the only way to get it to turn on again is to remove the battery, put it back and turn the laptop on again, losing anything I had open.

I'm afraid the laptop could be damaged by this but there's no other way.
This isn't an issue with windows settings as I've had the same problem with the suspend function in ubuntu.

Anyone had similar issues or know of anything that could have caused this?

If I were to let my computer go into sleep mode, if I let it go alll the way into it, I cant wake it up without having to turn it off and back on and having to log back in, not to mention losing open browser windows/tabs, and any other work.
Same with Hibernation, except, I cant stop that....
The simple answer would be to set it to not go into sleep or hibernation, but thats not a solution, just a temporary remedy.

Does anybody know some possible causes or other reasons?
or at least how to fix it?
I know Im clueless.

Answer:Computer doesnt wake up from Sleep/Hibernation

Hello ComputerTalk-Jayson,Hybrid mode is to have the computer go to sleep first, then after the time you set will go into hibernation. That is why it is taking a bit longer since your computer is resuming from hibernation and not sleep.For you what you want, you would need to set your Power Plan settings to "Sleep" and turn off "Hybrid" and "Hibernate" like in the recommended "Sleep" settings in the tutorial below. Afterwards, the computer should wake up from sleep and be ready to go in a second or two.Power Plan Settings ChangeHope this helps,Max

Hey everyone!

First of all I'm glad to see TenForums is around, SevenForums way back when saved me more than a few times and was consistently a quality board

So I configured my PC and network to support Wake on LAN, and after a long time trying to get it to work I can finally send a magic packet from anywhere connected to the internet and wake up my PC from sleep or hibernation (not power off because my router doesn't allow for static ARP routes ).

The problem is: If I put my computer to sleep/hibernate and wake it up within the following hour or so, everything is fine. If I wait longer than that and wake it up, the computer's lights turn on for a split second and then fade away. I then have to turn on the PC manually.

If I'm using sleep, the lights fade away, and when I turn it on after that, it turns on for 5-10 seconds and shuts down. If I turn it on again, everything is fine.

If I'm using hibernate, the lights fade away, and when I turn it on after that, it stays on.

I have tried powercfg -h on and off, I've disabled hybrid sleep, I've updated my BIOS and Intel Chipset and Management Engine drivers. There are no settings for the PC S states in the BIOS that I could find. My NIC is set-up to not be powered off by the system.

Any ideas as to what this could be?

I searched high and low for a solution to this issue. In windows 7 Pro I was able to put my N585 into hibernation at work, drive home, start up and continue to work where I left off. I have a 2nd N585 that I upgraded to windows 10 first before upgrading my main laptop. That computer will emerge from hibernation just fine. Once I felt comfortable with Windows 10 I upgraded my main laptop to Windows 10. It will not come out of hibernation. I have to hold down the power button and restart and I lose all the work I did prior to the shutdown. I have formatted the drive and installed a fresh WIn 1o install and the problem continues. All drivers are up to date. I ran test utilities on the RAM and all is fine. This is very frustrating. I have enen istalled a new SSD Hard Drive to see if it will fix the problem to no avail. I have spent 2 weekends formatting and reinstalling my software to fix this. Any and all help would be appreciated. I believe this is a hardware issue with the BIOS since I have done a virgin install of the OS.

Hi there,

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

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

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

What can I do to fix this?

Thank you.

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

Hello and welcome to Seven Forums.

Some things you can try for testing:

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

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

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

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

Hope this helps,

I have read and got some information about this. However, I need to be certain my computer use S3 sleep mode. How can I assure this?

Right now I have set my comp. to turn off the hard drive after a while + turn off the screen + some other settings. ATM it takes about 5 sec before my comp is up and running again after taking it to "sleep mode".

The default setting was even more power saving because it took about the same amount of time as an complete start up of Windows 7 takes (30sec-1min).

About how long time should it take to resume a computer that is using S3 sleep mode?

Answer:[SOLVED] How long time will it take to resume Win 7 from S3 sleep mode?

Hello and welcome to TSF.

S3 is plain old sleep mode. I believe the rule is that the computer can use no more than 30W of power to comply with S3. Five seconds is normal for that. The lengthier one, S1, is hibernate. That takes about normal Windows boot time to complete. In this mode, an image is saved to the hard drive containing all of the things currently in memory - programs running, users logged on, etc. - and power is completely shut off.

Moral to the story: I believe your S3 time is completely normal. Any other questions, please let us know.

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.

Hi everyone who is having this isse, I got this issue for months, I spent alot of time to search for the solutions, I found a lot of here but can not fix my issue, I think you did, too. but today, when I decided to remove all of the FingerPrint softwares, you guys please notice that, when the Fingerprint software is disabled, your login windows will become normal as windows XP style. If it apprears in your system, the log in windows can be looked different. When I removed all of that software, I restart and problem has gone. But I am not sure 100% that it is the problem or not. May be we should report to LENOVO or IBM that they can upgrade the driver for Fingerprint or fix the bug in the fingerprint software. Please try this then let me know the result. Thanks.

My computer is to be having some problems booting when it has been asleep/hibernating/turned off. At first it seemed to be just when it had been asleep or hibernating, but recently it wont boot after being turned off for a short while (an hour or so).

What happens, is that after turning it on, I get a "No signal" message on my monitor, and nothing shows up on it. The computer turns on, it makes the usual noises, but no signal comes through to the monitor.

The only way I can seem to get it started after this is if I leave it unplugged for a while, usually at least an hour and a half or so, then it will either boot from scratch or resume Windows from sleep/hibernation.

I never have the problem turning it on at the beginning of the day when it's been off all night, so it's as if it needs to be off for a long while for some reason.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on an AMD A10-5800K and Gigabyte F2A85X-D3H, with 8GB RAM.

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

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

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

Does anyone have any idea what the reason could be?


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

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

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

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

Hi and thank you,

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

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

This issue occurs when the Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store contains incorrect information for the Resume from Hibernate entry and it can be fixed via following these steps.
1) Run cmd(Command Prompt) as Administrator and type "bcdedit -enum all" without quote. It displays all identifiers that are used to make desire function in BCD (boot configuration data).
2) Look for "Resume from Hibernate" segment and copy its identifier like: {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}
3) Now at the end, type the following command "bcdedit /deletevalue {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} inherit" without quote.
After all that Vista SP1 will no longer shut down unexpectedly instead of resuming from hibernation.

I'm running Windows 8 8400 on a Lenovo s205

The origin of the issue:
I messed up a little my MBR by removing the dual-boot system incorrectly, and had to repair it using a USB drive with Windows 8(the automatic repair did the trick). Immediately after the repair, the problem started.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Close the lid,
2. Open the lid,
3. Wait for the logon screen to appear,
4. Enter the correct password.

What happens:
Laptop reboots by itself.
After the reboot, I'm able to enter the password and log in successfully.

How reproducible:

Additional details:
*After the repair, Windows 8 SLIC(I mean the spinning dots on resume) was replaced by the old progress bar with the word "Resuming".
*No dumps get generated
*The settings upon closing the lid are: "Hibernate", whether on battery or using charger.
*Event viewer just contains an error that the last shutdown was incorrect.

Things that I haven't tried:
1. Running sfc /scannow (already done after starting topic; did not find anything)
2. Running a full check disk
3. Trying the safe mode
4. Trying the clean boot

I'm not that bothered by this problem, and I don't really want to reinstall Windows - just curious what it might be.

Answer:Windows 8 RP crashes when entering the password upon resume from sleep

Looks like this was fixed by moving the pagefile to a separate partition. No reboot in 4 resumes, and before - this was 100% reproducible.

Nope, it crashed again.

Brand new laptop opened and set-up on Tuesday, Dec 8th.  Booted with factory install of OS (Windows 10 Home).  After initial set-up, I ran Windows Update and installed and ran all updates including an update to Windows 10 to version 10.0.10586 Build 10586.  After this I installed several applications and removed several more that I considered bloatware (e.g. McAfee Antivirus).  Computer was operating fine the entire first day with no noticeable issues.  
Late in the day on day one, I decided to run the Lenovo Companion app pre-loaded with my install.  It prompted me to download and install an updated driver which I did, however after this it prompted me to restart the computer which I opted to do the next morning.  The computer went to sleep/hibernate overnight and when I opened it to resume from sleep the next day, as I logged in after 30 seconds the screen went black and shut off (not to sleep or hibernate) but shut down completely.  I hit the power button and rebooted...the shut down repeated 3 more times before stabilizing.  Once I was up and running again, I decided to reboot the machine thinking this may solve the problem...when I rebooted and after a very lengthy resta...

My wife's computer has been displaying an error ever since I enabled Hybrid Sleep & Hibernation on her computer:

Dell Vostro 1400
Vista Business SP1 - 32 Bit
Intel T7250

I created a customized power setting for her that did the following when operating under batteries:

Shuts down monitor after 5 minutes
Shuts down HDD after 15 minutes

In advances, the relevant (I think) settings are:

Sleep after - 15 minutes
Allow Hybrid Sleep - yes (on battery)
Hybernate After - 120 minutes (on battery)

When she shuts off the computer by closing the lid, the computer goes to sleep no problem. If you turn it back on within 2 hours, no problem. However, if you turn it on after the 120 minutes, she gets a message that "Windows has recovered from a serious start up error". That being said, we have not found any ill-effects after acknowledging the message. I have also attached a screen shot a details from the event viewer that captured each time it has happened.

In the interim, I have disabled Hybrid Sleep, but left the hibernation on after 120 minutes. I set the computer to hibernate, and it restarted with no error messages.

Any thoughts as to the cause of this? Is the solution a simple OS bug, and I should simply leave Hybrid Sleep off?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello, I have had a strange problem with my ThinkPad regarding Hibernation on Vista x64.  For some reason, whenever I resume my system from Hibernation, if I don't touch it for roughly 2 minutes, my system will re-enter hibernation.  It's quite annoying, actually. I do recall seeing a similar topic posted under a different ThinkPad model, but I can't find that post. I recently did a re-format, but I've had this problem on my older image as well.  I just find it odd that I don't see more T400/T500 users with this problem. Are there any other users experiencing this?

Answer:T500 Automatically Re-Enters Hibernation after Hibernation Resume

That's been the normal mode of operation for my XP and Vista desktops going back to at least 2005.  I assume my T400s will do it as well (though I haven't noticed it yet).

Hi guys, here's a problem I've been having lately. I have Vista x64, and it won't resume from sleep (most of the power settings are at the bottom). When I move the mouse or press a key, the fans spin back up, but my case display and monitor don't turn on. So I have to do a hard reset by flipping the power switch on the power supply.

This leads me to another problem. When I do a hard reset (or rarely when I turn on the PC for the first time), my motherboard beeps at me, saying it can't find my video card (Radeon 4850). I think this issue is heat-related, because when I pull my PC out of my cramped entertainment center (it's in an HTPC case), it detects the card fine. I have the stock fan speed controlled manually, and keep it at 40-45%. This keeps idle temps around 70deg. C (stupid hot ATI design...).

Also, occasionally I'll get a message after POST about "overclocking failed" - but they only thing I've changed in the motherboard utility is the RAM clock speed, because it isn't detected correctly (this is a common issue with my RAM). Motherboard is an ASUS P5E Deluxe.

Any help with any of these issues is greatly appreciated. Thank!

I have a new toshiba satellite L300 laptop. It has intel duo core 32-bit @ 2Gz, 4 G of memory running Vista. Whenever the laptop enters sleep mode, no matter what I do there is no response. The power lights are on, when I hit the power button but nothing on the moniter. I end up having to take out the battery and put it back in and then it starts up when I hit the power button. I have the power settings set at "never" sleep with the power cord, but with the battery settings I can't really do that. Any suggestions?

Answer:Vista does not resume from sleep mode

Microsoft says that by default hibernation is turned of in laptops- I never saw that on the misses' laptop- but here they explain that pressing the power button will make it come out of sleep --- Bit of a backstep, that way, I would think.but............

The only other possibilities that I can offer, is dependant on the amount of ram you have installed- over a gigabyte, microsoft says it will not hibernate ....
Low battery, and less ram, might not help.
I hope this helps.

I find that after leaving my box in suspend overnight, it is very sluggish to resume. But after being online for the first 10 mins the network goes down & I have to run network diagnostics to fix. The network card gets reset each time with a host not found fault. I am using a Edimax Wireless 802.11 b/g/n 32-bit PCI Adaptor (EW-7722In.)

I am using the basic Windows driver as uninstalled the Edimax utility due to above fault.

EDIT: This may be two separate problems, (tho it would be nice to solve both.) I am carrying out a dsk chk as advised on these forums for slow resume from suspend/sleep.

Answer:Sluggish Resume From Suspend Then Network Goes Down

When I researched this issue* I discovered that the links from the Lenovo site to the Ubuntu site indicate the "certification" applies to an extremely specific hardware combination, including a particular processor and display and other options that vary with the E540. If you notice the Ubuntu 12.04.2 link also mentions a very specific BIOS version "Lenovo J9ET27WW (1.06_Ubbuntu)" including the extra "b" in "Ubbuntu." Update:  The BIOS versions available for the E540 don't list a version anywhere near that low.
*I just bought an E540 20C6008QUS, even knowing about this problem, but deciding I liked the price and other features enough to "tough it out," hoping the BIOS issue gets resolved eventually. (I'm typing this on it right now.) Sadly, there are no "perfect" systems available; especially since the current OS and current hardware are both "moving targets," and it seems like something is always breaking!
I appreciate Lenovo for at least providing a forum; not every manufacturer does, and even fewer support linux at all.

Answer:E540 Suspend/Resume failure

Hi,i just bought an E540, upgrade the BIOS to v2.16 and installed Ubuntu 14.04. Now everytime i close the lid and the laptop goes into suspend mode the fan doesn't stop spinning and i can't wake it up. The only thing left to do is to force a restart, which is very annoying. I know many other people are affected by this, too. The only known workaround is to disable USB 3.0 in the BIOS, but this can only be a temporary solution. Reports from other users in,who first encountered this issue by upgrading their BIOS from v1.61 to v2.07,and linux kernel developers in that this is indeed a BIOS issue which can only be resolved by LENOVO BIOS developers. I would like to know if LENOVO is aware of this issue and how are they going to proceed. Best regards,Mahene

I have Lenovo Q180 and it seems that if it goes into suspend or. hibernate the usb has no power. This way it is also impossible to wake up the machine with IR or USB keyboard. I have seen a lot of those questions but no one has answer it from the admins. It would be nice to get some answer from them to see if the machine has this feature. Alos there is no BIOS option to wake from usb or something. And also I can not find the BIOS update for Q180. Is there any? Mine is from something like 11/2011. I have to say that the support for this machine is really bad from Lenovo. I have bought this comp to run Linux ubuntu on it and use it as XBMC but I'm already getting dissapointed. If there is no wake up option from USB IR it is wothless for me and I will sell it.  

Answer:Q180 suspend/resume/ir wakeup

I have managed to get my system to sleep and almost wake up via a certain ir device, a xenta mini keyboard but not from a rc6 compliant (ehome) ir recevier which are supposed to be the most compatible with windows.My problem is that on resume the box fires up it just doesn't tell the hdmi port/graphics driver  so i get left with a blank black screen. I've emailed lenovo and AMD/ati about it and got nothig back. When i button it off and on again it resumes from sleep, i upgraded to win8 in the hope that would fix it but it's exactly the same so I'm left with it being shoddy hardware/firmware. Without wishing to insult you, have you checked the allow this device to wake up the computer box on the device  power managemetn properties with the device manager.Rigth click my computer > manager > device manager find your device there and right click properties and look for a power management tab?good luck

I noticed that my IdeaPad Z575 can't resume from suspend in Ubuntu. I had this problem on my desktop and I thought it was irritating even then, it's much more frustrating on a new laptop. I get a black screen after letting it go on standby, and I have to hard reset it. How do I fix this? Actually, it gets worse, which leads me to believe it might not just be Ubuntu: I can't get the laptop's screen to re-initialize, even with a hard reset, after a failed resume. I have to remove the battery (!) for it to work again. This is what happened twice now; I can't even do a hard reset with the power button, the battery must be removed for it to POST again. Confusing... 

Answer:IdeaPad Z575 Suspend/Resume

This is quite annoying and still happens for about 1 out of every 3-4 suspends. It seems to happen if I have anything at all open. If I have no windows open, suspend *usually* works. Oh well, at least it works sometimes. I'll check my error log and see if there's something important there, though I didn't see anything relating to suspend at all last time I checked.

My W520 is about 2 years old now. Been a good machine. Lately I've had this odd issue where the W520 will not resume from suspend/sleep (not hibernation). It pretends to, but then gets stuck in an endless loop of the keyboard flashlight coming on, one of the green LED lights below the screen, and then repeating itself. This is exaclty my issue: Anyone seen this? Please don't pile on with sleep issues that are different. There are lots of similar isues, but most have different symptoms than this. Googling has shown me that this issue happens on Linux as well as Windows.  Thanks

Answer:W520 resume from suspend issue

Okay, I looked at your video.  I have this exact issue too.  It started about a month ago but I am not able to pinpoint when exactly.  What version of BIOS are you running (and other specs)? This is frustrating!  Most days now for the past month or so, sometimes multiple  times per day, when I try to resume from sleep it fails just like you have described.  I then end up removing power and rebooting into Windows.  This typically also creates file allocation errors (and the need to check my disk).  I have gone through all of the system updates with the exception of BIOS, which is still at version 1.36.  I was going to check tonight what experience others have had with the newest BIOS.  I will post any solutions I discover.  Let me know if you find out anything.

This has been happening for a while, and usually I just go into the Device Manager and hit "Scan for New Hardware" but I've gotten sick of it. I have a Raptor 150 as a boot drive, two 750GB Caviars for storage and a 120GB Caviar ATA drive. This ATA hard drive disappears every time I wake my computer from sleep. My Parallel ATA DVD-RW and Combodrive both appear after resume from sleep...

Does this have to do with the Combodrive stealing the hard drive's letter I assigned it? I assigned the 120GB drive to F:, but the Combodrive now takes this letter. Should I use my drive-mounting control software to force the CD drive to use a different letter?

Answer:IDE hard drive disappears after resume from sleep in Vista

You can change the drive letter that your secondary drive is mounting to by going into Computer Management:

To change the drive letters in vista, you wouldnt need to use any special software.

Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management
Once opened, click on Disk Management, Select the current Volume it is mounted as, right click and select "change drive letter and paths"

I'm not sure if this is an OS or hardware issue, but I just installed Vista on a new build and noticed something odd - the only way I can wake up from sleep mode is to click a mouse button. Pressing a key on the keyboard does nothing, and moving the mouse (without clicking it) also does nothing.

In windows XP, moving the mouse, clicking a mouse button, and/or pushing a key on the keyboard would all bring the computer out of sleep mode. How can I make that the default behavior in windows Vista?

The keyboard is a PS/2 keyboard, and the mouse is a USB mouse, if it matters. Also I have the sleep mode set to S1 in the BIOS, if that matters.

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).

Hi there

particularly @Kari - you seem to be the resident expert on HYPER-V !!!!

I have two reasonably identical VM's (Linux CENTOS 7 basically runnng SAMBA, PLEX media server, logitech media server and sharing some files).

The shared files are on 2 logical RAID 0 arrays -- Hardware RAID controller used ( actual hardware 2 X 4 TB and 2 X 3 TB 7200 rpm HDD's) connect as RAW HDD's so the native XFS Linux file system is used on the VM's -- no problem there with that BTW.

Running Windows 2010 PRO x-64GB version build 1607 with vmware - suspend VM -- takes about 4 secs. With HYPER-V suspend takes sometimes over a minute.

Both VM's have the OS itself on an SSD and they aren't running concurrently - to get HYPER-V you need to disable vmware and vice versa.

At suspend time the servers don't have any clients accessing them - i.e there's no remote TV's watching streamed video from PLEX.

Any ideas !!! -- can't understand why the suspend and resume function takes so long on HYPER-V -- it's a very useful facility BTW.

Hello,I've installed Ubuntu 16.04 on my Lenovo Yoga 2 13 (not pro) and almost everything is working out of the box, however I'm experiencing a single issue that unfortunately is a deal-breaker for me: sometimes the computer does not wake up from suspend.I tried to suspend by both closing the lid or by entering pm-suspend, however the result is the same. Most of the times it suspends and resume correctly, but sometimes (maybe once a day) when I open the lid the keyboard (which has backlight) lights up and the fan starts to spin (as normal when resuming) but the screen says completely black. I tried shortcuts to drop to console mode but with no success... the only thing I can do is to force shutdown by keeping power button pressed. The issue seems to be random, I'm not able to reproduce it (for instance it does not depend on the amount of time the computer has been sleeping, but it seems to happen more frequently when on battery power).Previously I tried with older versions such as 14.04, 15.04, 15.10 and even Fedora 22 and 23 but the issue persists, so it is not linked to a specific version. My Yoga 2 13 has i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, Intel 7260 WIFI and Intel HD 4000 graphics.With Windows 10 this does not happen. Someone advises to turn off USB3 in BIOS but I found no such option for my model, in other cases (with other laptops) the issue was solved by Lenovo with new specific BIOS updates (I'm using the lastest 1.17).Does anyone have any suggestion? Thank you!

Answer:Suspend and Resume VM much slower on HYPER-V than vmware

First, there are two ways to suspend a Hyper-V vm, Save (#1 in screenshot below) and Pause (#2):

Both can also be found in Action menu. Using PowerShell, the cmdlets are Save-VM "vm_name" (to resume Start-VM "vm_name") to save vm, and Suspend-VM "vm_name" (to resume Resume-VM "vm_name") to pause vm.

Difference between these two methods is that whereas Pause only releases all host processor resources still reserving RAM allocated to it, Save releases all host resources, including RAM. Pausing and resuming a vm is instant and the recommended way to suspend if your host has enough RAM to manage without part allocated to vm.

You could say that relation of these two suspend options is as relation of Sleep (Pause) and Hibernate (Save) on a physical machine.

Saving a vm really takes some time. This, the time needed of course depends on how much is going on, how many and how resource hungry processes are running on vm. Testing it just now on three virtual machines with different programs up and running I got Save times from 12 - 15 seconds (resume 5 to 10 seconds, no programs running) up to 25 - 30 seconds (resume 20 - 25 seconds, Windows Update installing updates, a document open in Word, a presentation in PowerShell, video playing in Kodi and so on). These times on low end i5 / 12 GB / 7200 spinner laptop host.

Not knowing Plex I can only guess that it might be at least a partial reason for your slow suspend. Why VMware do... Read more

I like to put my new XPS Studio i7 into S3 suspend mode when I am away. This works properly if the suspend time is of relatively short duration (< 4 hrs). For longer durations, when I press a key to resume I can hear the computer respond (fan revs, etc.) but both of my dual monitors remain black. I have the most recent drivers and bios. I've seen various posts that indicate this could be a vista problem, or a graphic card problem, but no real solutions that have worked for me. How can I best troubleshoot this?

What I've Tried
Tried the various power management settings from performance to energy saving
When resumed with black screens, I plugged Wacom tablet into USB hoping it would trigger a video update

My Configuration
Dell XPS Studio i7 940
ATI 4850 graphic card
Dell 2408WFP primary monitor
Samsung SyncMaster 912n secondary monitor
Dell supplied USB mouse
MS USB Digital Media Pro keyboard
Vista Home Premium 64 bit

Also, I am using an IOGear USB KVM switch that switches the USB Keyboard, mouse and 2408 display between the i7 and an older Dell laptop. The laptop suspends and resumes properly.

Hi again! It's time for another cosmetic XP tweaking question.

In the out-of-the-box install, Windows XP on my notebook PC had this nifty feature I loved -- closing the lid to suspend operation, then opening it back up and hitting the power button to resume. It played this two-note piano melody when I did so, and then a more upbeat tune when I clicked on my avatar icon to get back to my desktop.

I've since reinstalled XP several times. Right now it does the exact same thing that it used to, but without the cheerful piano sounds. How can I get them to come back? Kind of a silly question, I know, but they really did brighten my day.

For reference:
Yes, the sound is turned up.
Yes, I have double-clicked on the speaker icon in the system tray and made sure sound is turned up on everything.
Yes, I have gone to "Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices" -> "Change the Sound Theme" on the Control Panel, and gotten the dialogue box where it lets you assign sounds to system events. I scrolled through the list, but I'm not quite sure what I'm looking for.

That last thing is as close as I've come to solving the "problem" on my own. Any suggestions?

Answer:Solved: No sound effects for Suspend / Resume?

Hello folks!Has anyone had this happen?After buying the sandisk extreme ssd and installing it, i get bsod every time when resuming from suspend.I have tried other hdd with no problem, and tried a fresh install with win7 x64, but still have this problem with the sandisk..Any ideas anyone would be aprreciated, thanks

Answer:BSOD on resume from suspend with sandisk extreme ssd

I developed a waking problem from sleep mode when I changed out my ram to bigger. My Lenovo loses about 600mb of 'something' from memory between entering the sleep mode .. to waking up? I still haven't figured it out. You might want to try changing the memory sleep/suspend setting to just hibernate. You should wake up plenty fast from hibernate on that ssd. If using it.. you might also read up on the intel rapid storage technology. I read that needs uninstall/reinstall sometimes when changing to ssd.

I bought a top of the line XPS 15 9550, with 1TB M.2 SSD, 4k touchscreen and 16GB of RAM. Had frequent blue screens of death that I fixed by replacing the SSD drivers with the Samsung ones.
Now my biggest woes are that quite often the speakers crack and that I cannot put the laptop in standby/sleep.
If I have the power supply plugged in and I put the laptop to sleep, when I wake it up from sleep the internal keyboard no longer works. The keyboard backlights react to my typing but windows doesn't see me typing anything. Even the CAPS LOCK led doesn't light up if I try to toggle that key. Luckily if I connect an external keyboard, that one works.
If I don't have the power supply plugged in and I put the laptop to sleep, when I try to wake it up from sleep, it instead tries to boot and complains about a missing loader file. At that point if I plug it in and I hit retry it proceeds with the rest of the boot but of course since this is a fresh boot all of my work prior to attempting to go into standby is lost.
Please advise.
thank you!

W7 PC wakes up from sleep every few minutes. It didn't use to. I am the builder / owner / sole user. Investigation done so far at the DOS prompt to establish the cause:

powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
(no results returned)

powercfg -waketimers
There are no active wake timers in the system

powercfg -lastwakeWake History Count - 1
Wake History [0]
Wake Source Count - 0Other ideas to try and establish the cause with please?

Many thanks.

Just got a new dell with Vista. It went into hibernation and wont come back on. You have to reboot and then get the 'blue screen' saying it was shut down improperly. Called ideas and not much help. Had me delete a file for hibernation, but it still does it. They have no clue. Any ideas???

I have a Thinkpad R40 that crashes with a "bad pool header" error when it resumes from suspend when logged into Windows XP. I've run advanced diagnostics on the RAM and hard drive and both test as good. I haven't been able to find much on the error online, so I'm hoping someone here can clue me in on what else to look at.Message Edited by MattB on 05-01-2008 12:51 PM

Anybody else fed up with the SL510? I bought the machine, in the first month, I was happy with it. Everything worked beautifully. I bought this machine based on a great experience with my previous T43. Now the SL510 has been something else entirely; in the secongd month, it began acting sluggishly, slow to respond, freezing during internet browsing sessions. When I put it on sleep mode, sometimes it would not sleep at all. Later when it could enter sleep mode, it would wake up on it's own. It still does that to this day. Now recently, it started a new trend of shutting down entirely on it's own if I try to put it in sleep mode. When I do switch it on, it says 'windows shut down unexpectedly'. I have also not been able to back-up in the last two months. The built-in Wireless WAN also tends to work at it's own choosing. Some programs run on thier own without my initiation, leading to extended shut down times. My antivirus is always up to date, so are windows update and Lenovo update and drivers. I have no idea what to do, it really is frustrating. Anybody else experience something similar or is this uniquely my problem?

Answer:SL510 quirks with suspend / resume - slow, freezes

Hi, I have a SL410 and its working fine (until now) but I think you may be experiencing software issues. Please try the following: 1- Backup all your data to an external device or DVD's2- Insert the  restore disk you´ve got from lenovo and let it restore your machine.3- Once it´s done, upgrade all the drivers of your note on the lenovo site (including the BIOS)4- Check if everything is working as you wish.5- If so, restore all your data6- If not, contact lenovo for your warranty. Best Regards Tecio

I've purchased a DELL 640m recently, and it came with Windows Vista. I decided to get a new HD and install XP on it. After downloading a bunch of drivers:
R92578, R114079, R120775, R120895, R141246, R149798, R150593

Everything seems to be working except.... I see a system error everytime the machine is restarted or resume from suspension/hibernation.

Worse is that all programs are closed after a restart from suspension/hibernation. System Error follows:

Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c0000005, parameter2 a8cbe3b8, parameter3 b9142084, parameter4 00000000.

thanks in advance,

hidoes anyone have a problem that the ultranav software appears to not be active after resuming the x300?  if i close the laptop, and then open it a bit later, the ultranav driver seems to have been unloaded.  i.e. - the touchpad only works like a regular mouse and the advanced settings of the touchpad seem to have been non-functional.  if i reboot the system, everything returns to normal.anyone else see this on their x300s?  this only happens sometimes, not consistently everytime, which makes it even more puzzling.

Answer:x300 and ultranav: doesn't work sometimes after resume from suspend

Go to the Lenovo site US page and type "MIGR-69378" into the search box in the top right corner & search. Click on either link to go to the X300 driver matrix "Drivers and software - ThinkPad X300".  Download the UltraNav 2 Driver, extract the files, & install (READ THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS!!). If you're still having problems, you can try to reinstall the ACPI Power Management driver, which does just what it says, controls the power functions on the system.
