Howdy all, I seem to have the worst luck with my PCs either not sleep or they wont wake up! lol my current issue is not waking up, every night I put my pc to sleep and the next morning when I click the mouse or push a key either nothing happens or the tower lights up and fans kick on but the screen stays black. and I must power down and restart

I have all new video drivers, I have a feeling it may be my keyboard because sometimes the keyboard doesn't shut down when the pc is put to sleep. It still has all its lights on. It is a Merc steel series gaming keyboard,

The only other weird errors I get in my event viewer are these, and they have to do with windows search.

Eventid 1006 The Windows Search Service has failed to create the new search index. Internal error <4, 0x80070002, Failed to add project: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data\Applications\Windows\Projects>.

The Windows Search service terminated with the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.

Eventid 7023
event id 7034

The Windows Search service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 37 time(s).

Any help would be great!

Hello jdude,

I has this issue once as well. I added AHCI Link Power Management - HIPM/DIPM to my Power Options. Setting it to HIPM+DIPM stopped this for me. You might give it a try to see if it may for you as well.

Answer:Windows 8.1 wont wake up from sleep mode!!!

Maybe it's just really sleepy? *hears drum being hit in background*

sorry...erm..yeah was too tempting.

To my knowledge there is no real clear reason as to why this happens. You would think in so many OS systems with the wake/sleep function that they would had perfect it by now huh? You may get some people suggestion checking your drivers, energy/wattage issue/etc. I personally don't believe any of that though myself. If it can operate while you are on it just fine but you turn it off and it won't come back on it sounds more like an OS issue than anything else.

I used to have the same issue with an old old Acer Aspire 5720z. I never found a real solution to it either.I truly think the only "cheaphax" here would be for you to just disable sleep mode.

You could see if this helps you any but I highly doubt it will.

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.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide

hello i was creating a slide show to put on a dvd and when i was done i went to switch off my computer accidently hitting the sleep button and i hit the restart button and went to work came back but it was still acting like it was asleep my computer say no signal check power cable and such so i've unplugged everything and i have even tried the default analog monitor with no success i switched of my system from the back for about 30 seconds then powered it again and then it turns on switched itself off then turn't itself back on what is happening?

Edit: the mouse and keyboard have no power when i switch the computer on but i have lights in my machine which are working and so is the cd drive. I was wondering if this could be a power supply issue or maybe a motherboard issue.

recently my pc running winblows xp started putting itself to sleep, its not suppose to, i never set it to do that, i looked at the power management settings and they havent been altered, they are set to never do this to me, yet it is doing it. when it happens, i cant get it to do anything, i cant wake it up, the mouse and keyboard both fail to respond and i have to turn the pc off and back on. the only thing i did before this stuff started happening to me is an update on spybot search and destroy, i emailed the makers of that program and they claim that s&d wouldnt cause this(but under the circumstances i have to be skeptical) what is doing this to me? how can i stop this? its annoying the crap outa me

Answer:why does my pc now go to sleep? wont wake up

Do a system restore to before you updated Spybot. That update shouldn't have affected it at all. Worse case scenario, go into power management and create a custom scheme and use that.

Answer:wont wake up from sleep w7

Hi, this from another post covers your problem:-



Quote:




Hi, since this revolves around "hibernation" lets take a look there. Your hibernation settings are contained in a file "hiberfil.sys" and if it is corrupt could be the cause of your problem (none of this will do any harm). Lets clear the file:-

Open a CMD prompt (as administrator, accessories right click command prompt select "run as administrator)

At the prompt type:-
Code:
powercfg -h off press enter
reboot to take effect
This will disable hibernation and clear the hiberfil.sys file.

After reboot open another CMD prompt (as administrator, as above) and type:-
Code:
powercfg -h on press enter
reboot to take effect
Now go to this site and apply the recommended settings for power saving (inc hibernation) read it all.

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/63...-problems.html

Hopefully this will resolve your problem.(don't worry about the vista applies to 7 as well)

The video driver provides the signal to keep the monitor out of standby so if it is corrupted somehow it might not be able to come out.

check the driver in device manager

I can't figure out why but my system wakes up from sleep/hibernate mode just fine, but the monitor wont turn on.

Answer:Display wont wake up from sleep

Are you using display port?

I had that issue with my 6970's and 7970 on my U2412m. Something about hibernation causes it. I turned off hibernation and the issue went away. I still let the display turn off after 10 min.

I used to have to either unplug the displayport cable and reattach it, or unplug power to the monitor and reattach it.

Hope im putting this in the right thread.

I have a Compaq Presario CQ50-110US laptop with Vista.

have not had any problems with it until a few minutes ago. I was moving it so I closed the lid and unplugged the power cable with it still turned on. Whenever I do this it goes into some kind of sleep mode which I can sometimes get it to wake up from and other times I have to reboot. I couldnt get it to 'wake up' so I tried rebooting, waited a few seconds and started it back up, but it still seems to be sleeping.

It will start up and I can hear stuff moving around inside, the power button and the internet-connection button both turn on, but the internet-connection button is orange instead of blue (only does that while in sleep mode that ive seen) and the screen remains black. Also the button to toggle the touch-pad on/off lights up but it does not respond to hitting it.

Ive tried rebooting it 3-4 times but it never 'wakes up' and the screen remains black.

A few weeks back I upgraded my laptop and since then my computer started acting weird. My battery had until then been perfect, but now it drains during one night when computer is turned off, sleeping, closed lid etc..Also, as soon as I let it rest, close the lid or simliair it wont wake up again. The keyboard lights are on but notning except a hard reset works.Sometimes I do the hard reset and find that the internet webpages sometimes are "saved" and opens up when I power up again.The fan has also started to wound alot more recenlty.My guess is that some downloaded upgrade caused this but I dont know how to fix.I have tried downloading all the latest drivers etc.I have also tried a ton of tips from different forums regarding power settings, hybernation and such but nothing works.All of this happened right after the bad update so I know that the problem is not the battery itself..Thank you

I just got my T540p and I've discovered that the display will never wake from sleep. I hear the computer beep and see the green light on the power key, but the display stays dark no matter what. I hit the keys, trackpad, etc... and nothing. This is a brand new machine and I dont want to send it back. Why wont the display come back from sleep? I am running Windows 8.1, fully updated. BTW, I thought I would try reinstalling Windows 8 from a USB drive. This computer wont boot from a USB drive either. One step forward with a great display, two steps backwards from Lenovo with a display that wont wake up and the inability to boot from an emergency USB.

Answer:T540p display wont wake from sleep

I have the same problem when sleeping. However, I do think I have a potential solution to your USB drive problem. If you have UEFI, then you will have to make your USB drive bootable under UEFI. The one you made for legacy BIOS will not work. Hope that helps.

It has worked  ok for nearly a year.  Now when I put the machine to sleep by selecting window->shutdown->sleep, it goes to sleep. However, when I come back to it, and scan my finger etc, I find the machine has completely shutdown, and is booting from scratch.  Then, when it gets to the winows part, it hangs on the finger print reader icon.  I can hear people rining me on skype etc, so winows has booted, but the dam FPR wont get past the login.  I ahve to hit escape, then click on manual login then bam, Im in a fully booted up windows. I remember this happening a few times in the early days. It only seems to happen in the doc (with a fully charge battery and on mains power). I live with it. The problem is the machine takes about 3 minutes to boot on a good day, I seem to spend all my life waiting for it to boot.  I have started using my toshiba R830, which has identical apps installed, which boots in under a minute to work untill the W520 has "warmed up".  The W520 boot much quicker if I dont use the FPR.  the FPR seems to hang somehere every time.  

Answer:Since 2 weeks, W520 wont wake from sleep in Doc.

Try to uninstall FPR, reboot then reinstall the FPR and see if it helps.

Very frustrating... My X1 Carbon, using Windows 8.0 (due to corporate policy I am not allowed to upgrade to 8.1 nor downgrade to 7.0) which includes 4 Gigs of RAM, and an Intel SSD, if placed into sleep mode (either by closing the lid or pressing the FN-F4 button), will not wake from sleep mode if the machine has been in sleep mode for a while (guessing anything over an hour.)  Yes, Yes, I know pressing the FN key should bring the computer out of sleep-mode, but the FN key doesnt work.  The only thing that works is to completely shut-down the computer and turn the computer back on, which naturally causes the machine to completely reboot. Any and all help would be appreciated.

Hello Cavair,

You might see if plugging the wireless USB receiver directly into the back of the computer instead of a USB hub to see if may work for you instead. Afterwards, check in Device Manger in the Mouse and Keyboard "Power Managemet" properties tab to make sure that the "Allow the device to wake the computer" option below is checked.

I have 4 Internal HDDs installed, 3 are SATA and 1 IDE, Whenever I wake my PC from a hybrid sleep the IDE drive no longer responds (slave drive) It causes explorer to freeze for awhile as it tries to access and the HD light stays lit until I reboot the PC.

Also Im unable to shutdown properly or reboot when this happens, I have to do a hard reset or hold the power button. (attempting to do a normal restart / shutdown always gets stuck at "logging off").

I never use to have this problem before, it seems to of started after I enabled Intel AHCI in my bios recently, but I didnt think this would effect an IDE drive? The drive works fine before the PC goes to sleep and no SMART errors are reported in HD Tune etc.

Any ideas appreciated.

Answer:One of my hard drives wont wake from Hybrid sleep.

If you used the intel controller to set it to AHCI mode - did you install this driver from the gigaybyte site it will update the AHCI driver and should provide correct functionality- Intel SATA RAID Driver - 10.5.0.1015 - GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1366 - GA-EX58-UD3R (rev. 1.6) i think its the latest version or equivalent version of the Intel Rapid Storage driver which is needed even when you dont have raid enabled. Note Im not 100% sure here as i have no gigabyte board and i cant unpack the driver to check it.

You could also update to the latest driver for your video card - long shot fix.

Otherwise Switch back to ide mode - AHCI is only usefull for hot swapping hard drives - if you have no need there is no speed difference as most modern hard drives have this enabled automatically. W7 should find the original driver upon rebooting if you just reset from AHCI to IDE mode in the bios.

If you used the microsoft fix, to be sure of success, follow this path in the registry : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci - then right click start - modify and change from 0 to 3 - then go to bios and reset back to IDE mode and reboot.

I tried everything from disabling hibernate to resetting power options. Nothing has worked so far.
Everytime I put my computer to sleep it wont wake up. The monitor wakes but the computer will not boot into windows. I need to hold down the power button and cold boot.
Anyone else have similar issue on this bug?

Answer:Computer wont wake from sleep after Creators Update.

Yes. I am having a very similar problem on my laptop. My problem is when I open my computer, it should wake, but instead the monitor stays off and the computer is unresponsive to any input. I then have to manually restart my computer. This seems to happen completely at random. Some days I can put my laptop to sleep multiple times a day and no problems, but other times I may have to force a shutdown 2-3 times a day.

My PC is fairly new and I'm having problems with slow shutdowns/restarts and slow sleep/wakes. Recently it seems to fail waking altogether and restarts after a while instead. Usually during waking I just have a black screen for a long time before the reset/restart but sometimes I see the Windows log-in screen but it's unresponsive.
The problem predates my CPU undervolting and doesn't seem to change when I switch RAM settings back to Auto instead of XMP (I my RAM necessitates some kind of overclock in order to function at its rated speed).

Can anyone advise how to proceed? Thanks.

I recently purchased a Thinkpad X120e (0596) and am genneraly very happy with it however when it goes to sleep the screen does not wake up when the laptop does. when i wake it up i hear the fan spin up but the the screen remans powered off. ive tried waiting several minutes and it still doesnt wake up, ive also tried holding the power button for several (more than 5 ) seconds to force it to power off fully then start it again and the screen still doesnt wake up. the only way i can get it to work again is to make sure to unplug it and remove the battery for several seconds then i can get it to boot with the normaly expected complaints from windows after an abnormal shutdown.I have the latest updates from lenovo and microsoft installed including the latest firmware. I like the laptop so i would rather report the problem and provide any information neccisary to find a resolution than have to return it. Ive seen this problem with other laptops before and know its probably a  bug in the firmware thats not waking up the GPU is ther any tool i can use to provide the debuging info or any more direct way for me to report the bug I tried calling customer support and they told me they told me my only option was to return it and they could not report or record the issue.

Answer:x120e 0596 screen wont wake up after sleep mode until unplug it and remove the battery

I'm experiencing a similar issue. After resuming from suspend state, the screen won't turn on sporadically (in about 50% of cases). However, after hard-resetting by pressing the power button for 5 seconds and turning it back on, the screen would also turn back on. No need to remove the battery. I'm on Ubuntu 11.10 and, to my knowledge, it doesn't seem to be an issue with the O/S.

Hi,

I am new here. Hoping someone can help me out with this issue. I work in IT so am not a complete computer bonehead and am at my wits end with this.

My laptop is about 4 years old, it's a toshiba. For whatever reason, it started taking 5+ minutes to wake up from sleeping. If it sleeps for an hour, it's OK.. but if you leave it sleep all night and try to wake it up in the morning, it's quite cranky. After the 5+ minute wake up, it performs as normal. It was running Windows 7 Home 32 bit.

Troubleshooting steps that I have taken are as follows.

Reinstalled windows. Issue was resolved! but after about 2-3 weeks, issue came back. I thought maybe it was some type of windows update, so I reinstalled windows again and paid closer attention to the updates. Issue presented itself again after 2-3 weeks, and there were no updates immediately done prior to it starting.

I started to think maybe it was something related to my hard drive, so i performed laptop surgery and swapped out my original hard drive with a solid slate drive, and installed windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (this laptop can support 64 bit so I figured why not upgrade.).

issue again was resolved for a few weeks, and now it's back to taking 5+ minutes to wake up again.

If you're turning the laptop on from scratch, it takes 10-15 seconds tops. if you're restarting, it's 10-15 seconds tops (man, I love SSD...)... if you're waking itup within the hour, its 1-2 seconds. But anything longer then that, 5+ minutes.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The NIC card's Diagnostic checks are all OK.

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

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

It is an overly discussed topic about the S3 sleep state. If your bios is not set for Legacy USB devices, the OS is allowed to shut down the USB hub, wireless mouse and keyboard. You are going to have problems waking the system out of S3 state.

Hi

I've been searching for a while now trying to resolve this problem. There are loads of threads and I've tried loads of solutions like uninstalling and reinstalling drivers etc.

The situation I have is that Windows will sleep and wake perfectly fine if I use the remote that came with my TV tuner card but nothing else. If I try to wake it using the wireless USB keyboard I have it appears to power up but nothing happens. The power light goes from flashing to soluid but there doesn't appear to be any other movement. Equally when Windows Media Centre tries to wake to record it does the same thing.

Are there any suggestions of what I can try and what should I look at (and / or post here) to try and help debug?

I have been through all the power management settings, and selected Never to all the selections in the advanced section, also in my power plan. I have even formatted my Drive and reinstalled win7 but still have the same problem.

When it is asleep, I have a halfmoon key on my keyboard, I have tried pressing this to wake it up but to no avail, also pressed the main power button, but this normally shuts it down.

Is there anything I can do to stop this happening, run a small program to keep it awake, or alter something in commands to stop it.

I have done a Google search on this problem and have checked and re-checked all of my computer's sleep settings. All are set so as to enable mouse or keyboard wake up from sleep. I have checked my bios for any settings that would inhibit wake up from sleep.

Not only will my computer not wake up from sleep, but when I restart it after sleep (I must do a power off restart) it will not start properly. It prompts to resume Windows and then locks up. I can get out of this loop only by turning power off again. Other than this problem the computer works properly.

The only way my pc wakes up from sleep is by pressing the power button. The keyboard/mouse will not wake the pc up from sleep.

I have tried all the troubleshooting/Youtube tips/device manager settings and nothing will wake my system from sleep, other than the power button.

I also tried a different keyboard/mouse which plugged into a USB port and that would not wake my pc up either.

I also tried different power options settings and nothing worked.

Here is my hardware list: ASUS Z87 Deluxe/Quad motherboard with 16 gigs of RAM; Samsung 950 PRO M.2 SSD plugged into a PCIe slot (used ASUS M.2 X4 adaptor); cpu is the intel i7-4770K; video card is the AMD Radeon HD7700.

So I was wondering if there are any other tips which would get my keyboard or mouse to wake my pc up from sleep?

I don't want to wake it up from my smart phone.

Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum. Just bought a Windows 7 PC today. After setting it up, it looks as if Windows 7 takes longer to sleep and wake up than Vista. Here's how I compared the two:

1) We have a recently purchased HP running Vista, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 1 TB hard drive, and an AMD Phenom II X4 910 processor. With just Windows and Firefox running, the computer takes 6 seconds to sleep. Wake-up takes just under 5 seconds.

2) Today, we purchased the latest version of the same HP computer -- so the same processor, RAM, etc., but running Windows 7 (by the way, it's a long story why we have two of the same in our house). With just Windows and Firefox running, the computer takes more than 3 times as long to sleep -- 20 seconds. Wake up takes just over 10 seconds.

Any ideas what might account for this? Certainly, the operating system is different, but I guess I was expecting basic Windows functions to be faster, or at least as fast. Would anyone with Windows 7 mind timing their sleep and wake-up modes? I'd be curious to know if your sleep/wake times are similar. Thanks.

Answer:I can't wake up windows 10 after sleep mode

Welcome to Windows Central.
There are mixed findings/opinions and suggestions on this matter since the issue could be a result of a mixture of different issues, such as hardware settings, drivers, software settings and configurations, etc. Some of the solutions worked for others while not working for others. Some of the ideas discussed are:
1. If you let your PC sleep using a hardware button, then that same hardware button should be able to wake the PC up.
2. If you've allowed your PC to wake up through USB in the BIOS, then put your PC to sleep and then unplugged any USB device attached to it while it was sleeping, then that PC won't wake up unless the hardware power button is pressed. This could also be applicable to Bluetooth devices, since Bluetooth may be temporarily disconnected when the device goes to sleep.
3. If your PC had a custom manufacturer-specific software (e.g. Samsung Control Center) that allows the laptop (what device are you using, by the way?) to wake up when the lid is opened, then this feature was completely removed in Windows 10 brought about by the uninstallation of that software. You would need to re-install that software, run it in compatibility mode for a previous version of Windows and then re-enable the said feature.
Should you wish to provide us with more details or ask further questions, please don't hesitate to create a Windows Central account and respond to this thread.

Can someone help please?  I literally just got my Flex 3, with Windows 10 and it won't wake from sleep.  I have to hard power it off then restart it.  I have read forums and changed all my settings so that it neer goes to sleep, or I hybernate it, or just turn it off when I am done, but that isn't really a solution, it's just a bandaid.  I also read about updating the intel graphics drive, which I did and it fixed it for about a week but now it is back to the same thing and won't wake from sleep.  Can anyone help please?  I love my Flex but not waking from sleep is quite annoying as I don't want to just leave my computer off or on at all times.  I use it frequently and don't want to have to shut it down or just leave it on every single time I don't use it.

Can no one help?

A quick comparison I did today between nearly identical machines reveals that Windows 7 might take longer to sleep and wake (unless I've got a hardware issue).

A recently purchased refurbished HP computer running Vista with 8GB DDR3 RAM, an AMD Phenom II X4 910 processor, and a 1TB hard drive. Sleep mode activates fast -- about 6 seconds. The computer wakes in less than 5 seconds.

Today, we got essentially the same computer (same specs), but the newest version with Windows 7 preinstalled (long story about why we needed another one). Sleep mode on this unit takes more than three times as long -- 20 seconds, while waking takes just over 10 seconds. (Plus, both sleep and wake are "louder").

I'm very curious to know what might account for this. I expected basic Windows 7 functions to be faster, or at least equally quick. (By the way, I compared both with the same program running -- just Windows itself and Firefox.) A slower sleep time isn't necesssarily an issue, but just something I noticed and am curious about (as I tend to keep my PCs in sleep mode and don't shut them down).

My computer running windows 8 and it cannot wake from sleep most of the time. When I built this computer last year, it can wake from sleep 9/10 times. However, now, almost every time I try to wake my computer from sleep, it crashes. This is what I notice when the computer is about to crash when waking from sleep: Power button is pressed, GPU fans and direct PSU connected fans spin up. Fans connected to Mobo do not spin up. Power button continues to blink even as if still asleep.

I strongly suspect it's the Mobo that is causing the sleep problems. The Mobo have been dropped and 6 out of the 10 sata ports do not work properly. I tried different bios versions and the latest version, and reset all values to default( no oc, xmp), and sleep problems still exist. The PSU and GPU have been tested with another setup with no problems. I tried another operating system and same sleep problems exist. Windows mem. diagnostics passed. Before I go out and buy a new mobo, I want to be 100% sure that my problems are caused by my current mobo.

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

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

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

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

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

Answer:Windows 7 fails to wake up from sleep

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

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

Hello,

So my problem is that I have upgraded to Windows 10, on a system previously running Windows 7. My system, since Windows 10 has been out, has been unable to wake successfully from sleep.

What happens is that I can "wake" it with the mouse and keyboard, it beeps, revs, all that jazz, but then it hits its idle state and the monitor never detects a signal during this time period. The only way to resume function is to hold the power button and restart.

I contacted Microsoft, and they tried to suggest I pay for support when their OS is responsible for breaking this functionality, not user configuration. I know this, because it didn't work on the vanilla install of Win10 either, despite working flawelessly on 7.

Now, for the details:
OS: Windows 10 64x Pro
Mobo: Asus P8Z77-M
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 2x 8-8-8-24 1600mhz
Intel i5-3570K
Evga-Build NVIDIA 660ti 2GB DDR5
PSU: Corsair 650W... can't remember precise make.

What I have tried:
- Clean install
- Restore Point
- Manually setting graphics PCIE in BIOS
- Win10 Compatible BIOS updates (done with two separate BIOS's post-win10)
- Chipset Updates (only one Win10 one released)
- Windows Updates (Current version)
- All driver Updates
- Edit Power plans for sleep and Dev Manager enabled virtually all devices with the option to wake the computer
- Cables switched out, all are functional

Hi. I have a home built HTPC running Windows 8 with Windows Media Center. My sound card is a Silverstone EB01 USB DAC (i.e., it's an external USB device). When the computer wakes from sleep, there is no sound. I can fix this by either (a) unplugging and reconnecting the USB connector or (b) disabling then re-enabling the sound device.

This is driving me and my family crazy. What's worse, it worked perfectly fine under Windows 7.

There are no drivers for this device, it's pure plug'n'play. In case it's relevant, the Device Manager seems to recognise it as a Burr-Brown PCM2072E.

I would be extremely grateful if anyone could help me fix this one.

Answer:Windows 8 not seeing USB sound card after wake from sleep

If it is in device manager, check it's properties and power savings for it. In power settings plan could be some settings for it to.

Hi, That's the question. I have my computer in my bedroom, so this is a real pain! The automatic maintenance is scheduled to 10am (I rescheduled it on purchase, when it annoyed the hell out of me at 3am). That one also still works and I'm fine with that. But it's just acquired without my permission a new wake up at 7am that I don't want - particularly when I wish to sleep in!! I recently installed iTunes, which coincided with the problem, but couldn't find anything on the program that suggested any type of maintenance time, nor does the powercfg (info I found when Googling to solve this problem) mention iTunes. I've tried Dr Google, which usually helps me solve problems such as this, but with no luck. See picture of power cfg. Can anyone help?

looking around the forums I see that the usual (and generally successful) fix for that is to update the BIOS if such an update is available from your laptop manufacturer's website (HP). Choose your country here for the appropriate HP support website:http://welcome.hp.com/country/w1/en...Be sure to read carefully any instructions regarding BIOS updates on the HP website, and the download may also include an instructions document on how to perform the update.

System spec is below.

The problem.

I pressed the circle button with the vertical lline in Vista (from pressing Start) This sent the computer to sleep or hibanate I dont know which. I cannot get the computer to come back on. The monitor remains black (no picture) and says no signal.

I have deprived the computer of power. This was achieved by unplugging it from the wall, and removing the power cable also from the computer.

I have tried restarting the computer but to no avail. I have also removed the keyboard and mouse when I try starting up. I have also tried, holding in the power button and then restarting.

No matter what I try still no joy. No signal on the monitor. The lights in all cases come on, on the base unit and I can hear fans spinning etc.

I have read about this issue in round about ways but all of the fixes seem to rely on actually being in windows.

Answer:Windows Hibernate sleep wake up problem

I would remove your video card and then replace it back it. Then I would watch it start up and see if anything wired goes on inside your case. If not and all looks good but there is still no monitor signal I would check to see if it is set to the right signal, the newer monitors have DVI VGA etc and you must properly select it.

If none of this helps I will look into it further.


In your specs you also say that you are using ati radeon 4870x2, a dvi card, but then you say under DVI cable "none"

After an upgrade to Windows 10, my HP Compaq 6005 Pro Small Form Factor will not wake up properly from sleep. After sleep, if I press a key on the keyboard or press the power button, I hear the fan and hard drive start up, and the monitor goes from completely off to on yet black (I can see a small difference, and the monitor reports that it receives a signal). But nothing happens, including if I press various key combinations such as those which would cause rebooting. Sometimes my mouse pointer is visible but usually not. If so, it will not move. If I hold down the power button, killing the power supply, and the press the power button again, the computer wakes up (not rebooting). As a history, this machine had a clean Windows 7 install, then a Windows 10 upgrade, then a Windows 10 clean install.  I have a vague memory that the computor originally went to sleep and woke up OK a few times, and now doesn't. However, my memory could be wrong. I have tried:* all Windows updates* using HP website for all relevant updates, including BIOS* display adapter (graphics card) update* Windows Power Usage Troubleshooter* turning hibernation off and on again in the command line (powercfg /h off and on) Any suggestions?With thanksKimock
