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

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

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.

My fax modem card is a Conexant D850 PCI V.92 Modem, and I have the most recent drivers dated 7/27/07, version 7.67.0.50. In Settings ... Phone and Modem Options ... Modems ... Properties, "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby" is checked ON. The MS fax service is configured to answer on zero or one rings.

And I have the same problems regardless of my Screensaver or Power Management settings. (The PC is NOT set to go into Hibernate ever. I have experimented with various settings for Standby, Monitor Off and Hard Disk Drive off, but the problem stays the same regardless, and also appears if I put the PC into Standby manually.)

My Dell BIOS version is A15, the latest for this PC. I have a choice of S1 or S3 for Standby, but the problems are the same regardless which one I choose.

What to do? If it's a BIOS problem, how can I fix?

Another post suggested I stop using ACPI for Power Management and let Windows run Power Management. However, there is no choice in Settings or the BIOS to do that, at least none that I have found.

More symptoms: On this PC I also have LogMeInFree version 4. Just recently, the problems with Wake on LAN and Wake on Ring seemed to go away, but I noticed that the PC was no longer really going to sleep during Standby. When this Dell is in Standby, its power light should blink. I saw that the light would start blinking but then go solid again, and although the monitor stayed dark, the PC certainly "felt" awake. So, I checked some of the log files in LogMeInFree and saw indications that LogMeInFree was reaching out for power every few seconds over and over. So all this past weekend, I exited out of LogMeInFree, saw the PC go into GOOD standby (blinking power light) but my Wake on Ring problem came back. I think the LogMeInFree problem is separate and had the perverse result of hiding my Wake on Ring and Wake on LAN problems, which return when LogMeInFree is off, but thought I'd let you know.

Thanks for your thoughts.

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

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

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

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

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?

Answer:Wake on Ring problem - Fax modem fails to wake PC reliably from standby

I may not be able to help, but I am curious - is this a dedicated telephone line?

If not, what services do you use, like call forward, messaging, call waiting, etc.

Or does the dedicated line have anything like that that you know of? (or didn't know of)

When my T400 system enters standby mode, I am unable to "wake" it up.  The crescent moon light indicates on the bottom of the screen but when I press Fn F4, the system will not respond.  Closing and opening the lid does not work.  The only thing that works is to depress the power button for 5 seconds, which results in all unsaved work being lost. I am running XP Pro SP3.  My Windows Updates are current as of 9-7-2009.   My version of ThinkPad Power Manager is 1.46.  My model number is 2765-T6U.  I used to be able to control power settings from within Windows, but now it appears that Power Manager is overriding.  When accessing Power Manager from my least-priviledge user account, the scheme is blanked and the OK button is greyed out, so I'm not able to save changes to the power settings.  When entering through Fn F3, I have the same problem.  When I log in as a local administrator, I can change settings, but they do not apply to my user account. Any help would be very much appreciated.

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

hi all,My V560 is not waking up after entering sleep/stand by mode automatically. screen remains black. usb is not working. hdd indicator light is on.i have to press power button long till force it to power off. i am using win 7 enterprise 32bit.

Answer:V560 cannot wake up from sleep/standby

hey azad,place your unit on diagnostic mode via msconfig. restart your unit, login and do not launch any program.if you have set your unit to go into sleep/standby after a period of time; let it do so.once it is in sleep/standby , leave if for about 5 mins before "waking" it up.can it wake up ? if yes, then it is a program you launch or a non-windows item that is launch in the background during startup that is causing the error.if possible, go to >>http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_list.aspx?CategoryID=607595and update your unit accordingly.

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

Can anyone advise how to proceed? Thanks.

I have a R30208DY Desktop PC running Windows 10 in 64 bit mode with a VGA monitor and an HDMI monitor connected to the motherboard. All was fine until my Intel Graphics driver was updated. After this the VGA monitor failed to wake up after sleep. I spent some time several months ago with assistance of the Intel support forum investigating this. It happens even if I run with the HDMI monitor disconnected. I tried numerous versions of the Intel drivers, but the only version that works after 4300 is 4424. I decided to try periodically to see whether newly released drivers have solved the problem, so have just downloaded the latest drivers from the Intel site and from the Lenovo site and found that they still have this problem. I can reinstate the 4424 driver if it gets inadvertantly updated, but would like to think that someone at Intel recognises that there is a problem and is looking to provide a new version that repairs it. Is there any feedback to Intel from this support forum to initiate this process?

My laptop awakes from standby spontaneously even though I didn't set any program to wake it up. I noticed that if I disconnect it from the broadbank cable it doesnt wake up anymore. I also noticed that the programs which wake it up are mostly related to internet use like firefox, Tor browser and some windows related processes. Even if I stop those programs I still get that problem. How do I trouble shoot that?

Answer:Trouble shooting a wake up from standby position

Okay, Go to your device manager, go to your network adapter, right click on it and go to properties. Now select the power management tab and un check "allow this device to wake the computer" DoneHope this helps

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.

In the last month or two, I have been experiencing issues when putting my T500 2081 (with dedicated graphics - currently using Energy savings mode, or integrated graphics) into sleep mode. In the first month or so,  the computer sometimes made a long sequence of beeps when I tried the wake the machine up, then computer then would restart and get stuck at a black screen. (A forceful shutdown was required to reboot the machine) (Power indicator on, sleep indicator off) Since then, I never got the beeps anymore, although it has progressed to just being stuck after the machine is awakened. (While the power indicator shows that the machine is on, the sleep (moon) indicator remains lit.)  A force shutdown was still required to reboot the machine. Now, it again has progressed to something totally different. When the computer awakes, the power will completely shut off for a second (it makes the same sound that is made when you forcefully shut down your computer),  then the computer turns on again, but gets stuck at a black screen. (Power indicator is on, sleep indicator off) Once again, a forceful shutdown was required to reboot the machine. If I were to look in the System event logs, it would see this whenever it freezes up after being awaken:"The last sleep transition was unsuccessful. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, failed, or lost power during the sleep transition." Interestingly, the computer would only freeze ... Read more

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.

I forgot to let you know about how was the issue: - When we leave the laptop for about 45 minutes or more than that, and we wake it up, the windows showed the "this computer is being locked by <account> only that account or Administrator can unlock" etc... - Then we press Ctrl + Alt + Delete, and then nothing happens, only a blue screen without anything, the only way that we have to do is hold the power button until the laptop is off then back on. and I fixed that problem via uninstalling all of the Fingerprint softwares. I hope that LENOVO or IBM can upgrade the software and fix that bug.

After wake from suspend scaling is way off, everything is tiny... I figured it might be the video driver so I went to Intel and used their detect utility and I downloaded the exe, ran it and it said not compatible, go to the PC mfg. Asus does not list any graphics drivers for 8.1, only 8. So I can't use suspend, must do a full shutdown and restart. How can this be fixed? Can it be fixed?

This is a clean preloaerd of Vista32 and all updates have been loaded via System Update and Windows Update. I have tried with and without ThinkPad Power Manager. The PC reboots instead of waking from suspend 95% of the time, once in a while it will simply hang with a blank screen and forces a cold reboot. Suggestions?

I just added a MS wireless keyboard. Is there a way to wake up the Portege from standby from this keyboard? Now I have to open the lid and use the power button on the notepad. Before, I had settings that put the notepad in standby when I closed the lid. I changed that setting to do nothing when close the lid.

The notepad is set to go to standby after 15 minutes of non-use. This works fine but when I want to use it again I can't find a way to wake it up without opening the lid and using the power button.

Answer:Wake Up From Standby

I have read your posting 5 times now and I believe I have understand what you wrote but I am asking myself how you want to work on your Portege if you do not want to open the lid????:|

You want to use notebook with closed lid or what? Do you use external display?

yes, another question on this common topic. i searched the archives, but couldn't find a topic that was exactly like mine/supplied an answer.

i have winxp pro. standby works fine if comp is in standby for a few minutes, but won't wake up after 30 min. or so. no response at all. no h.d., no monitor, etc. i have to shut off and reboot.

all power management settings are set to 'never', except for the "computer sleep" button (which is actually on the keyboard) which is set to 'standby'. in the bios the only power management setting is what to do in the event of power failure: either 'stay off' or 'reboot'. i have had it set to 'stay off'.

so, any ideas why standby won't awaken after extended time?

thanks.

My T41 won't wake from standby if it is on AC. Everything works fine on bettery, though. If by accident I forgot to unplug before I open the lid, the computer will not wake at all. The power button also doesn't work any more. The only solution is to take out the battery and then put it back in and then re-boot. Of course, that way, everything unsaved will get lost. Anyone has seen this before? Thanks!!

Answer:T41 Won't Wake From Standby on AC

It can be a BIOS problem? Update to latest version available. Best regards.

Question: wake from standby

We have A57 9704-ALU Thinkcentre desktops.  I can use wake-on-LAN(magic packet) to wake these PCs up if they are shut down, but even though the the network card (Marvell Yukon embedded) properties are set to "Allow this device to bring out of standby", I cannot use a wake-on-LAN magic packet operation to wake up these PCs when they are in standby mode.  We set standby to "Never", but if the electrical power goes off, sometimes the power options on these PCs apparently get set to a power mode where "go to Standby after 20 minutes" mode is activated. It will wake from standby with mouse or keyboard activity.  I need to have these PCs up all the time (overnight) to allow patch installs, virus scans, etc. run.  Also so I can remote desktop into them for whatever reason I deem necessary. I see no settings in the BIOS (51KT37AUS) that refer to standby mode.  The network card is 88E8056.  The network driver is version 10.62.1.3.

Answer:can't wake from standby

u have to be a bit more elaborate with your explanation. does the whole system actualy wake up ? can u hear fans spinnin HDD working lights on keyboard/mouse/PC leds? but nothing on the screen?

if thats the issue one other member here i just read about said it was his graphics card drivers..he rolled back one and problem seem to have gone.

with me, i started having that same problem with my older comp. it wouldnt wake fully from standby like mentioned above...screen black. but this only happened after i installed a new PSU. and updated to drivers to my card. then i started to get CMOS errors on startup and couldnt even reset BIOS or anything...5year old Mobo....so i abandoned and build a new machine..

only thing i carried over was my PSU (Antec Earthwatt 500) rest is all new. with XP home sp2. i had this problem once and it was even worse..

my system was attempting to start from standbuy ..(Lights on an everything) but after 6sec or so it would shut down (or go back to stanby) briefly -for 2 secs- then start back up...then off then on again..it kept doing this till i manually reset it....no errors no nothing.

hasnt donne it again since then. but i switched my PSU cause according to PSU calc i need 490W and im at 500max with the Antec. since im going Crossfire ill get a 750w+.

How to use power from USB port while it goes to standby/suspend mode. When I go to device manager- USB root hub- right click - properties -power management tab, the option "allow this device to wake computer" is inactive. But "allow this computer to turn off this device to save power" is active and unticked.

Answer:Make USB port powered while suspend/sleep/standby

The OS doesn't have that kind of control over the hardware. The USB port in question has to be setup in the hardware for this particular application. You need one of these:

I have a T61 running WinXP, with 4965AGN mini PCI-E WiFi card.From the device manager, the WiFi card shows that it could bring the laptop out of standby. I checked the "Allow this device to bring the comptuer out of standby" box and restarted the laptop. Upon sending a WoL (wake-on-lan) magic packet with the laptop running, I can verify that the packet is received by the T61 (used both Wireshark and a WoL sniffer to verify). Nevertheless, upon putting the computer in standby, the magic packet fails to wake up the machine. I tried the WoL procedure using the wired LAN and it was working, it fails for the WiFi network though, even if the 4965AGN should support it (if the is enough power in the PCI bus). I tried using dumppo to reduce the sleeping state to S1 rather than S3, to no avail. Does anyone have experience with this kind of problem, or have solutions to suggest ? Thank you,Andrew

Hi,

Basically my PC is refusing to wake itself up from hibernation (or standby) as it has done in the past. It seems like the actual task I schedule to run DOES run, but the PC stays in either hibernation or standby mode and doesn't bring itself to life. I've tried searching the Net but I haven't had any luck finding a solution so I thought I'd ask here!

I did have to restore my C: drive from a backup a few weekends ago as I installed Kaspersky AntiVirus and it basically made my PC unusable so I ended up formatting the C: partition and restoring it from my backup (going back to avast! in the process). However everything else seems to be working OK so I don't know why it's refusing to wake itself up! :-(

I'm only doing what I used to - using Scheduled Tasks and ticking the box 'Wake the computer to run this task' - but it's not working. The same tasks run fine while the PC's in 'normal' mode and my laptop has no such problem waking itself from hibernation either.

I really need to get this fixed in the next week as I go away on holiday on Friday and want to use the PC to record programmes while I'm away.

System details as follows:

Hardware: Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 3800+ 2.00 GHz, 2 Gb RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS, ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe ACPI BIOS Revision 0706 (21/08/2006)
Operating system: Windows XP Home SP2

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm thoroughly stumped at the moment!

Thanks
Steven

OK I sure hope I am posting in the right area. Anyway, I will continue with my problem.

So, a few days ago, my Crucial RAM decides to have issues so I have to replace them (went to NCIX and they exchanged them no problem). Later that day, everything was working fine so I was quite happy. Now a few days ago, I was in Vista 64bit, and the PC automatically went to sleep when I was asleep. However, when I tried to turn it back on, it wouldn't come out of its sleep and I had to restart the PC with a message on the bios saying "Last BOOT failed! Something about POST something lol" So I thought to myself just to load set up defaults. Then I booted into XP no problem. Now yesterday, I had my PC on all night, then I woke up this morning to see that my mouse wasn't making my monitor come out of standby. So I wondered what could be the issue and decided to restart the computer. ALL OF A SUDDEN, I hear this long beeeeeeeeep that didn't stop until I shut down the PC! I almost ripped my hair out at this point. So I tried a few times to boot it, and eventually got it to almost boot to XP except got BSODed with 0x00000044. So I cleared CMOS by removing the battery and doing all that jazz. It seemed to be fine until later when I was in XP, I got the 0x0000007E. So I ran memtest86 and there were no issues.

Hello to all. I've been struggling with the problem of my computer resuming from standby when I don't want it to. I'm running XP Pro SP3. What I want is for the computer to go into S3 state - fans off, hard disks off, session saved to RAM - and stay there until I press a key. But when I put it into Standby, it wakes up after a period ranging from a few minutes to an hour or so.I've followed all the advice one finds when searching the forums for this problem. I've done the usual checks of the BIOS settings and USB device settings. The next step seems to be to find any resident process that sends commands that cause the system to wake up - for example, I disabled Norton Antivirus's LiveUpdate feature. That seemed to work for a while... But the problem always returns. I've run antivirus and malware scans. I even tried disabling AutoSave in Word and automatic e-mail checking in Outlook Express (these are the two applications I have running 95% of the time - plus FireFox). Still no happiness...But then I got to thinking: Maybe I'm missing the whole point of the thinking behind the S3 standby state. To me, logically, when I put the system on Standby I want it to stay that way. I want it to do things like check for updates and e-mail when it's running, which to me means after I press a button - be it the ON button or a key on the keyboard when it's in S3 state. I don't want applications deciding when to wake the system up, unles... Read more

Hello,

Second time posting here. 1st time was successful

The problem I've got now is that my monitor refuses to wake from standby mode anymore. Been running the system 24/7 for long time, in and out of standby, with no trouble, then it started as intermittent issue a couple of months ago and now appears to be perminently unable to wake up. I am forced to cold boot the power button on CPU and restart. I have checked power management settings - tried changing them - and still no go. The CPU will wake fine but the monitor stays in "power saving mode" (amber light on front panel). I've tried deleting the monitor in device manager and restarting but still no luck.

Any ideas? Could this possibly be a video driver issue?

Thanks

I would like to wake from standby with the mouse.  Windows XP and USB mouse.  In Mouse Properties, I have selected "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby."  However, I see nowhere in the Power Options Properties to activate this function.  Something I'm missing?

Answer:Wake from standby via mouse

Is it a usb mouse? If so, I believe if you change the setting in power options to disable selective power saving to usb devices it should solve your problem. I'm not 100% certain because I've never used sleep. Instead I just set the hd and display to power down after a defined period of inactivity. It's easier on your system, uses fewer resources, and is fail-safe (compared to sleep & hibernate which can sometimes be problematical for many users).

To start with, I have already read on this forum dozens of threads and replies dealing with this issue.
My problem is, more or less, the same, but let me give a little bit more detailed picture.

1) At first, my computer wouldn't even go to standby and hibernate (Windows 2000), giving an error message that the driver on the standard keyboard is preventing machine from entering standby.
I've tried so many things, updating the drivers and so on, but nothing helped, until I accidentally bumped into an article listing software which, when installed, could be causing this problem.
In my case, it was Adobe Fonts. The moment I uninstalled it, the machine started going into hibernate and standby without any problems. However, although I haven't had any problems with the hibernate feature, the machine would stubbornly be refusing to awake from standby.
So, at this point, you guys there sweating with updating the drivers over this problem, know that this might have nothing to do with updating the drivers, it could very well be one of the software on your machine, causing it. Unfortunately, I can't find this article anymore. Has anybody else seen it, by any chance?

2) Unfortunately for me, a few days ago I installed an incredibly stupid program for encrypting Emails (PGPfreeware 7.0.3 ) which adds on some absolutely irremovable network drivers, completely preventing the PC from browsing and sending / receiving messages. http://download.com.com/3000-2144-4880518.htm...

I received my X301 on last Thursday, and really like this computer. Over the weekend, however, I noticed a recurring problem. It seems to be unable to wake from standby when connected directly (not using the port replicator) to an external monitor. I tried different combinations of entering standby:1. Shut off external monitor, then go to standby;2. Leave monitor on, then go to standby; I am using extended desktop for the display properties. When not connected to a monitor, it seems to be OK. I had selected the option to do nothing when closing the lid on the laptop, but changed that when I noticed this issue. It did not seem to make a difference. I have to hold the power button down and shut off the computer to re-boot. When I open the lid, the message on the screen is something like going into standby, but it should say, coming out of standby. Regardless, nothing happens. I do not think I have password protected the machine. I may have, but also think I deleted this because I thought that could have been causing the problem. At start up, I do not have to swipe my finger, nor enter a password. My OS is XP. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Hi, and thanks in advance for your help! I'm using Windows 7 64 bit.

My computer is several years old, and just a few weeks ago started having a problem waking from standby. Up until now, it had no issues going into and coming out of sleep.

Now, whenever it goes to sleep (whether due to inactivity or putting it to sleep manually), it won't wake up. The lights come on, the fans come on, but the monitor stays in standby. I've looked around online and found that many people get a black screen when booting up, i.e. the monitor comes alive and they may get a mouse cursor, but that's not what's happening to me. I don't get a black screen--my screen is never getting a signal from the computer. I have to do a hard reset, after which I get the 'Start Windows Normally' screen.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the graphics drivers, changing hybrid sleep settings, using hibernate instead of standby, uninstalling random programs, etc, to no effect. I don't think I had any major windows or driver updates that caused it.

Any ideas??? It's driving me crazy. I'm getting to the point of trying a clean windows install... but what a pain that would be.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

To start off, my phone has been randomly restarting. The restarting seems to have started after the anniversary update version 1607. There's nothing common between one reset to the next, just that they become more frequent as battery life reduces (starts at around 80%). This is also sometimes accompanied by a streak yellow across the screen. I don't know if this is relevant or not.
My second issue, which has been happening the longest, is that the screen will sometimes be completely off when I wake up the phone. I will put the phone into sleep with the power button, and when I wake it up with the power button the screen is black. I know the phone is awake because windows hello will try to sign me in. I have reason to believe that the touch digitizer is also still working. This is fixed either by trying to sleep cycle the phone or by holding down the power button until the phone prompts me to power it off. This seems to wake the screen up. the screen also sometimes wakes up when windows hello signs me in, but this is rare. This problem has become less frequent since the anniversary update.
My third problem is that sometimes the touch digitizer doesn't work on wake. This is similar to my last problem, except that it always goes away by sleep cycling my phone. This problem has also become less prominent ... Read more

Hello. I'm looking at this laptop: http://www.dell.com/us/p/inspiron-15-3542-laptop/pd?oc=fncwg2327b&model_id=inspiron-15-3542-laptop

I would like to know if it has wake on LAN and wake on RTC or not.
 

Answer:Solved: Dell Inspiron 15 3000 Series - Wake on LAN & Wake on RTC?

Since I did not get an answer here, I went ahead and ordered the machine anyway, and took a chance. It does NOT have either feature in it.

It passed my other tests, so I'm keeping it and the next computer I get will probably have both of those features, but for this one, I guess I'll live without, since the network isn't finished to the point where I could actually use it anyway yet.

You could try going into the BIOS to see what wake up events are enabled and make any necessary changes.

My PC is an HP with Athlon 64 X2 processor running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. Recently it's started failing to respond after it's gone to sleep or standby -- whatever it does when there's no activity within a certain time.
Today, for example, I left it while I had lunch -- about 40 minutes -- and when I came back the screen was blank and the PC's power light was on. Moving the mouse I heard a momentary hum as the HDD started up, but then the HDD light didn't flash, and there was no response on the screen. Hitting any keys, including Ctrl-Alt-Del or Esc didn't wake it up either, and pressing the power button didn't shut it down or wake it up. My only recourse, as on previous occasions, was to power off at the mains wall switch for a few seconds.
When I re-powered it, it eventually came up with a Cortana screen asking me if I like the image (that's not my normal startup screen), and then prompting for my password. It then started up exactly where I'd previously left off.
Any idea what might be going on here please? I've scanned for malaware, and it's behaving quite normally in all other respects.

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

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

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

Files uploaded in the attached zip:
. Windows warning after reboot
. Windows dump and xml files (2 = 1 each)

I wanted to correct the thread title, but was unable to do it. Maybe someone else can do it.

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

Long story: Same hardware previous installation of XP suddenly stopped functioning when wife would log in at console, but would function fine via Remote Desktop. Her account was an Administrator account, but the 3rd account created overall after "Administrator" and my own account. If she logged into the console the desktop would function for some random amount of time, typically less than 10 minutes, and then suddenly the display would go into standby and nothing short of a hard reboot would bring it back. If I logged inat the console there was no problem, I could sit using the desktop for hours with no sign of standby.

To resolve the issue I finally resorted to a fresh install of XP SP3 on a new HD. I created teh user account in the same sequence 1. Administraot (Created by default) 2. Me 3. Wife
Now on a fresh install with all post SP3 patches installed, and only drivers from Windows Update the machine is exhibiting the same behavior. Any account I create as an administrator, other than my own, will run at teh console for some short amount of time and then the display goes into unrecoverable standby. Some of the time when this happens it is merely the display being nonresponsive and I am able to log in via Remote Desktop to my account, not her's, and operate normally. Other times it acts as if the entire machine went into standby but the system does not power off all the way, system LED still lit but otherwise no response at console or via network.

Brandnew Satellite A100-775 (multiprocessor dual core 2) will not wake up from standby by incoming call or fax (ISDN Controller:
AVM FRITZ!X USB with corresponding power management features).

BIOS and hotfixes are up to date, motherboard already changed by Toshiba service.
In devive manager there`s no tab "power management" for this network adapter. Apart from this, standby and hibernation generally work.

On my Satellite 1110 everything is working fine.
Is it a special problem with DC or whatever?

Hi everybody out there!

No idea from the outer world? Possibly it might be a problem concerning the power status of the notebook:

Any ideas all over the world?

Thanks!

Answer:Satellite A100-775 will not wake up from standby by incoming call or fax

Hello

Unfortunately I have no much experience with faxing and I do not use AVM FRITZ!X USB but I can recommend you to check USB device properties and see if option called ?Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby? on the Power Management property dialog in Device Manager is activated.

Not sure if this is an XP issue or with the chipset/MOBO. I've never encountered a computer that would not wake from standby by pressing a key on the keyboard or moving the mouse.

Anyone know how to get it to do so? SiSoft Sandra says this is an HP VLi8, and that the chipset is an Intel 82443BX/ZX 440BX.

I'm using a PS/2 KB and a PS/2 mouse on it. A USB KB does the same thing...no wakey.

Hey,

If you go into Control Panel > Keyboard > Hardware > Properties > Advanced Power Management, do you have a checkmark next to the box that says "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby"?

This should be enabled by default, but just in case it isn't....

Otherwise, you could go to the HP website and see if there is a BIOS update or other software patch available that might correct this problem; Could also check their support documentation to see if this problem is discussed.

I know that some older machines do not support ACPI, so that might also be the case...

Hi everyone,

Since a few days my Satellite Pro A100 automatically wakes up from hibernation mode
(and last night from standby mode too)

I don't have any Wake-up features (like LAN or USB) en, as far as I am aware, these features aren't even present in my current BIOS version (1.50).

The wake-up typically occurs with no peripherals or LAN cables connected.

I have used hibernation mode without any problem for over two years on this notebook.
Therefore I suspect it to be a hardware issue, e.g. something related to the power button or the lid-closing button.

Is there any way to completely disable the lid-closing button? PowerSaver allows you to disable e.g. hibernation on closing the lid, but I don't seem to be able to DISABLE wake up on OPENING the lid.

Thanx in advance for any suggestions or comments

My U300 has some charging issues. If I connect the charger while in sleep mode, then wake up the laptop it stops charging, even though the adaptor is still plugged in. The battery icon tells me that it is charging but the battery percentage decreases. And there's no warning when it hits empty, it just cuts out.

I think it also has the same when I'm charging it running state and then switch to hibernate mode. It doesn't appear to charge even though the adaptor is still plugged in.

Answer:Satellite U300 stops charging when wake up from standby

To be honest I never noticed any similar issues with my notebook?
It looks very strange and here in the forum we could provide only some suggestions?

So firstly it would be advisable to update the BIOS. Sometimes the BIOS update makes wonders ;)

How about the Vista update? Did you always run the OS update?
From my experience Microsoft publish many hofixes and patches which fixes many different issues?

Last but not least we should not exclude an hardware issue.
In such case the last would be the ASP!

I have installed Windows XP on my P200D-128 laptop.
Everything seems to be working more or less ok. The XP install seemed to find most of the drivers it needed over the net, the only driver which is 3rd party is the HD2400 driver from Omega Drivers.

The problem I have is that if the machine powers itself down due to being idle, when you power it back up the display doesnt come back on and the machine seems to be frozen.

Is this a BIOS or chipset driver issue?

Is there an ETA for the official XP driver set for the P200D?
I really have no interest in using the bloated mess that is Vista.

Folks, Like many of you I've had the dodgy DC connection problem and I've resolved this a while ago by re-soldering the errant joint on the jack to motherboard interface.

All was well with the laptop until yesterday when I tried to get the machine to wake up from standby / hibernate mode whichever it is when you close the screen) and now all that happens is that the blue LED around the power button is illuminated, the CPU fan spins for about 5 seconds, the HDD light flashes once maybe twice and the DVD drive briefly spins up.

Beyond that nothing else happens... the screen is blank and the laptop is effectively not starting from the occasional whirl of the fan.

Is there anyway to perform a reset of some kind to get it to snap out of hibernate mode? I've read up about this on various other forums and have tried starting it without memory, without the HDD and without the DVD drive and still no life.

Any input is appreciated as I need this laptop to spring back into life again.

Thanks in advance

Answer:Satellite M30X-111 would not wake up from standby/hibernation mode

Hi there,

to wake the machine up you just have to remove the battery and the AC and let the machine stay for a couple of hours. After this, it should work again.
By the way: It?s sometimes a good idea to make a biosupdate, because maybe the problem is just coming from the bios.

Please give some feedback about your success.. :)

Answer:Satellite X200 - BSOD affter wake up from standby

Hallo Marko

It is not easy to say what the problem can be but I don't believe it is Toshiba issue. The fact is that recovery image and whole functionality with ?factory settings? is tested and everything should works fine.
The question is which applications you have installed after Vista installation. Maybe some of them don't want to be switched off and after waking up is simply ?confused? and result is BSOD.


Can you please tell me one thing: have you tested standby option with clean preinstalled OS without any additional software installed?

Hi all, I have this strange issue with my new T410 notebook which has secondary HDD attached via Ultrabay adapter.I am running windows XP (SP3), and have set password on both primary and the secondary disk drives (via BIOS). The initial booting works fine, presenting me two password prompts for both disks.However, when I go into the standby mode, and come back again, I see my SSD as a local disk D, butthe drive does not seem to be mounted (?) properly. It seems that the notebook tries to eject(?) the diskwhen it undergoes to standby mode, but unable to re-mount the disk back again. One thing that estranges me is that I once used T410 with Samsung SSD and this problem didn't happen. When Iswitched to Intel SSD, this problem started to occur... I am suspecting that the problem is related to intel SSD (mymodel no is SSDSA2M160G2LE), but don't know for sure. Does anyone have similar experience ?

Answer:T410 problem with Intel SSD on Ultrabay not remounting after wake-up from standby.

By the way, I have also tested this without the hard disk password applied, and the same problem persists, so this definitely has nothing to do with the BIOS password.

Depends on the NIC driver. Some of them you can go into is properties and disable "allow to power off" either in the NIC properties, or in the advanced power settings. If left on, then you can use wake on lan.

Noticed ethernet lite not on. Plug is clear plastic with white led normally on and on during startup.

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

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

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

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

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