Windows 7: System freezes after waking-up from sleep
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
What's the difference between sleep, hibernate, and hybrid sleep? Why can't I find the sleep or hibernate options on my computer? How can I prevent my computer from automatically sleeping or hibernating? How can I wake my computer from sleep or hibernation? Why does my computer not go into sleep or hibernation as expected, or why does it wake unexpectedly? I have a device that doesn't function properly after waking up from sleep or hibernate. Will sleep eventually drain my laptop battery? Is my data safe while my computer is asleep?
I did that, as well as disabling Windows update. But I still have the problem. Not only that problem though. When the computer sometimes does sleep, it won't wake up. The only way it wakes up is if I turn off the power from the back.
Then the computer will power on and say "windows resuming"
Is there anyway to fix this? I've been trying to use the sleep/hibernate function more as of late but it's become rather annoying cause it's not properly working.
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
It will also shutdown with inactivity. Previously using Vista, Sleep worked well.
Some actions proceeded smoothly, albeit slowly (my perception) but once the system just seemed to "go to sleep" (single instance of a 11.5 GB transfer) - nothing happened for several minutes and then Windows apparently locked up. Only way out was a cold reboot. Nothing lost.
Are there tricks to doing this more quickly? Does Windows not like big transfers?
Normal use is usually about 23% of 8GB. First time I awoke I was using about 20%. Second time I awoke I was using about 15%.
Right now, with my mail program open and IE open I am using 19% after 3 awakes from sleep. I am left to conclude something is not waking upon awake.
I know I can check the processes etc. Does anyone know an easy way to check why my memory usage decreases each time I awake? While I await your solutions, I'm gonna take a nap.Wake me when you have something.
I think. I have run powercfg and no requests are outstanding. Here are my current powersettings:
Balanced mode, turn display off 10 min, set computer to sleep 20 min Advanced mode, allow sleep after 20 min, wake timer enable, sharing media allow sleep
Something about page fault error but disappears to quick to read fully. After searching the net I discovered a report from someone who had tried sorts of things to prevent this...
I get a dirty shutdown and restart (prompting Windows' safe mode option) any time the system attempts to enter sleep mode--whether by the Start menu or by pressing the power button (which I've set to enter sleep mode).
I've asked Windows to produce a dump file in the event of a BSOD, but none have been created. I've gone through all driver updates I can think of, HP siteupdates, reinstalled the OS twice, etc.
I had some luck re-enabling the Windows 7 logon screen, which had previously been disabled. Worked for a few days, and I'm back where I started.
