Not Wake Up After Sleep / Hibernate - Turn Off Computer Then Unplug / Plug Into Power

Mar 22, 2013

So, I have a computer I built myself specs being: AMD FX-8350, Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3, AMD Raedon 7900 HD Series, 4x4GB 1600MHz, and Windows 8. I don't feel as though listing the other parts are necessary. Anyways, my problem is that whenever I leave my computer idle it goes to sleep. Only problem is, if it's for a long amount of time I can't wake it back up. I have to not only turn off the computer, but instead unplug it and plug it back into the power.

After Upgrade To 8.1 Pro Computer Lost Ability To Sleep / Hibernate

Nov 2, 2013

After my upgrade to 8.1 Pro my computer lost the ability to sleep/hibernate. After following many tips on here, I managed to get sleep & hibernation onto the shutdown menu so manual operatin works okay.

The automatic mode is still a work in progress but I'm wondering if I've managed to get it to go into automatic sleep mode but not as yet hibernation.

I prefer to use hibernation so don't really know alot about sleep mode - I've got it configured to go into hibernation (10 minutes ) before sleep (15 minutes) in the power options.

After a period of time the computer will automatically attempt to enter either sleep or hibernation mode - not sure which. The screen switches off and the cpu increases in volume as if its consuming more power. The blue light flashes slowly which to me signifies that it has entered sleep mode. The computer has in effect shut down but sounds like its in overdrive with either the cpu or fan going ten to the dozen. Clicking the mouse wakes it up and brings it back to the sign-on screen.

So what's going on here? Is this a failed attempt at sleep mode as trying manual sleep brings the same result. It certainly doesn't go into automatic hibernation which is something I'm ultimately trying to resolve.

So I'm not sure if I've solved automatic sleep or not as its unbearably noisy and not something I can put up with.

Acer M5811 - Unable To Wake Up Computer From Sleep Mode

Apr 2, 2013

My Acer M5811 will not wake up from sleep mode on intermittent basis. Running Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. Power settings are disabled for both the monitor and CPU. I have also disabled "allow computer to shut off applications to save power" to devices. I never had this issue until I installed Windows 8 (clean install) from Windows 7. I have updated all drivers but have had no luck. The computer will wake up successfully several times, then it will not wake up. It appears to start up but the monitor remains in sleep mode. The only way to fix the problem is to shut down the computer and then restart. Acer M5811, purchased May 2010; i760 processor; 8 GB ram, ATI Radeon 5570, 1TB hard drive.

Computer Not Staying In Sleep Mode - Wake Source Unknown

Jan 22, 2013

My computer cannot sleep!

I did a fresh install (upgrade) and the moment I got the desktop up and idle, I tried to put the computer to sleep. It did, then 5 seconds later, on it came again.

Event viewer says "wake source unknown".

I have updated all drivers from asus, and installed all windows updates. No difference.

I have used every tool POWERCFG gives, it's report is clean, there are no wake requests, all devices (mouse keyboard) have had their wake ability disabled, I have even disable ALL devices in bios, booted without a keyboard and mouse and still, it wakes as soon as it's put to sleep. Even with all on board devices disabled except for sata.

Wake source: unknown.

I boot into Win 7 from another hard drive, no issues.

One thing to note is that from a fresh restart, if i put it to sleep, it stays asleep. Once waked, it will never sleep again. Restart the system, leave for idle for ages, hit the power button; it goes to sleep and stays. After waking, it never stays asleep again.

I have tried safe mode. no difference.

I have disabled all services. I have changed all the power settings to disable wake timers and to allow sleep during sharing. Still no difference.

What's up with my Asus Z8P68-V Pro that disagrees with windows 8? All my other machines have no issue.

I have no choice but to keep using Win7 at the moment, I can't have a computer that doesn't sleep.

Acer W500 - Every Time Wake Up From Sleep Computer Needs To Reboot?

Dec 15, 2012

I'm having the same problem with my Acer w500 which uses mSATA SSD drives only. I have upgraded to a Mushkin Atlas 120GB V series SSD and obviously upgraded to Windows 8 (professional) and every time it wakes from sleep it says there was a problem and needs to reboot. I'm going to put the stock 32GB Sandisk SSD back in later today and see if the problem is still present. I do have the latest BIOS on this computer and the latest firmware on the Mushkin SSD, drivers are the latest from Acer and most are November 2012 dates. There are no BIOS settings on this computer, all I really get are boot order, AHCI or IDE mode, and a couple other trivial things so I can't change suspend to ram or suspend to disk settings. I'll make the changes to hopefully show the BSOD when it comes out of sleep so I can try to gather more info.

This was a "clean" upgrade install (do not keep any settings or applications) which puts all the old stuff in a .old file, it was a clean from restore disk win7 that was used as the base OS to allow an upgrade, and is the 32 bit version of Windows 8.

Windows 8 - Sleep Won't Turn Off Computer After Set Time

Feb 12, 2013

The display and the sleep feature timers do not work. I just did a complete restore to try and correct this problem and another problem, which was no restore points and no ability to create one. The restore points are working for now, I mean that I was able to create a restore point. The display and sleep timer, not so, still a problem.

I've had this desktop Windows 8 computer since November and honestly I don't know if this has been a problem the whole time or not. Definitely, not the display, I know it has worked, but the sleep timer I'm not sure. I set the timer and just assume it sleeps and then goes into hibernation after a certain amount of time. With all the refreshing and restoring and changing over to this computer, I've not been paying much attention to the sound of the fan or the missing orange color on the power button (not visible, on the side of the computer).

I've set the timer through the Power Options feature in the Control Panel to 10 minutes for the sleep and to turn off the display to 3 minutes. Neither of them respond after set times. The computer is still wide awake and the display is not gone.

I have also gone to the "Change Advance Power Settings" menu box and turned off the hybrid sleep, which didn't work, and the Multimedia Settings in this menu box to turn on the setting "Allow The Computer To Sleep". Neither of these fixes did anything.

How can the computer not respond to something so basic and fundamental to its design?

Lastly, I'm wondering how this idea of powering down works at all. What I would like is for the computer to sleep after 20 minutes and then go into hibernation after 45 minutes. This would be when I'm done for the day. I have set the hibernation time in the "Change Advance Power Settings" menu box, but of course that does not respond either.

Reboot From Sleep / Hibernate

Mar 28, 2013

So this isn't a BSOD but it seemed like the right place to post this. When ever I try to put the computer to sleep and then try to wake it up, it sits for a second like it wants to come back but then it reboots instead of waking up. Im really at a loss as what to do as I have never been very good at this debugging sort of thing.

I have included what i believe is all needed info but if you need something else I will get it.

Debugging :: Driver Power State Failure After Bootup / From Hibernate

Ever since I've built this computer and installing the latest drivers, I've run into a problem where the computer BSODs with a "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE" error, and it happens whenever it's been off or in sleep mode for a long time. I've tried looking up solutions and most say that a bad driver is the issue, but the device manager doesn't show me any problems.

how to alter the time period before a computer running Windows 8 switches into "Sleep" or "Hibernate" mode.

Laptop Doesn't Sleep Or Hibernate

Aug 9, 2014

I have a Dell Inspiron 17R 5737, running Windows 8.1.

my laptop does not go to sleep or hibernate. each time I close the lid, or press the power button it seems that it forcefully shut down or go to sleep/hibernate and then shuts down immediately "the shut down screen does not appear". When i start the laptop opening the lid/ pressing the button, it starts as if it were properly shut down.

I am aware of the options that I can adjust for sleep/ hibernate/ or shut down, when the lid is closed/ the power button pressed. the problem also exists when giving a "Sleep/ hibernate" order from the start menu.

I have updated the Bios " whatever that does", and several other drivers. I have tried running a "PowerCfg -energy" test on the command prompt, " several people mentioned that by using this test the found a driver that is requesting the computer to not sleep, but i found no such errors. i ran a few tests on to check for any problems but everything seems OK.

Also, when the laptop is sitting idle for a while and it goes automatically for sleep, it does not wake up by moving mouse/ clicking on the power button, I have to shut it down by holding the power button, then press it again to turn it on.

As I remember the problem first appeared after updating the windows from 8.0 to 8.1.

Hardware Drivers :: Win 8 RTM - Can't Sleep / Hibernate Or Shutdown

Aug 26, 2012

I just upgraded to Windows 8 Enterprise x64 RTM yesterday, and have noticed an annoying problem that wasn't present under Windows 7 Enterprise x64 (which I was running previously). Specifically, the machine will not sleep, will not hibernate and will not shut down. When any of the three are attempted, they appear to succeed, but then the computer will immediately wake up again. In the case of a shutdown, the computer will actually power completely off and then start right back up immediately. I never used to sleep the machine in Windows 7, but I know the hibernation used to work and certainly shutting down did as well, as I shut the machine down every night.

In the event viewer, I have a Power-Troubleshooter event (ID 1) every time the machine wakes back up from an attempted sleep, hibernation or shutdown, but it always indicates that the wake source is "Unknown." I have tried unplugging every single Ethernet, USB and eSATA cable from the PC until nothing was left plugged in but the monitors, audio out and AC power -- just in case a device was sending a magic packet or some kind of wake-up signal. Even so, I still experienced the same immediate waking problems on shutdown, hibernate or sleep.

I was able to solve the inability to shut down by disabling Windows 8's "Fast Startup" option, which as I understand it uses a kind of hybrid hibernation. Hibernation is not working properly on my system. At least with "Fast Startup" disabled, I can actually shut the machine down. It's a pity though because I really liked Fast Startup's performance.

I've tried installing the authentic manufacturer drivers for my chipset (Intel 975 / ICH7 series), onboard LAN adapters and so forth in case the generic Microsoft drivers were at fault. The specific driver installation seemed to work fine but my problem remains.

Full system specs are in my profile, but it's kind of an old box I put together in late 2006. Core components of possible relevance to this issue are an Asus P5W DH Deluxe motherboard and Seasonic S12 600W power supply. The motherboard is running the very latest BIOS revision (3002). My Windows 8 installation was an in-place upgrade of my previous Windows 7 installation; everything seems to be working fine except for the weird power stuff.

Here's one other thing I should note, which concerns me somewhat as it is related by definition. In the P5W DH Deluxe's BIOS, there is an "ACPI 2.0 Support" option which defaults to "Disabled". Back when I built the machine I left it alone so it has been disabled this whole time. During my troubleshooting of these issues earlier tonight, I decided to try switching it to "Enabled" to see if it would have any effect. It has not fixed the issues at all, but it does make me wonder. Is there any way to tell whether Windows 8 has correctly identified the system as being ACPI 2.0 compliant? I think I remember in the old days WinXP used to have to be completely reinstalled when that switch was flipped.

Additionally, and much to my consternation, I can no longer use Wake On LAN. I've actually fixed the WoL issue. I had to go into Device Manager, find my network adapter and get the properties of it -- then, on the Advanced tab, find the property called "Wake From Shutdown" and set it to "On". This must have been either a new property in the Windows 8 driver for my network adapter, or was reset back to Off for some reason when I did the Win7 -> Windows 8 upgrade.

Win 8 Goes To Sleep And Won't Wake Up

Apr 18, 2013

I try hitting the power button, nothing. I have to restart, it takes a long time to read the hd's in bios, then when it restarts there is no network connection, so I need to restart again.

No real pattern to this, sometimes I leave the machine on all night and no problems, other times just a couple hours and it happens.

I am also using a wireless mouse/kb if that makes a difference.

Debugging :: 3 Different BSODs When System Waking From Sleep / Hibernate

Apr 9, 2014

I've been having 3 different BSODs the last while. SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR, and SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. The bug check codes are 0x1000007e or 0x0000003b for the system_service_exception.

My laptop is running windows 8.1, it is an Asus G46vw. I've updated my video drivers, both intel and nvidia. I've updated other drivers that i can find updates for. I've run memtest 86+ 5.01 on both sticks of ram individually, and they both pass multiple passes. I've also updated my Intel SSD to the newest firmware.

The crashes happen when the computer is waking up from both sleep and hibernate. They have been more frequent lately (4 crashes the last 9 days). I've attached the files from sf diagnostic tool.

Debugging :: BSOD When Coming Out Of Sleep / Hibernate After Upgrade To 8

Nov 5, 2013

I've been using Windows 7 on my laptop for over a year now with little to no problems, decide to finally take the dive into Windows 8. The installation runs smoothly, and everything seems perfect up until I tried to come out of sleep mode. Whenever I try to come out of either sleep or Hibernate it starts to awaken then I get the BSOD, stating "Your PC ran into a problem it couldn't handle, and now it needs to restart " ...

After following the instructions to search "Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error", and finding answers that didn't work for me, I'm here now, months later, sad, tired and in need of this being fixed ....

Switched to Windows 8 (then to 8.1) from 7, BSOD when coming out of sleep/hibernate.

Dell :: Inspiron 17R Laptop Doesn't Hibernate After Sleep Mode

Mar 29, 2013

I have an Insipron 17R, core i5 zm2410, NVIDIA Geforce 525m, win8 64bit and I'm experiencing a problem with the hibernation/sleep mode.

About 2 weeks ago my laptop went to hibernation mode after beeing in sleep mode for 2 hours while on battery (to advoid full battery drain).

Now it doesn't do it anymore but stays in sleep mode for the whole time and drains the battery.

I usually detach the power cable from the laptop over night because of the noise from the power adapter and the laptop always hibernated after beeing in sleep mode. I went over the configuration in power options and power plans, and even reseted and configured them again, without success.

The only changes that were made to the system are the important windows updates...
