Sleep mode not working
 
Vista Ultimate 64x
SP1


MS updates are really a pain since they seem to stall all the time and
although I'm on a cable (8MB) connection it takes forever to download
even a small 1 or 2MB update. Then it takes a long time for the install
process to complete itself. I have 2GB of memory which is fast doing
other things but when the updates start, my system really drags until it
is complete.. ????

Whether it is coincidental or due to some other reason, after a recent
MS Vista update occurred, my computer fails to start in the normal
method after closing down using the Sleep (hibernate) option.

Prior to this happening, each time I closed down using Sleep, whenever
I wanted to start up again I would just move the mouse and the computer
would start up in seconds.

Now, when I close down using Sleep, when I try to start up again I
have to press the start button on the tower and it will go through the
full boot-up process.

I haven't installed any new programs; altered any default settings or
made any changed I am aware of to cause this to happen..

I did two different restores back to when I knew everything was
working alright but it still won't open from Sleep mode. It is really
frustrating.

My experience up to now with Vista Ultimate 64x has been very
satisfactory. A few minor problems but nothing to get upset over.

Hope someone can show me how to reset my system for Sleep
to start working again.

Thanks..

Did you check the power button behaviour (shutdown, sleep, hybernate) in the
power options in control panel?

Re: Sleep mode not working
 
I checked the Power Button behavior and it is set at
Balanced Performance.. I changed it to the other two
settings but that didn't take care of the problem.

I forgot to explain that when I select the Sleep Mode,
it will shut down but the Power Button will not restart
and I have to pull the power cord and plug it back in
where it starts a new bootup.

I also found that when I Shut Down and I push the
Power Button it works and the system boots up okay.
?????

Guess I'll just have to discontinue using the Sleep mode
and just Shut Down each time I leave the computer. Not
what I'd like to do but I guess that's life..

This is the only problem I've had with Vista Ultimate 64x..

Thanks for your reply..

RE: Sleep mode not working
 
Hello "Carlos":
I have a similar problem to Jack's. Vista HP 64 bit, Intel DP35
motherboard with no PS/2 connections so the keyboard and mouse have to be
USB. When the pc is put into hybrid sleep either by selecting that option or
when the pc goes to sleep automatically after recordings it does that
perfectly. BUT.........since the keyboard is USB it goes to sleep with the
rest of the hardware! I checked and the Microsoft Digital Pro keyboard and
mouse are "Vista Certified" but even though the Device manager shows "allow
this device to wake up the system" is checked they don't remain operable. I
checked in Device Mgr for USB settings for those 2 devices and the option to
"allow them to wake up the system is greyed out".
So, how do I wake up the system from Vista's hybrid sleep? I tried
setting the power button on the PC to "sleep". When I use that to wake up
the PC, instead of a rapid(almost instaneous) wake-up, I get a slow process
that first shows a screen saying "Windows is resuming" on a weird colored
screen and after about 30-60 seconds the system is fully awake. I have also
installed SP1 and all the latest updates available. This pc has an Intel
E8400 cpu running at 3 Ghz and that is a very poor response time for what is
supposed to be a quick process.
I tried re-installing Vista x86 version with the same "wake from sleep"
problem both before and after SP1. I then switched to a different graphics
card with the latest Nvidia drivers. No help. I ran Windows memory check.
No problem. There must be a way to resume from sleep without keyboard or
mouse input but I can't figure it out! Microsoft keyboard help says resuming
from sleep will work but only byusing a USB to PS/2 adaptor. No PS/2
connections! I don't know how they can call it "Vista Certified"!
I have an older Intel Motherboard with a Q6600 cpu and Vista Ultimate x64
and the USB Keyboard and Mouse connected with the PS/2 adaptor will wake that
system. On that system it resumes from sleep via keyboard/mouse in less than
5 seconds. Any suggestions on what settings might need changing?

I don't have a Intel system running to check the bios. All my systems
are AMD. In the bios S3 needs to be enabled and in my systems PS2 mouse or
keyboard are listed for wake-up but no USB devices. If your motherboard
doesn't have PS2 connections there may be a different option under power
options. Have a great day.

Re: Sleep mode not working
 
Hello Dennis:
Thanks for the suggestion. I have opened Power Options and changed what
Power Button does to each of the 3 options.....Shutdown, Do Nothing and
Sleep. This didn't solve inability to wake from sleep properly. I also
tried each of those three options for the Sleep Button without success. I'm
thinking about trying to find a different motherboard, compatible with the
E8400 cpu that still has PS/2 ports. Without the sleep/wake-up capability
Media Center is about useless to me.

Re: Sleep mode not working
 
Hello again Dennis:
OOPS! I did check the Bios and S3 state is enabled. The only Bios
settings for USB is to enable or disable USB and another to enable or disable
legacy USB. Both were set to enabled. In order to determine if something is
wrong with the board I am going to try installing the usb keyboard on our
other Vista PC and see if I can wake it from sleep using the chassis power
button. We also have 2 MCE2005 PCs which wake from sleep almost
instantaneously by pushing the chassis power button or either the PS/2
keyboard or mouse. Thanks for the help!
