Windows 7: BSOD when computer set to go to sleep (hard drive?)

BSOD when computer set to go to sleep (hard drive?)

I am using windows 7 for more than a year now, and had zero problems with malware or blue screens or freezes.

Yesterday I encountered a problem in windows which started abruptly, where it reacts slow or just freeze for a minute, every few minutes.

Also it loads windows slowly (before reaching desktop).

Today this problem has stopped happening and windows reacted normal again, although I tried to set the computer to sleep, but got a blue screen, attached.

I assumed that the freezes were due to my 5 year old windows hard drive (also got an old data hd), as I dont have malware or memory problems or any other thing I could think of.

Now could you confirm this by looking at this bsod?

Any more information ask and I will post.

A couple of questions before we start, first I see that your running windows 7 enterprise, is this PC one supplied to you by the business / corporation that you work for. Second could you explain these entries in your host file to me please?:

Code:
# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#	127.0.0.1       localhost
#	::1             localhost
127.0.0.1  activate.adobe.com
127.0.0.1  secure.flashfxp.com
127.0.0.1  liveupdate.inicom.net

A custom build, with Asus P5E motherboard. For a desktop, hibernation is not a must. Disable Hibernate. A desktop uses power from the external source, not on the battery.

Your HDD partitions have a very little free space. It is certain that they will fail creating hiberfiles.

Back up some data externally.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
  • Double click to open it.
  • Click this button only:
  • If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Let us know the results.

What do you mean that for a desktop, hibernation ("sleep") is not a must? And should I really disable / not use hibernate? What should I use in exchange?

Again, what does this mean? I use a UPS, does it mean anything?

If indeed I should not use hibernate, it does not matter really, although if there really is a hardware problem with my HD, next time I should create a bigger partition for windows.

I use daemon tools for a long time and it did not give me any problems, so I doubt I should change it, and it wasnt the cause for the bsod, am I right? So I understand the real problem for the bsod remains undetermined? And I should just go with the feeling that the freezes are the HD's fault?

So what your saying is you came here asking for our help, and upon one of our BSOD Analysts giving you suggestions your not willing to try any of them?

I just wrote that the daemon tools suggestion is unlikely, and to the earlier quotes, I just did not really understand what the suggestions were?

Nothing. Hibernation is a windows function. Useful for laptops, conserves the charge of the battery. You know that laptops run on batteries which should be charged ... and desktops run by power coming from the wall's point?

No that does not mean anything about the issue, but it means that you are not computer savvy. UPS just backs up power for sudden powercuts, nothing else.

You asked for help with your data. As far as I have checked, there is no problem with your HDD. If you think it is faulty, change it. No confirmation is needed. Sorry I cannot say it is a HDD failure based on the supplied data.

It is your computer. You can do whatever. Who am I to resist you
A man attempted a suicide 10 times but nothing happened .... that does not mean that attempting suicide does not cause a death. Everybody having a little computing experience knows that how deadly Daemon Tools is for a system. Yes, it can cause the hiberfiles corrupt. At least 50% of the startup/sleep related BSODs are caused by Daemon tools. If you are happy with it, use it happily

Hard drive doesn't go to sleep
I set the hard drive to stop spinning after 4 hours of idle activity but it doesn't ever go to sleep. If I set the time interval to < 1 hour like 45 min then it will go to sleep. I'm not talking about the computer going to sleep/hibernating, I mean the spinning of the hard drive.
