Windows 7: Sleep shuts down

Sleep shuts down

I am getting a curious error today.

Have made no changes to the system that could have caused it.

It goes to sleep for a couple of minutes - then turns off.

Never happened before.

I might have thought there was a resume object error - if it couldn't resume - but it never gats that far.

It just simply turns off after being asleep for a couple of mins.

Power options are as they always were.

Any ideas?

Im gonna ask a completely dumb question. Would that machine be the 7000x86 machine?

No mate, I am currently using 7137 x64.

Did you have something similar on another build?

I have used this for a long while without errors - strange.

I did have 7000 x86 on it a while back - but have deleted that and the bcd entries.

I had a similar problem that involved autohide taskbar and sleep on every build from 7000 to present. Sometimes it requires a hard reboot, sometimes nothing. SoLoR and I both have the same thing. There is some interaction between them. We both are 32bit though and I dont know if it happens in 64.

I had this problem a while back and it was caused by my wireless NIC card was holding the works up. I would uninstall and reinstall the latest driver and see if this causes it. If you go to the advanced Performance and tools option in the control panel, it may also show devices that are holding up sleep mode.

I'm just going to ask a obviously question...

Why are a lot of you posting these issues with old builds, when RTM is out?

Try upgrading, you have 120 days total trial, and in that aspect you can see if the issue is resolved. Instead of us trying to troubleshoot an issue that is possibly fixed in RTM.

Many people wait till official release so they can clean install, many others aren't pirates like yourself, and many others are on msdn and technet and want the real thing August 6th.

Wow thats a big assumption... thanks for the insult.

You don't know how I acquired my copy of RTM, nor do you know the status of my MSDN/Eco System membership.

But thanks for being ignorant about it.
