Windows 7: Machine won't hibernate?

Machine won't hibernate?

Hi there,

Put my settings like I usually do... screen saver after 35 minutes, display off after 1 hour and put computer to sleep after 2 hours.

However, when the 2 hours period comes, I hear an almost 'pop' noise from the computer and it leaps back into life and shows the desktop and starts all over again.

Any ideas what's causing this? Thanks.

I had the same problem and I think it was the USB selective suspend setting in Advanced Power options that needed to be disabled to stop it waking instantly after Sleep was activated.

I am pretty sure I read somewhere that hibernate (and sleep) do not work in Win7.
The recommendation was to turn them off and await a fix.

this is sounding to me like a chipset issue (most likely a driver issue) or a USB issue.....
(keeping from sleep working)


anykey i think you reffering to this?

Thanks for the link. Interesting comments herein.
One thing that was not mentioned is the fact that the machine will not shutdown. Clicking start>shutdown is useless. Pressing the restart or power button has no effect.
My only solution is to press and hold the power button for a count of ten. Then it shuts. Dead.

I'm having a different, but related issue...

My PC can enter sleep mode and it stays there (blinking power light, all fans off).
But when I try to wake it, it just doesn't wake. The pc turns on, fans start working, but I never get a screen, the monitor stays off. I have to reset it to get back from startup , where it gives me "windows did not shut down correcty" screen and I can start over.

It strange though, it happened lately. I used to put it to sleep and to bring it back on and it worked. On another 2 PCs I have, sleep works fine (1 notebook and 1 desktop). I disabled all the devices that could bring it back from sleep , now it only resumes with the power button. Still the same. Probably a clean install would fix it, but I'd like to trace the cause ...

Any thoughts?
