Windows 7: Windows 7 freezes when I put laptop to sleep

16 Nov 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x86-64

Is that an upgrade disc or a full retail?

Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade DVD

I've tried many of the advice from googling and none of them work still.
My laptop is still clearly awake when i tell it to go to sleep, but the screen is off and it is unresponsive
If this helps, whenever that happens, this is logged in the event viewer:
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
Event 41 Kernel-Power

I am having the same exact problem as Chronic, and no one seems to know how to fix it... I wonder what's wrong with it? My laptop is fairly new; it's only a little over a month old.

From a m/soft support engineer answer:

"Not all power plans are available with all systems. In order to see what power plan is best for your machine, please do the following:
1. Click on the Start button
2. In the search field, type in CMD
(Right click on CMD "run as administrator")
4. At the command prompt, type in:
powercfg -availablesleepstates (and press enter)

5. The response will tell you what sleep states are available to you on your machine."

If u r at Uni - surely you are surrounded by computer geeks??

There is probably a setting in your bios or registry which is not set up correctly.
