Windows 7: w7-64 video stutters after wake problem

w7-64 video stutters after wake problem

HI all-- hoping to see if anyone has any ideas on this...

I race a lot of online racing... I was on xp sp3... No stutters ever.. butta smooth... Did a clean install of Windows 7-64... If i do a full reboot--- everything runs smooth--- no sutters.. If I put the system to sleep-- then wake it and go race-- i get stutters every 1-5 seconds.. Its 100% repetitive...

All my video drivers or up to date.. I also tried older video drivers.. Turned off indexing-- turned off backup.. turned off anti virus.. Chipset for mobo is updated to Windows 7.. Took my oc back to stock settings... Did everything i could think of and or read about.. All with the same results.. Reboot-- fine--- sleep then wake --- stutters..

One thing i noticed was.. Before i put the system to sleep--- it was using 1250mb of memory.. Then right after waking the system--- it was only using 820mb of memory... So it seems like something isnt being woken up after sleep.. And whatever that is-- is the thing that is causing the stutters...

Do you have hybrid sleep disabled?

That ram thing is normal, they purge the ram so to speak. Really while your using it a lot of stuff is cached or put into active memory that isn't being used but will be soon. It's the same concept if you do a cold boot and always have less ram usage at start? Ever think of why? Same concept, even if before you boot you have no programs running you still have more ram use until after you cold boot. it's just how most OS's are designed.

Here is more information on sleep and hibernation, you can adjust your settings to disable sleep: Sleep and hibernation: frequently asked questions.

I guess what I should have said earlier was, instead of releasing all the ram after you close programs if windows is using some (like part of the kernel space is in ram) it won't release it until another program requests it. But if your waking from hibernation and windows has no need to use the ram yet it won't ask for it. That probably makes more sense than earlier.

Thanks Tara--- but i want sleep.. I just want it to work and not cause a stutter when I race after i wake the computer up.. I have also tried hybrid-- tried turning off some of features on the power area.. Tried just about everything i have read about.. My drivers are up to date though also tried older.. Chipset is up to date.. No matter what i do-- i get stutters after wake on both sleep and hybrid..
