Windows 7: Display / Sleep Issue

Display / Sleep Issue

So, I just built this computer and I've recently been experiencing an issue where my computer goes into sleep mode, but it won't come out when I try to "wake" it up. When I first press a button or move the mouse, the graphics card gets very noisy (like a computer normally gets noisy when it wakes up) but nothing happens. I have to turn the computer off and back on to get things back to normal. Just a note, but my computer is normally quiet -- even when I wake it up. This has happened a few times now. My drivers are up to date as far as I know. Any help would be appreciated.

As cloud says, give it a few minutes. Does it start up?

Starting up from sleep is a KNOWN issue. My computer does it. Not a clue how to get it to wake up. In the end, shutdown is usually better and not ALL that much longer.

It is not a fix I am anticipating. It seems that some people's computers work, some don't. My guess is that it is a hardware issue relating to how Windows starts it back up, but it also doesn't bother me much.

Better to shutdown everyday.

Microsoft has a tool called xperf that can be used to trace and troubleshoot issues with boot, shutdown, sleep, and hibernate. It's probably worth doing that now, because these problems don't fix themselves, as Lordbob has rightly said.

In your bios does it give you options for S1 or S3 sleep state?

If so you didn't read yer manual (properly?)

Stick it on S3 and see how you get on, otherwise sleep (non) starting is normally graphics driver/directX related problem - like not installed properly

have you tried turning off hybrid sleep in the power plan? (or turning it on if it is already off)

Since xperf doesn't have any drivers (it's just accessing the ETW tracing data already being logged in the system), that would indicate stress is causing problems with your system. Might actually be a clue, honestly.
