I had this problem with the RC

After I installed the RC my computer wouldn't go entirely asleep, it would start to and then "revive." It was my Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse that were keeping it from sleeping.

The only last thing I can suggest is what Ken had mentioned, disabling the password on wake, although I don't have it set that way. Maybe a combo is disabling that and resetting your password again my trip something off to be back to normal.

Have you patched your system with anything weird, or used a weird build?

its in power options. Choose your power profile, then go to advanced settings. You will see it listed there. Let me know how it goes.

External mic not working after sleep mode.
My mic doesn't work after I wake my computer from sleep mode. To get it to work, I have to unplug my mic, shut down all my applications that use a mic, plug my mic in, then restart the applications. It works, but it's a bit of a nuisance to do that every day. Is there a way to fix this issue?
