Windows 7: s3 sleep mode...

s3 sleep mode...

Hi, im having trouble with s3 sleep mode. Windows will go to sleep on either the first or second manual attempt. However it will not come out of sleep when bittorrent is running prior to putting the computer to sleep. If bittorrent isnt running the comp may come out of standby but sometimes doesn't. If it doesn't I have to unpower the power supply then plug it back in. Then the computer starts up and says "windows is resuming". Here's a couple of things that I have tried already:

graphics card has latest driver.
bios has latest firmware.
bios is set for s3 sleep.

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Are you able to run powercfg -energy from an elevated command prompt? If so, then please do that and then browse to C:\Windows\system32\energy-report.html.

Open the HTML and copy the contents and paste it here so we can have a look at this for you.

Regards,

Hi,

Thanks for posting that. Can you try the following, and post back the output?

In an elevated command prompt, please do this:

powercfg -h OFF ,and hit enter and then
powercfg -h ON, and hit enter.

This will turn off the hibernate function, and then turn it back on again. I'm hoping this "reset" will solve the problem. If not, we can call in the "big guns" on this.

Regards,
Golden

I ran those two commands and it seemed to have worked. Comp came back from standby even with bittorent running which has seemed to be the root of the issue. I will monitor this over the next day or so and see if it appears corrected. Thanks Golden for your expertise. - Mike.

We need to see if any Kernel-Power events are being logged - it sounds like a driver or service issue, but it'd be interesting/nice to see if the event log is logging anything.
