Windows 7 SLEEP MODE FIX !

Computer Won't goto sleep ?
here is why and how to fix it

By default Windows 7 has media sharing turned on ( for xbox , ps3) ect

this pervents it from going into standby Mode

The Fix is Simple

Open control panel and goto

Power Options > change Plan settings > Advanced Power Settings


+Sleep
Allow hybrid Sleep > disabled
Allow wake timers >
disable/enable try both settings

+USB
USB selective suspend > ENABLE

+When Shareing media [ This is the critical one ]

Set to allow the computer to sleep

I still have problems with the Sleep/Hibernate modes. I'm going to set up a bunch of TV recordings for this weekend and just let it go and see how many BSOD I get. Maybe they will fix this problem with SP1.

Download the latest Windows updates!! I think they fixed the monitor off/sleep problem I was having. So far so good. Go the the 'My Digital Life' forum.

I think I have the latest updates but I still got a crash yesterday when I setup some shows to record and then left the system alone. I didn't get the BSOD but a complete system lock up.

I'll check out that Digital Life spot but I'm probably going to go back to Vista before the Fall TV season starts.

I had 2 successful Sleep/Wake events. Then it was back to the BSOD.

I give up.
