Windows 7: Computer immediately starts when entering sleep.

Computer immediately starts when entering sleep.

Hi,


This problem has started recently. Moreover, new software and drivers have not been installed. When I put my computer into sleep mode, it immediately restarts itself, and when it restarts, it produces the “Windows Did Not Shut Down Properly” error.


Thanks in advance!

Try to updating the drive for your motherboard. It also might be a problem with Windows 7 that might fix it when it is re-installed.

If you are referring to the BIOS, that is already updated to most recent.

Hi,
I tried all of the steps in the guide, and re-installed the operating system. Now, instead of the computer restarting, it refuses to enter sleep.
Thanks!

Can you System Restore to before it stopped Sleeping?

Then save a Win7 backup image used for this purpose if Restore points go away.

No, I tried all the steps in the guide listed above, including doing a system restore to a date when I know sleep worked perfectly fine. This is the frustrating part! Not even restoring it worked.

Might start looking for corrupt system files and/or malware.

At an elevated command prompt try sfc /scannow.
