Windows 7: PC in sleep mode will not respond to mouse or keyboard

PC in sleep mode will not respond to mouse or keyboard

I recently re-installed Windows 7 Prox X64 on my PC.
MB is Gigabyte GA-M875GMT-UD2h.
Now when I put PC into sleep mode it does not respond to the mouse or keyboard.
I have to use the power button which causes what looks like a boot up sequence but the says "Resuming Windows"
Nothing in the BIOS has been changed. The S3 setting for Mouse and Keyboard are enabled.

Not a train smash, but it is annoying.

Is this your Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. GA-MA785GMT-UD2H

Have you tried the 'Esc' key?

USB keyboard and mouse?
Are they enabled in the BIOS, 'USB Keyboard Support' and 'USB Mouse Support'?


EDIT: this is from your motherboard manual.

Yes, it is GA-MA785GMT-UD2H.
Please excuse my typo.

It all worked just fine prior to the reinstall, which was the only change.
Nothing in the BIOS was changed. It seems like signal from the keyboard and/or mouse is not getting through.
Yet the DELETE key gets me into the BIOS.
Have attached link to a shot of the relevant BIOS screen.

Do you use Hybrid Sleep? (in Power Options)
It sounds like your PC is not "Waking from Sleep", but it is "Resuming from Hibernate".

To test this
If you use Hybrid sleep, turn it off.
Put the computer to sleep.
Press the power button to see if it can wake up.
If it can't wake up, it should re-boot and display the "Windows did not shut down properly" message...

There is no Hybrid Sleep option available because I have Hibernate disabled.
There is no hiberfil.sys file on my system.
Yet it certainly seems that the system is hibernating since I assume that the "Resuming Windows" message only appears on return from hibernation.

I wonder if some update has altered how the command
C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep
operates

Curioser and curioser.

That is weird.

To see your available sleep states from an elevated command prompt enter
powercfg -a
