Windows 7 Restarts from Forced Sleep Mode
I would just like to start off by saying that this is my first post. So, thank you in advance for taking the time to read this.
As the title suggests, I am having issues waking my computer. I have read through numerous threads with this same problem, but none of them seem to be having the same issues as I'm having.
Upon trying to wake my computer from sleep mode (forced sleep mode), it will either freeze and has to be reset or it has already reset itself and is sitting on the start up screen where it says something like, "Continue with previous Windows session," or "Reset and start a new Windows session."
If I choose "Continue with Previous Session" it says, "Loading Windows," but before it gets to the username welcome screen it freezes and has a blinking hyphen in the top left corner of the screen. When this happens I need to reset my computer yet again and choose the "Reset and start a new session" option.
Any ideas what might be happening? I have updated my drivers and checked my ram with Windows Memory Utility.
Oh, and just today I was testing Sleep Mode. I put the monitor to sleep but couldn't wake it back up either. I could hear the computer running but the display would not turn on. So yet again, I had to reset the computer. Not sure if this was a coincidence or if it is related (which I'm thinking it is).
Now just some FYI's:
I can only use forced sleep mode because from day 1 of building this PC, automatic sleep mode has never worked. I have always used Windows 7 Ultimate since building this PC and have read on many people having this same issue.
OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1
Memory - 8GB
OS Hard Drive - Corsair 60GB SSD
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3
Thanks in advance!
