Windows 7: Shutting down into Hibernate takes more then 3 minutes....

Shutting down into Hibernate takes more then 3 minutes....

Hi there,

I just re-installed my Windows 7, and I noticed that shutting the laptop down into Hibernate (which I actively have been using for the last 3 years orso) suddenly takes more then 3 minutes.

I have installed all the previous drivers and only a handful of the previous programs. I also have re-installed my laptop several times in the last years (because I like a clean computer ).

I use Boostspeed 8.0 to clean the laptop and it's Tweak Manager to improve the performance of Windows 7.
This has always helped me in the past to make Windows perform even better then normal.
I set the virtual memory file to 0 in the registry, turned of "using your harddrive as a bit of RAM", turned off all the graphic effects (like aero and such) and have very selectively turned off a few services and set other to manual.
I emptied the line-up at startup in msconfig, set the "choose which OS to boot up" to 1 sec.

I also read a few of Blinks topic on how to improve startup and shutdown.

Starting up takes about 20 to 30 seconds. Which is good in my opinion. But turning the laptop off takes a good 3 minutes. Sometimes even 4 minutes.
When I first discovered Hibernate, it only needed 20 seconds to shut down. But after a re-install I probably did something wrong, and it took much longer. I've played with it long enough, time to ask the guru's for some help. So here I am.
I use my laptop mainly to surf the web and to read mail. But every now and then I also intensively use Photoshop, Illustrator, Videostudio and a few programs like this.
I always shut down these "memory-eating" programs before going into Hibernate though.

I think I'm forgetting something somewhere, but I just can't seem to find it.
Hopefully I can figure this out with your help.

My laptop is an Acer Aspire 7740G (the only hardware upgrade is 2x 4GB DDR3 RAM)
My main programs are:
Google Chrome
Live Mail
Google Drive
Photoshop
Illustrator
Corel Videostudio
Windows own file-explorer
Daemon tools

I don't have any games or things like Netflix/Spotify etc.


Cheers, Vinnie.

Hello and welcome Vinnie first up run these I know you have down a clean install - that isn't to say it went ticketyboo

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1538-sfc-scannow-command-system-file-checker.html

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html< if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2 >in safe mode if need be
From a personal point I don't like those add on tweaking and performance type programs as you can do exactly th same with stuff from this site see this
Optimize Windows 7 (see point 22 for shutting down problems) & this Disk Cleanup - Open and Use
CCleaner if you don't have it already https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download < always download it from this site I don't like the mirror ones too many annoying add ons but you can stop those with Unchecky - Keeps your checkboxes clear

Thanks for the reply. I'm at work now but I'll try all the tops once I get home.

The advantage of Boostspeed is that I don't need it to run in the background. Just quickly do the tweaks and then close the program again.
I also have ccleaner which I run about once a month.

To be honest I think it's just a setting somewhere that I forgot, but we'll see after some testing.

Hi,

I started the test earlier today, but it only just finished. I used a defragmantation tool to defrag the disk first. Then did the CHKDSK thing.

It found nothing. (I took a photo, but then I realised that I'm Dutch and you probably can't read Dutch haha).

After a restart I pressed the power button, and going into hibernate still took 3.5 minutes. So way to long.

I'm now gonna take a look at the register again to check out that AutoEndTask etc.

You can go over Power Options and Sleep Mode Problems perhaps. Maybe it will help with your case too.

As Gokhan says mate worth a look before mucking around in the registry.

Have you shutdown the PC normally recently? Shutdown and remove PC from power for a couple of minutes just in case.

Make sure your clean startup is as described (disable everything non-MS as a diagnostic) in Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup.

Can you spot anything in Event Viewer?
