Windows 7: Sleep/Hibernate power problems after upgrade

Sleep/Hibernate power problems after upgrade

Hi
I've recently made some changes to my hardware and have noticed some strange behaviour since doing so.

I've:
-Changed my O/S/programs hard-disk to a 480GB SSD
-Upgraded my RAM from 1x4GB to 2x8GB
-Changed my CPU from an i3 to an i5

Whilst doing this I had to upgrade my BIOS - now running Asus BIOS version 4601.

My problems all seem related but I can't find a common link, and despite a lot of searching can't find an answer that works. These are the problems I've noticed:

- When I select "Shutdown" from the start menu everything seems to shut down but the power light stays constantly on
- When I press the "Reset" button Windows freezes for a while before rebooting (Power button puts it into sleep mode)

The main issues are:
- When the PC is set to sleep (using the start menu option) nothing will wake it - not the usb keyboard or mouse, not the temporary PS2 keyboard I have plugged in, & not the power or reset buttons. I have to power it off at the back of the machine, and then when I power it back on it says "Resuming Windows" & boots up normally

It also sounds like there is still a fan running when sleeping.

I have also noticed some strange anomalies related to my USB3 Anker Hub I have - which has previously not caused me any noticeable problems.

When it is plugged in I:
- Cannot use my USB keyboard to access the BIOS (POST screen recognises no keyboards etc.)
- Cannot use my USB keyboard or mouse when in BIOS

If I disconnect the hub prior to boot up I can use my USB keyboard to access the BIOS and the mouse works in the BIOS.

After some searching I saw that several people suggested using the powercfg hibernate on/off - I have tried this with no luck.

Has anyone got any further ideas or suggestions please?

Thanks

Nick

Have you brought your BIOS to defaults after flashing it, make sure you do that and then reboot and see if it fixes it before trying anything else.

I just noticed you mentioned the anker hub. Have you tried setting legacy USB 3 support to on?

I have & sadly it didn't make any difference. Currently though, just to completely eliminate it it is unplugged and still having issues with sleep/resume/shut down.

Problem solved. Had a brainwave and cleared the CMOS using the jumpers on the motherboard.

Now is behaving completely normally!

Ah, sorry when I meant defaults I should have specified that means CMOS then software
