Computer Restarts on Sleep/Hibernate

Everytime I put my computer to sleep or hibernate and wake it up, the computer restarts. How can I figure out which driver is causing this?

Hi Shrutishah Welcome to SF,

One way to find is to check the Event viewer
Start > Eventvwr > Application
Check for Errors

Hope that helps

Make sure Wake-on-LAN is disabled in the BIOS (also disable WoWLAN if you're on a newer PC).

This is an older article but it may point you in the right direction: Troubleshooting Windows Shutdown Problems

There's a Microsoft Answers thread about this as well - you might try asking there too: Windows 7 computer restarts automatically after shutdown

Good luck, let us know if you get anywhere with this...
