Windows 7: Windows Does Not Start After Sleep

21 Aug 2010   #30

Win7 Pro SP1

Any reason why Allow Hybrid Sleep would not be an option? Under sleep I just have Sleep After and Allow wake timers

ok so your solution to sleep not waking is to just disable it? I dont really think that is a great fix.

Dual boot-Mac/Lion and Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 64-bit

This looks to be an old topic but I am having these same issues. When I manually put the computer to sleep, it will not start up. I have to wait for about 10 minutes and eventually it will start up with the power key with a black screen asking for safe more or start up normally.

Mine seems to be the possible result of conflicting antivirus. I had installed Ad-Aware for a college course and then realized there may have been a conflict with Microsoft Security Essentials. I then uninstalled Ad-Aware with Windows Uninstall. The problem is still there and have tried searching for leftovers and well as trying the suggestion on this post. I also had done some other temporary installs for the class which have also since been uninstalled. I have not wanted to resort to a restore point in few of losing a very important and time consuming install that I still need.

When I go to Advanced Settings>Sleep, I only get Allow wake timers as and option. It was set to Disable.

Is anyone still out there with some ideas?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

same issue, windows freezes on waking up from sleep. Hard drives spin, monitors turn on, but everything is black (except for my mouse pointer, which moves around). Like a few other have mentioned, I also do not have the "Allow Hybrid Sleep" option under "Power Options." Just "Sleep after" and "Allow wake timers", so this fix won't work for me. Any other suggestions?
