Windows 7: Sleep acting strange!

I noticed it scanning after I ran the Hard Drive test last night. I will scan it once more using the quicker way. I will also install and run Auslogics Disc Defrag. Should I try using Registry Defrag as well? And, I'll go the the manufacturers website and attempt to run the test.

Dont touch the registry, for now. Reg cleaner and defrag etc are the doorway to trouble. The built in defrag is good enough. It just does not entertain you with pretty graphics as it works.

Okay. I'll run the Hard Drive check now! Thanks! Also, it only appears to run the scan on restart. But, not when powering on. Still, today is the fine time I've noticed the scan on restart.

Did Defrag and Tests. Everything passed. The ROM Loader appears to still be scanning the drives at restart though.

Test Option: QUICK TEST Model Number: WDC WD5001AALS-00J7B0 SMART Status: PASS Test Result: PASS Test Time: 19:31:40, August 21, 2010

When I login to cmd as admin and run that command I receive a message saying that the drive, the path, or the file name is not valid.

Type cmd in search, run as administrator, then see how it works. If not try without run as administrator. It should work. If not I will check carefully for typos

Without an admin, it tells me I need admin. But, as admin, it gives me the error message: The drive, the path, or the file name is not valid.

I have reposted my prior post to read thus:

Use Method 3

Check Disk - chkdsk - Vista Forums
The command is the same for 7
