Windows 7: Laptop crashes instead of sleeping

19 Jul 2013   #1

Window 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Laptop crashes instead of sleeping

My ASUS Laptop has gotten a bit finicky about sleeping when allotted time expires.

I noticed a Driver Power State Failure on the last crash.

I've reset sleep, display off times and disabled and uninstalled items that could be causing.

Updated wireless network driver, but still crashing.

Window 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Thank you for your help in pointing me in the right direction.

I used Kaspersky Removal Tool to uninstall the update to the AV Software that came with my laptop when purchased. I had other problems with the 2013 version when updating my subscription. When I removed it, the sleep function returned without BSOD issues.

I also did the SFC in normal and safe mode, but it seems there is something still there that it can't fix or restore. The system seems to working fine, however, and I installed AVG Free which I use on my Dell Desktop without problems, and it's something I'm used to.

I updated my wireless network driver just to be on the safe side and will probably reinstall iTunes that I removed when trying to solve this earlier.

I already had Malwarebytes on my laptop, which I would heartily recommend.

Thanks again.

Laptop Not Sleeping
I changed the setting to not sleep when I close the lid while plugged in, however whenever I do press the sleep button on the start menu and close the lid, the laptop boots up again. Would this be a windows error that needs re installation, or is it a hardware issue? Thanks in advance
