Windows 7: Failure to enter Standby or Hibernation, stops at black screen

22 May 2011   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
I have the same problem

I use connectify with win7 home premium 64bit.
Laptop is Dell inspiron N3010.
And have same problem(standby/hibernation).

So I tested some situations.
I tried to make various combination.
(turning on and off network adaptors/WiFi function Key,
run and stop Connectify Demon)

And finally,
I found the key was that Laptop was connected to the internet once after booting.
Other settings(ex:turnning on/off adpators) didn't affect.

Situation is like this
Cable connected > Boot > Standby(Fail)
Cable disconnected > Boot > Standby(Success) > Cable connect > get IP > disconnect > Standby(Fail)
* WIFI adaptor was on but didn't connected SSID.

* Of course if I uninstall connectify driver, problem solves.
But I wanna use it.
