Windows 7: What is the Wake from hibernation sequence after sleep mode activated?

1 Week Ago   #31

Win7 pro x64

in device manager you want to choose update driver software instead of disable, then Browse my computer for driver software, then let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer, then "uncheck" compatible hardware, then scroll down to microsoft where you'll find the generic hid-compliant driver. But it would be much better to just try a different mouse altogether, as its possible that your razorback will not work with anything but its own driver. By the way you can do all that with a keyboard in case your mouse is not working in the meantime.

Yes, thanks for correcting me, I should have selected Update Driver Software. This way, I could enable the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter and the HID compliant mouse.

Then, ... it seems sleep mode does not like the VGA driver! When VGA driver enabled, the sleep button is blanked out, and I am unable to power down into standy.

I compromised my efforts, and replaced VGA with ATI Radeon 8.961 (April 2012). It wasn't exactly the most basic driver, but I at least knew this earlier driver update caused no contention with sleep mode.

Yet, even with HID compliant mouse and graphics driver 8.961, the resume from sleep still fails.

I don't have another keyboard/mouse available. I might be able to find two PS/2-USB converters that would allow me to setup keyboard+mouse avoiding any USB. Then I could switch off USB support in BIOS and try that?

Yes, exactly: (S1) sleep mode functions correctly and successfully recovers from resume. Whereas (S3) sleep happens ... but it does not recover from resume anymore. I used to be able to do (S3) sleep and resume on my current computer specification.

I think I am pretty much updated as far as Gigabyte would go on this mobo. Nevertheless I tried your links. The support pages of US or Euro or UK website (s) are unresponsive today, from where I am located. I have visited these pages before and I am currently unawares as to the problem,that is not bringing back the search results.

In the meantime, typed "wmic bios get smbiosbiosversion" at cmd prompt, and this returns SMBIOS version F10.

Video card drivers are more likely to be the issue than the mouse driver, so it might be good to start fresh here with a clean device manager and no driver errors. So re-install your normal video driver and mouse driver, and reboot and make sure your device manager has no exclamation marks, aka is "clean". Then boot into bios, select "load fail safe defaults" then go to the bios' power management page and select "power on by mouse" and "power on by keyboard" (these are for powering on from a shutdown state but select them anyway), also select "acpi suspend type" as S3, then boot into windows, go to device manager and next to mouse and keyboard select "allow this device to wake the computer". Then reboot and see if sleep works. Then go to a command prompt and try these two commands:

powercfg -DEVICEQUERY S1_supported

powercfg -DEVICEQUERY S3_supported

which will likely show you that your video card supports S3 but not S1, so I'm guessing that's why S1 works and S3 doesn't, pointing to the issue being your video card, because it never gets powered down in the first place when you use S1. It may be the card itself, or its driver. Only way to know for sure is to use a different video card. By the way,

powercfg -devicequery wake_from_S3_supported will show you what is enabled to wake you from S1 (when its selected in bios). Your mouse and keyboard should be on the list.

There is a F11 Bios available.
Here's a snip from the support page:

If S3 use to work for you with F10, I doubt F11 will help.
If you want to get F11, here's the download link for Europe:

You could also consider a Bios reset as @johnhoh suggested, with your F10 bios.
If you update or reset bios, make sure you know any custom settings you use, so you can re-apply them.

If you let Windows Update install driver updates, maybe an update broke S3.
