Windows 7: Sleep shuts down

Windows 7 RTM

Ok I mean so my suggestion isn't good?

Lets go ahead and troubleshoot issues on a beta/RC build, that are probably not fixable, and are a result of something in that build.. Rather then having the user try RTM to see if that resolves it...

That just seems backwards to me...

Try upgrading, you have 120 days total trial, and in that aspect you can see if the issue is resolved.
Gee, never thought of that.

We don't all update all our boxes constantly with every new build - there wouldn't be time for anything else.

It doesn't appear to be a bug just in this build - never come across it before.

If the answer to everything is reinstall/do a repair install , etc - how would we learn anything?

" Why do you want to climb Everest?"


"Because it's there"

Unfortunately - in this case, don't think we are going to learn anything as it appears to have resolved itself.

Sorry, I should have mentioned the Event just said what we already knew - Kernel Power Failure.

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
Thanks for all the responses guys.

Thank you Ken, and also MSDN only has access to the RC1, so theres a BS answer. Not that I really care in the first place, but some people need a wake up call, I thought you fell under the cattegory. Also Kernel Power failure I have seen sometimes in Vista, so glad you found your answer. Now the question is if itll go away on its own or if it will reoccur.

Besides, who hasn't?

Sleep mode then shut down.

Never happened before.

I might have thought there was a resume object error - if it couldn't resume - but it never gats that far.

It just simply turns off after being asleep for a couple of mins.

Power options are as they always were.

Any ideas?
I'm going thru the same problem.
It goes into sleep mode then a few mins later it turns off the machine. Upon re-startup it tells me it wants to send the info to MS I say ok but nothing ever comes back from MS on the probelm.

Might be worth it to go back to vista.

This happens on my system with storage drivers designed for Vista. It's a small piece of coding (according to Microsoft when I submitted a bug report on it) - but it's essential for the system to sleep.

I'd suggest updating to Win7 drivers for your storage controller.
