Windows 7: S3 "insomnia" with RC1?

20 Aug 2009   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Just in case this is helpful in any way to the problem that you have having, here is the sledgehammer approach that I ended up using on Windows Vista to resolve the problem where my laptop would not stay asleep or hibernate for more than 2 minutes. This really is overkill and should only be used as a last resort. (but in my case, my laptop kept waking up in the bag and I thought that it was going to cook itself.)


Go to DefaultPowerSchemeValues
Go to each subfolder ( i had 3 subfolders)
Find ACSettingIndex and change value to 0
Find DCSettingIndex and change value to 0

Thanks to everyone for your help on all levels, be it spoon-feeding or just hinting.
I dint think you did. Apologies for not being clear. I dont care which approach works for you as long as they do. DM gets a little overbearing at times.

Glad you are working

Perhaps it's a cultural thing, the difference between developer communities (newsgroups, FreeNode IRC channels, and places like Stack Overflow) and this community, but I come from a community where people treat others like adults, not like children who need to be coddled and hand-held. It's insulting to the receiving end (it feels like you're calling a tech support hotline where they walk you through some inane script), and it's wasteful. I prefer a no-nonsense approach; you may find it abrasive, but frankly, I find it tiresome to read the same hand-holding fuzziness even in places where it was not necessary.
