Windows 7: Windows 7 and Sleep

Windows 7 and Sleep

Hey all,

Own a MSI X340, using Windows 7.

Recently (I think it was after a BIOS update), my Windows 7 was unable to sleep. When I press sleep from the start menu, the screen will fade to black, and after 2 seconds it immediately jumps to the login screen.

I have disabled my network adapters to wake the computer from sleep.

This problem's been bugging me zzz.. Anyone knows the solution? Thanks.

More than likely the problem is related to the bios...

Keep pushing MSI support for an update.
