Windows 7: Intermittent problem resuming from sleep.

Intermittent problem resuming from sleep.

I'll wake my computer from sleep (by pressing the space bar), sometimes to goes right to the log-in screen and sometimes it will hang. I thought it was due to having a virtual optical drive related to a program that creates .iso files. I did a reinstall with just Windows and motherboard drivers and the issue is still there. When it hangs, the right display will be on but nothing show on it, the left and center displays will be off. The only way to get it to turn on is to hold the power button in to shut it off and then turn it back on.

After that happens, I'll check Windows Logs under System and see one error about not being able to load a CDROM driver (I don't have an optical drive in my computer).

After looking on the internet, I think the process number that I found and is causing the error is "IAStorDataMgrSvc.exe"

I also have the newest NVidia drivers installed (388.71). I was thinking maybe it's video related because of the way the monitors act.

Here is the list of the latest motherboard drivers (is Intel Turbo Boost related to IAStorDataMgrSvc?).

edit: read the notes for that driver and it's not supported by my CPU (i7-5960X)

If the computer does not wake from sleep or hibernate mode, restarting the computer, changing settings, or updating the software, BIOS and drivers might resolve the issue.

The genuine IAStorDataMgrSvc.exe file is a software component of Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (RST) by Intel Corporation. Make sure to install latest version of Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (RST).

IRST - Intel Rapid Storage Technology isn't needed if you don't have a RAID array. IRST is a supervising and tuning program. When you install IRST it will also install the SATA (AHCI or RAID drivers).

If IRST is giving you some problems you can uninstall it. The needed drivers will remain on the computer.

I do not have a RAID array although my motherboard does support it. I did not install IRST during the reinstall.

If you didn't install IRST, did you install the drivers?

It hasn't happened the last couple restarts. I also didn't change anything. I'll see if it happens again this week.

I only say this in the most general terms, after 37+ years of working on computers running MS OS's.

Since invented by MS, Sleep and Hibernate have had issues (been buggy) which have spurred thousands of complaints on various forums. The worse is "my computer went to sleep and now I can't wake it up!".

Grrrr! For that very reason, and to preserve my own data and sanity, I disable both Sleep and Hibernate when I first set up a new install of any version of Windows. Life is just more enjoyable without something like Sleep or Hibernate messing with me.

I consider a computer like any other appliance in my house....when I'm not using it, or just not here, it's turned OFF. There is some housekeeping that Windows needs to do, that it can only do during a full and complete Shutdown. (like save the registry to the hard drive)

When I disable Hibernate, I also get rid of that HUGE Hiberfil.sys file in the root directory, which takes up a HUGE amount of space.

Some folks will complain about loosing so much disk space, yet they do nothing about the "Elephant in the Room".

Just a thought!

TechnoMage2016 your thought are like mine.

I can't help you if you are using Sleep or Hibernation except suggesting using a different method.
Sleep and Hibernation gave me so many head aches, I gave up.

Shut down you computer properly when not in use.
Today's computers shutdown and startup so quickly, I really don't see any need for Sleep or Hibernation.

I wish I could give more help.

I hope my thought are not off subject.

I've been using sleep for as long as I've been using computers. At this point it's because of habit and no other reason. I guess I could leave the computer on all day (when I'm home) and shut it off when I go to work or to bed. Maybe have a screensaver running when I step away from the computer for a bit?

To Technomage and LaybackBear, what are your power settings in the Control Panel?

on a side note, it's been waking up normally and I haven't changed anything
