Windows 7: Win7 x64 on notebook - two unresolved issues

For issue 1, it's probably because Windows isn't communicating properly with the motherboard and processor. I suggest you download Intel's INF update utility if you're using an Intel Motherboard or whatever AMD's equivalent is. I'm not sure if there are other files responsible for this, but you should ensure that all things related to power like mobo, graphics, monitor, etc have all the proper drivers installed.

To find out what is waking your computer up try this:

Start a command prompt, then use this command :

"powercfg -lastwake" (Will display what woke the machine the last time)

To get the most detailed info on the device that wakes your Windows up during sleep try:

" powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" (shows the devices that can wake windows up)

bobtran,

Great suggestion. I tried 'powercfg -devicequery wake_armed' and found that the modem could wake up the computer. I disabled its ability to do so, but the system still will not go into standby on its own!

what results from "powercfg -lastwake" ?

what power schema are you using (balanced/power saver).....if you choose "change plan settings" what options do you see on the next page for:

turn off display: <30 min>
turn off machine: ? <--- here

Do you have a wireless mouse/keyboard....if so this can cause the computer to wake from sleep unexpectedly. Speaking of sleep, can you put it to sleep manually from the start button?

Are you 100% sure you ran the INF update utility? This is the main thing that lets Windows identify your chipset. It's not a driver and 99% you won't find it on your manufacturer's driver page.

bobtran,

Powercfg -lastwake showed the button push I used to wake the machine from standby. This did not change after it tried to sleep on its own (but failed).

I am using the balanced scheme. The settings I have been using for testing purposes are:
Display dim: 1 min
Display off: 2 min
Standby: 3 min

The display does dim after 1 min, but it never blanks and the computer never enters standby. It seems to 'try' to enter standby - the screen momentarily blanks, but then it comes right back (undimmed).
