Windows 7: Waking up from hibernation, SATA HDD not detected

Waking up from hibernation, SATA HDD not detected

I'm not sure, if it is the write place for this thread, because I think it's completely hardware related. But possibly I'm wrong and it is about the OS too.

So my problem is, when I wake up my PC from hibernation, it doesn't detect my only HDD at all. If I soft reset it, it works and if I boot from HDD, it continues Windows properly.

My HDD doesn't have any problem, all the SMART values are good, no problem with spin up time too according to SMART. However, my PC doesn't detect my WD HDD in case of 90% of wake ups.

It is very frustrating, because I lose time with the restart and with set up the boot order in BIOS. I always have to do that, because the BIOS forgets it should boot from the WD SATA HDD, but as it doesn't exist (it's not detected), it changes the order, which is reasonable and logical.

There are no errors when I use the computer. Everything works right except that.

Could be related to some misbehaving Power Plan settings, try Restore the Default or also it could be related to large SATA hard disk problems

I see you have an Asus, I do too and have experienced the same issue from time to time. If you have a Marvel controller, avoid using it as it is quite horrible. I have experienced this issue and sometimes drives not showing up when booting and various other issues but I don't anymore because I only use the Intel controller now.
