Windows 7: Delay resuming from sleep

10 Jan 2010   #11


Mitch hasn't the problem been fixed several times by the help you've gotten here, but something causes the problems to come back, right?

If you are getting a screen which says "Resuming Windows" then you are using hibernate instead of sleep.

Go into Power Options>Change Plan Settings>Advanced Settings and under Sleep, make sure Hibernate is turned off.

Now click Sleep in Start Menu next to Shutdown button, then wake it up correctly by using Return key (not Power Button) and see what happens.

Next try going back to Advanced Power Options box and Disabling Hybrid sleep; test it again.

Finally, go back to Advanced power options and Set sleep to Never, set Hibernate instead of sleep to whatever time you want. Try it first without Hybrid sleep, then next with Hybrid enabled.

Report back on each of these tests.

Many who cannot get sleep to work use hibernate instead.

You just have to use the Power Button to turn it back on, which you seem to like to do anyway

So turn sleep off, try Hibernate with and without Hybrid Sleep which I don't think works anyway when sleep is turned off. I'd just turn Hybrid off myself.

You good now, pupster?

i dont know, sleep always tends to to start up the hibernation way, so i could just leave.

However hibernation starts up a tad faster xD

So i have sorta figured out, that i will freeze if hybrid sleep inset on.

And that hibernation is faster than sleep when waking up.

but i will leave it as sleep

when i mean hibernation is faster, it coz i dont have to the blank screen with the flashy line as long and screen doesn't go blank as long

I thought you were going to turn off Sleep and use Hibernate? Doesn't that work best to avoid the freezing?
