Power Options and Sleep Mode Problems

Hi Lio,

This is true. The hibernation file must be the same size as the amount of installed RAM since it saves everything from memory to the hard drive when the computer goes into hibernation mode directly or after awhile in hybrid mode.

It is safe to clean this file in Disk cleanup if you do not plan on using hibernation or Hybrid mode. You will still be able to use the normal Sleep mode though.

Hope this helps you,
Shawn

Hi,

Firstly, thanks for putting in the effort to help random users deal with their problems, it is truly generous!

I have been having the sleep issue now for about two months. I purchased my laptop roughly a year ago, and the sleep function worked perfectly for quite a while. Then, one day it simply stopped working. I don't recall what updates I installed at that time which could've caused this, but I have tried everything, including removing all the windows updates, reinstalling them, but to no avail.

My particular issue is that I go into sleep, and when I try to load it up, the fans/power seems to go on, but the screen is off/blank. I tried hooking it up to a monitor, but that didn't help!

I have an LG Z1 Pro Express Dual computer w/Vista Business 32bit and 2 gigs ram. I've gone through every method in this tutorial, but nothing has worked thus far. I installed Vista SP1 this morning, praying that it would cure my ailing computer, but it hasn't!

The LG support system is not especially good, so I've gone and found this program that allowed me to upgrade the ATI graphics drivers to a version above the one supplied by LG. That didn't work!

Going into the BIOS, and also doing the "powercmg -a " program, I see that I only have S3 available now, though am unsure of whether S1 was available before.

I am literally at the edge of buying a new computer , as I constantly open and close my comp between classes, etc., and rebooting is just so annoying.

Also, when I shutdown the computer, sometimes it does a reboot, and i have to force power off by holding the power button. Each time I boot up, it says that windows hadn't powered off correctly (the black screen)!

I apologize for the long message, but am trying to remember all the issues i've been having so you have the most info to work with!!!

Thanks so much,

Josh.

Hi! How would I go about doing this ?

When I did the 'powercfg -a' it said only S3 was available, and in my bios, there doesn't appear to be any options at all to modify sleep settings (aside from turning on/off S3).

Thanks in advance,

Josh.

Josh,

The available sleep states is dependant on your BIOS. It appears that your BIOS version only supports the S3 sleep state.

Have you tried doing a System Restore to a date before the problem started?

Will the System Restore cause all files that I've downloaded/saved/created disappear since the restore point ? I will need to backup big time if that is the case!

Thanks .

I would backup what you do not want to lose to be safe. Some of these files could be wiped out in the restore.

Hi Shawn,

Happy Easter. Unfortunately, my restore points are very recent, only a few days, and therefore, wouldn't help as the problem is so long standing.

Any more suggestions? How do I know if my BIOS can be upgraded? I am losing my marbles! I cannot even turn off my computer.... might need to reformat once I have the time!

Happy Easter to you to Josh.

I would leave the BIOS as is for now until the sleep issue is worked out. No need to add another potential problem.

I must admit that I'm stomped to what the problem may be. I would backup everything and give a fresh reinstall with the SP1 to see how it works for you when you have time.

Darn! I wonder if it has anything to do with when my girlfriend dropped the computer ?

Anyway, will try that in a few weeks, and let you know if it works! Its never so bad to reformat completely anyway i guess!

Take care.

Thanks for the informative tutorial, but I'm afraid I could use some further help!

Here's my problem: I've updated my BIOS and graphics drivers, and when I set the ACPI setting in the BIOS to S1, sleep works fine (but the computer doesn't shut off - the fans and such are all still going), and when I set it for S3 it goes to sleep (computer shuts off), but when I try to wake it up it just hangs - the HD LED is on steady, nothing shows up on the screens (I'm running a dual monitor set up), and in fact the screens themselves don't even go out of sleep mode (power LEDs keep flashing). I have to hard-reset the computer to get it back. The same hanging symptoms occur when the BIOS is set to S1 & S3.

Any clues as to what might be causing this?

Hi rightwinger59,

Welcome to Vista Forums. :party:

If this is after you installed SP1, then see if this may help you:

Re: Hibernation fails after installation of SP 1 - TechNet Forums


If you have a USB mouse, then see if this may apply to you:

A Windows Vista-based computer does not resume from sleep mode if you move or click a USB mouse as the computer is entering sleep mode


Hope this helps,
Shawn

I do have SP1, but I was hoping that SP1 would fix this problem because it was doing exactly the same thing before the service pack. Unfortunately, the symptoms remain. Is this a video driver issue? nVidia hasn't come out with a new set of drivers since December, but again, this machine has been doing it since I built it. :(

I'm pretty sure it's not the mouse issue either, since I use the keyboard to put it to sleep and don't even touch the mouse.

Rightwinger,

If you have a USB mouse, it can cause problems like this even if it was not touched.

nVidia has a 174.74 beta driver version out for the 6,7 and 8 series that you can try to see if it is the video driver or not. You can see about it here:

http://www.vistax64.com/graphic-cards/139495-latest-nvidia-forceware-drivers.html


You might also consider running a Startup Repair to see if it finds anything wrong with the setup and fix it.

I'll admit my skill level is a zero. I'll probably take my computer back to Office Max and see if they can help. I have a HP laptop with vista. Last week I clicked the hibernation button just to see what it would do. Opening the lid, pressing any key does nothing. The computer just "dings". The word "Hibernation" is on the screen and the little blue circle to the left just rotates.

Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Scott

At last Vista sleep mode now works so very many thanks for your guidance :D. Unfortunaltey i may have gone a step too far as I changed the setting in User Feed Synchroinization (dont ask me why!). I now get a message relating to my anti virus prog saying " A programme cant display message on your desktop". I changed the setting TO windows vista and believe I should have left well alone - just got a bit carried away but pretty sure this was the only deviation from your instructions! Problem now is I cant find where I accessed that setting! CAn you help? Thanks again

Hi Cholin,

Welcome to Vista Forums. :party:

Umm, I'm not sure where you changed that from the instructions above.

Check to see if you change this setting in Internet Properties, Content, Feed Settings. If so, just uncheck everything and click OK.

Hope this helps,

NOpe, thats not it! I remember a whole list of settings options and each one was assigned to vista apart from this last one (user_feed_synchronisation) which was assigned to xp, windows 2000 and pos one other older windows system. Dont ask me why but thats what i changed to Vista. :cry:

Thanks again for your help so far!




Hi Cholin,

Welcome to Vista Forums. :party:

Umm, I'm not sure where you changed that from the instructions above.

Check to see if you change this setting in Internet Properties, Content, Feed Settings. If so, just uncheck everything and click OK.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
