Computer Becomes Useless Once It Goes Into Sleep Mode
Mar 15, 2016
I have a custom PC I built myself. The computer runs flawlessly while playing games or using my computer in any way. I'm having a problem though that I cant find anywhere. When my computer goes into sleep mode by its self and I come back to it later it will just be on a pale blueish screen and occasionally a pale orangy screen and it wont let me do anything. The only thing I can do is hit the reset or power button, and once its back on everything works great until it sleeps again on its own. I don't even know if its a hardware or software problem.
My computer will not go to sleep at all unless it is in safe mode without networking (the monitor does sleep then). When I boot it into safe mode with networking, it will not go to sleep (the monitor will not sleep). When I boot normally into Windows 10 (clean install; up-to-date as of today with Windows Update), the computer does not sleep.
Also, sometimes before when I login after a normal startup, the computer does go to sleep; however, nothing displays on the monitor after I press the power button to bring it out of sleep. I tried disabling the "wake" feature for the network adapter (as suggested in another thread), but that did not work at all. My computer's specifications are:
Operating System Windows 10 Home 64-bit CPU Intel Core i7 2600K @ 3.40GHz Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology RAM 8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24) Motherboard Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.

i have custom built computer more than able of handling just about any game with a
SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290 100362-3L 4GB video card Rosewill RX850-S-B - Xtreme Series 850-Watt power supply G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 ram MSI 970A-G43 motherboard Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM hard drive and a amd fx6500 3.5ghz cpu
along with 5 case fans and a fan controller to keep it cool. now onto my problem when ever i do anything demanding like play a game it will run fine (with varying time but typically at least a hr) then at some point with no warning it will go into for a lack of a better term (not really sure what to call it) partial sleep mode. the led on the front of the tower will flash as if in sleep mode yet i can still hear everything else working (the hard drive fans everything) but i will lose picture.
The only way to get it out of this partial sleep mode is by completely unplugging (i have tried hitting the power button which typically wakes it up from regular sleep, hitting the reset button moving the mouse everything one would typical do to wake it up from a regular sleep mode and it does not work the power supply needs to be turn off and then turn back on). Thinking that something was getting to hot i run a whole bunch of monitoring software (cpuid and rainmeter) the cpuid i run on a second screen so i can constantly monitor temps and nothing seems to be running to hot the hottest i have seen my cpu and gpu get is like 65c.
I have tried to replicate it by ruing a cpu and gpu stress tester (separate hoping that if one cause it then i know where the problem and together) with no luck of replacting even after running them for like 12hrs straight. Just a few more thing no i am not overclocking i have 5 case fans 1 pulling in through the front 1 blowing out through the back and my cpu fan run by the mother board and 1 on the bottom pulling up and 2 on the top blowing out run by a fan controller which i set to manual and set all the fans to 100%. my cpu is about 2 years old and all the other parts are less than a year old. and i have Kaspersky antivirus which i ran multiple time with nothing found. it did it both when i had windows seven and when i upgraded to windows 10.
My computer (an Asus Republic of Gamers) shuts down when in sleep mode. More precisely, I put it in sleep mode (in 1-2 seconds), but when I open the lid or press a key on the keyboard to wake it up, it starts from scratch, as if I had shut it down.
I tried deactivating Intel Management Engine Interface in the Device Manager as I saw it could be a reason for my problem, but it doesn't solve it. I reinstalled Windows from scratch (from a USB key) and the problem is still there.
I only have the computer for less than a month and I think it worked fine at the beginning.
My computer won't go into sleep mode automatically. Even when I manually set it to sleep, it will be awake again within 10 minutes or so. I've gone into the advanced power options to make sure that nothing is interrupting it while sleeping and set it so nothing could wake it up. I've checked in the device manager to make sure none of my devices are waking it up.
After it wakes up I'll go into the command prompt and use the "powercfg -lastwake" to see what could be causing it and nothing shows up. There are even times when the computer will turn itself on from being completely turned off.
I have clean installed windows 10 on my Zenbook (UX31LA) and i have problem with the sleep mode, when i enter sleep mode (either way) my screen turns off and the power led blinks (normal so far), but when i wake the computer up, I see the "Asus" logo and it loads the sign in screen and all my work is gone. it looks like it stats from scratch and it takes about 8 sec (like stat from power off).
I upgraded to Windows 10 and now I cannot wake up my computer from sleep mode. With Windows 7 and 8.1 all I had to do was tap any key and the computer would wake up. Now that doesn't work. I have to press and hold down the power button to force a shut down and then restart. This problem only appeared after I installed Windows 10. How can I fix it?
The store we went to sold us a computer they had on display. They didn't reset the computer and left their administrators on the computer. I've installed google chrome office 365 and downloaded documents but when it sleeps or when i've restarted the computer everything "saved" is gone. Will reverting back to a previous system as suggested here [URL]
I have an HP pavilion g6 notebook laptop computer. I have recently upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I had occasion to put my computer to sleep! I had been working on my college courses for a few hours, when I needed to take a break. I put my system to sleep, but when I returned to complete my assignments my computer would not turn on! It went to an off black screen, and locked up! When at sleep the power indicater blinked, which indicates that it was in sleep mode.
When I tried to awaken my Pavillion it locked up, and the only way to regain control was to manually force it to shut down (i.e. hooded power button down.) thinking this may be due to system clutter I cleaned both user disc & system files using the Windows disk cleaning function, found through the control panel, looked for both HP updates, and Windows updates.
Later I again tried to awaken my machine after putting it to sleep, and had a repeat in the inability to awaken it! A third and the last time I tried to awaken my PC from sleep I noticed that for some reason, and somehow the indicator light was solid, the screen black, and I heard my computers fan running!
My computer won't go into sleep mode if it's been on for a while. It will go into sleep mode if it's freshly booted. Whenever I check, powercfg -requests is clear. Currently, powercfg -requestsoverride shows process: chrome.exe display system awaymode, driver: filesystemsrvnet system. When it won't go into sleep mode, it won't even automatically turn off the monitor. My settings are set to allow sleep.
Ideally I would like a fix for this, but I would also be okay with some kind of program that puts my computer into sleep mode after 30 minutes. I used to have such a program a long time ago, but I have forgotten the name of it, and googling 'sleep timer' just shows sleep mode tutorials. Googling 'powercfg requests is clear but computer won't go into sleep mode' hasn't been particularly useful, either.
It looks like my computer was logged on by someone during that time of audible beeps. I have only had Win10 a few days. I am using a hard wired modem. Event id 4624. It shows login, but it was NOT me. I had the power cord removed when it was logged on, but not my ethernet cord. I need to remove the ethernet cord every night too? I am using Win10 firewall.
I am on 10565 Pro version though this occured in last build too. Whenever I come back to my pc in the morning after putting it in hibernate mode for the night my airplane mode is always on. I notice it first by my bluetooth mouse being disconnected and then wifi connectivity.
The one fix I tried is unchecking the allow to shut off option to save power under device manager properties for my wifi adapter.
Recently I have noticed that my computer is EXTREMELY SLUGGISH after I wake it up out of sleep mode. It runs very very slowly. Rebooting is the only thing that fixes the sluggishness but then it happens again once my computer is put to sleep and then wakes up.
My computer is an Alienware Area 51 R2. I upgraded to windows 10 about a month ago without any problems. I have the Hibernate feature turned off as the files required to preserve my computer state during hibernation take up far too much space on my tiny 120 GB SSD that windows is installed on (all my games and other stuff are installed to the 1.5 TB standard platter-based hard drive) Sleep function remains enabled though.
I have a pair of NVIDIA Geforce GTX 980 graphics cards and am using the latest graphics drivers with them (358.50 according to the latest update i got).
Defragmenting (and in the case of SSD, trimming it) have not worked.
When I put my computer in sleep mode, it won't 'wake up'. I have to manually turn off the computer and then start it up again. This has happened twice. I'm not putting it into sleep mode until I find out what's wrong and that's exasperating as I normally leave my computer on all day so I can periodically play my games.
I did the conversion from Windows 7 to Windows 10 about 1.5 months ago. This is a Dell Vostro w/Intel Corei5 desktop
All was fine until I attempted to wake the computer from sleep mode recently and got the following error.
An operating system was not found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system
Press Ctrl+Atl+Del to restart
I disconnected the two external drives I had connected and tried again with the same result.
On startup, I've hit F12 to run through the Dell ePSA Pre-boot system assessment and it passes all the tests System, Cables, OS boot Path, Hard drive, cd rom drive, video card, cpu fan, system fan processor and memory.
I have the original 7, 64 bit installation disks, but nothing for Windows 10. What's the best way to get this thing going again?
Rig only a few weeks old and I noticed for the second time now when my computer is left alone for awhile it acts like it's in sleep mode but mouse and keyboard don't seem to be waking it. I fixed it last time by just restarting computer...
My laptop, running Windows Ten from a clean install, has issues with the sleep function. About once a day, when I either put the computer to sleep or when it does it on its own, the screen will go black but the computer will not stop running. All the lights are on, the fan and disks keep running. Nothing works to turn the screen back on and my only option becomes to force a shut down.
I've tried tweaking all the power options in various ways, I've tried disabling/enabling hibernation/fast start and I've searched for an answer but I do not have one.
my pc with windows 10 pro is downloading and installing useless software and applications by itself, its very disturbing, while im playing games the screen goes to desktop without any notification and it shows setup being installed of softwares.
