Performance :: Slow Internet Reconnect After Wakes From Sleep
Nov 21, 2015
My new Asus Win10 machine with a solid-state hard drive wakes up from sleep refreshingly quickly -- just a couple of seconds. But it takes between 15 and 40 seconds before the Internet connection is re-established. Once the connection is re-established, it works fine. But that delay is annoying. Can I do something to speed up the re-connection?
I don't know where the delay is coming from. My NIC is plugged directly into my Comcast cable modem -- no other routers or the like involved. The NIC on the machine claims to be an "Intel Ethernet Connection (2) 1219-V", running driver version 18.104.22.168, which is claimed to be the current version. The "Power Management" tab in Device Manager for the NIC lists three power-saver options, all of which are enabled (that is, the boxes are checked):
Respond to ARP requests without waking system
Respond to NS requests without waking system
Energy Efficient Ethernet
(I am attaching a PNG of the Power Management tab.) These options suggest that the NIC should be able to keep the Internet connection alive, even during sleep. So I don't know why I am experiencing a delay in re-establishing the connection.
Title says it all. After waking from sleep mode the computer disconnects from the internet and I have to reboot to get a connection. Makes the whole point of having a "sleep" mode useless. This is annoying because often I go away from m y computer for a few hours during the day and don't want to have to reboot to get back onto my computer. Rebooting wears out the components and is uneccessary when it should simply wake from sleep mode with no hassles. I have a wired connection via ethernet cable. My router is always switched on.
Post W10 Installation - my computer constantly wakes up from sleep. It just will not stay asleep no matter what, I thought it was my mouse so I went into my device manager and changed it so it didn't have the ability to wake up my computer. It stopped for a little while at least that's what it seemed, must have been coincidence because now its happening again. Which is weird because I went into power settings and turned "Wake Timers" off completely, it's now switched to disabled. Yet whenever I runcmd and type "powercfg -waketimers" as it reccomended here [URL] .... to find out which timers are on.
It says something about volume 2 on one of my hdd's, some stuff that doesn't make much sense to me. If you need me to paste the cmd info you're going to have to tell me how. Also when i type "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" it lists "HID Keyboard Device" and "HID Keyboard Device (001)." Maybe the latter is what's waking my computer? I figured that was just another name for my keyboard or something, all I want is my computer to stay asleep and only my corsair keyboard to be able to wake it up.
Also everytime it wakes up I type "powercfg -lastwake" into the cmd and it doesn't give me any info. It says "wake history count -1" and the other 2 stats are 0, followed by no text or information. Also I forgot to mention but when it wakes up as of now, the display will actually stay off but the computers lights and everything are on. Whereas before when I thought it was the mouse waking it up, the whole computer would turn back on, display and all.
On Windows 8.1 pro, my computer would instantly connect to the wifi network from sleep. However, when I upgraded to windows 10 pro, the computer takes about 1 minute to reconnect to the network (which is very annoying). I have turned off the "allow the computer to turn of this device to save power" option for my network adapter, but this does not change anything. Does any body know how to fix this (or just prevent the computer from disconnecting from the network entirely during sleep as this is a desktop and I don't care about power management)
So as the title says, every now and then Windows 10 randomly decides to wake itself up from sleep. It doesn't happen at any consistent time, some days it stays asleep until I actually turn the PC back on. Using powercfg /lastwake just gives me a wake history count and doesn't provide any information.
I can't figure out why this is happening. I've tried googling it and have found similar complaints but no real solution. It's not hardware that is waking it up and I have already disabled the "allow wake" setting for my network adapters in device manager.
i don't want my mouse or touch-pad to wake my laptop from sleep when it gets triggered, I have been to 'mouse settings' & unchecked the part about waking up PC' & i hit apply & OK but no good. Now the touch-pad wont wake it up but my bluetooth mouse still does it. I'm at a lost as to what other settings i missed or if its a bug somewhere.
Upgraded to Windows 10 and now the computer wakes itself from the sleep. I have already disabled network adapter, mouse and keyboard from waking the pc. I have also disabled scheduled tasks from being able to wake the computer.
My system: Win 10 64 bit Retail, MSI B150M Mortar, Intel i5-6500, Samsung 512GB SSD, Corsair 2 x 4 GB Memory, etc.
Although my keyboard and mouse are allowed to wake the PC from sleep (in Device Manager), they don't wake the PC. Interestingly, pressing the "Power Button" on my Fractal R5 case does wake it up from sleep.
I installed Windows 10 right after it came out and have had very few problems but in just the last few days it stopped waking from sleep. The power light used to flash and it would wake from a mouse or keyboard button press but no longer. The system power will come on from a press of the power button but the screen remains blank. If I remove power from the system and then repower it and turn it on it will start the BIOS and re-boot to the state that it was in when I put it into sleep mode. Clearly the hibernate process is working but something is haywire with the wake process. How to troubleshoot?
So I just installed a security program, and my windows 10 pc oddly goes to sleep and wakes back up instantly, twice. It seems like it stopped, but I would like to know if this should sound an alarm for any malicious activity.
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.
I had this issue with my PC in January and went to all the trouble of a rebuild and a new motherboard. That was with Windows 8.1. However I now have this issue in Windows 10, it suddenly started a month ago. I am not moving the mouse or pressing any buttons. There is a 2-3 minutes gap and the system comes out from 'sleep' mode.
We have been using at home wireless logitech keyboard and mouse K270 and M505 respectively. All have worked great and have been using the unifying software. Since upgrading to Windows 10, I have been losing the pointer when my computer wakes from sleep or is unused for a length of time. Whilst I agree this definately looks like a window glitch. I have done all the usual things like refreshing drivers, new batteries etc.
Let me preface this by saying that I'm an average user. I surf the internet, create documents, and basic things like that. I can attempt troubleshooting by following tutorials/instructions.
I recently upgraded my desktop & laptop to Windows 10. The desktop wakes itself from sleep most of the time since upgrading. This wasn't an issue in Windows 7. The laptop has not displayed this issue to the best of my knowledge.
So far I unchecked the "Allow this device to wake the computer" option in Device Manager--> Network adapters--> Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller--> Properties--> Power Management. I saw that tip somewhere on the net.
My motherboard is a P8Z77-V, with Gigabyte 7950 video card, if that matters.
I did the windows 10 upgrade, and all seems well, except waking from Standby.
If I go into start menu, and choose sleep, everything spins down, and the computer shuts itself off. I am assuming this 'sleep' is some sort of hibernate.
But when I leave the computer over night I come back and the monitors are off,but lights on tower on. I am assuming this is standby mode? Anyway, I can't wake the computer from it, using mouse or keyboard (both USB). Clicking power button on tower does nothing. I generally have to click the reset button on tower and do a full boot sequence. When I log in, I do not get a message about windows not shutting down properly (maybe that message is no more in 10?), but clearly it is a fresh desktop.
I reset all bios settings, and update to most recent bios. I have the latest graphics drivers.
Here is some investigating I did, hopefully it works:
Code: D:UsersShea.Wilbur>powercfg /aThe following sleep states are available on this system: Standby (S3) Hibernate Hybrid Sleep Fast StartupThe following sleep states are not available on this system: Standby (S1) The system firmware does not support this standby state. Standby (S2) The system firmware does not support this standby state. Standby (S0 Low Power Idle) The system firmware does not support this standby state.
Code: C:WINDOWSsystem32>powercfg /sleepstudyS0 Low Power Idle is not supported on this machine. Cannot run tool. BIOS settings to check?
I'm running my audio via HDMI from my graphics card and it plays through the speakers built into my monitor.
When I first did the Win 10 update I had no audio whatsoever, and followed some suggestions on online forums that lead me to disable the Realtek High Definition Audio which I did and upon a reboot- my HDMI audio was working.
But then I had another weird issue. My PC is set to never sleep as I use it as a media server, but my screens turn off automatically after 10 minutes. What im finding is that when I wake up my monitors the audio stops. When I view playback devices I can't do any tests because "the device is already in use by another application"
(note: I have the checkbox for allowing an application to take exclusive control of a device un-checked).
So far there are only 2 ways to restore audio. 1) restart the PC. 2) go into device manager > Sound, video and game controllers > AMD High Definition Audio Device > Disable... wait a few moments > Enable.
I have successfully activated hibernate mode (S4), yet whenever the PC is hibernated a shake of the mouse or the press of any key on the keyboard just wakes and turns on the PC. Needless to say I do not want this to happen. Hibernate (S4) works as confirmed by the fact that when it's waken up, the PC goes through the POST phase of the boot before loading W10. In addition a powercfg /a gives the following output
Code: C:WINDOWSsystem32>powercfg /aThe following sleep states are available on this system: Standby (S3) Hibernate Hybrid Sleep Fast Startup
Sleep (S3) works too. Although it seems to have the same effects on the hardware (turns off the CPU fan), the waking up it's much quicker, without POST. In addition, here's the log from Windows event viewer:
Code: Log Name: SystemSource: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-PowerDate: 12/12/2015 16:40:19Event ID: 42Task Category: (64)Level: InformationKeywords: (4)User: N/AComputer: DESKTOP-9NITH1LDescription:The system is entering sleep.Sleep Reason: Application API
In the UEFI BIOS all the ACPI settings are in order, as shown in this photo. Bios is updated to the latest version.
View image: WP 20151201 11 43 34 ProEnabling/Disabling Fast-boot and/or fast start-up changes nothingI tried also a different USB wireless mouse, but no changes. With a PS/2 mouse the PC does not wake up from hibernation.Switching the Logitech Unifying receiver between USB 2 and 3 makes no difference.The same mouse and keyboard do not turn on the PC after a complete shut down.
Asus UX305F laptop I bought last week. It's working fine apart from a couple of things:
- When the battery is getting low, say from 10% and down, the performance drops dramatically and everything, particularly the internet, runs so slow that it's almost impossible to use until I reconnect the charger. I've changed the on-battery power settings to match the performance settings when it's plugged in and it hasn't made any difference.
- When I'm using the laptop in my bedroom which is adjacent to the living room where the WIFI signal is coming from, the connection is extremely slow, much slower than my mobile phone for example. In the living room I average about 50mbps whereas in the bedroom I'd be lucky to get 20mbps though my phone can get about 40mbps in the same room.
I did a fresh install on a SSD not to long ago. The computer is running very smoothly for the most part. However, sometimes when I open the lid to my laptop, it is temporarily unresponsive for a minute or so when resuming from sleep mode. It's pretty annoying. I think it has something to do with my USB settings because it only seems to do it when something is plugged in there. For example, thumb drive, external hard drive.
I tried playing with the settings in power settings. I have turn off hard disk set to never. USB selective suspend set to disabled.
I just upgraded from Win 10 32 to Win 10 64 bit and my internet connection is very slow, about 20/30 kb/s. It was a fresh install, deleted everything and reinstalled from scratch. I have looked on the forums and cant find a solution that works, I've checked the network adapter drivers for my wireless and they're up to date. I've troubleshooted the problem and they said something was wrong with the network configuration which was solved, but still no change in the internet speed. I've got broadband and should be downloading at hundreds of kb/s.
