Keyboard Does Not Work After Sleep / Hibernate

After i updated to windows 7 (clean install from xp) my keyboard (standard ps/2) will stop working after my pc goes into sleep or hibernate. I changed the keyboard settings to "allow this device to wake computer", which works for sleep mode. However, once the computer goes into hibernate the keyboard will once again not work and the "allow this device to wake computer" box is no longer checked. The drivers are up to date. Is there a fix or work around for this?

Random Shut Down In Sleep & Hibernate Modes

I recently installed windows 7 professional on my hp laptop and i have the following problem: when i enter the computer into "sleep" or "hibernate" mode, after a certain period of time (usually a few hours), the computer will automatically wake up and the screen will go blue for a split second before the computer shuts down completely. When i turn the computer on again, it says that it has been shut down improperly and prompts me whether or not i would like to boot normally or in safe mode. When i was using windows xp, i had no problem leaving the computer in sleep mode for days at a time. Does anyone know why i might be having this problem with windows 7?

Monitor Goes Directly In Sleep Mode On Boot Up

I bought a computer last week online (had it built from a popular site that i've used before). The computer worked fine for a few days. Last night, in the middle of playing a game, it crashed or something. Upon reboot, the monitor went directly into power saving mode. I thought my old monitor was t he problem, so i bought a new monitor. Same thing. When i turn it on, the monitor goes right into sleep mode. Maybe once out of every 20 or 30 reboots it will actually boot up, or i can spam f8 and get it to boot into safe mode.

I read online to turn off all the power-saving options. So i did (and i also installed the new monitor driver from the disc while i was able to do so). Rebooted. Same  problem. Every time i boot up, all i see is a black screen and the monitor goes right into power saving mode, hitting f8 does nothing, no normal boot screens even appear. The boot up "beep" never sounds off, and the fan seems to die down very quickly as well. Whats really confusing is that it worked fine for like 5 days. Then poof there's some kind of conflict.

Maybe the onboard video card is turned on in the bios or something? I don't know cause i cant even get that far. Booting up gets me to a sleeping monitor every time. Anyone got any ideas? These are the exact parts i am working with: amd phenom ii x2 550 dual-core cpu4gb ddr2-800 pc6400ati radeon hd5750 1gb single cardasus m4a785-m amd785g hybrid crossfire chipset power supply 600 watt windows 7 (64 bit)

Keyboard / Mouse Inactive After Monitor Goes Into Sleep Mode

I seem to be having a problem with both the keyboard and mouse going inactive after my monitor goes into a "sleep" mode and is "woke-up". The mouse works for a few seconds after that and then "freezes& if i unselected the "turn monitor off after 1 hour", then i never experience the problem. I'd like to select "after 1 hour" as i leave my pc on constantly. I have the most recent drivers for my monitor (acer al2216w), am using a logitech "access" keyboard and ms wheel mouse optical usb. The drivers for the keyboard and mouse were installed by windows 7.

When Coming Out Of Sleep Mode, Monitor Wont Turn Off

When coming out of sleep mode, my pc's screen saver won't come on and the monitor won't turn off. My windows 7 64-bit pc is set to bring itself out of sleep mode every morning to run backups. About one third of the time, when it does this, the monitor stays black, with the only visible element being the cursor. The full display is only shown when i move the mouse. This is what i would like to happen all the time.

However, other times, the full desktop is shown when the pc comes out sleep mode, and the screen saver will not come on after this, nor will the monitor put itself in standby mode after 10 minutes like it's meant to. Does anybody know how to fix this so it behaves the way i'd like all the time? It drives me mad as the monitor lights up the darkened room. My graphics adapter is an ati radeon 4200.

Win 7 Does Not Recognize Monitor When Wakes From Sleep Mode

Windows 7 does not recognize my monitor when it wakes from "sleep" mode. When windows 7 awakes from "sleep" mode my desktop screen is distorted.control panel, screen resolution lists the monitor as "generic non-pnp monitor". I have gone to control panel, screen resolution, and picked "detect", "identify", "apply", "ok", and restarted my computer to save my monitor and native resolution setting. The nvidia control panel lists my monitor as the primary display, but "sleep" does not seem to remember this. If i "shutdown" or "restart" my computer everything is fine.

Cannot Hibernate Computer

My laptop is a t400 thinkpad lenovo with windows 7. Whenever i try to hibernate it, after the screen turns off it beeps and the "sleep mode" led turns on. The computer doesn't go to hibernation and power doesn't go off. In this situation the only thing i can do is to push the power button for four seconds to kill the power manually and off course next time i turn it on it asks to load the safe mode because of improper shut down. I tries system recovery of windows but it didn't help. The shutdown and sleep both work properly. Anybody has any idea how can i fix this?

Hibernate Mode Still Use Battery

I use windows 7 ultimate 32 bit v6. 1. 7600 on my laptop hp which full compatible to windows 7. I have all my drivers up-to-date. When i finished my working session, the battery remains about half, and i started hibernate mode last night. Today morning, i booted up my system and i was surprised that the battery was nearly empty. I think hibernate mode doesn't use energy at all, so i wonder why this happened?

Also, my pc can't start hibernate or sleep mode although i enables this feature. When i click hibernate from start menu, my pc log-off, and then it nearly restarts. So please explain to me why, and what should i do to use hibernate and sleep mode on my pc. Ps: i could still use hibernate or sleep mode on vista 32-bit before.
Thanks!

System Freezes After Hibernate

I have a toshiba t135-s1310 laptop running windows 7 64-bit, 4gb ram.computer restarts quickly with no issues. However, when waking up from hibernate mode, the computer freezes and must be turned off manually. This only happens in hibernate, not sleep/standby. All drivers are updated, bios updated, virus scan done; i can't seem to find any issues. I never had any problems up until last week: i was in the middle of a word document, and the computer suddenly froze and restarted itself. Since that point, the hibernate function doesn't work properly. Any ideas?

Bsod - Usbhub.sys On Shutdown / Hibernate

A few days ago my computer with a recently installed windows 7 build 7100 start getting a bsod every single time i shut it down, restarted it or set it to hibernate. I've tried updating all ubs drivers in device manager but they were all up to date and didn't help. I tried restarting it with not a single usb device plugged in. I normally only have a usb mouse and sometimes a exhd or ipod plugged in, standard stuff. I tried doing my own research for the problem elsewhere but couldn't find any answer.

I also tried windows update and installed these three new optional updates but that failed to make any difference either. What other information do you need about my computer to diagnose the problem?

Dual Monitor Problem - 2nd Monitor Detected Black

Ok, so i have a dell that was running vista and two monitors. When i upgraded to windows 7 pro i ran into the infamous black screen problem and fixed it. However, i only fixed my main monitor. When i open the display window, both of my monitors are detected but my secondary monitor shows a black screen and the monitor itself says there is no signal detected from my pc.

The strange thing is my pc thinks its working (i can drag a window from my working monitor towards the black one and it moves out of my working monitor into the black screen). I currently have both of them plugged in using a dvi to vga splitter and i have also updated the drivers by clicking the "update driver" button in the monitor properties window. Please help if you can!

Cannot Move Windows From One Monitor To Other - Dual Monitor Setup

I have two monitors of the same resolution connected to an ati radeon hd 4300/4500 video card. In windows 7 extended mode i see a full working desktop on one monitor, but only the background picture on the other - the four-square flag motif again a blue background with wispy lines, butterfly etc.

No taskbar, icons or anything else. On one occasion briefly the mouse cursor appeared on it instead of on the full desktop image. If i try to drag a window on to the second monitor it won't go there. The settings are landscape with two mointors "1" and "2". I have two images but how can i use the second one?

Computer Sleep

I set my computer to sleep after 30 minutes. It did go to sleep. When i moved the mouse to wake it up, only the wallpaper loaded up. No icons at all. I had to turn it off by the on and off button on the tower. Not a good idea, but that was the only way i could restart my computer, after it turned on again all my icons were there and i was able to resume all the functions again. Any ideas how to set it to sleep without this problem? This is a new windows 7 computer. Hp pavillion elite 137c

Pc Will Not Sleep Or Shut Down

My computer will not shut down or sleep, i am running windows 7 64-bit on an hp pavillion slimline. When i click either of these options it tells me it is going to sleep or shutting down, but the actual computer never does. It stays on the shutting down screen with the circled icon constantly spinning. Eventually it just cuts out like after some time, ill say about 5-10 mins, then restarts saying there was an issue shutting down. So for the past couple of days i been trying to fix this problem and it seems i cant do it on my own.

Htpc - S3 Sleep Not Working

I have recently put together a windows 7 htpc (see components below). Media center is working great! I'm just having problems configuring the sleep settings. Here is the rundown:

S3 sleep does not work - error message and reboot when computer wakes
S1 sleep works - cannot wake up computer with remote

Bios is set correctly but s3 sleep does not work. I can wake the computer from s3 sleep using the keyboard/mouse/power button the error screen only appears for a few seconds so i'm unable to make out any error codes. I've checked the event logs, but they don't say much just that my computer was shut down unexpectedly. I tried disabling "hybrid sleep" which seemed to work - the computer woke up and i saw the desktop, but an error message popped up shortly followed by a reboot. Ideally i would like to be able to enter s3 sleep with remote and wake with the remote. S1 sleep won't wake from remote.

I can successfully wake from s1 sleep with the keyboard/mouse/power button, but not the remote. I have tried looking in the device manager for a setting to allow the remote to wake from sleep, but haven't been able to find one. The ehome infrared transceiver device does not a have power management tab. Fyi, i am using the ir receiver port on my hauppauge tuner card not a usb receiver.

Win 7 Sleep Issues

Having installed windows 7 this weekend, i now find that my system isn't really sleeping. It does go into an altered state but i don't think it's really sleep and i can't wake it up with the (ps/2) keyboard as i could before.

The energy report from powercfg says that s3 has been disabled due to a known hardware conflict but standby worked with the same hardware in windows xp. Is there some way i can determine what this "known" conflict is and override it?

The report also lists some usb devices that are not entering suspended state. How do i match the ids on the report to entries in the device manager? Finally, would replacing the keyboard with a usb model let me wake it up with the keyboard again? There were so many complaints about usb keyboards preventing standby that i've tended to stay away from them.

How To Configure Mouse To Allow Sleep?

Three days ago, i did a clean install of windows 7 and configured the machine to sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity. That worked fine for two days. Yesterday, i installed intellipoint 7 because i need to program the extra buttons on my intellimouse explorer 4 for different applications. Now that i've done that, the machine will not sleep automatically. When i display the properties for the mouse and go to the power management tab, the option to allow the machine to turn off power to the mouse is not activated. Iow, i cannot check that box.

I changed my advanced power management settings to be sure that i set the multimedia sharing to allow the machine to sleep and also disabled "selective suspend" (not sure what it's for) but i still can't get the check box in the mouse power management properties to be activated. Edit:  i uninstalled intellipoint 7 and sure enough, the machine sleeps as expected. The box on the power management tab remains deactivated but the machine is sleeping. What's going on here? I never had any problem with this in same model mouse with either windows xp or vista.

Is this a "known issue"? The old version of intellipoint is not compatible with windows 7 so i can't use it. Is there any way to program my buttons and get windows 7 to sleep?  Does anyone know if i can run an old version of intellipoint in some sort of compatibility mode? Fyi to microsoft: intellipoint seems to have degraded with every successive release since version 3. If that version supported my current mouse and would run on windows 7, i would definitely be using it.

Troubleshooting Sleep Mode

I have a brand new hp laptop w/fingerprint reader. It's has continually had a problem coming out of sleep mode. When i was using just a password it would always tell me my password was invalid, when i started using the fingerprint reader it always says it doesn't recognize the reader. I could do a hard reboot (disconnect power and remove battery) and it would cure the issue. This last time i did a hard reboot the computer started up, the screen flashed and went black and it will not and has not allowed me to do anything. Keyboard and mouse do not function, black screen. Lights on the keyboard come on and the fans work but that's it!

Win7 Would Freeze After Sleep Mode

Windows 7 would freeze after sleep mode and a hard reboot would fix it. Until this last time went to awake it up and i got the normal freeze screen when i went to hard reboot nothing happens other then my fans spin lights come on and the cd drive.

Programs you are having problems with my keyboard will not light up nor will my screen turn on. I tried removing ram and swapping it around, unplugged hard drives, unplugged everything and checked all connections and even removed the battery from my mother board. My motherboard is an asus m2n-sli deluxe with a 3. 2 duel core athlon.nvidia 8800 gt i believe.

Cannot Disable Keyboard Wake From Sleep

I have an asus n80vn notebook. I want to be able to wake up my notebook only by pressing the power button or the sleep button. I do not want any other keyboard key to wake my computer from sleep. Currently, pressing any key on the keyboard will wake my computer from sleep.

Here's what i've already tried:

1. Go to device manager -> keyboards -> properties -> power management -> uncheck "allow this device to wake the computer" why it doesn't work : there is no power management tab in my keyboard driver's properties window. I currently have four entries under "keyboards in the device manager:

Keyboard device filter
Microsoft ehome mcir 109 keyboard
Microsoft ehome mcir keyboard
Microsoft ehome remote control keyboard keys
There is no power management tab in any of these!

2. Go into bios, disable "wake on keyboard" why it doesn't work: there is no "wake on keyboard" option, nor anything similar, in my bios.

3. Open a command window, use the "powercfg -devicedisablewake" command to disable waking from the keyboard. Why it doesn't work: "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" does not report any devices currently set up to wake my computer from sleep. Furthermore, "powercfg -devicequery wake_programmable" only reports that my network card and my usb mouse are capable of being set to wake my computer from sleep (both are currently set not to wake the computer); it makes no mention of the keyboard.

I'm resigned to the idea that i will need to edit my registry, replace my keyboard drivers, or something equally intensive to prevent my keyboard from waking my computer, but i definitely want to do so. If it matters, i have the computer set only to go into s3 sleep, and have disabled hibernation. Any ideas?
