Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
Hi, my windows xp pro hangs when I resume from having put it on standby or hibernate. It goes into the two states no problem, and resuming is ok except once I can view my desktop all the applications i left running stop responding and new windows or folders won't open, until I restart - by hitting the reset button. Any help will be appreciated.
There are many reasons this can happen, and unfortunately very difficult to pinpoint the issue in a particular case.
1. In your system BIOS there is usually two sleep mode (power states) you can select. It is Usually set to S3, change it to S1 (or vice versa), and disable wake on LAN (if available) unless you need it
2. Attempt a clean boot and see if some background startup item or service is causing the issue. see this article for troubleshooting startup items
3. Make sure you drivers (especially chipset, network, video and sound) and BIOS are up to date.
4. Disconnect as many things as you can (boot with just your keyboard, mouse and monitor) try a different mouse and keyboard.
I hope you find the cause, also check in Event Viewer to see if there are corresponding errors
