    No I am using my keyboard. All other funtcions on the computer work. The computer recognises that it has installed tuners, but neither will pick up signal unless it has been shut down and restarted.



    Note the problem is the same from both s1 and s3 sleep modes.

I recently dealt with the same problem. Client had upgraded to Vista on a Gigabyte M-board equipped desktop, and sound was absent until reboot, whenever PC was aroused. Client wanted me to reinstall Vista. Installed with all peripherals connected and loaded all unrecognized drivers after install. Still same problem, and nmoticed many other features disappeared after wake-up as well (extra/dedicated keyboard functions, scroll wheel on mouse, PCI-based PCMCIA card and the modem!). Sound was all my client cared about, so I wrote mfg. and got this response: Our driver is OK, follows all Vista uniform specs and addresses S1/S3 properly, but Vista does not have all its wake up from suspend/hibernate resolved, for many of our components/drivers. This is a Vista problem that MS assures us is being addressed". Client was not happy with "waiting for MS to address the envelope, please" so we reinstalled XP 64b and all works fine now. This is also your choice: wait till MS-hell freezes over, -or go back to XP. (or install Linux). Sorry. Apparently, some Vista problems just can't be "addressed yet".

Sleep/hibernate mode


Hi, If the computer seem to wake from sleep mode for no reason? Some device settings can cause the computer to return from a power savings state when not expected. If the computer is using an optical mouse, changes in light can cause the computer to wake. Network activity can cause the network hardware to wake the computer, especially when the network is always on (like cable and DSL connections). High Definition Audio audio may also cause the computer to wake from sleep mode. Use the following steps to prevent the these hardware devices from waking the computer:
  1. Click Start c00847244.gif , and then right-click Computer .
  2. Select Properties , and then click Device Manager in the left panel of the window.
  3. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to the device that needs to be adjusted. If you are using an optical mouse, select Mice and other pointing devices . If the computer is using an "always-on" connection, click Network Adapters . To check the high definition audio, click Sound, video, and game controllers .
  4. Double-click the name of the device to open a Properties window.
  5. Click the Power Management tab, and remove the selection from Allow this device to wake the computer . Figure 6: Power management tab for a mouse c00851648.gif NOTE: If you prevent the mouse from being able to wake the comuter, wake the computer using the Sleep button on the keyboard or from the power button on the front of the computer.
  6. Click OK , close the windows that are open, and then restart the computer.
  7. Click Start c00847244.gif , and select the Sleep/Standby button to see the problem still exists: If the problem still exists, go to the next Step.
  8. Disconnect all non-essential connected devices (printers, scanners, USB drives).
  9. Restart the computer with only the original mouse, monitor, and keyboard connected. If this resolves the sleep/standby problem, one of the connected devices was causing the problem. Replace one device and test to see if the problem occurs again. Continue adding devices and testing until the you find the device that is causing the problem.
If you have already tried all the above steps, you can try the steps below: Many software components start up automatically and run without being seen. Most of these programs are not necessary to the work performed on a computer, but can interfere with sleep/standby mode. For troubleshooting purposes use the following steps to prevent programs from starting when Windows is first opened.
  1. Click Start c00847244.gif , and then type msconfig into the Search field and then press the Enter key.
  2. The System Configuration Utility appears. Click the General tab, select Selective startup , and then and remove the check from Load startup items . c00847247.png
  3. Click OK to accept the changes and restart the computer.
  4. After completing these steps, Windows opens using Selective Startup. A small reminder may appear when Windows restarts. Select Don't show this dialog again and click OK to prevent the reminder from re-appearing every time the computer is restarted.
NOTE: To undo the changes made in this process repeat the steps above and replace the checkmark next to Load startup items .
  • If disabling Load startup items did not resolve the suspend problem, go to the next step.
  • If disabling Load startup items resolved the suspend problem, enable one startup item and test to see if the problem occurs again. Continue enabling startup items, until you find the software task that is causing the problem. Remove or update problem software.
If the problem still exists, go to the next Step. Upgrading the BIOS and keyboard software If the sleep button on the keyboard still does not work, go to the HP Software and Driver Download page , enter your computer model number into the field provided, and install any keyboard and BIOS updates for Windows Vista. Should you require any further assistance regarding this issue or any other computer related issue in future please feel free to contact get back to us, we will be more than glad to assist you.

If I were you I would just press and hold the power button on your computer tower until it shut's off and then turn the computer back on. I assume that since you were shutting it down that you had nothing important open, so forcing it to shut down won't hurt anything.

Hi,

On most computers, you can resume working by pressing your computer's power button. However, not all computers are the same. You might be able to wake your computer by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse button, or opening the lid on a laptop.

It just need an interruption to wake from the sleep mode so its perfectly ok to do so by any key or by the power key....

For any further guidelines give a comment...

Sleep mode wakes up on it's own


turning off all the power saving items does not help this- it just ensures that it doesn't automatically power down your hard drive or shut off power to your monitor automatically when you aren't using it.
May I suggest Hibernation Mode as an alternative? this mode saves everything you are doing to disc and shuts your computer down completely. when you turn it back on, it will restore what you were last doing onto the screen, so you can pick up where you left off.
you can find more information on this and sleep mode from here: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/335c6a5d-0304-4af1-b135-6bf6c124dc111033.mspx#EZAAC

Vista wakes up on it's own. Never goes to sleep.


Sounds like you've tried all the obvious things. Did you check the BIOS settings and turn off all of the WAKE ON settings in there? Otherwise, it sounds like you might have a third party program which is scheduling without your knowledge (check your start up programs and running processes during normal use). If, when asleep, the machine runs a fan, it may also be waking up for the OS to receive a power or overheat warning message from the BIOS.

Problems with machines not going to sleep when asked are often related to drivers that are not unloading when asked to prepare for the sleep/hibernation process. If you have installed any new hardware (or driver heavy software like specialized encryption or hard drive management stuff) trying uninstalling it and testing the sleep functionality.

Ideas, anyway.
