This is not a fix for your problem but simply a suggestion. On every computer I have worked on, I have suggested to my clients that they disable "hibernation" and sleep mode. I have had nothing but nightmares in trying fix registry probles associated with these modes. Your computer is just fine running normally withour going to sleep. If you want to save on power, I would suggest shutting down the monitor after a pre-determined time frame, but leave the main processor running as normal. If you go to power options in the control panel, there is a small text that says "advanced power options", there you can have the computer shut down certain peripherals after a pre-determined time frame to also save on power. I tell people though that it is not a matter of if you will have a registrty or crash with these modes....it is a matter of when. Good luck to you.

Hi,

Sleep is more commonly known as Hibernation with Vista.
Sometimes certain updates or freshly installed service packs can mess with your settings, or sometimes disable the feature altogether.

Microsoft have released a fix for just this problem.

Go here to Microsoft (link below) read down the page until you see Fix this problem, click on that and then click on Run when prompted.
You should get a message saying that the problem is fixed.

Restart your computer and set your Hibernation settings.

Hope this helps and good luck

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

Curious - What is the moon shaped key all about


this button puts the computer into sleep mode.

FROM WIKIPEDIA-

Sleep mode can go by many different names, including Stand By (Microsoft Windows 95-Server 2003), Sleep (Mac OS 8)-(Mac OS X) / (Windows Vista,Windows Server 2008), and Suspend (Linux). When placed in this Sleep mode, aside from the RAM which is required to restore the machine's state, the computer attempts to cut power to all unneeded parts of the machine. Because of the large power savings, most laptops automatically enter this mode when the computer is running on batteries and the lid is closed.
Though Sleep and Hibernate are generally thought as two separate functions, modern Macintoshes, Windows Vista (termed Hybrid Sleep), and some specially configured Linux machines also feature a variation of Sleep mode that incorporates the strengths of Hibernate. The RAM is copied to the hard drive before sleep mode is initiated, preserving the RAM contents in the event of a power loss.
ACPI is the current standard for power management, superseding APM and providing the backbone for sleep and hibernation on modern computers. Sleep mode corresponds to ACPI mode S3. When a non-ACPI device is plugged in, Windows will sometimes disable stand-by functionality for the whole operating system. Without ACPI functionality, as seen on older hardware, sleep mode is usually restricted to turning off the monitor and spinning down the hard drive.

PC will not stay in sleep mode.


Hi,
it's not a hardware-problem - it's a windows feature smile_wink.gif - (and it really is one !) - please try this:
To prevent a USB mouse from waking your PC

1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.

2. In the list of device categories, expand Mice and other pointing devices.

3. Right-click the entry for the USB mouse, and then click Properties.

4. On the Power Management tab, clear the Allow this device to wake the computer check box.

5. Click OK.
Don't forget to do this with your mouse + keyboard !

My laptop doesn't hubernate


Not sure whether you are using XP or Vista in your notebook.
However, if you are using Vista, you need to manually enable the Hibernation option since this option will be disabled by default. You can find the instructions to enable or disable Hibernation option in Vista from Microsoft through the link provided below :
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=920730

However, if you are using XP, I recommend you to reinstall the Power management features which should fix the issue by following the instructions provided below :
Please follow the steps to go to Device Manager :

1.  Click Start, select Control Panel, and then choose Performance and Maintenance. 2.  Click the System icon to open the System properties window. 3.  Select the Hardware tab and click Device Manager. 4.  Click the plus (+) sign next to System Devices. 5.  Right-click the ACPI Fixed Features button and select Uninstall. 6.  Restart the system.
Restarting the Computer will automatically reinstall the Power Management features.
Additionally, you an also download and install the latest Chipset Drivers in the Notebook as an alternative.
Hope this works.

IE and Firefox stop responding


Try completely powering down and restarting the computer once in a while. If you always just go into sleep / stand by mode, some software will eventually stop working properly. A friend of mine had the exact same problem, and after I had her reboot (not just sleep/standby) it worked just fine.
