My PC + sleep mode

Found 13th Sep 2009
Whenver I put my pc into sleep mode, it goes crazy (never used too). It wont come back on and my PC beeps. I have to turn off at the plug. Had my desktop for over a year and had no problems, any idea what this is? I am running vista premium


If you find out let me know as mine has started doing the same,


does it shutdown ok and then start up ok?

I'd check your eventlogs (right click my computer, manage, eventviewer) and look for events around the time you tried to put the PC to sleep. It's normal for there to be many entries in here so you need to sift through and try to find any useful entries as that will make it much easier to track down the cause.


Try disabling support for hibernate

and then reboot {may be twice to be sure}

and then enable hibernate and try.

Some times windows doesnt detect the correct ACPI which *may* cause problems.
