Hey, since several month, i got a really annoying bug, that prevent the option for my system to sleep automatically (no S3, no Monitor Off) - it worked only when i put it manual to sleep... Before some days, i decided to play a little bit Fallout 4 again, but i got more bugs, than i normally know from this game (like crashes, or Loading screen Forever), so i have to force the closing of the .exe by Task manager... Then i saw, that a "GameBarPresenceWriter.exe" was running, and thought that 2015 (where the game was released), there wasn't a gaming mode, a game bar or similar, So i decided, to move all "Game*" Files out of the windows' directory, (you need trusted installer rights for that, or the NTFS rights to move them...) - Moved Files: GameBarPresenceWriter (Folder) GameBarPresenceWriter.exe GameBarPresenceWriter.proxy.dll GameChatOverlayExt.dll GameChatTranscription.dll GameInput.dll gamemode.dll GamePanel.exe GamePanelExternalHook.dll gamestreamingext.dll GameSystemToastIcon.contrast-white.png GameSystemToastIcon.png gameux.dll gamingtcui.dll Restarted the PC, and run my game again (not sure if i fixed the game bug), but when i played, and made a break, to do something else (game was running), my monitor gone off, and i wondered what happened - moved the mouse, and the monitor was back alive! I close the game, and waited, and my PC gone into S3 again! - WOW! (I could not fix this problem for so long...) Some of this files (i even didn't know, that some of them was running - cause i didnt see them normally in task manager), just prevent the sleep Function (or maybe just one file, or a reg entry from one of this files) Anyway i decided to share it with you! I will personally not go deeper into this - like moving single files, with multiple restarts, or de-register them, etc I am Happy that my PC can now gone to sleep again, cause i absolutely didn't like it, when i fall to sometimes sleep and waked up 8 hours later, that the PC and Monitor were fully on...
Hi All I have scoured the internet to find a fix to my issue but unfortunately I cannot. I have posted to several communities I am a part of and none have been able to provide results. I have a Lenovo Yoga 13 netbook running Windows 8. History: I recently had some BCD issues where I accidentally altered my boot entries. However I fixed that and it now boots fine. I confirmed with another user from the Lenovo support forums that our boot entries are the same if not similar. In addition I have rebuilt them using bootrec and bootsect. After I fixed the BCD issue my PC has had issues shutting down, hibernating and sleeping. I'm not sure if it's related to the BCD issue, but it may be. Fixing the BCD involved a lot of booting from disks and is generally a bit messy. However, it can restart fine. It can also resume from a hibernated session, however it still hangs going into hibernation. Behaviour: Shutting down results in it seemingly exiting the programs (I know because sometimes it will say a certain program is stopping it from shutting down, do you want to force shut down), then it turns the screen off. However the fan still runs and the power light is still on. Referring to MagicAndre's guide, I think it is at the kernelshutdown stage Sleep/Hibernate is the same. What I've tried: I've looked at the recommended methods Turn off fast startTurn off dynamictickI've also rebuilt the BCD using bootrec and bootsect.I've tried startup repair from Windows Recovery, but that says it cannot find winload.efi (which seems to indicate to me that there are still BCD related issues).I've reset the BIOS.I've reinstalled drivers and run windows updateI've run it in safe mode with services and programs disabled. shutdown /s /f /t 0 doesnt workRemoved all peripheralsAnd others that've slipped from memory.Finally, I found the trace method today. I ran the shutdown trace but that simulated a restart so it ran smoothly. If I try to trace sleep or hibernate it crashes and the trace produces nothing. I've posted a question in that thread asking for help for that specific issue already. However my shutdown trace is attached in case anyone can glean anything from it. Yes I did try it with logmein disabled but that didnt work either! I've done my research, i've wracked my brain but nothing! Really hope someone is able to help. Appreciate your time to read this (long) post. Thank you!! summary_shutdown.xml
