Standby and Hibernation


Recommended Posts

XPpro/SP3/IE7 I find that when Standby is activated computer shuts down OK, but will never re-open leaving a black screen from which there is no escape other than a "hard" shut down with disconnection from the mains supply

Hibernation, on the other hand, works completely normally and asks to sign in as is usual

Motherboard M3N-HT with AMD quad CPU

I have not tried this in Vista Ultimate 32 or 64 bit

Anyone know why this is happening?

IN BIOS the "Oower" page with Advanced configuration and Power Interface is set to the default "S1&S3" I have tried either S1 or S3 alone and neither made any difference to Standby.

I believe there is something in SP3 which causes the problem as I recall in the days pf SP2 there was no such problem

There have been a number of fixes provided over windows update over the years relating to Resuming from Sleep/Standby so I doubt "in the days pf SP2 there was no such problem". :)

I don't have time to search for more information tonight but if one of the more knowledgeable people doesn't drop by before I read this post tomorrow I will look deeper for you.
