spacesurfer Posted May 10, 2009 Share Posted May 10, 2009 When I had Vista SP1 x64, I could put the computer to sleep and it was almost instantaneous. It aslo resumed from sleep instantaneously without a problem.Now, in Windows 7 RC x64, there is a strange occurrence with sleep, although Windows 7's sleep acts more like hibernate than sleep.When I put Windows 7 to sleep, it takes a good few seconds (much longer than Vista) before computer goes to sleep.Then, when I try to resume from sleep, it turns on but I get no video input, leaving me to reset the system. When I do reset the system, it seems to be restarting from POST from the beginning, but the continues to "Resume Windows" as if went into hibernation.And what do you know. All the users are still logged on and no crash report. So it does go into hibernation and not sleep and pressing reset does not really shut the system and cause shutdown error.Well, I'm glad my system is not crashing like in Vista but I really want it to go to sleep, not hibernate.Is this supposed to be a feature or a problem? I should note that this does not happen on my laptop, which does have distinction between sleep and hibernation. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
