Hi all. I've explored several troubleshooting topics on my computer about power saving modes, but none addressed my problem.

My problem being, on my new Win7 Ultimate x64 custom-built machine, sometimes when I put it into sleep mode from the start button it reboots instead, and upon rebooting tells me that Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown (after asking me if I want to start in safe mode, etc), OR it will go to sleep when I tell it to from the start button, but it won't wake up. When I press the power button, it restarts as if I had shut it down, not put it to sleep, and I get the same message as described above.

If needed, I can copy and paste the details from what the message tells me went wrong, the next time it happens. I know it says blue screen, then it gives a lot of techie details which I don't understand.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Assuming, it's a desktop, forget about any power savings features.
No need for them and I don't think, MS will be able to make them work flawlessly, even in Windows 27.

I just got a new SSD and installed fresh win7 pro. If the computer goes to sleep, it won't wake up - however, I get nothing on-screen when I try to wake up. I hear the fans start moving, a couple lights come on, then it loses power and tries again (will keep on failing til I pull the plug). Solution? Don't put the computer to sleep. Haven't found an actual fix yet - this is with the Kingston 64GB SSD.

I get pretty much the same problems, when it goes on standby after leaving it alone for over 15 minutes, it won't wake up when I come back to it, or it will, but it'll take a LOT of mouse jiggling and keystrokes to do so. I don't know if there is a fix, but I haven't found one yet...

Thanks, all. Appreciate the feedback.

You're all pretty much right that there's no need for sleep mode. I was so used to my nine-year-old XP machine taking a full five minutes to boot up, and being that my new machine boots up in probably 30 seconds, I'll just turn it off when it's not in use.

Good luck to all with the same problem if you wish to use sleep mode.
