Hi,

New to the forums and looking for a little help. I am running Vista Home Premium. A few weeks ago I started getting BSODs when my computer sleeps. It does not BSOD every time but probably around 75% of the time. Let me know what info I need to provide; this is starting to drive me a little nuts <_<

Thanks!
John

1) What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

2) While hibernation and sleep work fine for many, they also cause problems on some systems. It has always been my preference (and suggestion) to just set the hd and display to power down after a defined period of inactivity. It works for everyone.

The only thing that could have changed is a windows update; however I did not note the exact day time this first occurred. I am pretty diligent about malware and do not think this is an issue. Sleep has worked for me for a number of years with no issue. Any thoughts on troubleshooting steps? Thanks.

Well, if you know the date it first occurred you can try system restore to a previous date. But as I said, I wouldn't use sleep anyway.

I don't have a restore point that far back. Anyone else have some ideas?
