... I've noticed that whenever the computer sleeps, whether it's due to inactivity (power settings) or if I manually put it to sleep, it crashes. ... Turning the computer on again brings up the black "Windows did not shut down properly" screen.

-Tim


This happens to my Win 7 Compaq CO5210F also. I Googled this problem and there seem to be many people experiencing the problem. Some of the fixes suggested include upgrading RAM, new video drivers, changing BIOS settings, doing a reinstall, adjusting power saving options. Nobody reports that these "fixes" work.

I am not advanced enough to go messing around with the BIOS because I don't know what I'm doing! I am confused if I should use "sleep" vs. "hibernate" and MS explanations don't clarify which to use and when. I am annoyed when this happens because it always seems to happen when I'm in a hurry or in the middle of a project!

Any suggestions? Should I sleep or hibernate?
