So this is an issue I haven't seen before and it seems to be pretty obscure. I leave my computer on 24/7 and it eventually goes to sleep and then into hibernation. I have two SSDs in a hardware RAID 0 config and most of the time when the computer wakes up it is fine. But every so often when the computer wakes up it can't see the SSDs in RAID 0. Intel Rapid Storage will report that one of the drives has failed, but a quick reboot brings the RAID 0 back up every time so I don't think it is a hardware failure. plus all the hard ware is brand new.

 

Also often times when the computer wakes back up, Intel Rapid Storage will report that drive 0 and drive 1 in the raid were disconnected and then reconnected. The RAID will often perform fine after this. I am thinking it has to do with some sort of setting that turns the hard drives off or something or maybe it is just a property of the computer going into hibernation.

 

Anyone got any ideas on how to remedy this issue?

Try changing your power States in the BIOS to S3 (sleep 3) instead of allowing the computer to fully hibernate (S4). You can also try looking in the Advanced section of the power menu in Windows for the "turn off hard drives after idle" setting and select never.

I changed the Power state to S3 and disabled hibernation entirely. I also set it to never turn idle hard drives off. Still getting RAID 0 failures every now and then.

Back up your RAID before proceeding.

 

Well, you can install the latest BIOS revision.

 

You can update the following drivers: INF (chipset), ME, RST and Ethernet to the latest.  I presume you don't have wifi on the system?

 

I presume these are matched SSDs you are running.  Make sure their firmware is up to date.

 

All can effect sleep modes. 

 

You should run memtest86 or memtest86+ as faulty RAM can account for wake issues. 

 

Disabling "fast startup" in Win 8 or Win 10 has been reported to clear up hibernation wake issues.  And the OS is it up to date? http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/jj835779%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

 

Truthfully a lot of hardware and a lot of apps are involved in sleep mode and in causing issues for sleep mode.  And then you toss a RAID array using SSDs in there.  That is a lot of perturbations.

All the chipsets appear to be up to date, SSDs are matched and their firmware are both the latest version. Running on Windows 10 and it is up to date.

 

 

I am installing a newer BIOS update to see if that does anything.
