A few days ago, my Windows 7 PC started to have problems with the OS hanging up when coming out of Sleep Mode. I first noticed it when I saw that the icon in the system tray for the internet connection had a red "X" thru it. Then, when trying to start a program, nothing would happen except that the little blue circle would spin around for about 30 seconds before disappearing again. When I clicked the Start button and clicked Shut Down, the menu froze and the only way to get out of the situation was to hold the power button to force a power off condition. When powering on again, I selected "Start Windows Normally" and everything was fine again. This probably happens about every fifth or sixth time I put the computer in Sleep Mode.

 

If anyone has any insight into this, I would appreciate the help. Thanks...!!!

Louis,

 

I will check the things referenced in the article. The person posting on MSN stated that their keyboard and mouse did not work. On my computer, the mouse works fine and both the mouse and keyboard are wireless. I've had the computer for 2.5 years and up until now it has been fine. But I will see if any of the things in the article will fix this.

 

Thanks.

if you read posting on sleep mode, people have issues with it all the time and can be very tiresome trying to fix them.

Most experts will tell you to disable sleep & hibernate modes and just shut off your computer completely to avoid these kinds of issues.

 

besides windows needs a good reboot at least once a week if not more to run good.  and when you throw in a sleep or hibernate you just adding to the fire.

After thinking back on the situation, I remember that last year I was having a different problem when coming out of Sleep mode. What I was getting then was the BSOD which included a message stating that a log file was being generated, but the message went away so fast that I could never get the file name or location. But then that problem went away and didn't come back again until a couple of weeks ago when the OS just started hanging up when coming out of Sleep.

 

Where it was happening a couple of times a day last week, it hasn't happened at all for the last couple of days, now. I always shut down the computer at the end of the day. I think that I'll just let this go and deal with it as it comes up.

Sleep and hibernate normally work very well, especially if the computer is recent. I did have trouble with sleep a couple of years ago on an older computer. Then, for another reason, I had to change my power supply. Interestingly, that fixed the sleep mode problem right away and it never came back! I only use sleep mode in the day when away from the computer for a couple hours. Otherwise, especially for the night, I always shut down the computer.
