    Laptop shutting down when put into standby


    Hey guys, hope you're having a nice day....

    I'm having a weird problem with my HP Elitebook 8560w where it will shut down after either closing the lid or pressing the power button. In power options I have it set so that when these actions are performed, the laptop goes into standby.

    I'm running Windows 10, 64-bit

    I exported this from the Event Viewer which will hopefully help diagnose the issue http://www.filedropper.com/events_1

  2. Standby shuts computer down

    I either used the START>WINDOWS PANEL>STANDBY or more frequently clicking my desktop icon for Standby which is a function of using :-

    %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState

    With the desktop icon, if Hibernate is enabled, it Hibernates. If Hibernate is not enabled, it goes to Standby. This still works OK with Hibernate enabled, but with Hibernate not enabled instead of going to Standby, it shuts down the computer.

    Start>Windows Panel>Standby also shuts down the computer.

  3. Standby shuts computer down

    Hello Norton,

    It is set at Standby, always has been and I do not have a Standby switch back time limit, it is set to "Never"

    That earlier thread (around 2007) was a long one involving so many complex suggestions I thought that the entire computer had been regenerated from new. You know how the OP solved it after turning it inside out ? He fiddled about with Ad-Aware. Don`t know exactly what he did, but Standby worked OK after this surgery. I do not have Ad-Aware.

    Laptop shutting down when put into standby

    My computer shuts down instead of going into standby...

    Ok, I let my computer go into standby after 30 minutes.... Well instead of just going into standby it just says no thanks I'll shut down... Getting very annoying and I can't figure out for the life of me why it wont just go into standby..

    Oh, its not just power loss either, I left my speakers on last night and it made the wonderful windows shut down tones.
