    My pc won't sleep/hibernate. It shuts down every time.


    Hey guys,


    My laptop won't sleep/hibernate. It shuts down every time I tried to so.


    I lose all my work/apps/whatever I have opened, every time I try to put it to sleep.


    I formatted my pc on a new SSD a few months ago so a clean install should've cleaned any system malfunction. It didn't though.


    Please help me get over this.


    Thanks


    PS: I started this thread before a few months ago but it was locked without a resolution...

    :)

    Shutting down, hibernating, or sleeping?

    Speaking of ... I just built a new PC with an AMD Kaveri and Windows 7 64 and the option sleep is greyed out, I get shut down and hibernate; it's funny, on my PC (see specs) I get sleep and shut down not hibernate. I tried the bios but I'm clueless. Any ideas?

    Shutting down, hibernating, or sleeping?

    When sleep is grayed out it probably means that you're missing a driver required to do it or rather a device is incapable of going to sleep, but more often than not it's drivers that haven't been installed. I would make sure you're not missing any chipset or something.

    Shutting down, hibernating, or sleeping?

    You may have a device that is not compatiable with sleep states or it could be a driver causing it... like this one ( Sleep Option greyed out ), that was caused by a generic display driver.

    Make sure all your drivers are up to date and all drivers are installed.
    Look in device manager, see if there are any devices that are generic or unknown.

    And, here is an explanation of the BIOS ACPI settings --> Difference between S1 (POS) and S3 (STR) standby mode in BIOS?

    You might want to start a thread, if you want to get into fixing it.
