  1. PC will not always transition properly from sleep to hibernate


    Hello,


    I am trying to troubleshoot an issue where my laptop will not properly transition from sleep to hibernate mode automatically. The Hibernate function itself works just fine - I can activate it from the Start menu successfully. Also, it seems there is a relation to how long I set the wait period in the Power Plan settings. The laptop has consistently transitioned from S3 to S4 if I set the timeout period to 20 minutes or less. However, if I set the time to something closer to 30 minutes or greater, the laptop will wake from S3, but the display will light up and the laptop will NOT transition to Hibernate automatically. Instead, it stays awake until it reaches S3 timeout to go back to sleep.


    I have run powercfg /systempowerreport and noticed there is a distinct difference between when the laptop successfully transitions to Hibernate, and when it does not.

    • When it transitions successfully, the S3 Exit event is S4 Doze to Hibernate
    • When it does NOT transition successfully, the S3 Exit event is Device - ACPI Wake Alarm


    I have tried creating new Power Plans, have updated my drivers, have the latest BIOS and EC firmware available for my laptop (MSI GS75), but cannot figure out this issue.


    What could be causing this issue?

    :)

    Transition from sleep to hibernate fails

    I have a problem with my laptop not hibernating from sleep following the creators edition update.

    Before the update I had my machine set to sleep after 20 minutes and hibernate after 30 minutes

    For my usage this worked perfectly, if I didn't wake the machine up from sleep then

    I would probably not be back for some time so would hibernate to save power.

    Following the creators update my laptop would sleep fine but when it wakes to hibernate it fails and

    goes back to sleep. This repeats for ever until I wake the machine.

    If I manually hibernate the laptop it works fine.

    I have tracked the problem down to a wake timer being set for a backup to a server running Windows Home Server 2011.

    This wake timer prevents hibernating from sleep even if the wake timer is set for many hours in the future.

    If I disable the task that sets this wake timer the sleep then hibernate operation works as it used to but

    of course the backup never runs.

    If I change the power option for wake timers to important events only the laptop works as it used to but it does not wake up

    to carry out the backup.

    I have carried out a number of tests and have discovered that any wake timer that is timed within 24 hours of the

    attempt to go from sleep to hibernate will cause the transition to fail.

    Could someone please test this as I can't believe this is how Microsoft designed it!!

  3. Hibernation and Sleep not working on my WIndows 10 PC after latest update

    Hello,

    There are many possible reasons for this hibernation and sleep not working issue. The most common causes are
    corrupted Power settings or outdated display drivers. In order for us to efficiently assist you with your concern regarding the issue of waking up from sleep/hibernation, we just have a few questions for you:

    • Have you made any recent changes to your computer prior to the issue?
    • Did you get any error messages upon waking up your computer from hibernation/sleep?
    • Have you also tried performing the power troubleshooter?
    If you still haven't, we suggest trying the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + W and type Troubleshooting.
    • Select Troubleshooting and click on System and Security.
    • Click on Power and follow the onscreen steps.

    Delete the current power plan and create it again.

    We're looking forward to your reply.

  4. PC will not always transition properly from sleep to hibernate

    Hibernate mode Vs Sleep Vs Hybrid sleep.

    I beg to differ. Hibernation is for whatever situation hibernation is needed for, be it on a desktop or a laptop. For instance, desktop users who suffer from frequent blackouts would rather opt for hibernation instead of sleeping.

    AFAIK, Sleep and Hibernate functions don't alter critical system files, so I don't think any permanent damage should occur. Worst I've seen are devices failing to wakeup properly, and that's easily fixed with a simple restart (or, in some cases, unpluging and repluging the device or restarting related services.)
