Sony :: Vaio VGN-Z46GD Will Not Sleep/hibernate


I have a Vaio VGN-Z46GD, that will not sleep/hibernate and now will not shut down either.
When I shut the lid, it sleeps for about 15 seconds and then wakes again.

Also, the same when I click the sleep button.

Sony :: Hibernate Or Sleep Mode
thought that hibernate was better because it turns off the computer and saves battery except on my laptop the power button is defaulted to sleep so I would have thought that they would default it to that for a reason.

Sony :: Sleep And Hibernate Issues Post Vista SP3
Ever since Vista SP2, I have been experiencing issues with my Z690 Vaio. Wih hibernate, the laptop just restarts when I try to resume and gives the improper shutdown error. With sleep, sometimes the laptop refuses to start or gives the BSOD. Sony support, as usual has been lackluster.

Dell :: Vista Biz Hibernate/sleep Clunkyness
Hibernate take a really long time to shut down, twice as long as shut down. the first thing that happens is that the monitor shuts off and then hard drive works for a while

Sleep is even clunkier. turns off monitor, it takes a few minutes to complete, sometimes when i use the FN+F1 combo it comes back on, when I close the lid usually works, but sometimes it doesn't.

at times hibernate won't work and stops in the middle of it, forcing me to shut of the laptop. then on restart it freezes a couple of times on the desktop and earlier I even got the BSOD.

Sony :: Vaio Z (590) Coming Out Of Hibernate During Night For No Reason
I put my new laptop into hibernate and into my laptop bag. At about 3 am (I looked at event log) it seems to over the last few days come out of hibernation and come on. Within 10 minutes it goes back to sleep/hibernate. This happens while I am not even touching it. Would this have caused any damage (heat while in bag)? I doubt it but it is new and I am paranoid! Also for now I am just shutting down if the laptop is not plugged in and not in use.

Sony :: VGN-Z46GD Clean Windows 7 Install
I purchased a Sony VAIO VGN-Z46GD and was eligible for the Windows 7 Upgrade program. So my Windows 7 Disc & Supplement Disc arrived in no time. I did a CLEAN install with the Windows 7 Disc wiping everything (this was intentional).

The problem is the Supplement Disc will not run at all, gives me an error (is there a way to force it?). I used the mod2wim tool to extract all WIM's from it however I have had no success in getting my VAIO special buttons working, power management or my function keys operational. The extracted WIM's are also a bit odd, includes ATi drivers when clearly my machine is hybrid intel/nvidia.

From what I have read on the Forums I need to install things in a specific order. Also if I can't find my drivers where can I look to re-download them?

Sony :: Trackpad + Mouse + Sleep +vista + Vaio Z
This is specifically occurring on Z590, but may be there in all Z's.

If you have a USB mouse plugged in, and you go to sleep mode, and then disconnect the USB mouse, then when the laptop wakes up again, the trackpad does not work. If you plug-in the mouse at this point, the mouse works fine, but the trackpad is still entirely disabled. Vaio Control Center indicates the trackpad is still enabled, but no response at all from trackpad.

If you unplug the mouse, go to sleep, and wake up, the trackpad now works fine.

I am not sure when this bug was introduced, but can anyone replicate it as well? The trackpad seems to get disabled upon wakeup from sleep if the USB mouse was unplugged AFTER going into sleep mode.

Sony :: Vaio Zhibernation And Sleep Causes Computer To Crash
I'm having the following issue with myVaio-Z550n:

On random occasions, when I set the computer to sleep or hibernate (they seem to trigger this problem equally), the computer screen will go black, the fan kicks into a steady overdrive and on/off button's green led remains solidly lit -as if the computer were still on.

The only way to fix the problem is to manually power down the computer by depressing the the on/off button.

It happened under Windows 7 RC and it is happening under Windows 7 32-bit home premium as well. I haven't used Vista for quite sometime so I don't know if is an OS-triggered issue.

Anecdotally, it seems to occur more often when I close the lid to put it into sleep, rather than do it manually through the start menu.

It also appears to be occuring with more regularity in recent days. Before it was like 10% of the time... now it is something like 30%.

Sony :: Vaio Z: USB Flash Drive Not Mounting Or Very Slow Mounting After Sleep
I am having this problem with my USB flash drive (USB HDD powered from the USB itself seems to work fine). My flash drives are not operational after waking up from sleep in Vista. After a minute or so, it finally goes through, and it starts working. But right after sleep, for what seems to be an insanely long time, it doesn't respond at all. If I reconnect the flash drive, it starts working instantly.

Anybody have this problem with your Z and Vista?

Sony :: Touchpad Does Not Work After Sleep

Sony :: Why Does My Z Turn Back On After Sleep Mode
After I put my laptop on sleep mode and shut the lid down, I always see the computer turn back on automatically after only a few minutes (I can hear the laptop working and the light turns green, although the monitor remains off).

Why is this so? The laptop also seems to turn off after a while it is turned back on from sleep mode.

I also notice my Z having a particular video error at times. That is, sometime, the laptop monitor turns black for a few seconds, turns back on at the highest brightness setting, and a error message pops up saying something about how it was unable to find a driver.

i am using integrated graphi card, everytime when the machine wakes up from sleep, and if the external power is unpluged, the screen starts to flicker, and windows 7 reports "displayer driver stopped working and have been recovered", looks like a driver problem, but i have downloaded from the driver from sony website and intel website, none of them solves this problem.

Dell :: When I Do Hibernate => Restarts
First of all i want to say i have a dell xps 1530, Vista.
Recentrly ive reinstalled vista and now i have something strange going on.

When i got to start (i dont use button) and click on hibernate, notebook save data and when he is about to shut down, it just starts all over, the data doesnt go loss, so it starts the same as i did leave it in hibernate.

The strange thing is that, when i after this try to shut down it restarts again, so the only thing left to do for me to push the button so it just manualy shuts down.

One more thing, when i start again, and i direcly try to hibernate or shut down then it does his job, everything happens as it should be.

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 Won't Come Out Of Hibernate
I put my Inspiron 9300 into hibernate this morning, tried to wake it back up and all I'm getting aftet the Dell logo and status bar (POST) is a black screen with a blinking cursor in the left corner.

When I hit the Play button on the front of the notebook, it brings up the Dell Media Direct logo screen, but nothing happens.

When I boot with my XP CD and go to the recovery console, I can see the hard drive and files, though I can't access most folders because I get an Access Denied message.

I tried booting from my flash drive, but when I do, the flash drive is recognized as the c: drive and the hard drive isn't listed.

I also tried unplugging my laptop and battery and held down the power button for a few minutes to discharge any electricity. No luck.

Dell :: No Standby And Hibernate After Drivers Update
I was trying to update my drivers, I went to dell website and got a few update for my drivers, but now, my computer won't go into standby or hibernate. If I try to go into standby, after I see the "preparing to standby" my computer goes black and the on light still on, then I can't wake the system up I have to press and hold the power button and reestart. When I try to go into hibernate mode after "preparing to hibernate" I see a blue screen with that says something like "an error has happened and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to my system, the problem could be caused by a new software or driver... etc" After I restart it says, your system has recovered from a serious problem and then it ask me to send a report error, I do and then my web browser and open this: [url]I know the problem was a driver that I was trying to update to make my computer work better but instead it messed up. How do I undo the updated drivers?

Not sure if anyone else is running into this but I will put my computer into hibernate by closing the lid and toss it in my bag. Works for about 5-7 hibernates and then sometimes it will look like it is hibernating, but the machine never turns off. I open the lid and see that the keyboard backlight is on and the num lock or caps lock will go on and off, but I can't get the screen back. I can only hold down the power button for 5 seconds and then restart.

HP/Compaq :: DV4 Seemingly Randomly Going Into Hibernate Mode
i just picked up the new laptop (specs below in sig) and have noticed a few hiccups.

I just got it yesterday, and when initially setting it up, that silly "HP start up" software seemed to lock up more then once (with the silly hands moving around n blah blah blah.) Well eventually had to restart and with that crap out of the way, set things up normally. Got everything updated. Wifi's working well, all windows updates out of the way, etc.

However during all this 2 times my computer randomly went into hibernate mode. It wasn't like I'd left it idle for long. I mean i may have left it go for a minute or two w/o interacting with it (while it was plugged in.) I had also altered the power settings to not go into sleep or hibernate while it was plugged in , which it was.

I could tell it hibernated by the start up screen saying "resuming windows." Well as an experiment after playing around with power settings and so forth, i left it on all nite while plugged in. In the morning today it was still on and running fine.

Sony :: VAIO- If A VAIO Had No Ram Should (if All Else Was Working) It Be Getting POST Beeps
I have just been given a VAIO PCG8A2M (GRX316MP) , i was told "it's broken but if you can fix it yo can have it" so having a quick look at it there's no sign of life on the display but the lights come on and i can here the HDD heads moving about.

Looking a little more i found that all the ram is missing , so now im not sure if its worth buying some ram to see if it works or not ? The lack of ram would prob explain the lack of display but i wonder if i should be getting POST beeps at least, which im not.

So my question is if a VAIO had no ram should (if all else was working) it be getting POST beeps ?

I have recently had a problem where the computer (when lid is open and computer goes to sleep) will not come out of sleep. The sceen stays blank and will not wake up (odd, when screen is closed-- it will wake up from sleep mode, just not when computer goes to sleep with lid open). No key actions will prompt a wake up and I have to do a hard shut down with the power button.

Computer is running "Snow Leopard" (installed when Snow Leopard was released) and everything else has been running fine.

I have done a "Permissions Repair" to date

Sony :: (Old) VAIO Z BD Drive Fit In (New) VAIO Z Series
I'm wondering if the Blu-ray optical drive (Panasonic UJ-232A) of the (old) VAIO Z series will be able to fit into the (new) VAIO Z series? I would really appreciate it if anyone is able to answer my question.

The reason I'm asking is because I'm seriously thinking of selling my VAIO Z690 & just buying the base Sony VAIO Z (VPCZ112GX/S). I may just be able to afford that base model & the icing on the cake will definitely be the UJ-232A drive being able to fit into the (new) VAIO Z series & work.

Dell :: Laptop Won't Sleep!
Recently I noticed that my laptop doesn't automatically sleep like it used to. I have the option set to '1 Hour' for it to sleep, but it just doesn't seem to work.

The screen turns off at the correct time and that, but sleep never kicks in.

It used to work fine. It worked perfectly to the point that it got annoying when downloading my larger Steam games as it would pause the download, so I would disable it (set time to 'Never') whilst downloading. I defaulted it back to '1 Hour' after my download had complete however.

Even when I set sleep to 3 or 4 minutes it still had the same problem. Also to note: I have my laptop plugged in to the AC (it's not running off battery) .....

Dell :: M4400 Sleep
When my Precision M4400 goes to sleep after I close the lid, it sometimes turns itself back on without opening the lid back up (it gets rather hot and the fan is running by the time I go to use the computer again, however, I believe the screen stays off).

This has really started to bother me lately as the heat cannot be good for the computer and I always have to turn the computer off by holding the power button after it does this because the screen won't turn back on.

HP/Compaq :: DV5 1022- When It Goes Sleep
I bougth my HP DV5 1022 three days ago, everything worked perfect, but when the computer is not being used and it turns off the screen to "hibernate" or "sleep", when i move the mouse to wake it up appears the welcome screen but immediately the screen turns black and does not answer. The computer is on and the screen is black, not turned off, black.

I tried moving mouse, pushing all butons, closing the laptop, and the screen is dead yet.

Why? is perhaps an operative system bad installation? (vista)
or the model HP DV5 1022 is simply..... garbage?

I'm very worried because i can't download movies and archives when i'm sleeping, because when i wake up to see the progress, the pc screen dead.

HP/Compaq :dv5 Won't Sleep; Temps
I have a dv5 that recently decided it didn't want to go to sleep when I closed the lid. I checked the settings to make sure they hadn't accidentally been changed, but it's still set to sleep. I have not made any other changes or installed any additional software. how I can get it back to sleep?

I'm using HWMonitor to monitor temps, and it does not show my hd temp. However, I am concerned about the temps it does show (THRM? and processor).

My dv5 used to run at an average of 80C, and saw temps as high as 95C while streaming video. I sent it in for repairs and the temps have since dropped, but still seem high (Currently 50C, high of 86C while streaming video). Should I send it back for repair- again?

I just grabbed the latest drivers from Dell for the 3700m. Does anyone have any ideas? I did do some basic optimization for SSD like removing the page file, turning off readyboost and superfetch.

I will probably redo these and see if it comes back. Any ideas

Dell :: Studio 17 Randomly Going To Sleep
I've been having this issue for about a week or so. I thought perhaps it was because I updated the ATI driver, but I did a rollback and the issue still persists.

I have checked my battery settings and nothing stands out. I don't have my laptop set to go to sleep under any circumstances other then closing the lid, but during operation it will just go to sleep.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? I'm running Windows 7 64-bit. When it goes to sleep, sometimes the power button is unresponsive in waking the computer back up. It will take quite a while before I am able to do anything to get the computer back up and running.
