Hybrid-sleep, Win7 trying to solve a strange problem.
I recently changed to a larger backup battery and decided to give sleep mode another try.
1. Sleep/resume works perfectly.
2. Hibernate/resume works perfectly.
When I say they work independently and perfectly I mean each can resume day in and day out perfectly! So there are NO hardware/SW issues with USB, drivers, software, video or the SSD.
If I enable Hybrid sleep the PC will resume from sleep in 2 seconds perfectly – every time.
My reasons for wanting to use this mode is to allow for a quick resume from hibernate if +5v standby power fails.
Now when using hibernate alone you can do ANYTHING to +5v SB. You can remove USB devices when powered down, you can remove all power and reconnect and the PC will resume from Hibernate perfectly, as it should, every time.
It NEVER fails to resume from hibernate.
It NEVER fails to resume from sleep.
If “Hybrid Sleep” is enabled and I remove +5v SB, the PC will correctly try and resume from the hibernate file, however it fails every time right at the end of resume with a black screen and blinking cursor in the top LH corner.
Windows MUST be doing something different when it writes the hibernate file in Hybrid sleep as opposed to Hybrid alone.
Anyone had/having a similar problem?
