Very nicely done. Thank you.
Windows not resuming from hibernation properly? Well this might be an answer for you. There is a utility from Micro$oft called Devcon that can disable and enable devises for you that should help sort the mess. Trouble is it isn't very user friendly and seeing lots of people struggling with it over on another thread I decided to do this tutorial. So grab your copy here and see if it helps you out. It is written for the complete beginner so goes through the absolute basics.
It isn't a guaranteed fix but if windows wont come out of hibernation or some USB devices don't work properly when it does then this is well worth a go.
Usual applies have a read through it first before you start messing about and if you still don't understand it then leave it alone as I am not going to be responsible if you break your machine, although it's unlikely.
Any questions, ask away and I will see if I can help you out.
Thanks for the write up! This has fixed my GPS locking issues.
Glad it helped you out jonDubya.
No problem Bugbyte good thinking.
Will these fixes work when running windows on a Mac Mini running boot camp? I understand that there are a lot of problems with waking up windows after its been to sleep. Thanks for your help.
worked like a charm, thanks! i just disabled and enabled my entire usb hub, so everything connected to it started working fine.
here's a neat question:
two of my devices (TS and BT) have the same ID: PID_0001. When I use the disable command it disables both. What can I do?
EDIT: nvm, i got it. just use any other part of the hwid name, but NOT including any '&'s. For me, I had to use everything before the PID
I have tried your solution but it doesn't seem to work.
After resume, the blue light of the stick is off ; I run the code with the right PID for my Bluetooth USB stick but I get a response that tell me that the device doesn't exist. Like it wasn't pluged.
I am obliged to unplug and plug the stick back to make it work.
this procedure can be done for non usb devices? like a ide dvd drive?
