sleep problem... who to blame?


T

Troy McClure

64bit Ultimate, nVidia 8800GTS with a pathetic 100.59 beta driver (thanks
for the promised "final" driver that was supposed to be ready when Vista
went retail)

anyhoo... the computer goes to sleep, but when the mouse is moved and the
computer wakes up, the monitor never comes back on and no video is
displayed. powering the monitor on and off does nothing, the monitor stays
in the sleep state. I eventually have to do a hard reset to reboot the
computer.

is this Vista, or could it be the video driver?

Happens to me sometimes, and I have an ATi card. Vista has many issues with
waking from Sleep mode. I get lots of things not working until I reboot in
frustration.

Mixture it seems - I get the same problem and I'm pretty sure its the
drivers, but figuring out which is the culprit is hard this early on in the
life of Vista as most drivers are not as good as they should be, it could be
my ATI card, my e-SATA drive, soundcard, LifeCam, Zune, Bluetooth, Monitor
etc - anything. My view is that its either the soundcard or ATI drivers so
I'm stuck with the problem occurring now and then, in the meantime I mostly
just shutdown now.
