J

jje

Hello,

I am using Windows XP professional on an ASUS P5K Mainboard.
I can use the Standby-Funktion (S3) without problems.
BUT >
After wakeup from Standby the System starts again but in 3 of 4 cases the
system performs after about 15 sec. a shut down.

What can I do?
How can I see, which programm or device causes the shut down.

Are you get a blue screen of death?

Please post copies of the Stop Error Reports.

Disable automatic restart on system failure. This should help by
allowing time to write down the STOP code properly. Right click on
the My Computer icon on the Desktop and select Properties, Advanced,
Start-Up and Recovery, System Failure and uncheck box before
Automatically Restart.

Do not re-enable automatic restart on system failure until you have
resolved the problem. Check for variants of the Stop Error message.

An alternative is to keep pressing the F8 key during Start-Up and select
option - Disable automatic restart on system failure.

If you are using a wireless keyboard and the F8 key does not work
substitute a wired keyboard and mouse for this exercise only.

Hope this helps.

Hello Gerry,

thank you for your answer.

The automatic restart is disabled and I get no blue screen or an other error
message. The computer starts after wackup as expected, the screen shows the
last used situation and all seems to be ok. But in 3 of 4 cases the computer
performs a normal shut down afetr about 15 sec.. The screen comes up with the
normal message that the computer will be shut down and the systems goes down
as usual after a regular shut down.

Is there a possibility to see in a logfile, which programm causes the shut
down process?

Does in anything appear on the System log of Event Viewer?

You can access Event Viewer by selecting Start, Control Panel,
Administrative Tools, and Event Viewer.

A tip for posting copies of Error Reports! Run Event Viewer and double
click on the error you want to copy. In the window, which appears is a
button resembling two pages. Click the button and close Event
Viewer.Now start your message (email) and do a paste into the body of
the message. Make sure this is the first paste after exiting from
Event Viewer.

Otherwise see if anything here helps:

Hello Gerry,

I've tested, but there are no entries in the System log concerning this
problem.

I've also checked the hints in your link. For a short time I tought I've
found a good hint, (Root-Hub > Properties > Energy-Admin) but after some
Standby-Tests the problem was still there.

The systems works very well exept this Standby problem.

Do you have some new idees? Is there another logging tool, to see who
ordered the shutdown process.

Kind regards
Joachim
