My computer shuts down when going into sleep mode, but I get no video when
resuming along with a single long bios beep. I am unable to do anything but
hit the reset button. Vista then shows resuming but screen goes black with a
flashing cursor and some junk on the screen. I then have to hit reset again
and I am able to boot properly. Any ideas if this has to do with the nvidia
drivers or some bios problem? Not sure what a single long bios post beep
means. I have Pheonix Award Bios. Let me know please if anyone has any
ideas. In the meantime I have disabled all sleep options. Thank you!

You got me all excited for nothing, they were already enabled. Standby
and hibernation worked great under XP.

I am using the following Nvidia driver:

ForceWare Release 95
Version: 97.46
Release Date: January 5, 2007
WHQL Driver.

I already have BIOS Power Management setup for S3. I don't see any setting
for "Video Restore". Here is the link to the Award Bios version that I am
using [http://www.soyousa.com/downloads/filedesc.php?id=2335]. Sorry to hear
others are having problems as well. Hibernation also worked like a charm for
me in XP SP2. Thank you!

the results are the same unfortunately.

Hey guys found another bug. Test and see if the same thing happens to you.
If I go to "Control Panel", "Hardware and Sound", "Device Manager", "Display
adapters", "NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GS", I get a flashing ? and X at the upper
right hand corner when I leave the mouse pointer over the ? or X. Try it and
let me know if you see the same thing!

There are several possibilities here. First of I assume you have an NVIDIA
AGP based videocard is that correct? I would like to know what model and
make of motherboard you have. It sounds like a driver issue. Make sure you
have the latest NVIDIA drivers installed from the NVIDIA website and also
check the motherboard manufacturer's website to see if there are any Vista
related drivers you need to install.

I updated my MB's bios to the new Vista WHQL compatible version and
the results are the same unfortunately.

Update.

nVidia released new drivers for the 8800GTX (what I've got) on Feb 13,
version 100.64 and this resolved my hibernation and sleep issues.

I just installed a nvidia 8800 gts card and the latest drivers and now I have
the same problem. Sleep recovery worked fine with my old nvidia 6800 gt card.
Maybe Nvidia tech support has an answer.

I'm guessing that nvidia will be generating fairly frequent driver
updates for a while as they try to figure out the innards of Vista and
how best to connect to those pieces (some of which might have changed a
bit between RC1 and RC2 and RTM plus other ongoing changes as a
function of Vista updates.

I just installed the latest 100.65 drivers and no luck. Same thing happens.
How do I go about reporting this to Nvidia? I guess 8800 owners are not the
only ones having problems as I am using an AGP 7800 GS.

I too have an NVidia 8800gts card from EVGA and have the same problem. My
Motherboard is an EVGA 680i SLI. Have checked everything Bios settings etc..
I have contacted EVGA and they will try and reproduce the problem there.
Hopefully they will come up with an answer. For now I have disable the sleep
mode and use the button to shutdown my PC.

Anyone tried the beta 101.41 nvidia drivers? In the release notes they claim
the issue has been resolved, but I'm still getting the exact same problem.
Maybe my motherboard is too old or something and is not compatible with Vista
sleep function? Please comment if anyone has tried the beta drivers and if
you have found success. Thank you!
