Vista Sleep Issues
I've been having some problems with Vista going to not fully going to sleep
and the only way to get it back is to power down and restart. Some times it
works fine and others it hangs. How can I tell what program/drivers are
still active when the computer is going to sleep? IM guessing its a driver
not fully shutting down.

Thanks,
Mike

Re: Vista Sleep Issues
Have you tried the latest beta drivers? I had this problem with my
8800GTX and the new 101.41 beta drivers fixed the sleep/hibernation
problems

Re: Vista Sleep Issues
Yes, I installed them yesterday.

The thing is, sometimes my computer goes to sleep fine and at other times
not so well. Is there a log that I can I look at to see how the computer
shuts down drivers to compare a good sleep initiation to a bad one?

Here's a link to a blog with some good tips for troubleshooting
sleep/resume.

Re: Vista Sleep Issues
I looked into the Event viewer and found no entries regarding sleep, only
shutdown. Is there another log that contains the sleep procedure info?

Re: Vista Sleep Issues
The log to look in is accessed in the Event Viewer. It's listed in the blog
I linked to. You have to drill down a long ways to find it.

Re: Vista Sleep Issues
Sorry, my last message should have stated that I did look into that section
in the Event Viewer and found no entries regarding sleep, only shutdown. Is
there another log within the Event Viewer that contains the sleep procedure
info as I went through most of the sub-sections and found nothing?

Re: Vista Sleep Issues
The fact is that there are serious problems with sleep mode. I finally
diabled it and all my troubles went away - no more freezing, no more
rebooting when waking up. Microsoft really needs to patch this up.
