RE: Shutdown / SLeep problem
I am having a strange thing occur with my Sony VAIO VGN-A290 using Vista
Ultimate Retail Upgrade.
Last night after installing the app, I turned on disk defragmenter and
walked away. Since Vista puts the computer to sleep after an hour I didn't
When I remembered this morning, I started it back up, and then clicked start
My computer stayed at teh "shutting down screen" for over 30 minutes (no
disk activity no nothing). I ended up shutting it off by holding the power
button after this 30 minutes passed.
I was able to start it up and shut it down fine there after.
I'm thinking about disabling alot of the power saving modes, I think there
is a conflict with the sleep/hibernate and the shut-down process. I don't
know the root cause yet but wondering if anyone else has experienced it.
