I have this Pavilion:
My keyboard had after 6 months a malfunction, so i requested a warranty repair .. it went okay (eg warranty applied and the keyboard got replaced) but they have also upped my bios and very poorly assembled a chassis, so the upper part doesn't line up tightly with bottom, well, it seems like some screws were left over after puting parts together, but the most painful is the bios:
note: the bioses on this notebook are all very poor .. the previous version had own issues not discussed in this article.
the new bios makes unable to put laptop in to s3 state (sleeping - in ram). It goes to sleep when you initiate it okay, but it wakes up after short time. If you are plugged on the ac cable the laptop remains running unless you have set there that it falls asleep after some period of non-activity, the same while running on battery and even much more often. Eg the waking up from s3 is much faster ..
i don't remember the previous version, what version of bios could I use, what should I do? this bios is the lastest one available at support page to this hardware and it's probably the crappiest one.
ps. i don't wat to create another warranty SR .. it bothers me to send my notebook anywhere again and again.
pps. i tested this behaviour under Linux and Windows .. both up to date and both running the hardware pretty fine. The behaviour is always same so it shouldn't be caused by OS .. also i've checked bios to foe example disable wake on lan and whatever and in this poor bios is not possible to change almost anything .. there's nothing corresponding.
thanks and regards, daniel

Go into the "Control Panel" and find "Power Options", check the settings in there to your preferences and see if that cures your problems.
I also went through all of the BIOS updates and what they're for and none of them have anything to do with sleep/hibernation settings. If there is something wrong, it's probably got nothing to do with the BIOS.
There is also a hidden power setting for "High Performance", you may want to try that. At any rate all of the settings have advanced user controls to set things as you want.

thanks for reply but my issue is not caused by the Operating System(s) settings, with whatever settings (or even with recommended defaults) the behaviour is as described above.
- if you put your ntb to s3 mode, it wakes up after some time (minutes and on ac hours).
- if you run on battery the waking up happening under default OEM up to date windows and under Linux is much faster. Eg the laptop goes up after few minutes (compared to run on ac where it happens after approx 2-3 hours).
