Sleep mode now inactive

HP Recommended
Pavilion Elite 595
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi Folks, i am sorry to ask what might for some of you seem a trivial question, but i have recently had to re-install Windows 7 pro, with the help of Microsoft, who were pretty good, but i am now left  without the choice of 'SLEEP mode' . i have tried amending Power Options without any change. I operate a desktop so am led to believe that  i can aslo have 'sleep hibernate' but when setting power Options both Sleep and Hibernate are greyed out.

Would some kind person please guide me thru this maize to a suitable outcome.

Regards from David in Guildford

Hi dsc8w

 

This issue is usually caused on a clean operating system install because you need to install current drivers such as:

 

Intel MEI

Graphics

Chipset

SATA

Network

Audio

Wifi

Bluetooth

 

Also all Windows updates need to be installed.

Hi

 

You are welcome.

 

Kudos for doing the work that needs to be done.

 

I have no idea what is causing this?? The PC should work correctly having current updates and drivers.

Hi dsc8w

 

Anything is possible.

 

I have never had to do registry mods to get sleep/hibernate working.

 

Have seen greyed out options in Power Management to configure sleep but this was caused by, mostly, not having the current Nvidia, AMD, or Intel graphics driver installed.

 

Did you check Device Manager power management settings for devices which could prevent sleep/hibernate?

 

Grzy
