Hello, this is my issue, my computer in sleep wont wake up.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bits
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-970A-D3
Processor AMD FX 8 cores
Sapphire Radeon HD 6790 1GB GDDR5
8GB Corsair Ram
3TB HDD Western Digital
1000W power supply Ezcool

I already updated my BIOS to the lastest version and that wont work. I cant turn the computer back on if i use the power button, mouse, mouse clicking or keyboard after it goes into sleep mode.

Another detail is my computer in sleep mode can be turn on if i power off my UPS for 10 secs then i can turn on the computer from the power button and windows will resume normally but i have turn off everything each time if i do this method.

thx for the help.

i'm not 100% sure... but i think in the bios is a "wake from sleep" menu in the power features... and if nothing is selected, nothing will wake the system... turn on the keyboard as something that will wake you from sleep, and see if that fixes the issue

Try this: After about a week the Microsoft Hotfix stopped working and all the usual shutdown, sleep, boot issues returned. After a lot of messing around I tried removing my graphics card (Asus GTX660 Ti) With the card removed the problems went away, put the card back in the problems returned. Soooooo to cut a long story short, I put the Graphics Card Back in and set my Windows sound scheme to 'NO SOUNDS', the pc now shuts down, sleeps, awakens no problems. My theory is the PC shuts down and or goes into sleep mode before the Graphics card gets a chance to 'power off' leaving it in a Limbo state. It's been over a week now and the PC is still fine.

I'm shocked, but this actually works!!! I was going to buy a new graphics card.

Is there a way how to solve this without disabling the sounds? Because sometimes they come handy.

I too have the same problem, but I have windows 7 professional 64 bit. I also have a wireless keyboard and mouse. I just hooked up a different keyboard and mouse and it doesn't seem to do it now, but it has only been a day. What kind of keyboard and mouse do you have?

Mine went into sleep mode and locked up less than two days after I had it. The next day it went into sleep mode and it NEVER came out of it. No video, no hard drive activity, not even a post. Dead. It was like the sleep mode killed the motherboard.
