Hi All,

I had a problem in Windows 7 that I just got, upgraded to windows 8 and I am having the same problem.

Basically when I put the computer to sleep I can wake it from sleep if I wake it within the hour. If I try to wake it longer than that it just hangs on wake up with a black screen.

I thought it may be an issue with hibernation, so I checked and hibernation is disabled. Odd enough when I try to enable hibernation through command line, my computer crashes and I get a BSOD.

Now in windows 8 when i try to restart sometimes in windows 8 i get a driver power state failure screen.

I'm thinking it may have something to do with my power drivers or configuration.

My computer is a HP M9517C desktop.

I have uploaded the power state failure MINDUMP.

Please help

You have not set your APCI option located in the bios first.
Once you find that option in the bios, make sure S3 str or s4 std is selected.
then save the settings in the bios.
When you tell the computer to sleep or hibernate it uses these modes if set right.
STR means Suspend To Ram.
STD means Suspend To Disk.
If the option is not set then the computer will crash upon a wake up call.

-The bugcheck is most likely caused by a incorrect response in a device driver.

-You have some old drivers on your system (2006), I dumped the driver list from your minidump.

-I would google for the driver names and update them when I figured out what they went to.
- Or remove them if I did not currently need them.
- I included the Realtek driver RTKVHD64.sys because a lot of people are having issues with various realtek drivers (I don't know which ones).

-The first few drivers did not have timestamps so who knows if they are stale or not.

secdrv.sys Macrovision security driver used to prevent piracy of some PC games. It caused a lot of problems in its day. FYI
TSDDD.dll is someFramebuffer Display Driver
adfs.sys is adobe file system driver
atmfd.dll I think is also an adobe file

Hmm seems to not have fixed the computer not being able to wake up from a lengthy sleep.

Any idea what that could be from?

not waking up from a "long" sleep some times can be caused by a "EU" setting in the BIOS. I requirement from the European union to power down USB ports on extended sleep to save extra power on computers.. If you have a USB wireless keyboard you can not wake the computer after the USB port was powered down. (the old PS/2 keyboard might work depending on your BIOS setting).

I think I may have the solution Junoty.

I had a similar problem..

Can you check what is the state of "LEGACY BIOS" SETTING in your BIOS setup?

If it is enabled, please disable it!

Let me know if that solved the problem !
