About a year ago I build a home brew dektop PC. I am running Windows 7 Professional, I7 processor, Asus motherboard, 6gb ram.

Occasionally, in the past when the the PC would sleep it would not wake up when I pressed the keyboard and had to be restarted instead. Over the last week the problem has occured more frequently. Today it happened every time the PC went to sleep and was not woken up within a few minutes. I have never made any adjustments to my power setting in Windows or the BIOS. I am using a balanced power scheme.

I get the following error message from Windows upon reboot:

Windows has recovered from an undexpected shutdown.

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.48
Locale ID: 1033

Is this a Windows 7 issue? Is it a hardware issue? Any ideas how I can correct this error?

I haven't heard of this before. Have you looked up your power settings and if so, have they been changed or edited differently?

No changes to the system at all, have used a balanced power setting throughout. I am going to try and update the BIOS to see what happens, I have not updated it since I built the system in 12/09.

Hi,

I also built my own computer with i7, ASUS MOBO and 12GB RAM...since I built it everything has worked fine...now every time I put it to "Sleep" it will shutdown unexpectedly. When I push the power button again it will start rebooting and then shows the screen where it asks you if you want to Start Windows normally. I'm running Windows 7 Pro. Everything is updated. Any suggestions?

I've been experiencing the exact same thing for a couple weeks and can not find a solution. I've updated bios and changed power settings, but nothing helps!
