Wongmo,

Have you installed all drivers required for your Sony?

Dear Jessica,

When I had Vista OS, the computer stopped running when I closed the top and then when opened, I could just hit any key and it would 'wake up"...

I just installed Windows 7 and now that function doesn't work, when I close the top and open it again, I have to press the start button for it to boot up...

When you don't have your adapter attached you can click on the battery in the right end corner where you can configure everything regarding sleep mode etc. If that doesn't work then I don't know.

Go to Control Panel-Power Options, and make your own power plan. You can choose which buttons do what, when you want it to sleep ect.

Sometimes this can be related to the BIOS revision / ACPI drivers or even chipset drivers -- did you install all appropriate drivers when you moved to Windows 7?

Hello,

I've kind of got the same problem. I just finished a new build, my build specs are:
Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard
Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz processor
SAPPHIRE 100283-3L Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 video card
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (4 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 memory
Highpoint RocketRAID 620 PCI-e card
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system

The problem is, when I put the computer to sleep, it won't come out of it. After some fiddling, I got the following message:
"computer can't come out of hibernation, status 0xC0000411 a fatal error processing restoration date File:\hiberfil.sys "

Now, I'm not a computer wiz like many on this board are and I do not know how to fix this problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

symbiotic

Searching and reading; fiddling and more fiddling and finally found what I needed. Went into command prompt and typed: powercfg.exe/hibernate off, and pressed ENTER. Then exited command prompt mode. HAPPY :pt1cable:  HAPPY!

This should end this string.

How on earth would I know the answer to that?

Maybe Jessica or someone could send me the link to the drivers she thinks I may need.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit on a Sony Vaio

It doesn't have a "sleep" power option after installing this OS, so I can't just close the lid and then press any button to wake it up again

I just did the above and got the message"you do not have permission to enable or disable hibernate prompt"

So I'm back at square one. I don't have a 'sleep' power setting.

If there's no sleep mode option after I installed Windows 7, how do I get it back?

Same problem with me except it's happening on my Sony Vaio VPCEA46FM currently running Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. Sony needs to release an update for Windows 7/8/8.1 that fixes the problem with sleeping the VAIO.
