Hi All,

 

After updating to new AMD Graphic driver, my PC is unable to wake up after sleep. Prior to this, my PC works perfectly. FYI, my power option plan is to put my computer to sleep after 20mins.

Win 7 seems to work because i can still hear 'ting' bell sound. Checked monitor, is shows no signal.  After upgrading to new driver, every time i want to use the PC after sleep state, i have to hard reset my PC.

Do you guys know how to overcome my problem?

 

thanks

Win7 seems to work and you hard reset instead of pressing the power button on the keyboard or PC case and letting it shut down... Clever.

 

Overcome: Try a clean install first. Posting specs wouldn't hurt either. The sticky is there for a reason, not to be ignored.

I have the same problem (Windows 8 x64) with my 7950. Looking through the forums it appears somewhat common.

 

I have found a "work around".  Instead of the normal sleep mode windows uses as the default, I switched to hibernation mode.  You will need to use the advanced power settings in the control pannel to have your PC hibernate rather than sleep.  (Google/Bing/etc "windows hibernate" for instructions).   When windows hibernates it saves everything to disk and actually shuts off the power, which seems to eliminate the wake up issue.  On the down side, it does take somewhat longer to "wake up".

 

Good Luck!

I have the same problem, as do many other users. The only solution is to change your PC power options. Either never sleep, or yes, hibernation mode.
