Here's my story

I have Dell Inspiron 17 3737

I've tried lots of drivers from DELL and direct from AMD (Mobility Catalyst 13.9 - 13.12) but still  same effect, if laptop goes to sleep or hibernate it will not wake up again

Usually I see black screen, but since Monday laptop restart himself when trying to wake up

I'm using Windows 8.1 64 bit.

Before installation of new drivers  I do full driver cleanup using Display Driver Uninstaller.

At the moment I using Mobility catalyst 13.12/ Game performance is grate but sleep/hibernate problem exists

Any ideas? By the way Dell latest drivers is out of date 13.151.0.0

Is 8.1 the OS that the laptop came with...or did you 'upgrade' it?

You should report this to AMD using the issue report form:
