Possible fix for Hibernation problems
Posted 29 March 2012 - 02:24 PM
This might already be common knowledge here (I only learnt about it from here http://ubuntuforums....d.php?t=1341694 ) but thought I'd share it in the hope that it can save someone else spending weeks trying to diagnose Sleep / Hibernate problems like I did!

If so. I havent run into that problem. Good to know.

On Seven Forums they told me that the partition doesn't have to be Active when grub4dos isn't "imposed" on the HD and "We see enough irreparable Windows due to GRUB being on the same HD that it's viewed by many here as an infection"

What was the ptn arrangement and what was on each partition?

On the Win7 x86 system, the 1st partition is Win 7 x86 and the 2nd Win7 x64. I'm running from the 1st partition and the second partition was marked as Active (and Hidden). There's also a couple of Secondary partitions.

Then later I found it wasn't going to Sleep any more. I checked Powercfg -requests which only showed Filesystemsrvnet which I've already made a requestoverride for with srvnet SYSTEM, I've also used the registry patch to show the "Allow Sleep with Remote Opens" in Power Options and that's set to On. I also tried disabling Hybrid Sleep and then Hibernate with powercfg -h off and still it wouldn't sleep, so I gave up and shut it down manually. I wish Microsoft would provide an easy way of monitoring standby to see what's preventing it, rather than expecting us to look in a hundred different places for possible causes

Pattern Match was enabled though (as it is on my Win7 x64 system, where it doesn't seem to be causing any problems) so I disabled it and re-enabled Hibernate and Hybrid Sleep and checked it was still working. I'll keep an eye on it and see if it behaves itself now with Pattern Match disabled. Thanks for the tip.

Checking shows everything to be the same as it was in post #7, except I've got Hibernate enabled now (as it has been for a week without causing any problems).
