View Full Version : Windows 8.1 reboots instead of just waking up

03-25-2015, 11:28 AM

Whenever I close my lid or press the Fn + F1 combination, the laptop goes to sleep. On waking up, the laptop reboots instead of just resume.

In the event viewer I can see a kernel-power critical error with event ID 41.

Steps done so far:
- Refreshed windows installation - no effect, same simptoms
- Used Asus Backtracker to restore everything to factory defaults - no effect, same simptoms

It used to work fine until a few days ago. No hardware or software changes were made.

Any thoughts?

Symptoms such as that are usually related to video drivers issues. Are you using the latest drivers from Nvidia? If so, try going to the previous version.

I ended up formatting the SSD and installing a fresh windows 8.1 retail version (without any ASUS software), installed the video driver from ASUS and I still have the same issue.

I opened a case through ASUS VIP and they called me to the local service center....
