View Full Version : G751JY - Sleep Issues (I have read every thread and tried every fix)

Ended up following the UEFI Windows 10 Clean Install thread and got the system running well...I thought. The reason that I decided to clean install was because of these sleep issues.
I have tried hibernate on/off, hybrid sleep on/off, reflashing BIOS 211 over itself again, downgrading to 209 and flashing it over itself, etc,etc,etc.

Here is the issue as it stands now:

Sleep works fine after a reboot, it times out at the set time and sleeps and when I go to wake it up, it is instant! perfecto!

after the first sleep/wake cycle after a reboot, the system will not automatically sleep anymore. However, I was also suffering from the 'system unattended timeout' issue where my system would sleep after 2 min. After digging around I found that solution and changed the setting in advanced power options.
But, it is only that sleep mode that will consistently works, until a reboot is performed, then I get the one-time normal sleep.

Here is the secondary issue: The time it takes for my computer's display to show after being woken seems to get longer as my computer runs without being rebooted.
Waking is instant for the first while, but then if I leave it overnight, then go to work, then come home and wake it, it takes anywhere from 45s to over a minute and a half. While it is waking up at this time, the screen is black, keyboard is lit up and the hdd activity light is working away (I read another thread regarding this being caused by intel wifi drivers or something and the wireless WOL feature - I have tried these solutions and they do not work).

Sleep is driving me nuts! and cannot find THE solution that fixes this. I can live with only the system unattended timeout sleep working, as it seems to do the same job, but not having instant wake is killing me.

HELP.


Edit: Maybe I am being too picky? Shouldn't the system wake from sleep instantly all the time? I have confirmed that it is not going into or coming out of hibernate and I even when into the power management options of the Nvidia Control Panel to maximize performance as well as trying some AMD driver fix about disabling ULPS - no dice.

Hi there brownstein and welcome to ROG forums.

After reading your post I can suggest the following:
1. know your current sleep states that windows can operate:
Open CMD with admin prevleges and run: powercfg /a
Make sure that "Hybrid Sleep", "Hibernate" and "Fast startup" have either a "has not been enabled" state or " is not available" etc...
These feature can cause sleep-wake issues on win8.1/10 as you might already know.

2. try to diagnose the issue deeper:
* open the window's event viewer and look for any odd errors
* Open CMD with admin prevleges and run: powercfg -ENERGY
This should create a HTML report ( when it finish it let you know where it is ) that you can query for any error/odd behavior.
If you can't seems to understand it, you can upload it here in the forum so we might look into it as well.

3. Have you install Asus's official ATK driver ?

4. (The following advise might have slight chance of connection)
Are you using Nvidia's drivers version 364 or above ?
if so, Can you please try to completely uninstall it using "Add or remove" at first, then use DDU to remove any leftovers (http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html).
Then download any previous version that preceded 364, during installation choose "clean install", customize-> and choose ONLY the graphics, audio and physix components.
* about that " AMD driver fix about disabling ULPS" you mentioned - as your laptop got ONLY NVIDIA GPU, remove and restore whatever changes (like registry) you might have made, as clearly it DOES NOT APPLY TO G751JY.

5. check for any HW malfunction.
Especially pay attention for any drive with "reallocation event count" with threshold more then 0.
you can check it with CrystalDiskInfo (http://crystalmark.info/software/CrystalDiskInfo/index-e.html)and many other apps.

6. Have you installed any special scripts like "Rog Spark" ?
Have you installed and use any RamDisk (http://memory.dataram.com/products-and-services/software/ramdisk)apps ?
if so, REMOVE THEM, as you have to have "Stable"/"ordinary" windows as much as possible in order to diagnose the root cause of the sleep issue.

lets start from here and see where it leads you.

I followed your instructions and rolled back Nvidia to 362.00. Now, it will not even enter normal sleep mode automatically (I set the timer to 1 min). One thing to note that has been happening all along is that I can see the activity circle symbol on the mouse cursor right at the time that my computer is supposed to enter sleep mode but then it disappears and nothing happens.

Edit: hmm, unattended sleep timeout stopped working it seems as well.

Edit 2: Nevermind, I let it timeout again and it did work but the screen stayed black for almost 2 min when I woke it! Maddening! When I manually initiated sleep prior to letting it timeout, it woke instantly.

Edit 3: One more time and it took 1 minute to wake this time, I will link a video in a couple minutes.

Edit 4: It seems very random how long it takes to wake up, anywhere from 10s to almost 2 minutes. WTF?

I am on to something here; it seems that Windows is interpreting waking my computer up with the mouse as a remote wake and thus only following the rules for unattended system timeout, regardless of me using the mouse and keyboard after it wakes up. I followed some ideas in this thread (http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-performance/windows-8-pro-goes-to-sleep-after-60-seconds-of/b1a32492-f9cc-4db9-ad70-987af074fa08?auth=1) and it seems that if I wake the system with the power button, it follows my normal sleep rules.

This is not ideal for me as I normally keep the laptop closed and use an external monitor.

brownstein
04-05-2016, 02:15 PM
Eureka!

I have managed to fix the normal sleep (I think).

Originally, I was victim to the 120s sleep bug, as the unattended system timeout is defaulted to 2 min. So, I followed the procedure here (http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/246364-power-options-add-system-unattended-sleep-timeout.html)in order to change the settings.

I had to reverse the procedure (using the uninstall file from the same link), then I picked the high performance power profile, reset it to defaults, changed my sleep timeout to 1 min and then restarted the computer.

It did its normal first sleep after 1 minute of activity, as the first one always worked, and I was able to get it to timeout after 1 minute 4 more times afterwards. Success!

Now, I have yet to see if my other problem will return as it seemed to present itself after the system had been up for some time (overnight sometimes), but I have a theory:

If I simply click the mouse, without moving it, to wake the computer, the screen stays black - until I move the mouse. My theory is that sometimes, if the timing is just right maybe, the mouse wakes the computer but then gets locked out of functioning before it is able to wake the display, therfore any movements that were made with the mouse get delayed for a time until the mouse becomes unlocked and wakes the screen.

This could explain why the black screen seems to have a variable time associated with it, but I am not sure what would lock the mouse out. Hopefully it just doesn't happen this time.

Glad to see that you manage to find the root cause of the issue... WELL DONE !

about the mouse... isn't it the mouse you got when you bought the G751 ?
if so, I know there are official drivers from ASUS for it - may be it can solve the mouse "lock" you mentioned.

another think that worth exploring is in the device manger, under USB, search for the mouse -> properties -> look for the "wake from sleep" options, usually in the last tab.... make sure it is enable.
Also search for the reset of the USB devices ( root hub, controller etc.. NOT other external devices) make sure their "wake from sleep" feature ( if they got one ) is enabled as well.

brownstein
04-05-2016, 04:34 PM
My G751 did not come with a mouse, I am using a G502. I will definitely explore those options if the delay starts again!

sorry to interrupt this thread but im having some sleep issues as well.
all power plans are set to 'never' yet every 15 min my pc sleeps if i dont touch the mouse, very annoying while making music.

anybody knows if this could be motherboard/bios related?

This is a summary of what's happening.

1) Clean boot, everything works great. Sleep settings work as intended.

2) Put the computer to sleep manually or automatically.

3) Wakes computer with USB keyboard or mouse, wired or wireless, the computer goes into "system unattended sleep timeout" mode.

4) Your computer will now go to sleep every 2 minutes of inactivity unless you adjust the system unattended sleep timeout from 2 minutes to whatever minutes you wanted. Registry editing required. Directions somewhere in this forum.

5) If you use the power button to wake the computer, the computer will not go into system unattended sleep timeout mode and will work as originally intended.

6) The current fix has flaws. When waken in system unattended sleep timeout mode, the computer thinks it is idle and breaks a few programs. The perceived idling will start idle maintenance tasks like disk optimization, indexing, and virus scanning.

7) Easy way to test this is by installing msi afterburner and use the hardware monitor. When working as intended, the hardware monitor will monitor. If awakened in system unattended sleep timeout mode, the monitoring will freeze in place. If waken with power button, the hardware monitor will continue monitoring and is not in system unattended sleep timeout mode.

8) The real problem is the USB controller.
With the powercfg -lastwake command, this is what it shows-

Instance Path: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8CB1&SUBSYS_85341043&REV_00\3&11583659&0&A0
Friendly Name: Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.0 (Microsoft)
Description: USB xHCI Compliant Host Controller
Manufacturer: Generic USB xHCI Host Controller

9) That controller is the real source of the problem. Waking from any usb device will result in system unattended sleep timeout mode. Windows 10 for some reason thinks an usb wake is an unattended wake on lan event. Should be registering as user activity instead.

10) How to fix? We will probably need microsoft to fix the usb issue or possibly get a new driver for the intel usb 3.0.

11)Never had this problem prior to the anniversary update. After upgrading to the anniversary update, this problem occurred and drove me nuts as it shuts off every 2 minutes. Did a clean install with latest windows media creation tool and the problem persists. With this post, I hope somebody more advanced will see this and comes up with a real solution.

12) There is a discrepancy with my theory, if I wake the computer with my xbox one controller with the wireless adapter, the computer wakes normally and every is functional. Afterburner monitor works and is monitoring and no 2 minutes sleeps.

13) Waking in unattended mode, you can use the xbox one controller to exit the mode by simply turning it on. My frozen hardware monitoring resumed it monitoring and the sleep timeout is working as intended. I believe the xbox is sending the computer an user activity signal and brings the system out of unattended mode instantly whereas usb keyboards and mice does not regardless of how many times you press the keys or move the mouse. Can also switch to another user and back and it will exit unattended mode.

11)Never had this problem prior to the anniversary update. After upgrading to the anniversary update, this problem occurred and drove me nuts as it shuts off every 2 minutes. Did a clean install with latest windows media creation tool and the problem persists. With this post, I hope somebody more advanced will see this and comes up with a real solution.

12) There is a discrepancy with my theory, if I wake the computer with my xbox one controller with the wireless adapter, the computer wakes normally and every is functional. Afterburner monitor works and is monitoring and no 2 minutes sleeps.

13) Waking in unattended mode, you can use the xbox one controller to exit the mode by simply turning it on. My frozen hardware monitoring resumed it monitoring and the sleep timeout is working as intended. I believe the xbox is sending the computer an user activity signal and brings the system out of unattended mode instantly whereas usb keyboards and mice does not regardless of how many times you press the keys or move the mouse. Can also switch to another user and back and it will exit unattended mode.

Any news on this situation? I am still living with this **** show - my laptop rarely sleeps now unless I force it. I have it hooked up to an external monitor so I always use the mouse/kybd to wake it.
