    g74sx-bbk7 locking up on wake up

    Does anyone else have the problem where after you wake your laptop up from hibernation it tends to lock up? I have to hard restart it and I am wondering if this is a software or hardware issue.

    I've had that problem in the past. Even though it has undergone improvements, I try to avoid sleep and hibernation now. I think your problem is definitely software and depends on how a specific application works with hibernation. I also think the more apps you have open, the greater the chance of a failure to resume from sleep or hibernation. Applications and drivers can also leak memory, not returning memory resources they have used when they complete operations or are shut down. I think the longer your system uptime, the greater chance of failure to resume from hibernation.

    That used to happen on my daughter's desktop from having Skype running when it went to sleep. In fact it happened on two desktops. Both ran Win7 and both crashed on waking up because of Skype

    The BIOS in this laptop is fairly bereft of settings. (probably a GOOD thing )
