    I'm so sorry to inform that my solution to solve the waking up issue doesn't work in all cases. I thought waking up after a clean boot was safe (25 waking up operations in the last 3 days, all correct!), but it isn't. After a clean boot, I started Steam and asked it to download some large game (10 Gb) into the SSD. After 5 Gb or so, when the right side of the case was already warm (yes, the right side gets warm even without any sound, just by downloading files), I put the laptop into sleep mode. 30 minutes later, when the right side of the case was cold again, I pressed the wake up button... and it failed. Two attempts. First time I could write my password but then I was stuck in the desktop. Second time I just got the infamous black screen.

    Maybe reducing the number of running programs helps indeed, but it definitely sounds like a hardware issue.

    Ok, I've installed the lastest Intel drivers for the Chipset, the Management Engine, and the Rapid Storage Technology from http://www.station-drivers.com/index.php?lang=en. Then, I've changed the BIOS from Raid to AHCI, following the steps given by hexaae in https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...l=1#post588732 (I also experienced that halved transfer speed problem after waking up from sleep). Then I've repeated twice the experiment I mentioned in my previous post, and it's working: resuming after suspension isn't failing. I don't want to be overoptimistic (again!), but this could be the solution.

    If I don't get back to this thread with bad news, then it means it kept working.

    I hope it goes well for you bud. Sorry for being late on the reply. I have been busy with school work and a 50 hour work week let me know how yours goes. So far I have had no issues since OP. Like i said mine has been completely random and I haven't nailed down an event that would trigger it yet.

    Cheers

    Edit: I just wanted it to be known to the community that I was having an error. Be it hardware or software related. I was hoping it to be isolated. I will stay in touch.

    Good to know you are not experiencing the problem again.

    Regarding my problem, right after doing that change, my next three reboots took longer than usual: before the ROG logo, I had 15-45 seconds of black screen and next everything worked. Mysteriously, something changed afterwards, as now rebooting is fast again (less than 10 seconds), and sleeping/resuming is working well too. Maybe some Windows update fixed something in the meantime? Maybe it was because I increased the amount of free space in drive C: from 25Gb to 50Gb (the only change I did that I can recall)?

    The more I observe rebooting, sleeping and resuming in motion, the less I understand them. At least, now everything is working well, I hope it'll last!

    When this happens to my G752VY, I just hit Fn+F7 twice to disable/reenable the screen. Works faster than shutting down and turning it back on.

    When you use AHCI instead of RAID mode , you're effectively disabling iRST, so the driver update for it did nothing. But who knows ...
    Personally , I have that uninstalled

    You are right, iRST can be used only with RAID. So this part of the configuration change was pointless, I guess.
