[Update 2007-10-18: Check out my blog post on two new Windows updates that solved this problem for me]
Just when I thought that I had tackled my hibernate problems in Windows Vista, I encounter serious problems with the sleep option.
When my computer goes to sleep it crashes and reboots. When my computer was idle this happened every hour, because the Balanced power plan puts the computer to sleep after one hour of inactivity. So I changed my power plan to High Performance so the computer never goes to sleep automatically ;(
Yesterday I reinstalled Windows Vista, mainly to rearrange my hard disks, but the problem remains. Albeit without a reboot after the crash.
There are many others that encounter crashes as well according to the post Windows Vista's Hideous Wakeup Support.
My hardware configuration is:
Dell Dimension 8300 with Pentium 4 3.0 GHz, 1 GB RAM, ATI Radeon 9800 PRO, Soundblaster Audigy 2 and Hauppauge WinTV PVR PCI II.
Windows Vista has a new reliability monitor that recorded the crash last night:
Does anyone else, with or without a similar hardware configuration, experience such problems?
