Steerpike Posted October 17, 2022 Share Posted October 17, 2022 I've experienced at least 3 situations now where the laptop will go to sleep, and then be impossible (or difficult) to 'wake' or startup. Basically, the laptop seems 'dead' - pressing power has no effect. A few days ago, I did a long, long press on power (30 seconds?) and finally got it to startup, and it seemed to be in some kind of 'Out Of Box' startup mode, asking for preferences, but after just a few such questions, things seemed to be back to normal - my files and apps where there. Today I experienced a similar thing, and paid more attention. This time, I did several long-presses on power (but only about 10 seconds), and a couple of lid close/opens. Somewhat randomly, the second lid close/open triggered a startup situation (Samsung logo, etc). Previous context lost (ie, a clean startup, not from standby/hibernate). This is a pretty plain-vanilla windows 11 setup; the only thing I've done is enabled hibernate so I can truly put the guy to 'sleep' for long periods without using battery. Even though I've enabled and use hibernate from time to time, I'm pretty sure these issues have all arisen from letting the laptop enter 'modern standby'. So far, I don't have enough info to really post much of interest, but I wanted to get a thread going in case others have experienced this. The event viewer is not very forthcoming; it shows that the 'previous shutdown was unexpected', but not much else. Edit To Add: Had another event this evening. Starting to see a pattern. Typically, since I bought the laptop, I have left it alone in regards to any 'power' actions, just leaving it with the lid open and letting it sleep / wake as it feels necessary, and there haven't been any issues. But this past week, I'm on vacation and have been constantly closing the lid to 'put the laptop away' physically. This evening, I closed the lid around 6:30pm, and opened the lid at 7:50pm, but it would not start. Had to do a 30+ second long press on power, at which point it had clearly done a 'clean start' (not wake). Event log shows 'previous shutdown not expected' or similar. I then closed the lid at 8:03pm, re-opened at 9:10pm, and this time things were 'as expected' (sort of) - screen was already lit, and ready for my PIN. Event log shows 'entering modern standby'/reason: Lid, and 'exiting modern standby'/reason: lid. I'm going to intentionally do some lid-closures instead of hibernating to see if I can see a pattern.
