Specs: Windows 7Ultimate (64 bits), Intel Core i3-2350M (2.3GHz) / Kingston 2x2gb DDR3
Have a Toshiba C655 laptop, I've formatted the HDD many times and install the same drivers once and once and always without problems, but now my laptop does'nt auto suspend anymore, what can be?

I formatted the drive one more time and nothing, When I close the lid the laptop suspends normally,,, restart normally, but not after 10 minutes as I like to autosleep.

Any ideas?

Note: I have hyberfil disabled cause I dont want hibernation in my system, only suspend, but this is not the reason because I enable it again and nothing happens as usual.

Also the "latest drivers for your laptop" seems to be futile since I use the same old original drivers came in the laptop CD and those drivers worked fine with suspension before.

Thanks.

Not sure why you would ever need to "formatted the HDD many times" but here is my suggestion. Go to power options and customize and set the hard drive to NEVER power down. This will prevent some problems with suspend many times... Worth trying at least. When the computer is in sleep mode it will be powered down anyway so there will be very little difference to you and it can easily be reversed. At the very least the hard drive should not power down before the sleep kicks in time wise (I know that the hard drive is not written to in true sleep as it is in hybrid sleep and hibernate, but it still may help).
Also try removing the memory sticks and cleaning the contacts with a soft pencil eraser and popping them in and out 5 or 6 times to also burnish those contacts as well. Since sleep/suspend holds the active state in RAM, this might also help if there is any minute oxidation on the contacts

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Are you accepting drivers from Windows Update?

In addition to Fingers suggestion about the HD, I suggest you disable suspending USB.

I also wonder why you find it necessary to format many times.

If you set anything like auto-suspend in Windows' Power Options, make sure UEFI or BIOS does not have any of its similar power options enabled; either UEFI/BIOS or Windows, not both. And, while you're at it, make sure Wakeup On Lan and other auto-powerons are off, 'cause you don't want laptop accidentally waking up and doing things while in the laptop in the briefcase or backpack or in the cargo hold.

lol

I just format my laptop once a year, just to have a clean system, and for fun xD

I found the problem: I just uninstalled Photoshop CS3 and my autosuspend feature is back.

Dont know why but now its solved.

Thanks anyway!!
