|Ok, I have been diagnosing this problem for a |
long time now, and still have not found a
Here's the deal. With XP, SP1, and SP2, all
sleep states are fine. With SP3, resuming
from sleep will bring the computer back up,
but the system process will sit there eating
99% of the CPU and NEVER release any usage.
So clicking on say the Start menu, it'll take
approx. 34 seconds to load, and you'll see it
draw it as if the computer was 33MHz or
something. It will not ever go back to a
fully up state.
This is from a fresh install, meaning, HD
zeroed out, then formatted as NTFS (not
quick). Tried with and without the drivers
for what Windows didn't include already.
The only power management feature that works
still is Hibernation. Now while it only
takes slightly longer, I would like the
proper S3 sleep state running, so opening and
closing the screen is seamless with no lag
and minimal power.
Are there any fixes for this? I have even
talked with the other techs at work and have
deemed it a Microsoft bug.
