First let me say that my computer had been working fine with the ability to
Sleep and then resume from Sleep by pressing the Power button.
Now to the current time. A day or so ago, I came back from Sleep and found
my mouse had locked up. I could do nothing but hit the computer's reset
switch. After that, I could not boot up at all. To make a long story short,
the culprit seems to be a bad stick of ram added recently. I pulled the ram
and things seem to be back to normal - almost.
Now when I put the computer into Sleep mode, the Power button just turns on
the machine and then nothing. I need to then hit the computer's Reset button
to resume and then it seems to take longer than it used to. When it comes
up, I am at the same point as when I went to sleep, however. Obviously the
hiberfil.sys file is being created and used correctly.
My question is this: does anyone out there know why I would need to do a
Power On and Reset now when Power On used to do the trick?
Thanks for any guidance.
