Windows 7 sleep issue!

By badchiefy ·
Hello everyone, I built my own PC a few years back and have been having issues with the sleep ever since. It will go into sleep just fine, but the issue is when I try to bring it out of sleep. The fans and everything will start up, but the monitors don't respond and keyboard/mouse don't get power(although I used the keyboard to bring it out of sleep). The PC will also sound like it's restarting several times while trying to come out of sleep. At one time I left the computer on for about an hour or two to see if it would come out of sleep and it eventually did if I remember correctly. Any suggestions on what could be causing the issue would be great!

My hardware:
Motherboard - Sabertooth P67
CPU - Intel 2600k
GFX - Radeon 7970
Power - Corsair AX1200
RAM - Corsair Vengence 1600MHz 4x4GB

Normally this is a Driver issue

So update your drivers and see if that cures the problem.

Occasionally Windows can have a problem with a installed Program and not come out of Sleep Mode and if that's what happening here it's best to disable Sleep Mode.

Try turning sleep mode off in windows, reboot your pc.
Check the sleep file has been removed (Hiberfil.sys - located on your system drive, unless you changed this)
Re-enable sleep mode

It sounds silly but this actually sorted the same problem out for me.
