Blank Screen after Hibernate or Sleep?

Okay, the short answer, increase your virtual memory to more than the size of your physical memory.

Long version now. Recently, I had this problem with my PC that it wouldn’t wake up from hibernation or sleep mode properly. The PC itself would be on and churning, but the screen would switch to power save mode, staying blank. The only thing to do at that point would be to restart the computer.

Like the good netizen that I am, I trawled the Internet for a solution. But didn’t find any. Some suggested upgrading the BIOS, replacing the graphics card and so on. Then I saw this mentioned in a Linux group, saying that the size of the swap file should be more than the physical memory, and decided to try it on my Windows XP machine. And it solved the problem!

因此,唤醒后此空白屏幕问题的解决方案是将虚拟内存的大小设置为大于系统内存的大小。,,en,如果您需要更多信息,,en,这是怎么,,en,循序渐进的形式,,en,这些说明适用于Windows XP计算机,,en,右键点击,,en,我的电脑,,en,并击中,,en,属性。,,en,看一下RAM的大小,,en,然后点击,,en,高级,,en,标签,,en,点击,,en,设置,,en,下的按钮,,en,性能,,en,组框,,en,在里面,,en,性能选项,,en,出现的窗口,,en,选择,,en,虚拟内存,,en,底部附近的组框,,en,点击,,en,更改,,en,纽扣,,en,弹出的窗口,,en,设置,,en,自定义大小,,en,超出您的RAM大小,,en,您在步骤中看到的,,en,您可以在任何硬盘分区上进行设置,,en,但是如果您要按照所有这些说明进行操作,,en,你只有机会,,en,C,,en,我选择穿上,,en,中号,,en. If you need more information, here is how, in step-by-step form. These instructions apply to a Windows XP machine.

  1. Right-click on “My Computer” and hit “Properties.”
  2. Take a look at the RAM size, and click on the “Advanced” tab.
  3. Click on the “Setting” button under the “Performance” group box.
  4. In the “Performance Options” window that comes up, select the “Advanced” tab.
  5. In the “Virtual Memory” group box near the bottom, click on the “Change” button.
  6. In the “Virtual Memory” window that pops up, set the “Custom Size” to something more than your RAM size (that you saw in step 2). You can set it on any hard disk partition that you have, but if you are going through all these instructions, chances are you have only “C:”. In my case, I chose to put it on “M:”.

  1. I thought I had found a solution to my blank-screen-on-wake-up problem. Turns out that it was only a temporary solution. The problem came back with a vengeance and I cannot hibernate or use sleep mode any more. I am thinking of getting a new PC now.

  2. Hi Manoj,
    I had the “Blank Screen after Hibernate/Sleep” issue also and none of the online fixes worked. I remembered it started after recent Windows security updates so I uninstalled them and now hibernate/sleep seems to be working again.
    Hope this helps.
    Chere

  3. Update… sorry Manoj, thought I had it fixed but just discovered it’s still doing it. Sorry for the false hope.
    If you find a fix, please pass it on.

    1. Hi,

      Thanks for your comment.

      I did solve my problem, eventually. Only by buying a new PC! Can’t complainit is Dell Precision T3400, Quad Pentium, XP64, 8GB, 1TB of HDD. 🙂

  4. The ‘fixyou found relating to Linux is because it uses it’s swap partition to save the contents of RAM when it hibernates. Windoz has a page file for when it’s eaten all your RAM and a hiber file for when it hibernates. It’s more than likely a bug M$ introduced.

  5. 我遇到这个问题已经一年多了,并且尝试了所有在网络上发现的可能的修复,,en,包括微软补丁,,en,魔术发誓,上帝知道什么,,en,最终,,en,我偶然发现了解决方案,,en,可能并非一直如此,,en,但就我而言,,en,Windows XP,,en,SP3,,en,它成功了,,en,右键点击我的电脑,,en,转到硬件选项卡,,en,点击设备管理器,,en,进入通用串行总线控制器,,en,靠底部,,en,将其展开为列表,,en,这个清单应该乱七八糟,,en,那是我的情况,,en,带USB的东西,,en,通常是一些USB设备安装不当的遗留物,,en,全部删除,,en,逐个,,en,不用担心,,en,重新连接设备后,它们将自动重新安装,,en,无需安装CD,,en,通常,您的计算机应随后从休眠状态恢复,,en, including microsoft patches, magic swear words and god knows what. Eventually, I stumble on the sollution by chance. This may not work all the time, but in my case (Windows XP, SP3) it did the trick:

    1-right click on my computer
    2-go to the hardware tab
    3-click on device manager
    4-Go into Universal Serial Bus Controler (by the bottom)
    5-expand it into a list
    this list should be littered (that was my case) with USB-something, often some left overs of badly installed USB devices.

    6-remove them all, one by one, don’t worry, they will re-install automatically when the dvice is reconnected (no need for the installation CD)

    Normally your computer should then resume from hibernation.

    希望这个技巧可以节省我失去的时间,,en,马什,,en,我有远古时代的这个问题,,en,但最后我只是停止了休眠状态,问题就消失了,,en,去做这个,,en,转到控制面板,,en,性能和工具,,en,左侧有一个“任务,,en,清单,,en,按“调整电源设置,,en,您将在其中找到“平衡的电源/节电器/高性能,,en,已选,,en,您选择了哪一个,,en,按“更改计划设置,,en,链接并更改“让计算机进入睡眠状态”,,en,选择永远,,en,任务完成,,en,评论被关闭,,en,

  6. I had this problem for ages on vista, but in the end I just stopped the hibernate and the problem has gone away.

    To do this, go to control panel / performance and tools. On the left hand side there’s a ‘tasks’ list. Press ‘adjust power settings’ , where you will find one of ‘Balanced Power/Power saver/High performance’ selected. Which ever one you have selected, press the ‘change plan settings’ link and change the ‘put the computer to sleep’ option to never.

    Job done !!!
