I have recently installed Debian on my laptop and am now dual-booting it with Windows 8. Windows 8 shows following problems: after spending some time setting up Debian and booting up Win again, I noticed that no soft power off options worked on my Windows 8. By that I mean, I can not hibernate, sleep or shutdown. The GUI doesn't give any notification of failure. What happens is, screen goes blank (like it should), but doesn't power off; after moving the mouse, it lights back up, just to see that it's at the log on (technically unlock screen, because it doesn't log the user out).
shutdown /h, everything happens like explained above. After failed attempt to hibernate, I unlock the workstation and this is what the
cmd console looks like:
The requested system device cannot be found.(15299)
I have been googling for the past week or so to no avail. I ask your help in diagnosing the problem. What information could I provide?
shutdown /s /f shuts down successfully. Though, same doesn't work for hibernation. And System Event Logs don't provide any info.
