I installed a new Samsung EVO 840 SSD on my Asus K53SD laptop. Now the laptop hangs when it tries to go into sleep mode. I have to force a shutdown to get back into Windows.
I have installed all applicable drivers. (Updating or installing Asus drivers as well). I have also updated the BIOS firmware recommended by Asus. Using Samsung Magician I have optimized and enabled all recommended options. At first I thought it was hanging in sleep mode because the monitor turns off, but the fans continue running and the light on the power button stays on. I am currently running Windows 8.1.
If it helps I am using Sleep Mode S3. I'm not sure what other information to provide, but if more is needed I'll put it up.
UPDATE: When running powercfg -requests I get the following:
SYSTEM: [DRIVER] \FileSystem\srvnet An active remote client has recently sent requests to this machine.
UPDATE 2: After refreshing Windows with the installation media I now have no errors with chkdsk or sfc /scannow. I also show 'None' on everything with powercfg -requests.
I still get the following when running a powercfg /energy:
Platform Power Management Capabilities:PCI Express Active-State Power Management (ASPM) Disabled PCI Express Active-State Power Management (ASPM) has been disabled due to a known incompatibility with the hardware in this computer.
- I have now checked to make sure no drivers are installed incorrectly and checked to make sure no devices are set to keep the computer awake.
- I have checked to make sure I am not in a HomeGroup (I saw that as an issue in some threads.
UPDATE 3: I have noticed that the only power related function that actually works "intermittently" is restart. So Sleep, Hibernate and "fast startup," and cold shut down all fail. It almost seems like any attempt to store data right before doing something power related freezes the computer.
I am completely stumped at this point.
