I have been plagued for a long time by PDFs from network shares that appear blank or give memory errors after resuming from hibernation. I used to quit Reader altogether and reload the documents, but recently I found another workaround: Make a change to the PDF, for example by adding a sticky note or highlighting text. Then click on File -> Revert. Reader ...

I had the same issue (computer hibernating when it should be sleeping). When I applied the workaround to completely disable hibernation:powercfg -h off. It solved the problem for me. My computer would finally go to sleep. The cool thing was on a whim I turned hibernation back on powercfg -h on and the problem was still fixed. Now hibernation works when I say ...

For instance, if my drink spills on my laptop while it is off, I would expect damage to be minimal once it has been allowed to dry off completely. What about sleep mode? I tend to shut off my computer more often with the objective of being more safe. Should a spill occur, there are more components with power running through them in sleep mode ...

I have encountered this with many laptops I was using and also with one desktop PC. It was never present when they were new but it started after one or two years. It was present randomly with increasing frequency, regardless of their OS (Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8) or make (no-name, IBM Thinkpad, Dell, Lenovo). After all, I think I found the cause: ...

If your issue persists after erasing the OS, it could potentially be the flex cable that connects your hard drive to the motherboard that is defective. You can bring your computer down to an Apple Store and they can run a diagnostic. EDIT: The repair is about $50.

I'm looking for the same thing (Windows 8.1 now). Lenovo used to have a utility in its power management program that did this, but it's no longer there (mostly as Windows machines start back up a lot faster than they used to). I'm currently thinking there might be a way to create a scheduled task which is triggered by an event, which then starts a timer, ...

You could just disable the sleep-on-close-lid option, which should in turn prevent a wakeup when you open the lid. However, you'll then need to remember to put the laptop to sleep before closing the lid (the power button can be configured to do this).

It's not possible to run any code when the processor is asleep, so you'll either need to use external hardware, or periodically wake the computer and check the temperature. For external hardware, you could attach a temperature sensor to an Arduino and have it send a Wake On LAN (WOL) packet with an Ethernet shield. You could also attach it directly to the ...

For those running Tomato by Shibby, other Tomato based, or OpenWRT firmware on their router, you could write a little script to automatically wake up any PC on your local network that receives a new connection on its SSH port. I've written about this on my blog and the code is on github gist.

The option in Power Settings related to drives is Turn off Hard Disk After and it specifies how long after the most recent access before the HDDs power off. Set this to always on and that should do it. Note that if you change power plans, you will have to make the setting for the new power plan as well.
