So, something weird is happening here. The scenario is as follows:
- I put the computer to sleep
- A power outage occurs
- Power gets back
- I start the computer
- It boots normally as if power never went out (
Resuming Windowsshows up)
- At first it is a bit laggy but then it becomes perfect
Umm, I don't know what's going on here. I have had this happen many times in the past years. I have searched a bit, but found no answers.
I know the following:
- RAM needs power to keep the data within
- Sleeping basically keeps power to memory so that when you startup again, Windows resumes using what is already stored in the memory
- Hibernating on the other hand stores the memory on harddisk (hiberfil file), and then restores it back into Ram when PC starts again
- Hibernating is similar to shutting down the PC from a power standpoint. The power is cut from the whole board until the PC is used again
My hardware configuration is about 10+ years old:
- AMD Phenom 9850
- 6 GB (3x2GB) HyperX Kingston DDR2
- GA-MA790X-DS4 Motherboard
- Why is this happening?
- Can it be something specific to my hardware configuration?
