So it's definitely an ATI driver issue? Since it's actually happening across different brands..

Ok, let's try one last thing mate. Do you have Utorrent and trixx? I close all programs and leaving minimized chrome, trixx and utorrent. Never have had this wake up problem again wink.gif

P.S. I have 13.2 beta 4 installed.

Haha okay, I'll try that tonight and leave it overnight. I'll get back with the results tomorrow smile.gif

Btw, does the 13.2 Beta releases help with this issue at all? Also, I think there's already a 13.2 Beta 5. Contemplating installing that.. :/

I also have this issue. Happens maybe once every 20 sleep?

I got a Sapphire Vapor-X and Sapphire Dual-X. Display to connect to Vapor-X. Based on these facts, I think this issue might be Trixx related since someone mentioned it above. Since cards from other brands don't seem to suffer from the same issue, it probably isn't AMD driver.

I just happened to switch to MSI AB yesterday. I'll give you guys an update in a few weeks if needed.

You have a CF set-up? Well, my issue differs from yours quite a bit. Since I don't have a CrossFire set-up and my problem happens everyday and not just when once every 20 sleeps but even when the screen is just idle for a couple of hours.

I don't think my issue lies with Trixx because I've tried uninstalling it but nothing changes. Also, I've read about other cards of the HD 7XXX series having these issues regardless of brand. But it mostly happens to MSI and Sapphire.

Well this is extremely frustrating, but I was snooping around ASUS's website and I realized I haven't installed a certain MoBo firmware update (not BIOS) which has Windows 8 compatibility fixes. On top of that, I also installed the LucidLogix Virtu MVP software from ASUS it's been good so far.

I'm gona leave my PC to idle overnight right now. I'll report back tomorrow with the results.

In the mean time, any additional help is STILL greatly appreciated, so keep 'em coming! biggrinsmiley.gif

UPDATE:

Okay, so it hung again. But this time I realized something. When it hung, the caps lock/num lock/scroll lock keys were unresponsive. So that means it's not just a graphic card problem already is it?

What could it be? Would an unstable OC cause such problems? Should I feed it more voltage? I mean, I can run 20 hours of Prime95 without any problems on this current setting (4.5GHz @ 1.32V) and pass 30 IBT Test on MAX with the Xtreme Burn setting turned on.

Or is it a hardware issues somewhere?

Just when I thought I found a clue to what's happening, I'm completely lost again..

HELP ohno-smiley.gif

Obvious question here- if you remove your overclock, i.e if you reset your bios to stock settings, does it still happen?

Edit: your motherboard bios, not your gpu just to clarify

Yes it does.. I've tried setting back to default clock speeds and it still happens. Could it be because of a corrupted OS? I mean, I've had quite alot of BSODs while stress testing it..

I assume you have your GPU overclocked? Any unofficial tool makes this sleep issue, since it messes idle clocks aswell (AB, Trixx etc..). I have readed that issue gets fixed if you overclock with just CCC limits. Im getting also the sleep issues with a twist biggrin.gif If my OC aint stable, and driver crashes -> It wont recover, artifacting continues in every game until i reboot PC. Im gonna myself try today uninstalling all unofficial tools and see if the problem persist. If not, ill let it be, happens so random anyway. Hope you understand what i just wrote, english aint my primary language biggrin.gif

sorry to labor the point, but did you just reset the clocks or do a complete restore to default for the bios? There are many options that control power management states of the processor which people often set/clear without fully understanding what they do and these can stop the system from resuming. However thats usually only a problem with sleep/resume cycles but thought it worth to check anyway.

When your OS gets in a mess, anything could happen really so its possible, if you have a spare hard drive anywhere you can use to install windows onto it would let you test this.

One thing that may help shed some light onto the problem could be to use a remote desktop application to login your system from a laptop or another PC and see if its just the display that isn't working or if the entire system has come down. If you run win 7 pro, then you just need to enable remote desktop access and use another 7/vista machine from within the same network subnet or failing that you could install TeamViewer and use that from any PC in the world to access your computer remotely. If you get a desktop up you can at least probe the hardware and see what you GPU thinks is going on. You may even be able to wake the computer.

Oh, and one more thought, do you have your keyboard and mouse plugged into a hub in the monitor or in the back of the computer? If the monitor hub, it could just be that when the display goes to sleep it disables the hub therefore never allowing you back onto the computer! If you hit the power button instantaneously to initiate shutdown does the screen come back to life to show the shutdown sequence?

I don't think it's your graphic card at all. From what I remember before, Asus mobo's had a RMA issue where one of the motherboard voltages was too low or too high it would not wake up from idle. However I don't think this is only an Asus issue where I had the same thing while on a gtx260 from back in the day (and other more recent setups). My issue was solved from tinkering with the bios power option, where I changed it to S1+S3 power options (as far as I can remember) that made my black screen wake up after idle. I could be wrong and my memory's too fuzzy to be precise on the issue. However check and tinker with your bios power options and see if any of the setting change helps.
