    Default Windows 7 not waking from sleep

    I have a dell xps 630 with windows 7 on it and when it goes to sleep it can not be woke up. It wont wake from keyboard and mouse or from pushing the power button. It wont even turn off if i hold the power button, i have to unplug it. Any ideas.

    That is strange! Try checking up all the power options from the Power menu.

    Also, check if any BIOS update is available for your model upating the power standards.

    This problem was appearing with my desktop in Vista(without SP1).SP1 fixed this problem for me.In my opinion, you need to wait till you get the updates for this particular problem.
    Have you installed any video drivers? Because,incomatible video driver may cause this problem.

    I wanted to turn it on so the computer would sleep and save some money but for now I guess i will leave the sleep off. When the bata starts i will submit a bug report on it to both dell and MS. I tried holding the power button, it doesn't do anything.
