    Default Can't wake computer from sleep! among other things


    When my computer goes to sleep and I am supposed to be able to push the
    power button to wake it up, it does nothing. I have tried everything I
    can think of to wake my computer, but I have NO success. The only way
    to get it to wake up is to hold the power button down till it turns
    itself off and then reboot.

    I also cannot install Windows updates When I click the update
    button it trys to download but instead basically just sits there and
    tells me it is trying to download, without ever actually doing anything.
    I end up just having to stop it. I had not installed downloads for
    quite awhile because when I first got my computer the updates kept
    ruining my system and I'd have to do a restore, but I've been having so
    many other problems with the computer I decided to try doing it again.
    I hate Vista and am starting to hate PCs and swear on my life my next
    computer will be an Apple

    I have Vista basic. It also went into a "coma" mode. I turned my
    computer off and then rebooted it.

    Did you find a solution to it not waking from sleep mode?

    And has this ever worked with your computer, or is this something recent?
    If something recent, what's changed?

    No solution yet. Its been doing this for awhile! I found a link on
    Window's website that noted this problem as a hot topic and supposedly
    provided the answer, but I had to run out the door and forgot to look
    for it again till yesterday but now I can't find it anywhere!

    I also experience the same problem with my laptop running Vista Home
    Premium SP1. The second best thing is just to do a hibernate, if that
    works for you.

    If your Windows Vista stops responding when you resume the computer from hibernation try the Hotfix from KB928135.

    Regarding your WU issue, visit Cannot Update Windows Vista and also see if any of the links at the bottom of the page help you.
