Open device manager.... Look for an updated driver.. hopefully with WHQL, Windows Hardware Quality Labs approval.

RE: shut down

Thanks, it says it is the latest up dated driver.

RE: shut down

Actually, I would suggest to ditch the hibernation and sleep options and shut it down normally...always seems to be problems associated with those two functions

'... everytime I turn it off in rhe hibernate position, it shuts down completely...'
Not sure you can turn it off when in the hibernate position. Can you explain what you were doing?

is there a way to avoid it shutting down completely?
When it is in the hibernate mode is it infact just totally idle and not shut down? My Windows 7 computer (self build so may be different) goes into snooze mode and is totally silent as all data is transferred to the memory(RAM). I wake mine either by stabbing the keyboard or mouse button, can you do that? This for me eliminates the need to ever shut the computer down.

I have never ever used the hibernate feature on computers.

RE: shut down

I agree I never use hibernate I disable it on everything has tended to cause more problems than it is worth.
Mine are always up always ready.
I just set all the power options to always on.

RE: shut down

Well, I have always used the hibernate function as it shuts down the machine completly but just comes back to where I shut it down, it does not have to re boot. Now it does. I just don't get why.I suppose when I move it back to the ethernet cable it will return to normal, hopefully.

RE: shut down

Might go back to Device Manager and look at Properties for the wifi network adapter. It will have list of options that you can change settings for... maybe something there will stick out.

It also has a Power Management tab.. probably should make sure to allow power management to kill it when it hibernates or sleeps.

Win7.. hibernate & sleep modes should work, if settings all set ok and whql drivers.

RE: shut down

Maybe look in your wired network adapter too.. with it not in use,, maybe its the culprit.

RE: shut down

Hi christophern,

Out of curiosity could you post this,

Download WhoCrashed See link below for whocrashed.
This program checks for any drivers which may have been causing your computer to crash....

Click on the file you just downloaded and run it.

1 Put a tick in Accept then click on Next.

2 Put a tick in the Don't create a start menu folder then click Next

3 Put a tick in Create a Desktop Icon. then click on Install and make sure there is a tick in Launch Whocrashed before clicking Finish.
Click Analyze
It will want to download the Debugger and install it Say Yes

WhoCrashed will create report but you have to scroll down to see it.
Copy and paste it into your next reply.

Thanks Joe..:)
