Windows 7 does not come back from Suspend mode

We've installed Windows 7 on a PC and when it goes to Suspend mode, it does not come back. We've changed the mode from S1 to S3, and it turns off the system, only recovering the state if the Power button is pressed (on S1, it seems to be on stand by)

I bet it has to do with a driver like the vidio driver I used to have this problem until I finally sorted it with a latest nvidia driver as all previous drivers had caused restart and suspend wouldn't work I usually got a bsod or my laptop just resarted and then got a bsod the only way to get it to work was shutdown and statup nothing else worked as the vidio driver is deeply linked in windows 7
s1 is a suspend but s3 is a suspend to ram where the ram is powered for quick wake from suspend

it sounds like you paging file has been increased to much and so when windows tries to suspend the isn't enough memory on your machine to support this option.

Try decreasing your paging file and let us know.

Also are you getting any errors in the event logs?

Hi David:

W7 has been just installed.

Thanks anyway!

Hi all. Finally I've installed the latest video drivers updates but it is happening the same. Nevertheless, I've discovered that now when it goes to suspend mode, I need to press the Power button to have the PC online again. I'm not pretty sure why now this is required (keyboard and mouse are enabled in W7 to wake up PC, but not on the BIOS, to avoid starting up the PC by mistake)

yes thats also in the bios
