Crash in sleep mode

ax h 21 Reputation points

When my computer enters the hibernation mode, it will shut down immediately. I use the MSI motherboard, which has turned off all energy saving methods. The power on the computer is set to the default balance mode. I have been meeting this problem since I assembled the computer. And T tried to find reason using WinDbg, however I cannot understand this report.

    Hello All,

    My suggestion that killing all instances of EpicWebHelper.exe before entering hibernation might be an effective measure against this bug check probably sounds rather implausible. In case it is of any use to someone, here is the (rather lengthy) explanation of why I came to that conclusion.

    The power policy manager experienced a fatal error.  
    Arg1: 00000000000000f0, The system failed to complete (suspend) a power transition in a timely manner.  
    Arg2: 0000000000000004, The system power state in transition. 0x4 = PowerSystemSleeping3  
    Arg3: 000000000000000e, The sleep checkpoint most recently reached. 0xE = PopSleepCheckpointSuspendDriversBefore  
    Arg4: ffffaa094b147040, A pointer to the thread currently processing the request.  

    The stack of the thread that initiated the bug check is:

    The read request is in a queue, waiting to be sent to the storage device; the storage device is not used for boot, paging, dump or hibernation; as we can see (!fxdevice), it is in a lower-power (D3) state:

            Device Object: 0xffffaa093b475050  
            DevNode: 0xffffaa093b33c780  
            UniqueId: "\_SB.PC00.SAT0.PRT5"  
            InstancePath: "SCSI\Disk&Ven_WDC&Prod_WD42EJRX-89BFNY0\4&35b87281&0&050000"  
            Device Power State: PowerDeviceD3  
            Component Count: 1  
                    Component 0: Current:F0/Deepest:F0 - ACTIVE (RefCount = 8)  

    libcef.dll (The Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF)) is a very large DLL (more than 100 megabytes) and has a very large PE “Exception Directory”; it also imports the routines timePeriodBegin/timePeriodEnd (which call NtSetTimerResolution) and RegisterPowerSettingNotification (which enables the DLL to learn of events like hibernation). NtSetTimerResolution walks the stack and needs to read the Exception Directory to do this on the x64 architecture.

    All of the above factors combine to cause the bug check. Killing all instances of EpicWebHelper.exe before entering hibernation would help to verify the correctness of the analysis. Moving the installation of the software that uses/includes EpicWebHelper to the system disk would be a medium term workaround.

    There is no easy “good” fix for this problem, but it is also not easy to exploit the issue to create an unprivileged tool to crash Windows; the difficulties include:

    • Patience is needed; the crash would happen 10 minutes after initiating hibernation.
    • A “non-system” disk is required to hold some DLLs.
    • The timing of the call to timePeriodBegin/timePeriodEnd has to be finely judged – after requests to the storage device have been paused but while the thread can still run.
    • Access to the exception table needs to cause a hard page fault.

    Hi @ax h

    From looking around at similar issues (example is the fix usually ends up being a factory reset of Windows.

    These issues are usually driver/software related and are very time consuming to pinpoint. I'd recommend you download the "Create Windows 10 installation media" and install it to a USB drive (minimum 8 GB requirement):


    If this is helpful please accept answer.

    Hello axh,

    This link seems particularly relevant to your issue: "Debugging Stop 0xA0 – INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR (Part 2)" (the bug check args 1 - 3 match your values). It starts with the text:

    This is quite an easy bugcheck to debug if you know [...]

    That said, and having read the link contents carefully, I downloaded your most recent dump and am still puzzling about the cause :-(

    There are however plenty of interesting ideas to follow up. I will let you know if I make any useful progress.

    Thank everyone, now I set harddisk never sleep and it works normally 3 days.
