    i upgraded my HP G60t-500 laptop to windows 8 last week
    everything is running smooth except when i close the lid, it goes to sleep as usual but when i open it, the laptop wakes up but only shows a black screen
    i tried reinstalling the chipset, graphics, and BIOS drivers and am still having this problem

    anyone know how to fix this?

    Make sure the correct power saving features are enabled in BIOS ?

    did you upgrade from 7 to 8 or did you install 8 clean?

    3. Expand “System Devices”
    4. Right Click “ACPI Lid”

    in my "early years", I often simply updated from one Os to the next and most of the time, it worked. Suddenly, i detected, that a clean install mostly or better say always brought much better results in speed, reliability etcetera and from then on, I only did it virgin wise. The only work was to reinstall all programs and drivers if necessary but it was always worth it until today. Facing the setup speed of a W8 compared with old system, I only can smile

    Be sure that you have the current video and chipset drivers for W8.

    Use Windows 7 drivers. They will work. It might be a good idea to reinstall drivers just to make sure they are clean. I agree that a clean install is always best. Easier to resolve problems.

    Clean Install: Boot from your win8 DVD or USB device, select custom install, select the partition you wish to install windows on, select the drive options and format ,
    Then continue with the installation
    After installation install your win7 chipset and graphics drivers etc...

    after you boot from dvd and select custom install it asks you to select which drive to install on after you selected your c drive dont press install, at the bottom of that window it says "drive options" click on that it will give you a format option after format select install

    i have the setup on my USB not a DVD

    when i run the setup it shows a license agreement followed by a screen that says "choose what to keep: windows settings etc/ personal files, nothing"

    i dont see a custom install option anywhere during the setup

    This is a known problem. The only workaround is to change the sleep/hibernate options so that it never goes into those modes. Do this from the control panel/power options.
