Then grisoft brought out AVG7 which is all singing, all dancing and they are no longer supporting v6.
When I put v7 on my Thinkpad 600, it messed up the lappie going into suspend when I shut the lid. Sometimes and not all of the time. This was quite alarming when I couldn't understand why my battery sometimes went flat when I wasn't expecting it. It was lucky that I noticed this lack of suspend and followed it up from there. Hmmm...
Uninstall AVG7 and the problem went.
Re-install AVG7 and the problem came back.
So back to uninstalling AVG7.
This means I have no AV on my lappie - which isn't too serious a problem because it very seldom connects direct to the internet. It usually just goes into the home network to download the day's work onto the 'master' machine.
Anyone else had a problem like this and found a solution?
If its only doing it some of the time then it looks like something [AVG] wont allow itself to go to bed if its working. Have to log off meself Chris but I'll have a look around tomorrow if your not sorted.
A normal shutdown isn't really an option. When I use the machine, I need it to be on line quite quickly - a Thinkpad 600 is not the fastest booting machine in the world, and I don't want to keep the customer waiting!
You're replicating my thoughts as well. It does look like a peculiarity of AVG7.
Pmtshoot is a tool that you can use to identify the program or device driver that is preventing your computer from entering either a standby or suspended mode. Pmtshoot monitors your computer when it enters a suspended mode, and then attempts to identify programs or device drivers that may prevent your computer from entering a suspended mode
Sorry for the delay. It's taken me this long to get home, get the day's paperwork and admin done and get into here.
You clever little researcher, you!
I'm going to load that routine into the lappie, but I'm going to hold fire on reloading AVG7 until a less critical time so that I can try some experiments and not panic about the battery going flat at the most inconvenient time (don't they always?).
So it may be a few days before the thread pops near the top again, but I ain't forgotten it!
