Overheating on sleep mode

Level 8


My model is: ROG STRX G614JV.

After laptop go to sleep mode (screen down) after 30 seconds the red sleep mode blinks go to normal and go back to blinks sleep. After 5 minutes laptop is in VERY high temperature :(.

Can I fix this? For long date this problem is bad for laptop hardware life.

does your laptop need cleaning of the fans?

Not need cleaning, my laptop have 4/5 months of use.
But I opened it to check and see that the fans are clean, inside it is still brand new from the factory.

I believe this is a windows issues I have seen reports in the past about it


But Fans dont work in sleep mode, its a problem for hardware in long time.
How make to fans work in sleep mode?

Level 12

Do you leave your system in sleep mode overnight?  Check windows setting system - power and battery power management I have mine set to balance only.

Also check to see if your Bios and drivers are up to date.

You can use hibernation instead of sleep mode

Level 10

Turn off "Fast Start Up" That will help.

Open Control Panel.
Click on Hardware and Sound.
Click on Power Options.
Click the "Choose what the power button does" option.
Click the "Change settings that are currently unavailable" option.
Under the "Shutdown settings" section, UN-check the "Turn on fast startup" option.
Click the Save changes button.

If fast startup option missing

If the option to enable fast startup is missing in Control Panel, it's likely because hibernation is disabled.
You can enable "Hibernate" with these steps:

Open Start.
Search for Command Prompt.
Right-click the top result and select the Run as administrator option.
Type the following command to view the power states supported on your computer and press Enter: powercfg /availablesleepstates
Confirm that "Fast Startup" is listed in the output.

Note: If the option is still missing, the computer may not support the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) state of "S4".
Type the following command to enable hibernation, which makes fast startup available in Control Panel, and press Enter: powercfg /hibernate on


Windows fast boot doesn't affect anything about this, I'm sorry but your idea for this doesn't work.

In the end, the solution was to buy a fan base for the notebook with 6000 RPM, which solved the overheating problem when in Windows suspended mode.

Asus would have to fix this ******ty problem with the fans not working properly in suspended mode.
