Win 7 cloning powerdown

Thread needs solution

I have been trying to clone a internal sata drive under win 7 64 using TI 2010 with no success.
The process starts out fine, but when I reboot, into the black screen, I only get through 30 40% of the copy before my system shuts down. I've tried 4 times, and during the process - moving my mouse or hitting the space key in case the machine thinks its in active, and it always shuts off. Once it does that a quick strike of the space bar wakes the machine back up but will not turn the monitor back on so I have no way of knowing if the process is continuing. I power down and restart the machine.

After rebooting my disk is not found by windows so I have to reformat it and start over.

Duh- I wasn't in the bios - reset my win 7 power settings to 5 hours and the cloning worked perfectly! unplugged the old C and booted off the clone. Perfect!

Thank you for the tip about disabling sleep before cloning the disk.

I was bitten by the same problem, machine went to sleep during my first disk clone attempt, and when it woke up, the screen stayed blank, even though TrueImage 2010 continued to clone the disk.

After reading your tip, configured PC to not sleep, and the display to not blank, working around the Acronis software bug, and was able to clone my system to a larger disk.

Thank you for the tip,

If you clone using the bootable True Image CD, you will not have to format the drive, at least that was the case in previous versions.

The problem with that is that the Bootable Rescue disk created by TrueImage 2010, build 5055, would hang during boot on my computer. I have not yet tried the newest build, 6029, to see if the bootable rescue disk is improved...

I just verified that TrueImage 2010, or Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, has a problem. The computer goes to sleep during the middle of a manual backup while in Windows 7!

Is this a bug in TrueImage, or in Windows 7? You'd think that the disk device driver and kernel would communicate to avoid putting the machine to sleep while a process is actively hammering on the hard disk!

It's a TI problem. The programmers failed to set the "ExecutionStateContinuous" flag so that the machine is prevented from falling asleep while TI is executing.

Entering sleep mode on Vista and Windows 7 happens when the User Activity Timer times out, and only keyboard or mouse activity will reset the timer. Disk activity will not.
