Windows 7 – Hangs on hibernate and logoff

After a few Windows update I was encountering a very annoying feature Winking smile that I picked up.

When my PC was docked in the network and tried to hibernate or logoff. Frequently I noticed that the logoff or hibernation process did not complete.

The PC ended with the disks spinning and a black screen. Making me to brute force the shutdown ?

After nosing in the event viewer I noticed an event ID 1014

After googling a bit I found an article that referred to this one, and claimed that it would solve this very  same isseu

Run the following command in an elevated command prompt in Windows 7:

netsh interface tcp set global rss=disabled

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

netsh int ip set global taskoffload=disabled

If the above does not work you can try this one : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/953367/en-us

I also experienced closing Skype before Hibernating was helping a lot ?

So I gave it a try and indeed it was gone ! struggled with this for a few months Steaming mad
