How do I get back the wake-from-sleep capability after upgrading to Windows 8.1?

Mike B December 27, 2013

On my ultrabook, the rapid start technology no longer functions – the computers will not wake up from sleep mode and get a BSOD after a minute or two. It requires a complete power down (holding in the power button), then going through the cold boot process, which essentially negates the the advertised ‘fast boot’ feature entirely. There are many many instances mentioned on ultrabook vendor forums, but no real solutions nor vendor acknowledgement that this is becoming a common problem. Has anyone found a solution?

    When you get a BSOD there is an error code, what is it?
