    I'm running an XP virtual PC on Windows 7 Ulitmate and never had any problems with it until I started using the Windows 7 sleep mode. When I wake up my PC and try to start the virtual PC I get the error "could not enable integration features". Rebooting sometimes fixes the problem but it often requires shutting down my PC for a minute then restarting it. Any ideas?

    Seems like you might have a device driver that is not responding properly to sleep & wakeup. Are you using hybrid sleep? Have you checked the Power Management settings for various devices in Device Manager?

    Not sure about hybrid sleep. I looked in Power Options, Advanced Settings, Sleep, and Allow Hybrid Sleep is set to On. Does that mean I'm using hybrid sleep? Should I be?
    I looked through Device Manager and I think the only things I saw with power management options were the network adapter, keyboard and mouse. I didn't see anything out of the ordinary there.

    Hi Steve,

    By default, Windows 7 users hybrid sleep when you select sleep. Hybrid sleep combines the feature of keeping everything in active in memory for quick resume, and also writes the contents of memory to the hard drive like hibernate does. You can cut off the hybrid sleep option so that sleep mode will function as normal sleep to see if that helps with the problem.

    I cut off the hybrid sleep option and gave it one quick try: the Virtual PC worked fine. I'm going to let it sleep a few hours and try it again. Then I'll let it sleep overnight and if it still works in the morning, we may have it fixed.

    Well, I haven't had any problems starting the virtual PC after waking up my PC so I think it's fixed. Thanks everyone!
