'Sleep' state disabled in Windows 8 Boot Camp?

    I happen to be using a mid-2012 Macbook Air, but I bet this could apply to any laptop.

    In Windows 8 Bootcamp, I noticed my computer was immediately hibernating when I closed the lid, instead of sleeping. I tried to adjust the power settings but 'sleep' was not a possible action to take when closing the lid, only 'hibernate' or 'shut down'. Here's the output of powercfg -a:

    Has anyone seen this before in boot camp? I'm using the latest drivers. I'm curious if the issue would lie in faulty boot camp drivers, or something else particular to my Windows installation. I could have sworn sleep was working properly before, but I am not 100% sure. This is a relatively new installation.

    Thanks.

    Did some more research here. I'm fairly confident it's an Apple driver issue. I exported a list of devices which reportedly *do not* support sleep states. I compared all devices, vs. those that support S1, S2, and S3 sleep states. The outcome was the same all three times. This indicates that the following devices are reporting that they do not support sleep of any kind:

    Notice the Apple-centric hardware. There are no unknown devices in Device Manager. If anyone has seen this before, or has a fix, it would be appreciated.

    Wanted to update this thread with my findings. Tracked down my problem to the Thunderbolt gig Ethernet adapter. If the adapter is connected while the computer boots (the only way to get it to work in Windows, as Windows Thunderbolt isn't plug-and-play), sleep mode is disabled. Continues to be disabled if the adapter is removed. This behavior is to be expected. See here:

    Windows 8 is the same. Case closed on this, I guess. Oh well!

    I was struggling with this issue as well. I have a Lacie Thuderbolt RAID drive on thunderbolt. Next was the fan control issue which I solved by downloading the macfan software by CrystalIdea Software. Wonderful software btw.

    The contortions and twists we have to go through to make Windows work in Mac (even though advertised as such) is making me sick.

    I am looking at buying a powerful PC at the moment.

    The sleep issue was probably caused by the thunderbolt driver for windows. My rMBP has the same issue when I use the thunderbolt ethernet dongle.
