What the title says. I'm stuck in the sneak mode animation (crouched) but I'm not actually sneaking (enemies can see me normally and the crosshair is the non-sneaking version). Pressing the sneak button does nothing, remapping it doesn't work, and loading the game doesn't work. Any ideas?

Like I said, hitting the sneak button again does nothing. It's definitely a bug of some sort - I've just gone back to a previous save at this point, but for future reference it'd be great to know if there was a better fix.

My CAPS Lock has to be on for me to run. Then i just hold shift to sneak.
Hope that helps.
I'm gonna shove it, and love it, and dance around above it

Okay, read the first post guys. My character is crouching as though he was sneaking, yet the effects of sneaking are not active. I can still hit caps to toggle run/walk as per normal. The crosshair does not have the sneaking icon. I'm moving at the reduced rate as though I was sneaking (for both walking and running) and cannot actually enter sneak mode, nor make my character stand up.

Ive just realised why you were stuck in sneak mode. You may be over encumbered.

I figured out a way to get around this bug. I have Skyrim for the PS3, but seeing how you have the same issue that I had (and you have the PC version) I think it should work for you as well.

To fix, I went into the nearest city and activated one of the blacksmith's tools (I used the smelter, but I imagine that any of the tools would produce the same effect). As it changes your character's animation in the third person perspective, it fixed my character from being stuck in a crouched position without receiving the bonuses from sneak mode.

I did not need to make anything, I just needed to activate the tool so that it brought up the menu to begin the smelting process. Once that happened, I backed out of the menu and was able to move around again with no issue.

I hope this helps you out!
