  1. Cannot manually put Win10 PC to sleep takes two tries


    When I go to Windows-Key>Power>Sleep, the display shuts off, but the hard drive continues to spin. I have the Automatic Power Settings to kick in after 10 minutes, but that doesn't work either. When I manually issue the Sleep command a second time, that DOES work, putting the display and PC to Sleep. WHY won't it work the first time? Thanks!

    :)

    Win10: windows update stuck at never ending loop ?

    When in win10:
    • Update&security -> Windows update -> Finding update... .... .... ....
    Planning to download the latest Win10.ISO (vers.1803) and manually update:
    - Then wait that my ordered new SSD arrives and clone the old HDD to it.

    Win10 PC Won't Sleep Anymore

    Win10 64bit V1903 with all published updates. Some weeks ago (maybe even longer) my PC stopped going to sleep after the specified time. I am setting the times in Power & Sleep. I have the screen set to turn off after an hour (and it does) and the PC to sleep after 2 hours but it doesn't. It used to. I have changed the sleep timer several times but that hasn't helped.

    I've looked at Device Management to see anything suspicious there but not sure what to look for.

    Suggestions on what to look for?
