  1. Cannot update from 1709 without breaking system


    I have an old HP Laptop which I still use and it is running Windows 10 1709. I would like to update this machine to a more current version of Windows such as 1909, but cannot because every time I upgrade the system it breaks the wake from sleep function. And without a working wake from sleep, I cannot do a backup on the machine automatically.


    The symptoms are simple. I upgrade from 1709 to 1803 and everything appears to be working. Then I put my machine to sleep for the night and when I get up next morning, the machine has not been backed up. When the machine tries to wake from sleep, instead of waking, it just does a cold reboot instead.


    So, I've been fighting with Microsoft's asinine automatic updates, trying to keep the machine from performing an automatic update that breaks it.


    Does anybody know what changed in 1803 or later that prevents my computer from waking from sleep properly.


    I've tried a clean install of 1909 on this computer and it still breaks the wake from sleep.


    Thank you.


    Greg ...

    Windows 10 Pro and Ergnomic Break Reminder

    Hi,



    Apologies for the late reply.



    Do you remember installing any break reminder software?



    It looks like it is a pop up from a break reminder software.



    I suggest you to look for this in Programs in features and uninstall it if do not use it.



    Try the following steps:


    • Press Windows + R keys to open Run Command

    • Type Appwiz.cpl and hit enter

    • Search for the programs and un-install it.


    Regards,
