  2. PC turns on straight away after sleep mode is on

    Hi Danny,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    I see that you system is still on even if the sleep mode option is turned on. This might be due to the change in the power plan settings.

    Please follow the below methods and check if it works,

    Method 1: I suggest you to run in-built Power troubleshooter and check. Follow the steps:

    • Press Windows Key + X.
    • Click on Control Panel.
    • Select Troubleshooting on the left pane, click on
      View All.
    • Click on Power to run the troubleshooter.
    Method 2: If the above method doesn’t help, I would suggest you to reset and restore all of the default Power Plans back with their default settings. Follow the steps.

    • Press Windows Key + X.
    • Type Power Options and then Enter.
    • In the left pane Select Change when the computer sleeps.
    • Select Restore default settings on this plan.
    • Restart the computer and check with the issue.
    Reply us if you have further queries we will be glad to assist you.

  4. computer goes straight up to sleep whenever screen turns off

    "Getting Windows Ready Don't turn off your computer" goes on forever

    Hi,

    I bought my father a new desktop computer this christmas - Lenovo IdeaCentre 510S (so it has Windows 10, and as far as I know it has all the latest updates to it's os after I set it up). And it has been working until this morning when it apparently started to update itself, and according to my parents there has been a blue screen with "Getting Windows Ready Don't turn off your computer" on it since 9 am - it's now 15 pm.

    I've turned the computer off and on again and the screen goes blank, then a swirly thing appears at the bottom while the screen is still black and it goes straight into the blue screen of annoyance. I can't even get into the safe mode despite pressing often F8.

    I've googled and googled and nothing else works!



    What can I do??? (and I need simple, step-by-step instructions please)
