    Computer shuts down instead of going on sleep, and when it turns off by itself it's...



    Does anyone know how to solve a problem I keep having on my laptop - every time I press sleep, it shuts down (meaning I lose everything I had open) and every time I leave it on for more than 10 minutes without use, it shuts down also - since I can't press the sleep button as it goes off instead, I was leaving it on, but it's shutting down anyways. Anyone has had the same problem, and found a way to solve it? I checked the power settings, all seems normal. I've also restarted it and still nothing changes. I've also tried to re-install a driver, nothing has changed. Practically tried all option I found online.

    Need to solve this ASAP as I keep losing all my university work, and I'm currently during my exam period

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Computer shuts down instead of going to sleep or hibernate

    Good afternoon,

    My pc shuts down instead of going to sleep. When I press the on/off button, the sleepbutton, close the lid, or click on 'sleep' in the startmenu, my computer "pretends" going to sleep: the ledlight on the case is blinking, as if the system is sleeping.

    But, when I want to wake up the computer, it does not wake up, but it restarts. All applications are closed, unsaved work is vanished, et cetera...

    The problem is there: 'fast boot' enabeled or not.

    The problem has arrived just a couple of days ago, just after a windows upgrade

    (which it does without my approval)

    What I have already tried (and failed):


    Who will help me?

    Sincerely,

    Brecht

    System configuration:

    Asus N551jk

    Intel Core I7

    Gefore GTX 850m

    Windows 10

    Desktop Shutting Down Instead of Going to Sleep

    After the recent Windows 10 update, April 2017, my computer started shutting down instead of going to sleep. My settings have not changed and are still set to go to sleep after 15 minutes. When the computer was updating it did get stuck on a reboot. I had
    to shut it down manually and restart it. After I did that I rechecked for updates and it said my computer is up to date.

    Computer shuts down instead of going in to sleep mode

    Since two weeks my Dell laptop is shutting down every time when:

    • Closing the laptop
    • Pressing the power button short
    • Manually via the Start Menu
    All these options are set to Sleep Mode and not Shut Down.
