  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

    Computer Shuts Down Instead of Going to Sleep

    I have an ASUS Q550LF laptop running Windows 10, 64 bit. Instead of going to sleep, it shuts down. This happens whether I close the lid, let it idle for a while, or select sleep from the shutdown menu options. I've looked up the issue, and it seems to be
    fairly common, but none of the solutions I've found have worked.

    Things I've tried:

    • Changing the values in Power Options
    • Updating my IMEI driver
    • Disabling my IMEI driver
    • Checking the BIOS to make sure Power Saving mode is enabled

    Solutions I've seen that I can't do:

    • Roll back the IMEI driver to a previous version - I don't have a previous version of the driver to roll back to, and I can't seem to find one online, so I can't do that
    • Uncheck the 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' option in the Power Management tab of IMEI Properties - This tab doesn't exist for me

    I'd greatly appreciate any help.

    Windows 10 - my computer shuts down instead of going to sleep

    My computer just started shutting down rather than going to sleep. This happens if I put the computer in sleep mode, or if I just step away for the computer for 20 minutes (the length of time I have set for it to go into sleep mode) -- in both cases the
    computer completely shuts down and all the windows or documents I had open are closed.

    It's an ASUS, Windows 10.

    I saw some questions about this and tried their suggestions - I checked my Power & Sleep settings, they are all correct. I also followed multiple pages' advice to remove the Intel Management Engine Driver (because it was likely outdated) and download the
    most recent version. The only problem is, once I've downloaded the new version, my computer says that it's "not supported." The version I downloaded was "Intel Management Engine Driver for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10" which says it's compatible with Windows
    10 and 64-bit operating systems, which mine is. Any advice about where to go from here?
