    Computer Sleeps/Wakes fine manually, but won't wake from auto-sleep


    Hello,

    My motherboard is a P8Z77-V, with Gigabyte 7950 video card, if that matters.

    I did the windows 10 upgrade, and all seems well, except waking from Standby.

    If I go into start menu, and choose sleep, everything spins down, and the computer shuts itself off. I am assuming this 'sleep' is some sort of hibernate. Great, love it.

    But when I leave the computer over night I come back and the monitors are off,but lights on tower on. I am assuming this is standby mode? Anyway, I can't wake the computer from it, using mouse or keyboard (both USB). Clicking power button on tower does nothing. I generally have to click the reset button on tower and do a full boot sequence. When I log in, I do not get a message about windows not shutting down properly (maybe that message is no more in 10?), but clearly it is a fresh desktop.

    I reset all bios settings, and update to most recent bios. I have the latest graphics drivers.

    This is driving me nuts! Suggestions or trouble shooting tips?

    Here is some investigating I did, hopefully it helps:
    Code: D:\Users\Shea.Wilbur>powercfg /a The following sleep states are available on this system: Standby (S3) Hibernate Hybrid Sleep Fast Startup The following sleep states are not available on this system: Standby (S1) The system firmware does not support this standby state. Standby (S2) The system firmware does not support this standby state. Standby (S0 Low Power Idle) The system firmware does not support this standby state.[/quote] Code: C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg /sleepstudy S0 Low Power Idle is not supported on this machine. Cannot run tool.\[/quote] Anything else to try? BIOS settings to check?

    :)

    Schedule Windows 10 Update Time

    Is there a way to set Windows 10 to not wake my computer from hibernation? Due to the nature of what I do with my computer, I have to leave it running for long periods of time without going to sleep, so I have disabled the auto sleep function, and when I
    stop using the computer to save power I put the computer to sleep or hibernate.

    My issue is that when Windows Update determines that an update needs to be installed, it will wake my computer up from hibernate or sleep, and my computer won't go back to sleep until I get home, often 24 or more hours later. Can I schedule Windows Update
    to not wake my computer from hibernation, or wait to check until I wake it? I don't mind the updates, I just need my computer to stay in hibernation when I put it there.
