    Computer takes a few minutes to enter manual sleep


    Okay so a few weeks ago I had this issues where it would take the computer too long to go into sleep, so I had restarted it to see if it would fix it but it didn't, any ideas?

    Could it be Hard Disk Sentinel?

    :)

  2. Computer goes into Sleep Mode after a few minutes of non-use

    Hi Rimmer,

    In order to troubleshoot the issue, I would suggest you to try the following steps and check if the issue persists.

    Step 1:

    To diagnose whether this issue occurs in “Safe Mode”, let’s reboot the computer in safe mode with networking and check if the issue appears there as well.

    Safe mode is a diagnostic mode for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. This helps us in identifying whether the issue is due to some third
    party programs conflict. The word Safe mode appear in the concern of your monitor to identify which windows mode you are using.

    Follow the steps given below and check if that helps.


    • Unplug external devices connected to the computer expect
      keyboard and mouse.

    • From login screen, press
      Shift key
      and click on the Power button and click
      restart to enter Advanced Boot Options.

    • In this page select troubleshoot
      option.

    • And click on Advance option.

    • Select Startup setting from advance option.

    • Here you will find Restart button, just click on it.

    • In new windows press F5 to login with safe mode with networking.
    If the issue does not exist, try to clean boot the system.

    Step 2: Perform Clean Boot.

    Placing your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. Check this issue in clean boot state.

    • Press Windows key + X key. And select
      Run.
    • Type msconfig in the Run box and hit Enter.
    • On the Services tab of the System Configuration dialog box, tap or click to select the
      Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then tap or click
      Disable all.
    • On the Startup tab of the System Configuration dialog box, tap or click
      Open Task Manager.
    • On the Startup tab in Task Manager, for each startup item, select the item and then click
      Disable.
    • Close Task Manager.
    • On the Startup tab of the System Configuration dialog box, tap or click
      OK, and then restart the computer.
    Note:
    After clean boot troubleshooting step, follow the section "How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot" in the provided link to return your computer to Normal startup mode.

    Computer goes into Sleep Mode after a few minutes of non-use

    I have not made any changes to the hardware.

    Method 1, worked OK until the latest October cumulative update arrived. That is, the computer goes into Sleep Mode after a few minutes of non-use. I have tried changing the Power Options (Method 1, if the issue persist ...) but cannot find any option that
    sets the hard disk to Never.

    Computer takes a few minutes to enter manual sleep

    Managed to fix it yesterday I uninstalled Hard Disk Sentinel and disabled hybrid sleep as well as wake up timers.

    For now my computer goes to sleep almost instantly about 2-3 secs. Don't think I'll ever use Hard Disk Sentinel.
