  1. Dell desktop computer has hard time waking up after sleep


    I have a Dell desktop computer with Windows 10 home edition. When the computer goes to sleep and I try to wake it up, it goes through a few tries of energy saver before it stays on. The screen just goes dark for a few seconds and the Dell logo shows. It will recycle recycle briefly through sleep mode. I have undone the automatic sleep and put it to sleep manually but it still has problems waking up.


    Thank you for any help you can provide.

    :)

  2. Dell Inspiron 3543 wake from sleep issue.

    Hello All,

    Below is my laptop details

    Laptop Model: Dell inspiron 3543

    OS: Win 10 Pro 64Bit (ver 1803) Build: 17134.345

    BIOS ver: 05.06.05

    Processor: i3

    Ram : 8GB

    HDD: 1TB

    I am facing a issue related to wake from sleep, where when i put my laptop to sleep either manually or auto sleep set to 60min but when i try to wake it by opening the lid or pressing the power button there is no display ( this scenario is for short sleep
    duration).

    The 2nd scenario is overnight sleep where i manually put the laptop to sleep and morning when i try to wake the laptop the battery is drained or same as the 1st scenario no display.

    In both the cases, i have to long press the power button ( Hard restart).

    As per my observation, it might have happened after the recent Windows update KB4462919, KB4462930.

    Steps taken to rectify the issue:

    • BIOS Update - Speedstep disabled in BIOS and Fast startup from Power Option.
    • Power option reset
    • Hybrid sleep off and on
    • Hibernate off and on
    • Sleep Duration change
    • Allow this computer to wake from sleep WIFI and Ethernet Disabled
    • Disable modern/connected standby HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power --- CsEnabled set to 0
    Thanks in advance

    Regard`s

    Dell WIN10 DESKTOP (NOT LAPTOP!) does not wake from sleep


    Dell WIN10 DESKTOP (NOT LAPTOP!) does not wake from sleep.

    After frustration with sleep issues, PC was set to never sleep and hibernation was DISABLED, hybrid sleep was set to OFF.

    PC went into sleep overnight, and cannot be waked.

    After manual shutdown & holding for 45 seconds, PC goes immediately back into sleep mode on pressing start button, with light flashing but will not wake up. No opportunity to get control of the PC.

    USB wire-connected keyboard & mouse are not "on" and thus not recognized by sleeping system.

    IE, NO WAY TO GET COMMAND PROMPT or GET CONTROL OF BOOT or SYSTEM, SO CANNOT TRY THE MANY TIPS FOUND IN FORUMS FOR ENDLESS SLEEP MODE, NOR CAN I UPDATE DRIVERS - sorry for CAPs but I've seen many suggestions, all of which rely on being able to access the BIOS or Safe Start etc, so are not helpful to this case. Thanks in advance for any help!

    computer wake-up after sleep

    Hi Bill,

    There's a possibility that the settings that enables your Space bar to wake your computer up from sleep was reset after updating Windows. If this what had happened, we suggest that you just re-set it up. See the steps below on how to do
    so:

    • Press Windows key and type keyboard in.
    • Click on Keyboard option and a pop-up windows should show up.
    • From there, go to > Hardware tab > Properties >
      Change settings > Power management > Allow this device to wake the computer >
      OK/Apply.

    Try the if the steps did work and let us know any updates.
