  1. Failure to sleep solved by in-place upgrade


    For as long as I can remember, I've had a power plan that turns off the monitor ten minutes of inactivity and puts the system to sleep after thirty minutes. Recently the system stopped sleeping. After numerous failed attempts to correlate this with some specific windows update or recent application update, I decided to resort an in-place update (Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade) which appears to have corrected the problem. In retrospect, I should have tried this much earlier.

    This post is just to endorse this problem solving procedure and to express thanks for the referenced tutorial.

    :)

    Failure to sleep solved by in-place upgrade

    In-place upgrade - XP to 10 without losing the apps


    Wolfgang, you need at least two steps (Vista & Seven) between XP and 10, the Eight can be bypassed:
    • XP can only be in-place upgraded to Vista, not Seven or later
    • Vista can be in-place upgraded to Seven but not Eight or later
    • Seven can be in-place upgraded to 10
    • Ergo: XP to Vista is a must, as well as Vista to Seven but then you can bypass the Eight and jump to 10
