  1. Failure to Sleep


    I have encountered a few episodes of this nature recently: Computer was awake around 0500 local today when it should have been asleep. I checked powercfg -requests, to see if there were anything preventing sleep; there were not.

    I pressed the two keys which should have put the computer to sleep; the monitor went to sleep, but the computer remained awake, and I could do nothing other than forcing a shutdown and restart. That worked, and using the two keys put the computer and the monitor to sleep. Pressing a key on the keyboard woke both things.

    Any tests, etc., to run to see if the problem can be found and fixed?

    :)
