  2. W10 Start menu always up on waking from sleep

    Every time my computer wakes up from sleeping, the start menu is showing, which is really annoying. How can I make it stop?

  3. W10 Start menu always up on waking from sleep

    The Question is "W10 Start Menu always up upon waking from sleep"

    As someone else said: "Every time my computer wakes up from sleeping, the start menu is showing, which is really
    annoying."

    GearWorld's reply doesn't address the issue at all.

    Is there an answer or is Windows 10 incapable of that simple behavior?

    Did you ever figure out how to stop this? Started happening to me last month and is annoying. I can't find a setting anywhere.

  5. If you lock the device fast enough you can prevent the start menu from showing up.
    Click on lock and quickly click any where else on the screen, there it goes. Unlock again and there ain't no start menu.

    Or use Alt+F4 for the purpose, That will solve that out.

    #The start menu is kinda cool though. *Biggrin

    You could try enabling 'Go to the desktop instead of Start when signing in' in gpedit.msc to see if it helps.

    gpedit.msc/User Configuration/StartMenu and Taskbar/Go to the desktop......
    double click 'Go to the desktop......./Enable/Apply/OK/Restart

    Thanks, but it isn't tablet mode with a screen of tiles that I am referring to. It's desktop mode, with the start menu popped up upon waking up. Making sense?

    This didn't fix the problem. Anyone have a fix for the start menu still open after sleep once you click the Power/sleep icon?

    Apologies for necro'ing this thread, but here's a solution which works for me.

    Grab the PsShutdown utility from Microsoft here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...sshutdown.aspx

    Create a shortcut to it (on your desktop or in your Start Menu in C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs), and add two command line parameters so that the shortcut target now looks something like:
    Code: "C:\Program Files\psshutdown.exe" -d -t 0[/quote] Running the shortcut will put your PC to sleep, and upon wakeup the Start Menu will not be displayed.

    I would prefer a simpler fix.

    I still have this problem too.

    How to stop Start menu showing when waking up computer?

    Having just seen this thread, I'm also necroposting just to say that the Start menu pops up upon waking from Sleep if you used the Start menu to put it to Sleep in the first place. The reason for this is that Windows always wakes to the exact same state it was in before sleeping, so in such a situation that "previous state" was one which had the Start menu open (because you opened it to put it to Sleep).

    I don't think this was the behaviour in previous versions of Windows. One would have assumed that the mere clicking on Sleep would be enough to officially close the Start menu.

    Several users have already submitted this issue on the Windows Feedback app.

    It is a little bit of an annoyance, when coming out of sleep to see the start menu open. What I do, is right click on the start menu button, when I decide to put the computer to sleep,... and select " Shut down or sign out", and then choose sleep from there. You won't have that start menu there, after coming out of sleep.

    As posted before you can create a shortcut by right click the desktop then select New then Shortcut. Then paste this into it.
    C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep

    I also like the Sleep in my Context menu by creating a registry file from a Notepad file. Paste the below in a notepad then rename the extention from .txt to .reg


    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Sleep]
    @="**Go to Sleep**"
    "Icon"=""
    "Position"="Middle"


    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Sleep\Command]
    @="rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0"
