  1. Intermittent Issue | Sleep Mode Freezing PC


    Hi all!

    I've been having this issue since updating to Version 1903. Entering sleep mode sometimes causes the pc to hang. A few times when this happens the fans start running at full blast.

    I tried all the following:

    - Updating BIOS;
    - Updating Graphics Driver;
    - Turning Power Management off in Intel MEI Device Settings;
    - Updating Intel MEI Drivers and Firmware, Updating Intel Chipset Drivers;
    - Turn off Hibernation mode; erasing hybersys.fil; consequently turning Hybrid Sleep off;
    - Running Power Troubleshooting, which simply applies a default 'Balanced' plan;
    - Selectively turned off high-CPU intensive services and the ones not needed on a Desktop PC;
    - Running a complete scan with MalwareBytes as well as Windows Defender to exclude malware/cryptominer;
    - Checking Event Viewer for Warnings and Errors related to system sleep/shut-down, and noticed that nothing is created past the 'hanging' point (trying to keep the screen on when sleep is supposed to start shows a frozen mouse pointer and an unresponsive system!);
    - Finally, reset the whole system to factory mode, and reinstalled Windows 10 v1903.

    Nothing has worked. I'm now tempted to call an exorcist, but before I light a few candles and dip my keyboard in holy water I'd like you experts to give this issue a shot. Internet is full with v1903 Sleep/Hibernation issues and I'm sure this version of Windows is to blame, but I wonder why is the issue intermittent and how can I find the culprit, since it's now becoming worse than a long - and boring! - game of Cluedo.

    Thank you in advance for your kind help! ^___^

    PS: It's worth mentioning that doing all of the above solving the PC not fully shutting down about 20% of the time and manual sleep mode freezing the PC every second time it was activated.

    :)
