    and be able to open the sleeping program and find it in the same state as before sleep.

    Hi,

    This may happen due to its power plan. A power plan is a collection of hardware and system settings that manages how computers use and conserve power. For this, we suggest that you reset and restore power plans to its default. kindly follow these steps:

    • Open the Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Copy and paste the command below into the command prompt, and press
      Enter
      :
      • powercfg -restoredefaultschemes
    • Close the Command Prompt window, and then restart your PC to apply the changes.

    After that, go to Power & sleep settings
    by typing it into the Windows Search. Check the When plugged in, PC goes to sleep after
    settings is set to Never.

    Manually put a program to sleep WITHOUT making PC sleep?

    My computer's "Sleep after X" sleep is deeper than manual sleep

    With Sleep after X minutes, all fans shut down. A mouse click or key press is required to wake the system. This is ideal.

    When I manually sleep via the start menu, fans stay on and mouse movement wakes the system.

    powercfg -a lists this:

    Standby (S3)

    Hibernate

    Fast Startup

    Automatic hibernation is off, only sleep is on in power settings.

    I'm on 16299

    So, my question is, how do I manually put my computer into this deeper sleep state?
