    My new computer has insomnia


    I just got a new HP Z2 Mini G4 computer. Everything works fine so far except when I shut it down. The power light turns off and then about a minute later, it turns back on and the system restarts. I checked the network adapters and turned off "Wake on Lan". I have turned off "Fast Startup" as well. I saw no strange messages in the Event Log. The BIOS version is only one short of the latest. The latest one only referred to updates to add support for Linux BIOS tools. I am at a loss as to what may be causing it to reboot.

    Insomnia


    Computer suffers from insomnia.
    Computer (Desktop, Win 10 Pro) will not go to sleep although i did change the settings on the power profiles, used various power profiles, created a new one etc... Also the screen will not suspend ever after the given time of non-use.

    The only way to make it go to sleep is via a self created link : %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0.
    This works just fine.
    But going to sleep when there is no activity... no joy.
    Looked through the forums and already tried everything i could find, no joy either.

    All idea's welcome...

    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.

    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
