  1. Mysterious behaviour of BITS downloading something.

    So since almost 2 weeks, BITS is downloading something. Every apps in store is up to date, so as windows update. BTW I'm on version 1909 (Although 2004 update is visible in the WU page). Office is also up to date. I am wondering, if everything is up to date, then what the hell is even being downloaded? Is there any method to know what app is trying to download through BITS? Though the bandwidth its using is between 64-120 KBps and I have LTE limited data pack on daily basis.

    Also if I turn on metered connection, it stops downloading. Running BITS troubleshooter also stops downloading for 24 hours (or whenever it likes).

    I could get this over just by turning on metered connection but this should not happen on idle when there is no update to perform.

    Hibernating laptop changes to sleep behaviour after Windows 10 May 2019 update

    Hi Aditya,

    Thank you for your reply. I have tried the two steps (turning of Hybrid sleep and Fast startup) you suggested but to no avail. Okay, for your two questions:

    1. My laptop is a HP Pavilion 14-bf101tx, and currently running Windows 10 1903 (upgrading from 1809).
    2. Nope. No error messages. I suppose the boot process was successful, however, my battery was reduced. That's why I suggest the post title as "Hibernating changes to sleep behaviour" because the battery level reduction looks like sleep behaviour.

    Please inform me of any diagnostics information you might need. Thank you for your kind assistance.

    Mysterious behaviour of BITS downloading something.

    New here and seeking for help: problems with graphic card

    Thanks very much lilhasselhoffer. I'll start doing what you suggested step by step.

    One question thou: you suggested me to Download the latest driver package from Nvidea. However, the link you posted is for the newly released GeForce GTX 760? Am I supposed to download the drivers for that card?

    Sorry for my questions. As I said, I'm not an expert at all.
