    Need to troubleshoot Sleep not working after midnight Windows Update..


    I am having my laptop not go to sleep after performing a Windows Update at midnight. In addition, the morning after, I find the laptop running, but when I open the lid, the screen remains black. I have to do a 'hold the power button' shutdown and reboot.

    I have done a bunch of troubleshoot with the help of @zbook, and have not identified any hardware errors. I have come to the opinion that the problem is the laptop not going to sleep after the updates, but I don't know why the freeze at a black screen.

    So, opening a new thread on the topic of troubleshoot sleep issues. Zbook recommended I perform:

    Here is the screen from running those tests:

    Attending report filse attached in a zip. I noticed that two of the commands put the results in the same report (sleepstudy-report), so, maybe the first was overwritten by the second...?

    I have to leave now, but will re-run those two and save each file separate and post back.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 - Sleep Works But Only if 5 Minutes or Less

    What about the Troubleshooting tutorial steps here:

    https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/fix-windows-10-sl...

    I've never seen at least one them not be successful.

    I had suggested first to set Display at 0, Sleep at 1 minute and Hibernate at 2 minutes and then after each step sit back to observe. I have rarely had to work all the way through the list.

    Absolute thoroughness is required when troubleshooting Sleep, skipping nothing and asking back if you need any help to complete a step. We often find out later that the fix was the skipped step, so please do not skip any. If you need help performing any step
    I will help.

  3. Hibernation and Sleep not working on my WIndows 10 PC after latest update

    Hello,

    There are many possible reasons for this hibernation and sleep not working issue. The most common causes are
    corrupted Power settings or outdated display drivers. In order for us to efficiently assist you with your concern regarding the issue of waking up from sleep/hibernation, we just have a few questions for you:

    • Have you made any recent changes to your computer prior to the issue?
    • Did you get any error messages upon waking up your computer from hibernation/sleep?
    • Have you also tried performing the power troubleshooter?
    If you still haven't, we suggest trying the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + W and type Troubleshooting.
    • Select Troubleshooting and click on System and Security.
    • Click on Power and follow the onscreen steps.

    Delete the current power plan and create it again.

    We're looking forward to your reply.

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
