    PC awakes from sleep and in 1-2 sec. powers back off.....


    At WAKEUP from SLEEP, flashing power LED will go solid green , fans will spring to life for approx. 1-2 sec. and then immediately power OFF. Mouse, keyboard, power and reset buttons have no effect. Only option is to switch off power strip for a second or so and then reboot. The sleep issue came up only after I recently upgraded my motherboard from a Gigabyte GA-MA78-DS3H (DDR2) to an ASUS M4A87TD-EVO (DDR3). I used my same hardware and only the motherboard and memory were changed. It was a rather smooth transition except for the sleep issue. I will just say, I have tried and tested every fix I could find and will attempt to list them at the end of this post along with my hardware. First thought maybe a power supply problem but seem to eliminate that as hibernate works well, just not my first choice.

    Hardware:
    ... HD with all updates Win 10 Pro Ver.1809 Build 17763.195
    ... Processor AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black edition 3.2GHz
    ... 8GB of 1333MHz Samsung RAM
    ... NEW 400 watt ATX power supply
    ... NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050ti GPU
    Software envirenment:
    ... Windows Defender and firewall only
    ... Newest chipset drivers for Win10 from AMD site ( no Win10 at ASUS site)
    ... Newest graphics driver from NVIDIA site (clean install) … tried others as well
    ... Newest bios with "suspend mode" set to AUTO (tried S1 and S3 also)
    What I have tried:
    ... RAN sfc /scannow and found nothing
    ... RAN Windows "power" troubleshooter
    ... Tested my memory modules
    ... disabled FastStart
    ... tried both "balanced" and "preformance" power plans
    ... tried "restore plan defaults"
    ... both mouse and keyboard set to "allow this device to wake computer"
    Advanced Power Options:
    ... turn off harddrive (0) never
    ... sleep after (10)
    ... allow hybrid sleep (no)
    ... allow wake timers (enable)
    Have I missed anything ??
    And just about every other combination for SLEEP. With sleep disabled and hybrid sleep enabled it will hibernate just fine so that should eliminate power supply problems. Also the event viewer shows nothing short of a few"Event ID 10016" errors. The reboot will showup as an "event 41, Kernel Power" (the system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down) but thats about it. I`m willing to try about anything short of a fresh install unless I have to. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    :)

  3. Windows 10 sleep

    I'd already tried using default power settings - no change.

    As you suggested I created a test user account, that also fails to awake from sleep..

    Thanks for your advice, any suggestions for next steps?

    awaking from sleep

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I can imagine the inconvenience you are experiencing and will certainly help you in the right direction to fix the issue.

    As per the issue description you are facing issue with power options in Windows 8.1.
    This could be an issue with the corrupt power plan settings. This issue might also occur due to outdated display driver or some other devices are responsible to keep it awake.



    Try the below mentioned methods and see if it works for you.

    Method 1

    Try to run Power Troubleshooter which is built troubleshooter and you may follow the steps mentioned below to run it.

    • Press the Windows key and
      X at the same time.
    • Now click on Control panel.
    • In the search box of Control Panel type
      Troubleshooter, and select troubleshooting among the list.
    • Under System and Security, click
      Improve power usage.
    • Now try to run the troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Note: If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    Method 2

    If issue persists I would suggest you to Reset and restore the power plans to default.

    • Press Windows key and
      X at the same time.
    • Choose Command Prompt (Admin) from the context menu.
    • In the command prompt, type powercfg –restoredefaultschemes
      and hit Enter.
    • Exit command prompt.

    Note: This would reset the power plan settings to default. Any customized power plans would be removed.

    Method 3:

    If that does not help, delete the power plan and create a new power plan and check.

    Please follow these steps to change the power plans:

    a) Press Windows
    Key
    +X key together.

    b) Select Control Panel. Select
    Power Option.

    c) From the left hand side panel select Create
    a Power Plan
    .

    You can refer to the following link.

    Note: The article is for Windows 8/8.1 but steps holds good for Windows 10 too.

    Hope this would help. If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of the proposed suggestion, we will be happy to assist you.
