    Power options on my laptop


    Hello to all
    I have a HP255G6 laptop been working good for a while.
    Small problem since Saturday been having an issue with closing the lid and selecting sleep in the power options with no issues until this morning that method had stopped working. Another thing when I left the laptop for a while it would go to sleep when I return I gave the cordless mouse a shake and it would wake the laptop up ready to use.
    I have lost both methods can anyone Please help me out here.Its a bit annoying when I leave then come back maybe 15min later and have to restart it.
    Many Thanks David.*Confused

  4. Power options on my laptop

    sleep mode and power options not working on Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Forums.

    For issues with sleep mode and power options follow the steps provided below.

    Run the Power troubleshooter and check.

    Follow the steps to run the troubleshooter:

    • Open Control Panel.
    • Type Troubleshooting in search and click
      Troubleshooting.
    • Now type Power in the search option.
    • Click on Power troubleshooter to run.

    I would suggest you to try updating the Display driver and check if the issue persists. If you already have all the latest drivers from Windows updates, then I would suggest you to visit the computer manufacturer's website, download and install the latest
    drivers in compatibility mode and check.

    Hope this helps.
