  1. Quick Question on sleep mode and power outage


    So i usually put my PC to sleep more often than turn it off (this has caused me no end of problems when windows wakes up my bloody machine to try and install/download updates) anyway sometimes i have had power outages while its in sleep mode and im sleeping myself. Question is how does the PC still wake up to where i was if theres a power outage? Wouldnt RAM lose the session? Whats the option that enables/changes this setting?

    This is on any version of windows 10 I've used.

    :)

  2. 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.
