    Windows 10 Won't Stay Asleep

    Looks like there's an incompatibility with the drivers and the Creators update that you're using right now. May we suggest going back to your previous system build for now as it the only workaround we have for the issue right now. To do this, follow the
    steps below:

    • Open Settings window.
    • Click Update and Security, Recovery.
    • Select Get Started, under Go back.

    Thanks @Hydrate! Followed Step 3 of Option 2 and rebooted ... problem solved!

    I'll keep an eye on it for the next couple of days and if all stays good, I will mark this thread closed.
