  1. Sleep and Hibernate Ignored

    Starting about a week ago my Win 10 system doesn't sleep or hibernate as I request. Although it appears to be OK when I click on "Sleep" or "Hibernate" when I leave the office, when I return a few hours later it only resumes with a restart. In the past they both worked fine, but now I essentially reboot my machine every time I let it idle for more than a 30 minutes.

    Any thoughts? (I did reset all the power options to "default" but no luck)

    Sleep,hibernate, and shutdown


    Usually, Sleep and Hibernate features are used to save power when using a computer. However, hibernate may not be available for all PCs as it was designed for laptops. Regarding your concern, since you’re trying to turn
    off or disable these features, you may follow the step below:

    • To turn off Sleep:

      Go to Settings > System > Power & sleep. Then, select
      Never from the drop-down list under the Sleep section.

    • Right-click on it, then select Run as administrator.

    sleep or hibernate

    I think you have sleep and hibernate confused... sleep just puts the computer in a low power state, making resuming the session faster... hibernate shuts down the whole computer and basically just saves whats in RAM to the hdd and loads it on next startup. IIRC...
