  1. Sleep function: An issue


    Today I put my pc to sleep and all was well. But, when I went to wake it up, I noticed that my fans were turning, but I was not receiving a post. My fix was hitting the reset switch on my chassis front panel. This defeats the purpose of the sleep function because it just takes me to the pre-boot screen as if the system were shut down.

    Here are my core components:

    AsRock B450M Hdv R4

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600 af 12nm

    Windows 10 Pro

    Any help or suggestions are much appreciated.

  2. Sleep/Hibernation wake-up issue

    Hi Sylnan,

    User profile corruption could be a possible cause why you are experiencing an issue with the sleep function of your device. To isolate your concern, we suggest that you create a test user profile. Check if you will have the same issue with the device if
    it is in sleep mode. This is for us to verify if the issue is isolated with one user profile or with multiple accounts.

    To create a test user profile, follow these steps:

    • Using Cortana search, type Settings and then hit the Enter key.
    • In the Settings window, select Accounts.
    • Select Family & other people.
    • Choose Add someone else to this PC.
    • Click I don't have this person's sign-in information.
    • Click Add a user without a Microsoft account.
    • Name the user as TEST and then provide a password.

    Keep us updated with the result.
