    Sleep setting removed from Windows


    I used to be able to put my computer to sleep but suddenly the setting has been completely removed.


    What I have already done:

    I checked the power options and it is missing from there as well.

    I made sure that showing the sleep option was enabled in the group policy editor.

    I changed CsEnabled to 1 in regedit.

    I ran powercfg /a and for some reason, it says that the computer doesn't support sleep even though it did a few days ago.

    I both rolled back and updated my graphics card, even with a clean driver installation, to no avail.


    How do I bring my sleep option back?

    :)

    Sleep setting removed from Windows

    After Windows 10 Anniversary Update Computer Not Sleeping

    Hello.

    Does disabling the HID-Complaint Touch Screen driver resolves the issue? If yes, we suggest that you disable it and see if your device go into Sleep mode after a period of inactivity.

    We also suggest to check if the settings of the Power Options of your device are set so that the device will go into Sleep mode after a period of time. You may follow the steps below to check is Sleep mode is enabled on your device:

    • Press the Windows button + X, then click on
      Power Options.
    • Click Change when the computer
      sleeps.
    • Change the settings to your preferred settings.

    Keep us updated on the results.

    Regards.
