    Sleeping and Hibernating with Issues and Erratic Behaviour

    All or any of the following situations can happened when I try to put my computer either in sleep or hibernate mode.

    • The computer seldom enters and stays in sleeping or hibernate mode until I awake it;
    • The computer enters in sleeping or hibernate, stays for from a few seconds to a few minutes, more frequently for a shorter time. Then, it awakes by itself.
    • The computer follows its way to sleep or hibernate (I can check by the way its lights flicker), but as soon as it gets to the end of de process, it awakes immediately (at this point, on hibernation, it also flickers the DVD light). This is the most frequent.

    I scanned the file system sfc /scannow. On the first time it repaired some files, but not all. On the second pass the result was only Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. The log is here attached.

    Then, I looked for sleeping anomalies using powercfg /SystemSleepDiagnostics. The log is also attached here.

    All power related settings for sleep or hibernation respect the separation of at least one minute or more.

    I am unable to repair whatever is wrong and should be very grateful for any help. This is a less than 3-week installation and I am not very used to tie OS. I Installed Win 10 a few years ago, but didnt like it and run back to Win 7. Now I am here again, and these issues started before 2 weeks after the installation.

    There is also something strange with the mouse, but it is probably on itself: It is set for not awaking the computer, nut it does. So, before I put the computer to sleep I have to turn it off.

    Windows Pro version 1909 (OS Build 18363.1110).

    Hibernating laptop changes to sleep behaviour after Windows 10 May 2019 update

    Hi Aditya,

    Thank you for your reply. I have tried the two steps (turning of Hybrid sleep and Fast startup) you suggested but to no avail. Okay, for your two questions:

    1. My laptop is a HP Pavilion 14-bf101tx, and currently running Windows 10 1903 (upgrading from 1809).
    2. Nope. No error messages. I suppose the boot process was successful, however, my battery was reduced. That's why I suggest the post title as "Hibernating changes to sleep behaviour" because the battery level reduction looks like sleep behaviour.

    Please inform me of any diagnostics information you might need. Thank you for your kind assistance.

  3. Surface Pro 3 - Erratic cursor and window behaviour

    I experience intermittent erratic cursor behaviour on my Surface Pro 3. Any open windows also reduce in size and expand again. I keep the computer updated and have switched locations to avoid any external interference.

    I've read various reports on Touchscreen drives and updates etc but nothing seems to cure this erratic behaviour. Any suggestions?

    Hibernation and Sleep not working on my WIndows 10 PC after latest update


    There are many possible reasons for this hibernation and sleep not working issue. The most common causes are
    corrupted Power settings or outdated display drivers. In order for us to efficiently assist you with your concern regarding the issue of waking up from sleep/hibernation, we just have a few questions for you:

    • Have you made any recent changes to your computer prior to the issue?
    • Did you get any error messages upon waking up your computer from hibernation/sleep?
    • Have you also tried performing the power troubleshooter?
    If you still haven't, we suggest trying the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + W and type Troubleshooting.
    • Select Troubleshooting and click on System and Security.
    • Click on Power and follow the onscreen steps.

    Delete the current power plan and create it again.

    We're looking forward to your reply.
