    Upgraded to windows 11, now my computer freezes instead of going to sleep


    I just upgraded to windows 11 using windows update. Now when the sleep timer hits the power light on the computer stays on, but it freezes and/or the monitor never comes back on at all. It didn't do this with windows 10. I've already checked my display driver, looked at the power, mouse, and keyboard settings, ran all the window updates, turned off hybrid sleep, fast startup, and wake timers, and ran chkdsk, sfc, and DISM. Any other ideas?

    :)

  2. Computer shuts down instead of going to sleep or hibernate

    Good afternoon,

    My pc shuts down instead of going to sleep. When I press the on/off button, the sleepbutton, close the lid, or click on 'sleep' in the startmenu, my computer "pretends" going to sleep: the ledlight on the case is blinking, as if the system is sleeping.

    But, when I want to wake up the computer, it does not wake up, but it restarts. All applications are closed, unsaved work is vanished, et cetera...

    The problem is there: 'fast boot' enabeled or not.

    The problem has arrived just a couple of days ago, just after a windows upgrade

    (which it does without my approval)

    What I have already tried (and failed):


    Who will help me?

    Sincerely,

    Brecht

    System configuration:

    Asus N551jk

    Intel Core I7

    Gefore GTX 850m

    Windows 10

  3. Windows 11 does not go to sleep

    My Windows 11 desktop does not turn off the screen after the specified time. It also does not go into sleep mode after the specified time. I have tried all the steps suggested in this thread and still not good. I do not have any joy stick or anything like that attached. It used to work that a few months ago it quit. The only thing that happened was routine Windows updates.

    Computer stopped going into sleep mode

    Hello, Kiran.

    My computer is up to date and I didn't change any settings prior or after the update

    I tried step one, but I haven't wait the time required for the computer to go into sleep mode. I did change the 30 minute wait to 10 minutes. So, I'll wait and see what happens
