    Wake from sleep desktop icons and taskbar completely scrambled and unresponsive


    Hello,I have recently been encountering an issue, where often after my laptop goes to sleep mode and then wakes all the desktop icons and taskbar completely glitch out and look scrambled and nothing is functional. Also any background image turns black. Strangely enough if I right click with my mouse anywhere on the desktop after 5-10sec or so everything resets to normal. It is becoming quite annoying, any ideas why that might be happening or have encountered the issue and know a fix?

    :)

  2. wake from sleep issue in windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your reply. Apologize for the delay in response.

    I suggest you to check which devices are configured to wake up the computer from sleep by following the steps below:

    • Right click on Start icon and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type the command line below:
    Powercfg /devicequery wake_armed

    3. Check if the devices (Keyboard, Mouse, Ethernet cable) are listed.

    If the system is not going to sleep and going to Hybernate, the only option to wake up is to press the Power button.

    Hope the information is helpful.

    System Icons on taskbar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    Are you referring to the clock system icon on the taskbar?

    If so, I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:


    • Click on the search bar on the taskbar.

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.

    Hope it helps.

    Wake from sleep desktop icons and taskbar completely scrambled and unresponsive

    Desktop icons rearranging after coming out of Sleep on Windows 10

    Old title: desktop icons rearranging

    My desktop icons keep rearranging every time my computer wakes up after sleep mode when connected to my monitor.

    I have an XPS13 which is connected to a monitor using the dell 1 in 4 adaptor (USB 3.0 to HDMI/VGA/Ethernet/USB 2.0). I think whenever the laptop wakes up, it has to reconnected to my monitor. When that happens it always scrambles my desktop icons. However,
    I do not have Auto Arranged Icons selected. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Please help!
