    Why is my computer waking up from sleep mode?


    When I finish working on my computer and after a certain period of time, it goes to sleep. However, in hibernation it starts cyclically for approximately 10 minutes. Turn on the fan, the screen, ... and the windows login window.

    :)

    No internet when computer wakes from sleep mode

    No Internet when computer wakes from sleep mode or from cold start until I disable the Local area connection and then enable it.

    When I run the diagnostic after it fixes the connection it says this: Local Area connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration - Fixed

    But its not fixed. Every time I wake my computer up from sleep mode after its been in sleep mode for a few hours I have to disable and then enable the Local area connection.

    When the computer wakes up it has a yellow triangle warning of limited or no internet access. So I have to do the above every time I wake it up.

    Things I've done so far: Update drivers, No fix.

    Multiple computers won't wake out of sleep mode/start in sleep mode

    Well I actually have replied, I did all of step 1, and went onto step 2, followed the instructions for installation from another PC from a USB drive. I have Windows on the USB drive and tried to install on the problem computer. I am not sure what the disconnect
    is here. Since I was clear (I thought?) about the problem in my OP, I feel like actually you are the one who did not read what I wrote, especially when you told me to simply restart/wake up the computer.

    So if you cannot help that is fine, and I guess I will have to go elsewhere. I am seeing a lot online about Windows 10 causing this issue and so that is why I am here. It is the one consistent variable with the problem I have had now with two computers back
    to back - they go into sleep mode and will not wake up no matter WHAT I do (yes, I do know how to reboot a computer and wake a computer up out of sleep mode, obviously this isn't about me just needing to "wake up" the computer).

    POST 1: My computer would not boot up, and I tried everything I knew to get it to work to no avail. Got a new computer, everything was fine until - it went into sleep mode and wouldn't wake up. Reboot = sleep mode and won't wake up. All I have is
    a black screen. I've tried switching cables, plugs, monitors. What is going on? I feel like I am going crazy.

    POST 2: I tried the first few steps with no luck. The screen remains black, there is no change/response. I am not sure I will be able to do the next steps such as Windows installation media.



    POST 4: Thank you so much I want to do the installation but I don't have a windows key this is a refurbished computer that I didn't originally buy

    POST 5: I am trying to reinstall Windows with a USB, following the steps, and I cannot get anything on the monitor. It is black and the lights are blinking like it is in sleep mode.
