  1. why some programs are still running while my laptop is on sleep mode and consuming...


    Recently I've updated my window 10 and i got notice that while i put my laptop on sleep mode there are still some background programs are running and consuming a lot of power even on ideal mode my ram memory usage is 5gb out of 8 gb, i checked everything and turned down unnecessary program even though memory usage is same, while putting laptop on sleep mode i noticed its power indicator blink slowly indicates sleep mode however after 2-3 min it turned fully on and 3rd light indicator suggest some background activity is on.

    :)

    ASUS Laptop Won't Wake from Sleep Mode

    OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
    Version 10.0.18363 Build 18363
    System Manufacturer ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC.
    System Model UX490UAR
    System Type x64-based PC
    SMBIOS Version 3.0

    Problem: about 80% of the time, my laptop won't wake up from sleep mode via keyboard press or mouse move/click. I seem to be missing many common features in power plan too, even after fresh Windows 10 install.

    Troubleshooting Steps:

    1. Reinstalled Windows 10 (clean)
    2. Updated all drivers
    3. Replicated on multiple Windows 10 versions, updates
    4. BIOS latest version
    5. No USB devices attached, ever. Only USB-C power and bluetooth mouse
    6. Disabled "fast startup" in control panel
