    Windows 10 Desktop unable to enter Sleep


    Recently, my desktop isn't able to enter Sleep. Once I press 'Sleep', the screen will darken, but after a few seconds, it will display the standard lockscreen.

    Trying to enter sleep repeatedly doesn't work.

    Running powercfg -requests after this issue will display 1 result:
    PERFBOOST:[DRIVER] Legacy Kernel CallerPower Manager

    Running powercfg -devicequery wake_armed gives no results as I disabled all of my bluetooth devices which can wake the computer.

    Running powercfg -lastwake will give the following result:
    Wake History Count - 1Wake History [0] Wake Source Count - 1 Wake Source [0] Type: Device Instance Path: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_15BC&SUBSYS_15BC1849&REV_10\3&11583659&0&FE Friendly Name: Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V Description: Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V Manufacturer: Intel Corporation

    Which is weird. I do not have a Ethernet cable connected to the LAN port and even after disabling the wired adapter, it still shows up.

    Any guidance to resolve this issue is greatly appreciated! Cheers Windows 10 Desktop unable to enter Sleep :)

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. Desktop will not go to sleep using Win 10

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience that you are unable to make your laptop sleep completely. We will help you to resolve this issue.

    Please let us know with the model of NVIDIA graphic card you are using.

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to boot the computer in safe mode and then try shutting down the computer.

    If the issue still persists, follow the below steps:

    Step 1: Check if the NVIDIA graphics card is detected in device manager. If it is detected, update it's drivers and check if that helps.

    • Right click on the Start button from the desktop and select Device Manager.
    • In the list of Hardware categories, double-click the category your device is in and then double-tap the device you want. For example, to see your video card, click
      Display adapters, and then double-click the video card name.
    • Click the Driver tab, click Update Driver, and then follow the instructions. You might be asked for an admin password or to confirm your choice.

    Step 2: If that does not fix the issue, please reinstall the display adapter drivers.

    • Right click on the Start button from the desktop and select Device Manager.
    • Locate and expand Display adapter.
    • Right-click on the Display adapter that is listed and click “Uninstall”.

    Restart the computer and download, install the latest drivers from the NVIDIA website.

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with updated status of the issue to assist you further.
