  3. windows 10 PC will not go to sleep and the screen saver will not work, just after latest windows 10 update


    Corruption within the Power settings is one of the possible reasons why you are encountering issues with the Screen Saver feature and Sleep mode in Windows 10. To address the issue, we suggest running the Power troubleshooter by following the steps below:

    • From the Cortana search box, type Troubleshooting and select it on the results.
    • Click on System and Security.
    • Click on Power and follow the on-screen instructions.

    Once done with the steps, let us know how it goes so we can assist you further.

  4. windows 10 grey screen after sleep

    Logon screen keeps on appearing after waking up the computer from sleep - Windows 10


    This is actually the first thing we tried. The computer comes up with a message saying:

    "Authentication is required when this PC wakes from sleep. To change this go to setttings and search for Power and Sleep."

    The dropdown box underneath is greyed out, and inactive.

    Going to Power and Sleep leads to your first suggestion, which is a dead end.
