    Windows 10 restarts when I ask it to sleep


    This causes loss of data. I see thousands of similar questions around the net, but after searching,

    I did not come up with a definite solution, tho I tried many. This is an old problem..

    Some dates go back to 2015. Hasn't this been fixed yet?

    One clue is the last time it happened, when I went to the power icon in the lower left corner, the 3 choices were:



    Sleep

    Update, then shutdown

    Update, then restart.


    I chose sleep, but it apparently did one of the other items.

    Next time, the 3 choices were the same, but the "update" word was omitted.


    In the control panel, I see that "Auto" is off in the update area. The system is ignoring

    that setting.


    Isn't there a way to set it up so the system asks first, instead of updating automatically?

    :)

    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

    Windows 10 restarts when I ask it to sleep

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    I really hate having to come here and ask for help, but I really am stumped. It hurts my geek pride. I have a PC with fairly modern hardware in it. It has a p8p67 pro in it. I have tried upgrading windows 10 on it twice now. Both times I have had the same result.

    After windows finishes upgrading it goes to the log in/set up screen. I can't do anything. No keyboard or mouse input is accepted.

    I will list some, or hopefully all, of the troubleshooting steps I have tried:
    • Move keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
    • Try different keyboard or mouse.
    • Restart computer, repeatedly.
    • Google for related issues.
    • Update Bios, because why not.
    • Create boot media and revert to windows 7.
    The windows 10 system restore boot media works fine with keyboard and mouse. All USB ports work in windows 7. I don't know what is wrong. I suspect that windows 10 is lacking a driver of some sort, but since the computer accepts no input I have no way of checking for which driver let alone installing it.

    Please help me figure this out. If I have to revert back to windows 7 again, I am not going to get it upgraded to windows 10. Thank you in advanced.
