  1. Windows 10 takes a long time to turn off/go to sleep


    Hi, over the last couple of months, my laptop has started to take a long time to turn off or go to sleep. It takes about three minutes each time I do either action.


    This is not the biggest problem by itself, but since this has happened, the laptop has started to frequently blue screen (page fault in nonpaged area). I don't know if they're related issues or not.


    To fix this issue, I've tried everything I can think of, including system restore, and even a full reset of the laptop back to factory settings.

    I've done checks for the latest drivers, and also done tests of the RAM and SSD and the results say no issues.


    FWIW, the only time the laptop turns off normally is when it's in safe mode.

    Can anyone help with this issue? I'm I looking at a hardware issue rather than software? What ever the issue is, I think it's causing my Laptop to break.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    :)

    Windows 10 PC, issues with sleep and slow boots

    @Mussels Welcome to the most widespread, yet elusive to pin down problem plaguing W10 even with SSD's! (meaning it's not your HDD)

    You can googlebing to your heart's content and try every wild-assed fix out there, but you'll only make a dent in your frustration level.

    What has MOSTLY helped me is turning off hibernation by turning off all sleep and power saving options in Windows, and turning off fast boot by deleting hiberfil through the CMD line (as an admin).

    Now it only hangs on boot or restart 1 out of 5 times. LOL, and I call that progress. I have two steps to take that look like they might be promising.

    I'm going to disable all power saving features in BIOS, and try a new BIOS which was released after W10.

    No one, including M$ has figured it out yet. Some of the speculative fixes you'll find come from their own forums where so-called Windows experts seem to be the most clueless of everyone.

    Anyway, I listed what has helped me somewhat after 4 weeks.

    Windows 10 takes a long time to turn off/go to sleep

    Win7 retains clock from sleep time

    Oh damn, I meant to suggest the following: correct the clock, shut it down (not sleep mode) for an hour or two, then turn it on and go straight into the BIOS, no Windows. Is the time correct?

    From what you've said in your last post, this sounds like a Windows problem, so I'll expect the BIOS time to be correct. This is good, as it's a mere software problem rather than a hardware one. We'll take it from there.

    Good luck and Merry Christmas! *Toast :toast:
