    Yet another W10 sleep bug

    My daughters HP laptop had sleep issues when W10 came out but one of the W10 updates fixed it.

    It recently started having sleep problems - One of the W10 updates most likely broke it again. (currently running 14393.479)

    I noticed that if you turn the laptop ON, don't log onto any of the accounts, and let it sit, it will go to sleep as expected.
    However, if you are logged onto an account, it will never sleep when it remains idle. The LCD will turn off, but it won't sleep.

    I checked the advanced multimedia power settings and they are OK. I tried turning fast start off but that didn't help.

    Any other ideas what might be happening here?

    Pressing the power button will force it to enter sleep mode.

    How do move around buttons on Favorites bar?

    I can pick up the favorites on the bar, but not the overflow items on the drop down at the end! Another stupid W10 bug!

    I am yet another W10 user with the same problem as most others, it is running very slowly, hangs, endless clicking of mouse and nothing happening, etc., etc. I purchased a new Lenovo desktop last Saturday 8th August with W8.1 OS and immediately upgraded
    to W10.

    I work online but have been reluctant to access this using W10 because of the problems.

    I have only been using 1 email account and a couple of websites so far, no documents, images, etc. I've tried Troubleshooting and no problem can be found.

    How long before the bugs are ironed out and W10 actually works, or it simply better to revert to 8.1?

    I would appreciate an response from a Microsoft support.

  4. Yet another W10 sleep bug

    First off I would restore the power plan defaults and reboot. Then change settings and see if this corrects.

    I would then look to see what is running in the background, app or program, potential preventing sleep when logged into your daughters account. I would try a clean boot. See Brink's tutorial here

    You didn't mention in steps you have done so it might be worth scanning with Malwarebytes from

    Well thanks for all the suggestions. I tinkered around with the laptop while watching football yesterday...checked all the settings and rebooted many times. Still refused to sleep.

    I then decided to re-install W10 keeping personal files. It now goes to sleep perfectly fine with the latest updates so who knows what was corrupt in the operating system.

    W10 certainly isn't as robust as W7 or XP was...

    The problem returned about 24 hours after doing the reinstall.....

    Back to the drawing board...
