Win 10 issues

Post by CDN_Merlin » Mon Feb 22, 2016 7:28 am

So I have a fresh install of Win 10 since I upgraded my PC in Jan. My problem is it won't go to sleep. This happened after I did the install, then once it update with the SP, it worked. Then it stopped working a wee or so ago. Then I fixed it by disabling Media Streaming services and it would go to sleep like the power profile was setup. Now it has stopped going to sleep again and no matter what I Google, I can't find any NEW information about it.

Any ideas?

So you go Power->Sleep and it does nothing?

fliptw, I believe he's referring to a known issue with sleep timers failing to put the machine to sleep.

I had the same issue with a clean Win10 install as well. As I recall, the problem turned out to be related to a nightly backup service that I was running, but I don't remember any of the details, I'm sorry.

Foil has it. It's just not going to sleep. I've read that it could be related to a USB joystick but haven't tested removing it. Kinda a pain since my stick is connecting at the back of the case and not the front.

I also have 2 external drives plugged via USB, my mouse also.

give "powercfg lastwake" a spin in command prompt, after you try sleeping your computer.

beyond the standard rigamole of bios and driver updates... how fast does your computer boot from cold?

My system normally boots within 10 seconds but I prefer leaving it on. Also, during the day my wife uses it so turning it on/off constantly if a pain. I'll try what you suggest and I may even fiddle more with it to see if I can get it going.
