Computer Shuts Down Instead Of Sleeping

Feb 19, 2016

So, as the title says, my computer has recently stopped sleeping completely. When I press the sleep key or tell it to sleep through the start menu it just shuts down. The screen fades like it's sleeping but when I turn it back on it has to go through the entire boot sequence and my session is unsaved.

Can't Stop From Waking My Computer While Sleeping

Dec 22, 2015

I upgraded from windows 7 to Windows 10 Home 64-bit; this was never an issue on Windows 7. Basically I cannot find a way to keep my desktop in sleep mode. Multiple times it has turned on in the middle of the night, and pretty much every time I leave for the weekend I come back to find it turned on.Windows updates seem to be the issue, but lately I haven't been able to confirm this (though the notification always seems to be there when I login). I get the following when I try lastwake.My guess is that there are no details because I have Windows notify me instead of automatically updating.

I also have wake timers disabled.I thought maybe my mouse or keyboard could be the issue (though I've never had a problem with them in the past). I disabled HID-Compliant Mouse from device manager.And I unchecked the box which allows my mouse to wake my computer. After testing it out, this appears to have had no effect as my mouse can still wake the computer when I click it.

BSOD :: Computer Does Not Wake Up From Sleeping Since Upgrade

Aug 10, 2015

Since I upgraded to Windows 10, when my computer sleeps, it does not wake up. It does not respond to any of the keys and no response from the power button either. I have to remove the battery to get it restarted. If I barely move away from the computer, by the time I get back, same thing happens.

Sleep Just Shuts Down Computer?

Jan 19, 2016

After I upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, my sleep feature quit working properly. There was a point in time a couple months back it did work, but since I hardly use it I didn't notice a problem. Recently I decided I'd start using it, and that's when I noticed the problem. When I go to sleep mode, it goes to sleep, but than when I bring it out of sleep mode it just restarts. I don't get any kind of error message at all, and as far as I can tell my power settings are set right. One suggestion I found suggested to revert my driver for Intel Management Engine Interface from version 10 or 11 to 9.5. I just reformat my hard drive and start over. I'm trying to avoid that at all costs. I see suggestions on the settings in BIOS. Which settings in particular should I look to change?

Computer Shuts Down By Itself After Free Upgrade

Sep 28, 2015

I used to run Windows 7, 64 bit. Then I took the free upgrade to Windows 10. It took me 3 or 4 attempts to get it to download and install.

Now my computer shuts itself down when it thinks I am away from it. My husband and I run a law office out of our home, and I cannot babysit the computer all day. I need it to stay on until I turn it off.

Here are my power settings:

Turn off display - 20 hours and 10 minutes
Turn off hard disk - 2340 minutes (39 hours)
Sleep - never
Power button - do nothing

But it ignores me. It still turns off my computer all by itself if I am not there giving it constant keystrokes or mouse clicks. Totally unacceptable. If I can't fix this by the 5th, I am going back to 7.

Then I was counseled to o to the ControlPanel/Power Options On the left side, click ‘Choose what the Power button does’, un-check ‘Turn on fast startup’ and save my changes. But that did not work either - it still shut itself down the minute my back was turned. It seems I am not the only one with this problem.

Computer (Overclocked) Randomly Shuts Down Out Of Nowhere

Nov 14, 2015

A few days ago, I decided to overclock my PC. It froze a bunch, then gave a ton of random shut downs. I tried replacing the power supply, and the video card. it was good for a day, then fried the motherboard.

So I went out, bought a new case. New motherboard, new processor, new video card, new power supply, new liquid cooling, new monitor and keyboard and mouse. I ran all the cables neatly.

The only thing I reused is the memory, SSD HD, backup 1tb hard drive, and cd rom drive. Installed everything, and have been playing fallout 4 all day.

10 minutes ago, same exact thing. PC shuts down out of nowhere. I check the event log, not a single notice. I am at a COMPLETE loss for words now. I have a moster power surge protector, but I dont know that it has anything to do with it. I did plug the PC right into the wall.

I am a loss for words. Im now down $1500, an I d i feel like it was for nothing now.

Computer Shuts Down In Sleep Mode

Jan 26, 2016

My computer (an Asus Republic of Gamers) shuts down when in sleep mode. More precisely, I put it in sleep mode (in 1-2 seconds), but when I open the lid or press a key on the keyboard to wake it up, it starts from scratch, as if I had shut it down.
I tried deactivating Intel Management Engine Interface in the Device Manager as I saw it could be a reason for my problem, but it doesn't solve it. I reinstalled Windows from scratch (from a USB key) and the problem is still there.
I only have the computer for less than a month and I think it worked fine at the beginning.

Computer Shuts Down But Does Not Restart Properly

Dec 31, 2015

I just built a new pc. Specs are Asus Z87-Pro Motherboard, Intel i7 4790k, 16gb RAM, 3T seagate HD. Everything has been performing well on my computer except for when it needs to restart. When I go into windows and click shutdown it has no problem but when I click restart it will exit windows and turn off the display but the computer will remain running and will not boot back up.

I have to manually press the power button to turn it off and then press it again to boot it back up. This also happens when it needs to restart from other programs. From what I have found is it may have to be something with bios versions or settings but I honestly have no clue. I have the most recent bios update for my mobo and I haven't found any settings that would fix this in my bios either.

Gaming :: Computer Shuts Down Whilst Playing Solitaire

Oct 29, 2015

I loved playing Solitaire in Win 7 but having an unusual problem playing the Solitaire app in Win 10. After about 15 minutes, the computer just shuts down. No warning, no error messages, no BSOD, nothing.

I can guarantee you it is not just a coincidence. My computer could be running for days without any problem but as soon as I start playing Solitaire this happens.

When Play League Of Legends Computer Says (Input Not Supported) Or (No Signal) And Then Shuts Down

Aug 3, 2015

I upgraded to Windows 10 yesterday, and at first, everything was fine, but when I play league of legends, randomly, my computer just says "input not supported" or "no signal" or sometimes nothing at all, and then shuts down. This never happened before I upgraded to Windows 10. I went back to Windows 8.1, but it still shuts down in the middle of league games. Again, never happened before going to Windows 10. Is it my GPU? or CPU? or PSU?

CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Corsair H105 73.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Motherboard: MSI Z97-G55 SLI ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory
Storage: Intel 530 Series 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 970 4GB STRIX Video Card
PSU: Corsair CX 600W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

Also, the SSD is my boot drive and has league on it, it has only about 35GB out of 240GB left.

Can't Stop PC From Sleeping

Dec 14, 2015

I'm on the latest Insider build. I don't want my PC to sleep nor the monitors to sleep nor the hard drives. Unlike most other issues with sleep and Win10, my problem isn't waking it up but keeping it awake.

Microsoft seem to have scattered the sleep options all over the place. I methodically worked my way round, starting in Settings where I can quite simply select no sleep for both the computer and the monitors. Simple? Nope. I found relevant settings in these places:

Right click desktop and choose display settings
Also from display settings choose advance power settings
Control Panel Power Settings
Change Plan settings

Maybe these are all links to the same settings but in any event whichever route I take, the PC still sleeps or the monitors still turn off or both. Or the screen saver kicks in.

I wonder if the UEFI bios is over-riding Windows? God knows but how can I keep my PC awake overnight

Wants Password After Sleeping

Feb 7, 2016

I have no microsoft password, and the box which comes up when running netplwiz is UNCHECKED, but if I leave my computer for a while, and then try to begin again, it often demands a password, and the only thing I can do is restart. I would like to avoid this mid-session demanding of a password.

Intermittently Not Sleeping Automatically?

Aug 10, 2015

My power scheme is set to lock the screen after 4 minutes, turn display off after 5, sleep (S3) after 10 (hybrid sleep disabled). Auto-sleep usually works a few times after reboot, but then fails: no screen lock, no display off, no sleep. No new apps have been launched in the meantime. Then, perhaps an hour later, auto-sleep starts to work again for a few times, then fails again. (Manually suspending or resuming the PC always works properly.)

Powercfg /requests consistently lists nothing in any category. Powercfg /lastwake just shows the keyboard activity that I used to wake the computer from its last sleep. The network adapter's wake-this-computer box is deselected in the device manager. Media streaming is not enabled. There is no homegroup. Dism scanhealth and checkhealth show no errors. Checking the system drive and all data drive shows no errors.

I've tried restoring the default power settings for all plans, then reestablishing my own settings, but the problem persists.

Manually putting the PC to sleep is not a viable workaround, in part because the PC wakes for some scheduled tasks (especially overnight) and needs to go back to sleep (which it isn't doing).

Latest updates, drivers, and BIOS are all installed. Motherboard is ASRock Z77 Extreme4.

There are tools to show what keeps a PC from sleeping when idle (powercfg /request), and to show what wakes an idle PC (powercfg /lastwake). But are there any tools to show what keeps an idle PC from being recognized as idle?

How To Postpone PC From Sleeping While Downloading

Sep 14, 2015

Is there a way to allow Windows 10 to stay awake while downloading through Chrome, Steam, etc. and still have the option to automatically resume the sleep timer once downloads are done?

I'd prefer not to look into third-party options for this fix, but I'm willing to try anything.

Sleeping Laptop Wakes Up When Unplugged

Mar 3, 2016

I have my laptop set to sleep when I close the lid. That works. But after the computer is sleeping and the optical mouse has shutdown (lamp off), if I simply unplug the power brick it will wake up again, the sleep light goes off and the mouse lamp comes back on and it starts running (lid closed).

Laptop Not Locking And Sleeping When Lid Closed While Locked

Aug 15, 2015

I recently upgraded to win 10. I found 2 which are related to when you close the lid of your laptop.

1. If you close the lid when the laptop is unlocked, and then open it up again after it has went to sleep, it will not lock the laptop but re show whatever you were doing.

2. If you close the lid when it is locked, it goes into a deep sleep. This sometimes causes me to press the power button so that it wakes up but then it reboots itself I think and shows the lock screen again.

Desktop Sleeping Despite Turning Off All Options For Sleep Mode

Dec 5, 2015

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 on my desktop. Mostly it's just fine. However, I like my screen to stay on when I'm in the office area; cycling through my desktop pictures. Windows 10 is putting my monitor into sleep mode (I assume it's sleep mode because the monitor goes black and is still on and just a mouse wiggle brings it to awake) after 10 minutes (I believe that's how long) and I can't find any options to disable this feature. It's not in the standard setting options for screen saver/sleep. It's not on the monitor itself. I saw posts of many people who are unable to get Windows 10 to go to sleep and my problem is the can this be? How to adjust the sleep/no sleep feature in Windows 10 for a desk top?

Drivers/Hardware :: What Keeps Waking Sleeping Mechanical Storage Drives

Windows 10 really likes to start up my storage drives. I have them set to sleep after one minute in the balanced power profile but not long after they spin down something else causes them to start up again.

They will eventually turn off but spin up again at a later time for no reason. I see that there is no data being written to them in task manager.
