Windows 10 not waking up from sleep mode

Q: Windows 10 not waking up from sleep mode

My computer will not wake up from sleep mode. When I first updated the OS to windows 10 the sleep mode worked just fine, but within the last few months it will not wake from the sleep mode. I have tried many different solutions with none of them fixing the issue. Can anyone help with this issue?

Preferred Solution: Windows 10 not waking up from sleep mode

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


When I first upgraded my spare desktop to Windows 10, all was well, so I put it to sleep and did some work on my laptop. About an hour later, I noticed that the desktop woke up by itself. I just shrugged it off, thinking that I may have brushed the keyboard accidentally. Well, it also occurred in the middle of the night that same day.

Last night, my laptop woke itself up from sleep mode. (I have my laptop connected to my TV, so the screen is always opened) around 3 AM.

I never had this problem with Windows 7. Is this happening to anyone else, or is it just me?

(I've searched around and have seen this issue posted around on the site, but since there might be multiple causes for this, I thought it best to post this new topic. If this is incorrect, simply link me to a similar thread on the issue, and I'll post there/try that solution. Whatever makes more sense.)

Simply put: almost every time my computer has woken up from sleep mode, it has woken up into a BSOD. I can't name any new software or hardware I have installed that might have brought this about. I bought it new fairly recently, and the only hardware I put in it are a microphone and a mouse. The closest I can think would be installing DirectX 9 as part of Civ V, but since the problem comes from before this event, I doubt that is the cause. I have tried installing updates, hoping that might fix this, but this has not helped. Here's a link to the ZIP file the Diagnostic on this site has given me: https://www.dropbox.com/s/w0he0h4ryg...st%20crash.zip

Also, this may not be related, but for completeness, I'll list another issue that might possibly be related. Sometimes, after restarting my computer, Japanese characters fail to display properly in a lot of programs. I can see it just fine in Chrome, but if I mouse over Chrome to preview the windows, for instance, and the page title is in Japanese, I simply get the "couldn't figure out what this is" boxes.

I have been using sleep mode for a while. Until recently, I had to re-install my OS due to some troubleshooting and hardware issues. Now my PC won't wake up from sleep mode with the new install. She goes to sleep, and when I try to wake her up, she powers on, for like 2 seconds and then shuts off. I have to turn on the power switch to get it to boot. My pc is not a generic brand pc. It's a custom built water cooled pc. I haven't noticed any new driver installs. I have performed a clean start up with no insight to what the issue could be. Event viewer only shows what I expected.

I'm getting no sound after resuming from S1 sleep mode in Windows 8 and the only way to fix this is to either physically unplug the audio cable and plug it back in or restart the computer. I tried the audio troubleshooter and it could not find any problems and there is nothing to fix. I need to reconnect the audio cable every time the computer wakes up from sleep unless I restart the computer. I have an EVGA X58 motherboard with a Realtek ALC889 audio chip. I'm using the latest R2.70 audio driver from EVGA which is the same version as on the Realtek website.

I am having this exact same problem. I too, have recently upgraded to Windows 8 and updated my Bios. I also updated my Realtek drivers to the newest drivers. Oddly, I think my problem occurred after the updates. I do not think it was doing this using the Windows 8 stock driver. So it was either the new bios update or the Realtek driver (High Definition Driver (3.50) R2.70) update that introduced the problem. I may try rolling back the driver and see if the problem persists.

Hi there, I work in IT for 19 years now but I only have a limited experience with LENOVO ThinkCentre product's line. I just got (for free) an old ThinkCentre M72e (Type 4004) tiny desktop that were coming from the factory with Windows 8 Professional, then was downgraded from the factory to Windows 7 Professionnal (using Microsoft downgrade rights) because the company's software that they use where not compatible at this time with W8. Somewhere around 2015-16, the computer automatically upgraded to Windows 10 Profesionnal (during the free upgrade period), but the people uninstalled it back to W7 since the company's software was still incompatible with W10. End of the scenario. When receiving the M72e, I first replaced the factory HDD with a very fast SSD I already had, then I installed W10Pro using a generic USB thumb drive and everything went fine, the computer already had his digital licence, so this went perfectly smooth. Since this computer is not that much old, all drivers and peripherals installed automatically with Windows Update. Then, I ran the latest BIOS update available for this computer (F4KT61A - 24 Jul 2018) and update went good. So I thought that the computer was up and running and ready to be given (for free) to my mother in law who have a 12 years old computer that are still W7. So I left the M72e running on my desk during a day, then I noticed that when the computer goes to SLEEP mode, it never wake up. If I press any key to wake it up, t... Read more

I have a setup of Ctrl+1,2,3,4,5 shortcuts for switching keyboard layouts on Windows 8.1.
Once I boot up my laptop they work just fine and the layouts shortcuts setup window looks like this if I open it:

However now when I close my laptop, putting it into sleep mode, and then open it again, the keyboard shortcuts stop working and if I open the aforementioned setup window, it also looks as if I have none configured:

To get my shortcuts back after sleep mode I have either to reboot the laptop, or assign the shortcuts again manually.

This is a problem I've experienced before on this same machine (Lenovo Yoga 13) with Windows 8 (before the 8.1 update) and I guess at that time it dissapeared after some editing of the list of layouts I use.

However now I've added some layouts to the list, and then removed some of them and so on and here is what I get again.
Maybe there is some branch of Windows Registry involved with the layouts and keyboard-shortcuts messed up and I could simply remove the registry branch and start with a clean slate?

A:Windows 8.1 is forgetting Ctrl+1,2,3,4,5 shortcuts designated for keyboard layout switching after waking up from sleep mode

Windows seems to overwrite personal layout controls configuration with defaults on some occasions. Hence, the way to have a "permanent" solution basically appears to be rewriting your HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control
Panel\Input Method\Hot Keys with what you have in your HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control
Panel\Input Method\Hot Keys once you've configured your layout-switch shortcuts correctly.
This is in fact an old legacy bug, apparently from the times of Windows XP: https://superuser.com/questions/327479/ctrl-space-always-toggles-chinese-ime-windows-7
I would love to have it included into the Microsoft's bug tracker, but I don't seem to find my way through connect.microsoft.com.

I've been using this Windows 7 Home system for some years. At first it used the CRT monitor I had for much longer than this system, then a used LCD monitor, now for the last six or eight months a larger used, but seemingly in excellent condition, Dell E228WFP.

My habit has been, for much longer than I've had the Win7 system, to manually put the system in sleep mode during the day when I expect to be away for any extended time. I turn it off if I will definitely be away for hours and turn it off over night.

The problem did not exist until this Dell monitor. I don't recall how soon after getting the monitor it started, probably not very long.

The system always come up working properly when first turned on but sometimes, when I awaken the system, the video is at a much lower resolution. Looking at the Windows Screen resolution, it says generic PNP monitor rather than the Dell. This is an annoyance but easy enough to fix, just click on Detect, and it switches back to the Dell at the higher resolution, the recommended 1680 X 1050, which is enough to suit me.

Starting perhaps six or eight weeks ago it sometimes instead woke up with a message
1: auto detect (analog input)
Cannot display this video mode
optimum resolution 1680 x 1050 60Hz

Sometime the first line instead says
2: Analog Input

The only way to get any video is to restart the system, which always came up correct from boot or reboot, just not from reawaken. If nothing was open when I put it to sleep, I can use the k... Read more

When my computer wakes up from sleep mode all the fans start turning and everything seems to power up but nothing shows up on the screen. After a few hard reboots the system will start up and run extremely slow for a minute, and then be fine. That is until it sleeps again. I know the simple fix would be just to never let it sleep but for power saving reasons I use this mode.


A:Waking up from sleep mode.

Go into device manager and see if all your drivers are installed and there are no problems there. I would also run a windows 7 update. I believe that is a hotfix from MS that is intended to fix the issue and it should be available in the windows 7 updates.

When I put my computer in Sleep mode, using the start button / shutdow / sleep it "sleeps" for about 10 minutes and wakes up on its own! Could it be programs trying to run in the background that wakse it up; Carbonite Backup or Norton? I can't get the computer to remain in sleep mode!

Thanks, Airpix

A:Sleep mode, why is it waking up?

I had a similar problem with my PC, which uses a Gigabyte motherboard, so I checked the Gigabyte forums -- and the advice they gave me was to disable the BIOS option to allow the PC to wake on USB. The downside is that I now have to push the power button to wake the PC; the upside is that it STAYS asleep until I wake it.

My system goes to sleep after 20 minutes just the way I want it.
The problem comes from waking it up to perform scheduled tasks.
I run a weekly scan using McAfee which doesn't wake up my system, so I have to come up with a method of making sure my machine is awake at the scheduled time.
I also run a scheduled backup of my system, so the impact is felt here too.
Currently before the scheduled tasks run, I change my power setting to never go to standby (I forget the actual phrase, but you know what I mean), but that seems drastic. There must be a way of waking up my maching prior to a scheduled event then after the event go back to sleep.
Any help out there??

I have purchased a brand-new desktop with Windows 8. After setting up and playing around with Power Options, I had set my computer to 1)turn the display off after 10 minutes 2)put the computer to sleep after 15 minutes and 3)require a password upon wakeup. Everything worked how it was supposed to.

Last night, my friend and I replaced the stock PSU with a more powerful one I bought online. I'm not very tech-savvy so I was just happy my computer powered on and everything seemed to be working fine. I was wrong.

When my computer goes to sleep (timer or forced), I can no longer wake it up with my keyboard or mouse (wireless set) as I was able to before. I have to hit the power button on the tower. That seems to be the only problem as of right now...but last night it was doing even weirder things. Last night I set the sleep timer to 1 minute so that I could test whatever was going on. After a minute, the display would turn off but the fan and fan lights on the tower would still be running. It would not wake with the keyboard or mouse, and when I hit the power button on the tower it would shut off. I can't remember if it was resuming from sleep or booting up when I pressed the button a second time...

I don't know what changed but at least the computer is waking up from sleep now. Any ideas about how to fix the mouse/keyboard problem? I don't know how changing the PSU affected all this...like I said I don't know much about the inner workings of a computer so I hope I didn't mess a... Read more

Hi, I hope this is the right forum.

Sleep mode not working properly. When i close the lid, or select sleep, and then try to resume, the computer turns off instead. Upon restarting i get the error message "Windows did not shut down correctly" (as shown in the attached photo)

I have scoured these forums and have tried various solutions which do not work.

Some of the things that i have tried which i can remember:

Double checked all the power settings
Checked the device manager and under "USB Controllers", where there is a "USB Root Hub" under "power management" i have deselected "allow this computer to turn off this device to save power"
Turning off hybrid mode
Any other ideas?

Would love to solve this problem, really annoying.

A:Not waking from sleep mode properly

first enter your BIOS and make sure that ACPI power state is set to S3 and hardware settings are set to wake with 'any key' and/or mouse (mousepad) or 'lid opening' (not sure if this setting exists as I don't use laptops)--after booting--check to see that your screen saver is set to 'none'

then change your power plan to High Performance (you can edit this later to save your battery)--then edit the plan settings to match the screen shots (note: the settings shown in the first screen shot for 'turn off display' and 'put computer to sleep')--IF this works--then try editing one setting at a time (testing) to see which works for power saving (put machine to sleep--wait a minute or so as win 7 doesn't sleep instantly)--then wake it, to see how a changed setting affects the function)

Hi, as the title says ive been having repeated problems with Sleep Mode, i have set ACPI Standby State to S3 & there are no overclocking settings enabled, it could be related to my hardrive, i have three with one being an SSD (Samsung 840 Pro 128gb) that has the OS, (Samsung HD103SJ) & (Samsung HD753LJ) for storage, the driver is the latest one, im also using a Gigabyte EP35-DS3R with a custom Bios F5 update that Gigabyte sent me to help fix an error with sleep mode a few years back before i upgraded to an SSD, its known to be buggy when overclocking as it can cycle thru wake up / sleep when overclocking but i dont bother with that anyway GA-EP35-DS3R Rev.2.1 - NOT GOING TO OVERCLOCK. - AnandTech Forums

By going into bios & resetting Stanby State to S3 seems to fix it but after a while the BSOD returns

Included is the Zip file containing the logs

Also when i reboot, by pressing delete it doesn't always load up the Bios screen but instead the Windows Safety Mode?

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any sort of disc cleanup program (CCleaner, TuneUp or the inbuilt Disk Cleanup) befor you upload another zip.

When I configured the Metro e-mail program on my laptop the system announced that it was increasing the security settings on my computer. (Thanks for nothing for not telling me what changes were being made). Afterwards, the laptop goes into sleep mode if unattended for more than 10 minutes. In Control Panel/Power Options I have indicated that the laptop should go into Sleep mode after 4 hours, whether plugged in or on battery. Why does the system ignore this setting?

Also, when the laptop is awakened from Sleep mode, the system requires me to enter my password again. In Control Panel/Power Options/System Settings the "Password protection on wake-up" setting is set to "Don't require a password" . Why is the OS ignoring this setting?

A:Logon on waking from sleep mode

Some advanced settings may need adjustment,
try Control Panel > Power Options > ((Change when the computer sleeps) Edit Plan Settings) > Change advanced power settings > then edit the sub menus from the + plus sign sub settings

Recheck to see if any changes have been applied.
Recheck any changes after a logoff, shutdown or reboot.

My custom computer doesn't wake up from sleep mode whenever I try to wake it up. It's a problem that started a few weeks ago, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to resolve it. I tried everything I've could, and I think I might have a lead. I was able to wake the computer up from sleep mode only once after changing the power settings in device manager for the Human Interface Devices, Keyboards, Mice, and USB, along with turning off Window's 10 sleep mode via the Command Prompt. For some reason, trying to change the power options again doesn't get sleep mode working for me again. If anyone has a better idea as to the actual problem I'm facing, please let me know what I can do.

I am running Vista Home Premium 64 bit on an HP Pavilion desktop computer.
When not working on the computer, I put it in sleep mode.
To waken it, I move the mouse. This works, but for the first few seconds of the awakening the computer makes a high-pitched, fast reverberating sound.
This sound comes from the speakers, which determine the loudness of the sound.
The same sound occurs if I awaken the computer by pressing a key on the keyboard. This sound did not occur until after the first 12 months of owning the computer, which came with Vista. Does anyone know of this problem and how to eliminate it?

A:Noise when waking from sleep mode

Sound, must be related to the sound card. Go to device manager (type name in search) and then check the drivers for the sound card) Most current? Working properly? Go to website check for updates of drivers and firmware. Reset sound card.

When I wake my PC both from automatic "Turn off the display" option and from sleep mode a "film grain" effect at beginning is produced for 3 seconds and then it goes normal. The problem was there also before the AMD ReLive update. I don't know if that's normal, but I don't want to risk by ignoring it, I just worry that the problem will get worse and worse. I bought this GPU and the other parts 2 months ago, so it's not very old. I don't get any problems when playing games. Also the specifications.

* GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX 460 4g GDDR5 Nitro
* CPU: Intel Core i3-6100 3.7 GHz
* RAM: 8GB DDR4 2133 MHz
* OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit updated to the latest version
* HDD: TOSHIBA 1TB + 1TB Western Digital external hard drive

This has been going on for over a year now.  If my computer is asleep for more than 1 hour I will most likely have my computer wake up with a message saying "PC needs repair".  I have sent it into the depot to get reimaged as my backup images have the problem.  Well its still happening after a fresh image from Lenovo.  Any ideas what could be causing this?  Thanks.

New user, so apologies if I've made any mistakes in the formatting of this post.

I get intermittent freezing on waking from sleep mode, and indeed occasionally it wakes up immediately after sleeping.

I looked in the event manager and after 2 separate occasions of it freezing on waking up, it's come up with vwififilt as the culprit. I hope I've uploaded a screengrab correctly.

I can't find anything online which distinguishes why this file is not loading and causing a freeze on waking from sleep mode.

Any ideas on what I can do to remedy this problem? And also why I might be getting this sporadic problem of the system waking immediately after sleeping?

Hi Guys

I am running the above system spec with the Hard Drive being SSD. A little while ago I started experiencing problems when the computer goes to sleep. I have all the latest updates installed and have all drivers up to date. I even tried to system restore to a date earlier than when the problem started but it persists unfortunately. The odd thing is that most days when I am working, it never skips a beat but does occasionally reboot itself mid use but again not very often. I have now turned off all sleep functionality but still the system somehow goes to sleep . Around 1 in 5 times it resumes windows successfully however its the other 4 times not to mention when I have to transport the laptop I inevitably have to make sure anything important is saved and closed otherwise it is lost which caught me out the first couple of times and cost me some extra unneeded hours. The below problem is similar to the other on the thread except for the BCCcode? Any help is greatly appreciated..Thanks Marty

I've been trying to catch the various error codes at the blue screen, but haven't been quick enough. In the event viewer I see ID 10 event codes, but from what I read online they are not indicative of a serious problem. The BSODs seem to be associated with windows 7 waking from sleep. I have been researching that all morning, and I believe my system is set up correctly. I use S3 mode as far as I can tell. This is a brand new computer build, and my first time, so I wouldn't be surprised if I'm missing something. I really like the trouble shooting, and especially utilizing the brain power online, so I appreciate any help that can be offered.

I finally captured a stop message.
STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA800B938B30, 0xFFFFFA800B938E10, 0xFFFFF80002F80460)

Welcome and thank you for choosing SevenForums.

A number of your .dmp files come with bug check code F4, often relates to hard drive issues.

I note you have a SSD.

Norton tends to cause BSOD-s. I would recommend uninstalling it with the Norton Removal Tool and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials To Test.

I recently built an HTPC and it was working OK until last night. I?ve been using it mainly as an OTA DVR and it does wake up, record, etc.

I went to program a recording & it was already awake & the HDD indicator LED was on. However the HDTV had a black screen with a message to select boot device & press any key. This was not a BSOD but a black screen. There was no way to select anything as every time I pressed a key the same message displayed another time. I finally powered off.

Another program was scheduled to record at this time but it should not have. It was a series schedule set for new but this episode was not. That?s one strike against the EPG. Anyway it started recording after I booted back up but it was missing the first 40 minutes because I booted up 40 minutes into the program.

I don?t think the program was the problem but maybe there was a glitch at the start of the recording which caused the problem, I don?t know. Unfortunately I have no idea how long the HTPC had been sitting in the ?select boot? state. It could have been that way for hours.

I looked at the PC?s event logs to see if anything was obvious. But there were so many logs I had no idea what I was looking at.

Any ideas what would cause a PC to display the message or where to look? Could this be a motherboard or RAM problem?

A:Black Screen waking from sleep mode

"select boot device" is normally a message form BIOS id it can't find a proprt boot device. I think win7 crashed and did an automatic reboot. On reboot it couldn't find or access the harddisk. Do you have "automatic restart on crash" enabled? If so, disable it so you can see the BSOD
