    Hibernation & Hybrid sleep causing PC to crash on waking up.

    I had this problem when Windows 8 was new (but never had it with 8.1) and now it looks like it is back with W10.

    My PC was fine up until about 2 days ago, it would go into hybrid sleep and wake with no problems but now every time I try to wake my PC the LED's, mouse and keyboard turn on but then it crashes and reboots.

    I tried re-installing drivers, un-installed them, downloading them from the manufacturers websites instead of windows update but the problem remains.

    I think I've narrowed down where the problem comes from and it appears to be the hybrid sleep option, disabling it and just using sleep works as expected, but if I try to use hybrid sleep....boom it happens again. I also tried enabling hibernation and that also crashes when waking up, so I assume there is a problem with the hibernation feature.

    Just wondering if anyone has encountered this or would know a possible fix?

    I think I may fixed my problem, I just installed the Intel HD graphics driver for my mobo and hybrid sleep seems to be working now.

    I had installed every driver from my mobo manufacturer except the Intel graphics one. I thought I would not need it as I was running an Nvidia graphics card! Silly me.
