    Perhaps the---lastwake---switch might give some information.

    If your computer is hanging (not BSOD crashing) on wakeup, there may not be any core dumps written out. But the WhoCrashed tool should still show any drivers that have caused specific Windows error codes and what those errors might mean.

    I think that your problem is not when your pc wakes up, but when it first goes to sleep. When your pc tries to go to sleep, something causes an inconsistent or corrupted state from which the computer cannot wake up.

    Try installing the software tool WhoCrashed and run it the next time the computer fails to awaken and you have to reboot it. (Be patient; it takes a long time to start up and to analyze those core dumps. It's NOT frozen or hung.)
    As I feared, no record of any crash in WhoCrashed. It just takes existing dump files.

    And I don't see any record here of drivers causing problems - or a section where such information would be?

    So I did some digging:

    this is definitely a software issue. I gave half my old hardware to family and they've not had a single issue. Where I used to get this issue with that hardware too.

    I just have no idea how to fix this. Whatever it is, intermittently, is locking up my PC on wake.

    I'm completely out of ideas at this point.

    I will say one thing - I did notice this specific current issue (wake up lock) appear last April with the update of Windows 10. And I also recall a lot of comments at the time that that update had done similar with other users?

    Not using sleep, but screen saver and power settings gives you an equivalent (almost) so at least you have a valid work around.
    It's what I do by choice.

    Do you have an Intel CPU? Is it overclocked? I remember microcode updates related to Spectre caused some issues with sleep. I fixed a similar sleep issue at the time by replacing the intel microcode file with the one from the previous release of Windows 10.
