    Desktop PC Sometimes Difficult To Get Into Sleep Mode


    My 8 year old Acer Aspire desktop was on Windows 7, but the pc was slow and 7 corrupted. I decided to let a knowledgeable friend install a new SSD and a new install of 10. I'm really happy with everything and the new SSD has transformed the speed of the pc.

    There's one problem that is intermittent. A lot of the time I click on START in bottom left and click SLEEP. Half the time it goes to sleep, other times it takes a few attempts. Today I tried 6 times, then gave up and just shut it down. If I try to use sleep on an occasion when it doesn't work, it returns to the first screen I get after start up, which is the screen before the one that asks for my password. Then I have to enter my password to sign in to try sleep again.

    Any ideas, please?

    What version of Windows 10?

    Press Window key, type winver and press Enter. You should get a window like this:

    What does it show for Version and build? Some builds do have sleep problems.
