    My last bag of tricks ................
    Assuming you have all the updates installed.

    Right click at Start > Device manager.................

    - expand Display Adaptors
    - Right-click on Intel(R) HD Graphics Family and select Update Driver Software...
    - Choose the option to Search Automatically for Updated Driver Software
    - Your computer should find and automatically install the updated driver
    - After the installation is complete, restart your computer

    See if that brings back Sleep option.

    Thanks for trying again. I don't think I do have the latest Windows 10 updates. Windows seems to stall when checking for updates--to go into an endless loop. I looked for an answer to this problem once before--people on the Web said to stop certain services, delete the Distribution Files in the Windows folder, and then Restart. Do I need to do that?

    I have never done it myself, and for method like that, I would not make comment unless I have first hand experience.
    Therefore, I refrain from advising on this question.

    Have you tried the Device Manager method ?

    Sleep came back


    A Windows update fixed the problem.

    I think you're right!
    Does yours work after a reboot?
    Does yours wake with mouse movement or any key?

    That is a system file corruption

    Open in elevated command prompt by typing in cortana "cmd" no parentheses, right click and click, run as administrator

    Click yes on UAC
    Type sfc /scannow

    That should fix the system file corruptions.

    Windows XP standby is now called "Sleep" in Windows 10, which is also in Windows Vista, 7, 8, and 8.1

    Hope this helps


    Edit, I see your problem is fixed. Hope it still continues to work
