    My Windows 10 PC will no longer sleep or hibernate?

    My (64 bit) Windows 10 desktop PC will no longer sleep or hibernate.

    Instead, it shuts down completely.

    How can I enable sleep and hibernate?

    Hi mobile1.

    When did this start?

    What changes were made just prior to the start of issues?

    Are you using restore points .... with the possibility of doing a system restore.

    What version an build are you on?

    Windows key + R, type winver, enter

    Version build number?

    So this started in September?

    Do you have a restore point that old?

    Have you tried to reset power plans to defaults.

    In the left lower corner search type power and open power and sleep settings > on the right pane click additional power settings > choose what closing the lid does > click change settings that are currently available > uncheck turn on fast startup

    post an image into the thread

    reboot and evaluate sleep and hibernation

    recheck fast startup

    reboot and evaluate sleep and hibernation

    report into the thread any changes in sleep and hibernation.

    Lenovo uses their own Power Manager. Just download it again and it should start. HIbernate is supposed to be disabled, since it causes a lot of issues, especially Hybrid Sleep.

    A lot of things can keep your computer from going to sleep, like downloading a file, opening a file on the network, or even a disconnected printer with an open job. Windows O/S have an easy method for finding out what the problem is.

    In Windows Vista, 7:

    1. Click button.
    2. Type Cmd.exe, right click "Cmd.exe", select Run as administrator

    In Windows 8, 8.1 and 10:

    1. Press the + X keys.
    2. Select Command Prompt (Admin)

    In Windows XP:

    1. Press + R to open Run box
    2. Type Cmd.exe, click OK button

    Within the Command Prompt type:

    Powercfg  -requests

    It'll let you know if anything is keeping the computer awake.
