Windows 10: Sleep waking randomly and regularly restarts laptop.

  1.    10 Nov 2017 #1

    Sleep waking randomly and regularly restarts laptop.

    I think the sleep feature in the Win 10/64 on my laptop has become corrupted. When I put the machine to sleep, sometimes it wakes normally, but about 70% of the time, on waking the machine has shut down and re-boots.

    I know MS Office has an online repair feature, so I was wondering if Win 10 does something like this. I'd like to troubleshoot a bit, before I go all the way to reinstalling Windows.

    If those fail to solve the issue, I would attempt a repair install Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade Installation Upgrade Tutorials before a clean install.

    Component Store process found and repaired an error, but that didn't resolve the issue. The command prompt process gave some message that said Protection could not complete a task, but another command said there were no issues found.

    Sounds like my next choice is a repair from Settings (since my machine didn't include the original media), where I can keep my files on the OS drive, but I will have to download reinstall all my programs. Any more suggestions before I go through with it? thanks

    Before I tried a Reset or a clean install, I would try a repair install with the media downloaded. Before I did anything I would back up my personal files. This process should leave them in place and just as they were, but you can't be too careful with computers.

    This will show you how to do a repair install. It's really quite easy. It should also leave most, if not all of your installed programs in place as well. Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade Installation Upgrade Tutorials
