Windows 10: Monitor won't come out of sleep mode after Update

    Monitor won't come out of sleep mode after Update


    My Dell Inspiron Desktop with Win 10 recently installed 2 updates: Security Update for Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack Service Pack 3 (KB3213647) and 2017-10 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4041676). Following Cumulative Update 4041676, whenever the computer is put to sleep, it doesn't come out of sleep. I have now realized that the computer itself is probably coming out of sleep (the fan whooshes and the power light becomes steady) but the monitor won't display anything. The monitor works fine all the rest of the time. I did try a system restore to a Restore Point before the update, but when I turned the computer off, it re-installed the update, so I can't get rid of it.

    I have the computer and monitor set to never go to sleep automatically. I have unchecked the Hybrid Sleep button.

    Any ideas? I'm at my wit's end on this one.

    I did see that post, but when searching my Updates, I didn't find a single driver update for my monitor. I guess I can try uninstalling & blocking the update, but it worries me that it might be a critical update.

    It depends on the update. Bear in mind
    a. There'll be another cumulative update (if that's what this was, and not a driver update) in a month's time
    b. There's a whole new wonderful sparkling magical Windows build coming over the next few weeks (which I shall be in no hurry to adopt!)

    Yup, it was a cumulative update. So what's this Windows build coming up? I have a feeling I should just let this go for a month or so and see what happens with these new updates. So far I'm the only one I've heard of with this problem with this update, although others have had the BSOD. Compared to that, this isn't so bad, but it's a pain.

    Hello Katie,
    I also had this happen over this past weekend. Thank you for starting this post as I thought I was the only one experiencing this glitch.
    Surprised more people haven't posted as this had to have affected more than 2 users with a Dell Inspiron desktop.
    To wait a month, or even a few weeks for a "fix"/update is criminal but I guess we're stuck.

    The best practice is always to act defensively.

    Maintain disk images of Windows (and your other disks and partitions as appropriate). E.g. Macrium Reflect (free).
    If sthg goes strangely or badly wrong, you can revert to a previous working state by restoring from an image. (However any personal data on the same partition will also be reverted to that date so it's best to separate user data and Windows).

    You could see what comments there are on Dell's forums.

    What I don't understand: From the OP first post, it's contradicting......from title of thread; "monitor doesn't come out of sleep" to the 2nd to last line in thread where OP states "I have the PC and monitor set to never go to sleep".

    So, if it's set to not go to sleep.....how is it going into sleep mode?

    Good question. Maybe she set her computer to those settings once it was awake.
    I can tell you that the only way I can "wake" mine up is too manually shut down via the power button.
    Very frustrating and surprised it will take this long to fix.

    Presumably means she selects Sleep manually (menu).
