    Having Sleep Issues with Computer, wakes up immediately


    Having Sleep Issues with Computer, wakes up immediately after going to sleep. In a Windows 7 forum there use to be a tutorial per the following:


    Performance & Maintenance Power Options and Sleep Mode Problems

    Is there something similar in this Windows 10 Forum? Thanks in advance.

    You can probably save some time & head-scratching by going to your computer maker's support site and downloading then installing/reinstalling the latest display driver.
    - Display drivers cause a lot of these problems.
    - Reinstalling is better than simply asking Device manager to check for a newer driver because Windows cannot tell if a driver is misbehaving or not so it might happily tell you that you have the latest one whatever its condition.

    If that does not fix it then you should follow @philc43's linked procedures.

    Try3,

    Is a "display driver" the same as drivers for my Video Card (i.e. I have a gigbabye 1070 nvidia video card)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Excellent. Thanks. I stay up with all my Nvidia driver updates. I will do a "fresh install" of the latest one and see if that helps.

    You could also try making sure that your network adapter isn't set to wake the computer. Go to Control Panel and then your network adapters and check the properties for it. Make sure that the highlighted box below isn't checked:

    Sometimes it is by default.
