Windows 10: PC shutting down incorrectly/not going to sleep when put in sleep mode

    PC shutting down incorrectly/not going to sleep when put in sleep mode

    My computer keeps shutting down after I put it into sleep mode, then when i start it back up it says that it shut down incorrectly. This does not happen all the time, only sporadically. Other times it will not go into sleep mode altogether! Interesting, I had this problem when I had Windows 7 but fixed it using this guide

    Does anyone know what could be causing these problems and how to fix them? Also, does anyone know if there is another guide that has been like the one above, which includes the ideal settings for sleep for windows 10?

    Note: I went into command prompt and ran powercfg -a and noticed that since the update this has occurred:
    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.10240](c) 2015 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg -a
    The following sleep states are available on this system:
    Standby (S3)
    Hybrid Sleep
    Fast Startup

    The following sleep states are not available on this system:
    Standby (S1)
    The system firmware does not support this standby state.

    Standby (S2)
    The system firmware does not support this standby state.

    Standby (S0 Low Power Idle)
    The system firmware does not support this standby state.

    can anyone help? thanks in advance

    I guess a lot of people are facing the same problem. My laptop also not shutting down, sleep or hibernating properly.
    It just takes too long to hibernate, shutdown or even sleep. In my case, after sleep I cannot resume, it just a black screen and pressing anything doesn't do anything and I have to shutdown my laptop and restart again to use. So I set my laptop to never go to sleep or anything just so this doesn't happen.

    I have the same issue (computer won't shut down or properly hibernate) as Mual. How can this be resolved?
