    effing microsoft incompetents

    i dont think m$ would be in business if we weren't all forced to use their garbage with new pcs.

    how the hell is this a thing now. my computer just started doing this. only when entering sleep manually. very clearly a windows thing. w7 never had this problem. why now on w10?

    last time i take suggestion from m$ to do anything. just reinstalled this system too. no time to switch back to 7. god. does bill gates not test this shit before unleashing it on the world ?? how does windows REGRESS??? how does it actually get worse and in such a bad fashion??

    I bet all the M$ idiot engineers use apple macbooks for their work so they don't loose their shit when windows shuts down instead of sleeping like they said. *******s. like if they all used windows at home you'd think an engineer would stumble on this problem before we did and actually fix it or call one of his buddies to fix it ... but they don't ... why? they all use apple for their actual work! such a widespread and obvious problem... so sad and pathetic. i'd feel ashamed if i made a product that functioned like this.

    Win10 PC in Sleep mode turns itself off

    I saw the admin notice that this is an old thread, but I have this problem as well on a new Dell desktop PC with Win10/Pro/64 pre-installed. I'm particularly interested in bacon612's note: " power options i stopped windows from adjusting Pcie link speed and now I can use sleep." Another member asked what this means but there's no answer. How do I find this setting?

    Sleep mode

    Thanks, Ed,

    I finally found those Advanced Settings; not in the same place as Win7, but I got there and did that. We'll see if it does the job.

    Hope you get things sorted. Troubleshooting Win10 can sometimes feel like chasing a needle in a haystack.

The title says it all. When I put the computer to sleep, every few hours it turns back on. I cannot seem to find the problem in any power option. I made sure that my drivers do not wake up my computer in sleep.

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!...
