    Computer will not sleep.


    Hi, I am having trouble getting my computer to sleep. Can someone please look at this for me?

    Sometimes it is your network adapter. Go to device manager, then network adapters and click on properties. Then click on the power managerment tab and uncheck "allow this device to wake the computer".

    I may be having the same problem! The sleep and hibernate options seem to close down the system, then seconds or minutes later, everything wakes up again! Before I get to the PC everything closes down again.

    I believe that there is no stability yet and that these options should not be used with Windows 10 beta versions.

    Generalising from your problem to all other systems is drawing a long bow. And what does 'no stability' mean?

    I am sure there are very many win 10 systems where sleep works as expected, mine included. (It didn't with 8.1 but that is another very long story!).

    my win10 computer sleeps and wakes up just fine and is as stable as it was with win8.1 on it

    It may well be "drawing a long bow" - the chipset drivers upon which many power options are based are not available as stable final versions for beta OS versions that are appearing for Windows 10, especially for old and probably obsolete hardware such as I am using, but that's what this forum is all about, - pushing the boundaries - i'n'it?

    Is the computer not sleeping at all? Or is it going to sleep then waking when you don't want it to?

    If it's the second option then this tutorial (to show what events have caused the computer to wake) may help you to diagnose - not tried it in Windows 10 but I'd hope it would be the same:

    This fixed my issue.

    Had exactly the same problem. And indeed it is caused by the network adapter.
    But I am using it to wake up the computer remotely. So if you need that too do not uncheck "Allow this device to wake up the computer", but instead also check "Only allow a magic packet to wake the computer"
    Mine was working fine prior to upgrading. I did not look before. Either this option was not available or was unchecked by the upgrade.
