Windows 10: Laptop not resuming from sleep after HDD-to-SSD upgrade
Laptop not resuming from sleep after HDD-to-SSD upgrade
I have a new problem with my laptop which I had never had in the 3 years previously, whether it ran Windows 8, 8.1 and then 10.
Usually, when I go to bed at night I close my laptop screen and it goes into sleep. I then wake it up the next day without any issues.
But last week I upgraded my laptop's hard disk drive to an SSD and now if I close my laptop lid or put it into sleep mode, and then try and wake it the next day, it comes on, but nothing comes on the screen. I know it is on, as I can hear the fan whirring and also pressing the power button puts it back to sleep. But the display is completely blank. I then have no option but to hold the power button for 4 secs to power down the machine. Which is hardly ideal and means I lose anything I was doing when I closed the lid.
Oddly enough, if I put the laptop in sleep mode by closing the lid and then wake it a few minutes later, it does come on perfectly normally like before. The problem seems to be if the laptop has been in sleep for hours (i.e - overnight when I go to bed) and then when I press a key to wake it, it doesn't come back on.
Any ideas? Thanks
You could generate a sleep study report and post it here in code tags so we might be able to see what is happening.
Go here for the tutorial: Sleep Study Report - Generate in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
To post in code tags, select all of the report and copy it to clipboard, the click the hash(#) in the editor toolbar above and then paste the report in the middle.
Thanks for your fast reply Cliff.
Unfortunately, my laptop does not support S0 Low Power Idle state, and therefore I cannot run that tool.

Unfortunately even after reading all that I can't find any way to solve this problem, I really don't get it. It's either linked to me now having an SSD, or the clean install of Windows 10 (I had previously had 10 installed after updating from Windows 8.1)
Before I took the old hard drive out with Windows 10 on, I backed up the Power Profiles on the machine, and I imported them on my current Windows 10 install to copy the settings exactly in the Balanced profile, but this doesn't seem to have solved the problem. There's nothing in the event log to suggest any problems when this happens. I also don't have any newer drivers to install for things like graphics. I am stumped on this one :-(
Is your laptop an ASUS? If so enter the bios and set PLL Overvoltage to Disabled.
I have freshly installed Windows 10 Home 64 on Samsung 850 EVO 500 Gb SSD. From the install time I getting regular BSOD's, but only in one typical scenario: after 4th or 5th time when pc resumed from sleep, other ways the pc runs...
Has anyone else noticed and/or fixed this issue? It seems that sometimes when I'm watching a video (usually in Media Player Classic) or listening to music (in MediaMonkey), sometimes when I pause playback, after resuming, the volume seems to...

I have an HP 8540 laptop. I have the power settings set to high performance and all the options to go to sleep when plugged in are set to off/no.
HOWEVER, it keeps going to sleep even when things like a download is running. There r a few things...
This also happened with Windows 8.x but it persisted after I upgraded to Windows 10.
It's an older machine with limited support, but I'd like to try and use it if I can. It's a tank of a laptop.
