About the sleep problem, not sure. How come you're not sure if it's before Windows starts?
Hi @meerkt, regarding my sleep problems, since you asked I've done the following;
-I had already replaced my PSU (an old PCP&C 750 that was a workhorse) with a Corsair Rm850x.
-Reset my bios
-Enabled ErP (S4+S5)
-Disabled hybrid sleep.
and the big one...
-Bought a new SSd and did a completely fresh windows install.
No difference. When I wake the system from sleep, the systems powers up, including keyboard and mouse, internal LED's, fans, etc, but it doesn't wake monitors, or give me any kind of POST, or windows logo. It starts up the power and stops.
I had looked through the forum links you'd provided and found nothing useful (BTW, can I just say how thankful I am to be TR member? Other forums are filled with dumbs**t responses and replies).
This is important as I am actually losing work and work time to this. Any suggestions appreciated.
