    Windows 8.1 -- Theme keeps resetting after sleep mode

    I'm trying to change my computer to High Contrast theme, but Windows keeps resetting me back to the default theme after waking up from sleep mode. It just says "Please wait" and then loads up with the default theme.

    I turned off all of my OneDrive sync settings and it's still happening.

    If I reboot right after changing the theme, it will boot up with the theme I set, but still reset to the default theme after returning from sleep mode the next time.

    Is there some other setting I'm unaware of?

    Are you using Fast Start up?
    Some systems run into problems with it, if you have it on, try seeing what happens if you leave it off for a day or two.

    For more info, take a look here:
