Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

  1. #1291


    The solar app had a large icon, not sure that is the right terminology, that showed a LUX meter for the how much light was getting to the keyboard, it also showed how the charging of the keyboard was doing, percentage wise.

    I have sent an email to Logitech support to let them know that, so not sure if I will ever hear back from them about it or not.

    Ah, I understand now; kind of like a gauge (analogous of tossing and turning all night) that keeps the computer awake as it checks its progress or lack thereof.

    As good as I've found Logitech products, I have a feeling they'll be looking at this one for sure.

    It seems that my sleep problem was due to a broken screen saver. The screen saver was set to NONE and was greyed out but Win8.1 thought it was still running. To fix it, set the setting to bubble and click apply, then set it back to NONE and click Apply. that officially turned off screensaver.

    I also might have needed to turn off hard drives before the time I set for sleep to occur. Setting the sleep to one minute might not work in this case as the hard drives might not have time to spin down.

    This is what the Screen Saver setting looked like but the power troubleshooter told me that it was enabled. To UNenable it was to do this, then put it BACK to NONE.

    Dayam, John! If you didn't have bad luck with that one computer, you'd have no luck at all.

    Happy Birthday to whomever earned it.

    Okay people this is just getting. . ., use the "Turn Off " option, and the "Sleep Option" becomes a none issue.
