    soon ,don't hold your breath on that one
    Actually the W9 preview will be out very soon and live in the spring. Don't hold your breath that it will provide a sustainable fix to the sleep problems.

    Why don't you just give Bill a call. He should be in the phone book.

    You're in the wrong thread. Go here and post a new thread specifically for your problem.

    Software and Apps - Windows 8 Forums

    This thread is strictly for "Windows 8.1 Refuses to Sleep.

    @ jpsoni And I'll guarantee that an outward mail problem is not an MS or Harvey Norman problem. Your SMTP (outward mail server) likely needs fixing. Someone will help you with this in the right forum.

    Not a Chrome issue with me as it is not installed. I use IE.

    Lots of updates for Win8.1 this week. I saw a handful of changes regarding sleep and hibernate, but nothing which looked like it would necessarily affect the insomnia issue. But maybe? I don't have much hope though... As my sister would say, "I'm not going to hold my hand on my fanny." Don't ask. I don't know.

    Be careful. One of those optional updates requires you to first manually uninstall a bad update from the last batch of updates. Microsoft has been sending out bad updates again.

    Too late! I haven't seen any problems though...

    Edit:
    But then I didn't install the updates until late Wed night, either.
