    Windows 8.1 wont wake up from sleep


    Hello

    I have windows 8.1 and noticed that my pc wont wake up from sleep after a long time. For example afte 10-20 minutes it wakes up. But after 1 hour it wont wake up. Even if i disaple sleep mode, the monitor wont wake up.

    I have tried sever things that found online thought I have not yet been able to solve the problem..

    Any ideas??

    Thanks!

    maybe a setting in Catalyst Software Suite causing it .
    ,if it not set to sleep or hibernate ,then it should be on all the time and the monitor would not go black,


    edit- unless i'm getting way behind ,and in need of a computer knowledge upgrade .lol
