    Windows 8.1 Is Not Sleeping


    I have tried several commands in the command prompt, but I don't know if I am doing it right or not. The problem has to do with a driver running that says srvnet in the Command Prompt. What command prompt shall I enter to resolve this issue?

    It's sleeping now. One of those commands must have worked. I tell you what, these computers have a mind of their own. Thanks, Nucci.
