    Optional Update KB3000850

    Same issues: I had same issues and more. IE11 would not work properly and Windows Explorer would freeze - lots of generally strange behaviours. All back to normal. When I get a chance I'll see what's in the update in detail and decide if I need it. VooDoo

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    No Viruses/Malware/Rootkits etc. Same results as I had the first time - and I used some different tools too this time. Glad that bit helped. Not quite sure what problems may arise with it disabled though. :confused:

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Hi, I get what you are saying.But can find nothing on the drive and it was a fresh format. ( never say never though ). So I will do it again and run the NETSTAT and see if its getting used when it shouldn't be. Thanks again for your input.

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Hi XweAponX, thanks for taking the time to suggest more things, appreciated. I was streaming anything, but removed VLC in case. No change. With a Screensaver on, it all works as it should with the cable out. As soon the cable is in, nothing. I have noticed that at the point it should shut...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    I have tried a new cable. It now shuts down with either end out router/computer and when I tried the old cable again, it now works same. Go figure. Still will not shut down as it should though. Thanks for your reply.

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Hi bloodybold I have ran this before and the reports are always the same - basically nothing to stop it going into sleep. It also does not mention the Network card. Which I presume from the behaviour after I remove the cable is the culprit. Thanks

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Hi XweAponX If I get this right, you mean the Power Options>"Put the Computer to Sleep" option. I have it set it to go to sleep - it won't. Thanks

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Hi, Yes it's disabled. Thanks Edit to add: Once asleep it stays that way and if I get it to sleep by other means - PWR Button\Sleep Option in W 8.1, it stays sleeping.

    Windows 8 - What do you think?

    For me there will need to be a clear desktop version without the Metro start stuff; i voted Good except for.... based on my thoughts of using my main computer day in day out. Maybe it would work and feel better that i currently think it would. But it's early days. :-)
