    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    David, I appreciate you taking the time to try it out on your system. I'm glad to know that it works for you. Just out of curiousity, when was the last time that you rebooted your computer prior to testing its sleep function?

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Based on the Event Log, there is no indication that the computer ever initiated a sleep event during the 3-4 hours that it was constantly awake. I do not have hibernate enabled, so it did not enter hibernation. It is a very interesting quirk in that after a reboot, I can adjust the sleep timer...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    I must be a complete idiot. I can't seem to get the SF_DD_MM_YYYY folder to appear on the desktop. What am I doing wrong? EDIT: Got it figured out. I have my Desktop location remapped to another drive. Here is the zipped folder.

    All right, you got a deal. I'm game. What do you need to get started?

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Masterchief, not to be disrespectful, but I have to disagree with you. You are correct in that this issue isn't prolific enough to be a headline on major tech websites. However, it must be a fairly substantial problem when this thread was started 7 months ago and has been viewed over 112,000...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Update: Well, I unfortunately have some bad news to report. After nearly a week of running solid, the testing rig with Update 1 has now stopped sleeping on a timer. I'm now having exactly the same problems as my main computer with Windows 8.1 on it. It is certainly an interesting quirk...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    No, my computer does not sleep while a Youtube video is playing. When the video is playing, an audio driver is in use, and therefore halts the sleep command. The only way that I can think of where a computer would sleep while a Youtube video is playing is for there to be an override request...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    mw8t, I was hopeful of that too. However, the Power Plan Settings are exactly the same. No changes.

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    I see what you are saying. However, I do not have my computers set to hibernate, so the insomnia has always been related to something else.

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Yes, I did. Well, let me clarify that. I didn't exactly sit here and watch the computer wake itself at 3:00 am (or whatever time tasks are scheduled for in Task Scheduler). However, I did not disable any of the scheduled nightly or daily maintenance tasks, so I have to assume that the...

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Potential Fix - Windows 8.1 Update 1 Well, it's been a long time since I've posted. Like all the rest of you, I've just sat back and dealt with our problematic sleep issue the best way I could for the past few weeks/months. Like so many of you, I can easily get the automatic sleep function to...

    Windows 8.1 Update 1 leaked

    For those of you that are test driving the new build, what has been your experience with automatic sleep? As some of you may know or have heard about, Windows 8.1 seemed to break sleep. There is an enormous discussion on this issue in this forum (as well as many other forums). I'm very...

    Wake up the tablet using the Windows button?

    I'm not sure that this statement is correct. While it is not clear as to which brand of Windows 8 tablet the OP owns, at least according to the Microsoft Surface website it appears that pressing the Windows key on the bezel of a Surface will wake the tablet: There are a few ways to wake...

    Solved New Graphics card not allowing computer to sleep

    I can't say for sure, but I suppose it is entirely possible that the card doesn't support sleep. I'm not sure why sleep doesn't show up in your shutdown settings menu, as it would seem that it should be there now.

    Solved New Graphics card not allowing computer to sleep

    Alright, it's good to know that you are back in Windows. Does it show that you have the NVIDIA graphics driver installed or do you need to go through that process again? Also, I apologize for confusing you with the various options. While you don't need to do anything about it now, I'll go...
