Windows 10 Anniversary Update Sleep Bug

  tallboy 11:59 16 Sep 2016

I've just updated my 64-bit Windows 10 system with the Anniversary Update. Everything seems to work OK (fortunately) apart from the Sleep Mode. I have an SSD for the Windows system disk / programs and a HDD for data storage.

Previously, if you put the system in Sleep mode, everything stopped (screen, mouse scanning light, system fans etc.) and came back to life when you moved the mouse or lightly touched the power on button. Now everything stops apart from the fans, which stay 'whirring' as normal. However, when you try to wake the system up (By moving the mouse or touching the power button), the PC doesn't respond. The only way to get it going again is to switch it off entirely and re-start it.

Oddly enough, Hibernate works as it should do; mouse movement restarts the system.

Anyone any ideas how I fix this annoying bug - or how I report it to Microsoft? Thanks.

Many thanks for the link Fruit Bat /\0/. I'll work through these over the w/e and hope that I can locate the problem!

Unfortunately none of the suggested solutions in the Windows Report post did the trick of getting Sleep to work correctly. Any other suggestions Fruit Bat /\0/\?
