What To Do When Windows Fails To Wake Up From Sleep Mode

There may may be times where you may find that, try as you may, your Windows 10/8/7 computer does not wake up from Sleep Mode. Moving  the mouse or pressing keyboard keys just does not help. If you face this issue, maybe some of these suggestions I have made here, may help you.

Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player; the computer immediately stops what it’s doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.

Windows will not wake up from Sleep Mode

1] Make sure that all your device drivers are up-to-date. If not, then update your drivers.
2] Use Windows Power Troubleshooter and see if it is able to diagnose and fix your problem automatically.
2] Start Windows in Clean Boot State and see if problem disappears. If so then some program or process is interfering with resumption from Sleep. Try to identify the process.
3] For your Keyboard and Mouse, ensure that the Allow this device to wake the computer setting is checked.
You will see this setting in the devices Properties box, under Power Management tab.
4] Open an elevated command prompt window, type the following command and hit Enter:
powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
This will list devices that are currently configured to wake the computer from any sleep state.
Next run:
powercfg -lastwake
This will give you information about the event that woke the computer from the last sleep transition.

For your Power Plan, change the setting to Off.
Hope something helps!
