HP Notebook - 14-an013nr (ENERGY STAR)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

After recently updating Windows 10, my laptop will not recover after going into sleep mode. I have tried EVERYTHING that is suggested to me, including a new power plan, but nothing seems to work.  Every time it goes into sleep, I have to turn it off and then on again. Help!!!

Why should you install the update ?


Quote: "

Updating the BIOS is recommended as standard maintenance of the computer. It can also help resolve the following issues:

      • An available BIOS update resolves a specific issue or improves computer performance.
      • The current BIOS does not support a hardware component or a Windows upgrade.
      • HP Support recommends installing a specific BIOS update.




(4Let BIOS be installed until it's completely done !

(5Test your notebook

I went ahead and installed the BIOS update as you suggested. I let it go through the entire cycle. 


I tested my laptop by manually putting it into Sleep and once again, no recovery what so ever. I have to hard reboot the laptop in order to get it back up and running.

Hello @cmrolfe 


Your notebook model basically cannot handle Sleep or Hibernation.

This is combined problem of hardware and BIOS.

I have tried disabling the sleep mode. If I manually try to put my laptop into sleep mode to test it, I still cannot get it to recover. I am starting to think that its a lost cause.

Hello @cmrolfe 


As I wrote before "Your notebook model basically cannot handle Sleep or Hibernation".


HP warranty valid -> Contact HP Support to request BIOS update

HP warranty expired: Disable / don't use Sleep or Hibernation.


Kind regards
