My computer was working perfectly under Windows 10 but after a system update from Microsoft it seems to be locked in sleep mode and will not restart after being powered down. Can anyone help me? Many thanks in advance.

Hello David SMP --
My computer woke up suddenly all by itself and I left it on until a power outage last night turned it off. Once again, when I try to start the computer it seems to go straight into Sleep mode. I tried a hard reset and it does no good.
I am totally stuck unless/until the computer decides on its own to wake up. This is unsatisfactory, needless to say. Please advise me on how I should proceed.
I cannot update drivers if I can't get into the computer at all. There must be something beyond the hard reset I can do to get back on the road.
If someone other than David SMP would like to advise me, I'd be very grateful since I don't know if David will see this response.
THANKS .. John
