I upgraded my Envy Rove 20 over the weekend to Windows 10. Issues:
1. When the PC attempts to hibernate the power light stay iluminated and it never switches off (I've left it for 10 mins or so, all hard disk activity has finished). I have to hold down the power button to power it off, then power it up from scratch. I had load of issues with this when I upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1 and resolved them by installing the HP Wireless Button Driver v126.96.36.199. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing this. It didn't help.
2. The sound on youtube (via Microsoft Edge browser and youtube apps) is broken up and distorted.

I have read your post on how your HP Envy Rove 20 is not producing any sound, and is experiencing hibernation issues since it was upgraded to Windows 10. I would be happy to help you, but first I would encourage you to post your product number for your computer. Below is a is an HP Support document that will demonstrate how to find your computer's product number.
In the meantime, I also suggest performing any missed Windows Updates (important and optional) to ensure your system is installed with the latest supported software.
Please re-post with the results of your troubleshooting, as well as the requested information above. I look forward to your reply!

I decided to give Win 10 another go as there were a few new drivers available from HP for my device. I've installed all the Windows Updates and latest HP drivers.
The results are better than first time around. The sound issue is sorted (I actually think this was a problem with Hyper which is a YouTube app and not the sound drivers).
The hibernation problem is now improved, but not sorted. This is the behavior:
- If I click Start -> Hiberbate it hibernates OK, and resumes OK
- If I let the system Hibernate with the timer, it hangs during hibernation, and never powers off. I have to then long-press the power button to power it off, then power it on as normal.
The main difference is that with 2 it goes to 'Sleep' mode first (this bit works fine) then hibernate, whereas 1 skips 'Sleep' mode.
So my conclusion is that there's an issue going from 'Sleep' to 'Hibernate'.
Things I've tried:
- Using battery vs plugged in: Made no difference
- Resetting the power scheme defaults: Made no difference
My next test is to try bypasssing sleep altogether by stting the timers to:
- Sleep after 10 mins
- Hibernate after 1 min
Any other ideas welcome as always.
