HP Envy impossible to power-off

HP Envy (2015)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


Last week I had to change the Hard-disk (due to failure) and to re-install the OS and everything from scratch.

From then, when I use the Power button or the Screen close funtion to put the computer to sleep mode, the light on the Power button remains on, and there is nothing to do to re-start.

I do have to force the Power Off (power button pressed for 7 seconds) and then restart.


On Parameters, the sleep mode is set to 5 min resp.10 min depending on if working on battery or not.


In the screen Power Button Action the first one "Quick restart is not set"


Any idea? Thanks

Try restoring the BIOS to default and check if it helps.
