My laptop will not wake up from Sleep mode. When it first goes to Sleep the power button flashes but after a while the power light stays on and touching the keys or mouse pad will not wake up the system. I have to do a hard shut down to get it to start again.
In Settings, I have sleep set for 10 minutes on battery and 15 on power.
Hi@asawyer1, Welcome to the HP Support Community! Request you to follow the below troubleshooting steps.
Please follow the below steps:
Step 1: Enabling the Keyboard in Windows
Skip this step if the computer does not enter sleep mode or if the computer wakes unexpectedly.
Follow these steps to enable your keyboard to wake your computer from sleep mode:
In Windows, search for and open the Device Manager.
Click the arrow next to Keyboards and double-click the name of your keyboard.
If the Power Management tab is available, proceed to the next step.
If the Power Management tab is not available, click the Change Settings button if it appears below the Device status box. The same Keyboard Properties window opens with the Power Management tab available.
If you are prompted for an Administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Click the Power Management tab and make sure that the box next to Allow this device to wake the computer is checked.
Click OK, and then test to make sure that the keyboard can now wake the computer. If the computer still cannot wake from sleep mode, continue using these steps.
