Webcam not working from hibernate

HP Spectre x360 w018tu
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have noticed a problem with my laptop's webcam, which stops working when starting from hibernate. But if I put it into sleep (suspend), it will be back to normal when awaking. Can this be fixed?

After applying the latest BIOS, the problem has been happening very rarely. It still happened 2 or 3 times for over a month, but it hardly affected my usage. Also I noticed when there are something attached to the laptop, USB disk, mouse, monitor, or even the charger, the problem didn't happened.

 

So I'd close the case, and wait to see if the next version of BIOS can remove the problem completely. It might also be Windows 10's problem, then HP can't do much about it. Overall I'm satisified so far with my laptop.
