Windows 8 won’t wake up from sleep mode & Power Off goes into sleep mode after BIOS update

 won’t wake up from sleep mode – Microsoft Community.

Apparently this is a common issue with Windows 8. Here is what I know from my own experience:

windows 8 won't wake up from sleep mode - Microsoft Community

  • It does not help to upgrade to Windows 8.1
  • No Windows Update has fixed this issue
  • The problem seemed to start about 2 months after I bought the laptop, after a BIOS update (update must have been around October 2013).
  • Tech support was not able to fix it, even after trying different driver configurations and a BIOS rollback.

They want me to send it in, but I have online classes and need my laptop until  April. Guess I’ll try to see if disabling sleep mode fixes these issues.
