I am new to the forum so hello and hoping my new friends can help me out here. Up until a week ago, when pc was idle, the screen want blank, computer light blinking green on and off, peacefully in sleep mode just the way I liked it. Now, however, the screen is blank but the computer light is no longer blinking, fans are on, doesn't appear to be in sleep mode anymore. Here is what I have tried so far:
powercfg /requests I shut down everything and make sure it returns nothing, still no sleep.
powercfg -devicequery wake_armed Keyboard and Mouse return, but they were like this when it was working.
powercfg -lastwake Value is '0', theorizing cause it never goes to sleep.
powercfg -energy I'll be honest, ran two of these and I can't interpret them real well, but nothing appears out of the ordinary.
Device Manager I went into each on that had a power management option and made sure it was set so as to "not allow" device to wake up system.
Manually enter sleep mode Screen goes blank, move mouse around, have log in screen, but never goes to sleep, more like resting
Virus Scans Just for the heck of it bitdefender, malware bytes, rootkill programs, etc., nothing of substance turned up, so I think I am fine here too.
Please help. Thanks.
