    There are some who would say that Windows 10 is just a better way of running the Command Prompt window!

    Look at it from the positive point of view - think how long you'd have had to wait to get Windows 7 Updates to download!
    You got off lightly... :cool:

    I also found on two laptops at least that Bluetooth (the Toshiba Bluetooth stack, and WIDCOMM software) was deleted summarily at the first proper startup of Windows 10.

    I suspect that restoring...
  5. Mixed results with upgrades from Windows 7

    In my pre-end-July batch of computer updates from Windows 7 Pro and Home, 32-bit and 64-bit, desktop and laptop, I have had mixed results:

    a) two machines, a Medion desktop and a Dell Optiplex...

    I think this is where I disable sleep state, and, when I get some time, look at Hibernate instead. Shutdown is adequate for my purtposes.
  7. I changed the Sleep state to S1, and disabled...

    I changed the Sleep state to S1, and disabled "Wake on pattern match" (no obvious connection), and neither of those enabled a Wake-on-LAN to happen when the Optiplexes were put to Sleep...

    'nother thing to check - I always have it set to S3. Thanks, Jerry!

    Precisely what you show! Remember that for me, Wake on LAN works when the Windows 10 Optiplexes are in the shutdown state.

    Having Fast Startup on or off doesn't seem to make any difference to my Wake on LAN problem - WoL works when the Optiplexes are shut-down, but not when in sleep mode.

    I've updated both BIOSes, and found that Dell doesn't have any new drivers for Windows 10 for the Optiplex 755 and 760. I also observe that the NICs are the standard Intel Gigabit ones, for which...

    I updated these PCs to Windows 10 yesterday, and kept Checking for Updates, so I think that side should be OK.

    All the (motherboard) NIC power settings seem fine to me.

    I can't say which...
  13. Wake on LAN works for Dell Optiplexes when they are shut down but not when sleeping

    These Dell Optiplexes (755, 760) used to Wake on LAN successfully in Windows 7 Pro from both the shutdown state and sleep/hibernate state.

    Now upgraded to Windows 10 Pro, I find that Wake-on-LAN...

    It often can, if you use a third-party program like EaseUS Partition Manager. I usually run a defragmenter first in the hope of moving errant files from near the back of the partition, and they can...

    Is this a US-only recipe, since I recognise only about half the brand names?

    My PreFetch folder is 49 MB in size - half of which is ReadyBoot.

    Personally, I would leave Windows Prefetch and Recent Items alone, to enable them to continue to do what Microsoft designed them for!

    Temporary files, wherever located, are fair game for removal.
