    Win 10 sleep problems.

    Since updating from Win 7 to Win 10 on my desktop I have had multiple problems. The most annoying problem at the moment is when I put the computer in the sleep mode, it will not wake up. It sounds like the computer is restarting but the screen remains black. The only way to get back to my desktop is to physically turn off the computer at the power switch and then reboot. Of course this takes ages and is not ideal. I have tried various suggestions made from searching the internet but none of them work. Any suggestions?
