Since installing a recent windows update I have not been able to put my computer in sleep or hibernate mode. Instead of stopping windows, my system only stops the signal to my monitor and keeps running so when I move my mouse the signal continues. Fortunately, it still shuts down, but it makes time spent between cessions with windows increase as I must shut down and boot up each time. I'd rather not pay $60 for Microsoft to listen to me. Here are the details for the update. Is anyone else having this problem? Has it been resolved?
