so i had seen this happen once or twice over the years, but now its occurring every time.

my PC is set to go to sleep after 4 hours, and when it does, and i wake it back up, it won't output a signal to the monitor. it all sounds like its working as normal but no video signal and the only thing i can do is hold the power button down until it shuts down and cycle it back up- which is annoying because i have an asus mobo so every time you do this (if you've changed anything in BIOS) you get the stupid "Overclocking setup has FAILED!" and you have to press F1 to go into and exit bios to get back to windows.

i even tried a soft reset by pressing the reset button but that doesn't fix the problem; you *have* to power the pc all the way down to get around this.

windows 10 64bit, specs are in sig, nothing has changed in a long time so i'm at a loss as to what is causing this

My computer randomly started doing this at one point. Tried a bunch of s*** but nothing fixed it until I nuked the Windows install and started over.

Re-install Windows and disable sleep/hybrid sleep and never use it again.

Had problems like that with most of my Windows PC's from back to... maybe XP ,or 95? Or was it stand by mode in those days...? Anyway!

Since then (oh SOO long ago), every time I get a new version of Windows, I disable sleep mode. And, as you can guess, I haven't had those problems again (even thought, yeah, my PC doesn't sleep anymore! )

Oh, if Windows works until the sleep, there is no need to reinstall... Hope this helps!

it's probably something you installed recently that isn't playing nice with sleep. the easy way to fix would be a reinstall of Windows.

Have you tried just turning the monitor off and on, or switching the input back and forth? Some monitors will automatically switch between input sources, and for some reason coming back from sleep doesn't always trigger the monitor to switch. Happens to me if I have a console or something plugged into HDMI 2 on my monitor. But as soon as I unplug HDMI 2, and it stops trying to detect input sources, it doesn't do it anymore.

Just don't use sleep mode. It's worthless anyway, especially if you have an SSD (and you do).

can you elaborate why a SSD obsolesces sleep mode? the boot time makes it irrelevant? its still significantly faster to load from sleep than it is from powered off, even with the quick boot or whatever in the bios

Waking from hibernate is just as fast as waking from sleep, and you don't risk losing data from a power outage.
