Allowhybridsleep 9N Thumb If your computer does not start after entering the sleep mode, you may want to try this and deactivate Hybrid sleep

Desktop computers often do not start from sleep. Laptops typically do not have this type of problem.

The problem usually occurs due to the Hybrid Sleep Option, where the PC poweres down but stores your files in a file. The following tutorial will help you to get a quick solution but problems may still persist if you don’t pay close attentions. Problems arise when the Power Plan Settings AUTOMATICALLY change to a different one  (for example when using another power source)

When disabling hybrid sleep, Hibernate and Sleep should work.
