My System Specs


I have the same problem. My computer doesn't go to sleep (folding 24/7) however I did have it set to turn off the monitor after 10mins. Sometimes it would come back on again, but other times (typically after a long period of having the monitor off - i.e. overnight) it wouldn't respond unless I did a hard reset.

I solved it by changing the settings so that my monitor never automatically turns off, so I just have to remember to manually turn off my monitor when leaving for work/bed. It seems to have solved the problem, even though it's a stop-gap solution.

I would dearly like to know why this is happening. My computer is coming off of a fresh windows install (although it did it even before I re-installed) and all my drivers are up to date. (AMD 12.4 I believe)
