Windows 10 won’t wake up from sleep after installing Creators Update [Fix]
The Windows 10 Creators Update is finally here. Although we’re still almost a week away from the official release, there are some users who already managed to install the new update through Early Access.
Even though the new update is as young as it can be, there are already some issues bothering users who installed it. One of the most annoying ones t is the problem that causes Windows to randomly wake up from sleep mode.
We remind you that this was a problem in the Anniversary Update as well. So, the majority of solutions that users applied then are still relevant now. In case you’re experiencing similar issues, check out this article for possible workarounds.
