Bounty: 50

I am unable to update Windows. When Windows Update tries to run, I get an error message that has a “Fix issues” button.

Pressing that brings up a process that eventually gives the error message, “We couldn’t update the system reserved partition.”

It turns out I didn’t have a System Reserved partition. I figured it might work to create it, so I did, using Option 1 from this link. Now my partitions look like this, but I still get the same error as above.

Most of the information surrounding this error refers to increasing the available space on the System Reserved partition, but as the screenshot shows, there’s plenty of space on the partition.

How can I debug this update error?

#StackBounty: #windows #windows-10 #sleep #hibernate #group-policy Windows 10 can't go to sleep. Sleet states S1-S3 are not available

Bounty: 50

I have a windows 10 desktop machine and I think that I disabled the “sleep” sometime in the past. However, now I want to enable it again and I just can’t figure out how to do it.

First of all. Windows doesn’t think that sleeping is an option at all. Only hibernation.

   C:Windowssystem32>powercfg /A
   The following sleep states are available on this system:
    Hibernate
    Fast Startup

The following sleep states are not available on this system:
    Standby (S1)
        The system firmware does not support this standby state.

    Standby (S2)
        The system firmware does not support this standby state.

    Standby (S3)
        The system firmware does not support this standby state.

    Standby (S0 Low Power Idle)
        The system firmware does not support this standby state.

    Hybrid Sleep
        Standby (S3) is not available.

I have checked the group policy, and it looks fine:

enter image description here

I’ve also checked the registry database, and as far as I can see it looks as it should:

The only thing I’ve changed here is that I’ve disabled RTCWAKE (bd3b718a-0680-4d9d-8ab2-e1d2b4ac806d) because my computer was starting up in the middle of the night and not shutting down again. Which was pretty annoying.

enter image description here

As far as I can see there is nothing which is misconfigured in the BIOS, but I can of course be wrong.

Here is a link to my complete current setup: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/4352121

If anyone has any idea of why windows doesn’t think the various sleep states are available please let me know.

If it’s any help I have a weak memory of trying to disable the normal sleep sates using group policy. Perhaps there sis some other setting in there?

Thank you!
