    Lightbulb X299-XE Gaming Fall Creators (1709) Won't/Can't Sleep


    I just resolved an issue I had been having for about 3 weeks with my new build and wanted to share with everyone. In order for my computer to sleep I had to disable Hibernate using the command prompt from administrative level: powercfg.exe /hibernate off.

    Here is a mostly complete list of things I am using and had done up to this point:

    Mobo: Strix X299-XE gaming
    CPU: i7-7820X
    RAM: 32GB (16Gx2) GSkill TridentZ 3200
    SSDs: Raid 0, 2X Samsung 850 EVO
    GPU: Strix 1080TI

    Fresh install of Windows1709 from DVD ISO Windows Media Creation tool
    Installed all the up to date drivers and BIOS from ASUS website (BIOS Version 1004)
    Windows was completely updated
    admin cmd prompt -> input "Sfc/scannow" displayed errors and was unable to resolve
    Downloading a new ISO from within Windows, then telling it to save all my files and apps but refresh, and included updates with refresh
    admin cmd prompt -> input "Sfc/scannow" displayed no errors (but was still unable to sleep)
    admin cmd prompt -> input "powercfg.exe /hibernate off" resolved the isssue (of course Hibernate is now not an option, Microsoft is now aware of the issue and according to them they are escalating for permanent resolution)
