Issues When the System is Sleeping or Waking

Symptom:

Your system sometimes restarts while sleeping or waking up.

Problem:

This is caused by manipulating the connected HDMI output while your system is asleep.

Workaround:

While your system is asleep, don’t change the HDMI source on your monitor, switch out HDMI cables, or turn off your monitor.

If your sleep Display setting is configured to No Signal, try the following to avoid these issues:

  • Turn off the input auto-select feature on your monitor.
  • Set the sleep Display setting to Black.
  • Disable sleep mode on your system by setting Time Before System Goes to Sleep to Off.
