Windows 10 boot up issues

Ever since upgrading to Windows 10 from Win 7 Pro I have been having issues with rebooting. When I leave the office I dont power down, I just put my machine to sleep so that when I get home I can carry on working. With win 7 there was no issue with this, now with windows 10, when I try "Wake up" my laptop goes into a boot cycle as if I requested it to restart. The reboot takes about 15 -30 min every time. I have tried to find a solution for the issue but cant find anything.

I recently discovered that windows 10 has issues with AMD Radeon graphic cards but my drivers are up to date so im note sure what the issue can be. I have had issues with my graphic card in the past.

Im on the brink on formatting and going back to windows 7.

If anyone can give me some guidance on how to fix this issue I'll appreciate it.

The thing is that sleep over a long period

Can be unreliable irregardless of the operating system. I'd try HIBERNATE next.

But 15 to 30 minute boot times is telling.

For example my 2006 Dell Inspiron e1505 with 2GB RAM, CoreDuo CPU, and 120GB SSD boots from cold in 33 seconds to when I get a google search result. That's all that way from power off to a web page result in 33 seconds.

I would have to guess your PC is much older and far worse than my oldest laptop?

PC is not that old

In reply to: The thing is that sleep over a long period

Thanks for the reply. My machine is 5 years old this year, bought in 2011. Core i5 8GB RAM 500GB HDD.

When running windows 7 it was perfect, its ever since I upgraded to windows 10. Happened again this morning from complete shut down. Something is causing the boot it get stuck and I have no idea what.

While I would expect that to boot much faster

In reply to: PC is not that old

I don't have any deep detail to work with. I use my old tank of a laptop as an example when folk tell me that Windows 10 causes slow boots.

The age could have a HDD that is on it's last days which is a common slow boot cause I run into. Windows 7 slow boot troubleshooting was done quite often and what you did then is pretty much the same as today. finds priors.

I wish it was always the same thing but it hasn't turned out that way. One time you'll have a HDD issue, then next a Torrent use and the next something else. Not many repeats.
