Whether it is in Windows 10 Windows 7, there is a function to turn off the screen automatically and sleep automatically. Generally, when your computer is not operated for a period of time, the system will default to turn off the screen, or go to sleep. The purpose of this feature is to save the computer's power consumption, but it has caused some users (especially laptop users) some trouble.

Their Windows 10 laptops cannot be woken up after a period of automatic black screen, and they can only force the system to restart. If you encounter such a situation, how to solve it?
