Looks like a common issue, once I upgraded the os, neither sleep nor hibernate is stable, and even cold shutting down will sometimes freeze. I tried a bunch of fixes, the one that worked for me was rolling back the mei driver

Download the older MEI (Management Engine Interface) version 9 or 10

http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp66001-66500/sp66228.exe.

That link is to a driver that comes from the hp site, I'm not sure it will work on all computers, if not just get to your manufacturer's site and find the mei driver version 9 or 10

Make sure you create a restore point, install, you'll get a warning a more current driver exists, accept that warning and install anyway


Once installed you have to prevent windows from updating this driver so make sure you hide the mei driver update when it appears again

I find DUMO very useful for making sure my drivers are up to date -- not so much for updating, but telling me there is an update!

Problem with that, the most recent driver is what breaks the box, for those with this problem they probably need the old driver rather then the new one

It might seem a no-brainer when you’re asked about the meal of fishes. But, you would really feel excited to know the food habits of different species. Before going deep into the in-depth information, you should know about the types of fishes according to their food habit. if you want to know about What do Fish Eat Please go this site. hardenshoes.com/what-do-fish-eat

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
