I have an old Dell E6320, courtesy of my brother but I have just found out it isn’t Win 10 compatible which is a shame. Unfortunately, I only found that out AFTER I upgraded it to an SSD, 8Gb RAM and installed the latest version of Win 10 (64bit, clean install). I also updated it to the latest BIOS (A19, it was A02 when Win 10 was installed) and as many drivers as appear to work from the Dell website (probably not the best idea I’ve ever had with hindsight).
Broadly speaking it does work but it won’t sleep either by start menu or shutting the laptop lid. If I could resolve that I would be laughing … it’s a reasonable spec now as it has an i5 CPU.
Best guess is there’s no real solution however I have a couple more things to try yet:
- Set the BIOS to default values.
- Reinstall the OS with the new BIOS.
- Install Linux or Windows 8 (not my preferred option).
Anyone got any other ideas?

Have you had a good look at the power management settings in the BIOS?

Good suggestion and I have now but it doesn’t seem to make a difference. I will try a rebuild later tonight.

OK, tried that, adjusted to screen off in 2 mins, sleep in 5 … screen display goes dark on time but the system won’t sleep.

Perhaps the hardware does not support the way that Win 10 initiates sleep mode.
