After the fall creators update when ever I try to put the PC into hibernation the screen turns black as usual but after a while it goes back to the lock screen , Also sleep and shutdown won't work unless I disable hibernation & hybrid shutdown. when I tried hibernating the PC using the following command "shutdown /h" the same thing happens with the following message : "Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.(1450)".

I used to have the same issue with the insiders build leading to the fall creators update and now I'm using a freshly installed version of the fall creators update with nothing installed but the GPU driver "R9 390x" but still getting the same thing.

  • Microsoft has a KB introducing the same error message, you could refer to their registry method to check result. support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/304101/…

Two things to try:

  1. Disable Hyper-V if it is enabled. From an administrator command prompt,

    bcdedit /set {current} hypervisorlaunchtype off

    (MS documentation; use bcdedit with no arguments to check the current setting) or just remove Hyper-V altogether (Control Panel/Programs/Turn Windows features on or off). If you actually need Hyper-V this is not really a solution...

  2. If you're using a recent model Dell laptop, reset the Real Time Clock (see this thread).

Found this thread that solved exactly the same problem: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/79e2eb35-bc07-4975-9e83-070f1d732a9e/unable-to-hibernate-after-fall-creators-update?forum=win10itprogeneral

I and the users in that thread all seem to have HP machines. The fix requires a BIOS configuration change: under the advanced page > secureboot configuration change "legacy support enable and secure boot disable" to "legacy support disable and secueboot enable (or secureboot can remain disabled)".
