On my desktop computer I have a glitch that when the computer goes to sleep and then wakes up, the videocard produces artifacts (very slow update to changes, so you see heavy tearing in videogames or fast videos)

Since it works quite well otherwise my wish would be to disable sleep and only use hibernation
Is that achievable?

Additional info:

  • windows 10 version: 2004 (19041.264)
  • I don't have an "hybrid sleep" option in my Windows Power Options
  • 2
    In Advanced Power Options, set Sleep to Never and then enable Hibernate to an interval.

  • it did. I thought pc went to sleep and then AFTER it went to hibernate. Not that those options were indipendent from each other

Go to Advanced Power Options and set Sleep to Never. Then enable Hibernate to an interval that works for you or hibernate from the Start button on demand.


Go to power options in Control Panel, change when the computer sleeps and set to never.
