I have exactly the same problem, of course with DELL - all other notebooks I use (HP, Lenovo, Asus) do NOT have such problem. I've spent a few days now and lost a lot of time and nerves - it just sucks, after the latest Win10 update, the bloody DELL precision cannot sleep, as of the idiotic "Standby (S0 Low Power Idle) Network Connected" and "Standby (S3) This standby state is disabled when S0 low power idle is supported." The only solution: I'll never buy another DELL again. "S0" should be called "DELL Insomnia" really, as it keeps the notebook running, going overheated and draining the battery empty - it's pretty dangerous if this happens in a closed backback, it could burn as it's overheated as hell in the sommer.
Good lord, I never thought someone else would have the same experience as me! My laptop rarely ever goes to sleep properly. It's supposed to go to sleep, and then hibernate after a certain amount of time has elapsed. And so everytime I leave my laptop I have to remember to hibernate it. I'm only human though so I might forget to hibernate it or I might think that I won't be gone for long.
And you know what happens to this Dell Inspiron laptop when it doesn't sleep? A BSOD! Power state failure. And to think that Windows 10 version 2004 started this. This has been happening to me at least once a month this year (when I got this laptop). Only today when it happened again did I actually go into event viewer. I found some error to do with modern standby. I Googled a few queries and landed here. I don't know who to blame, Dell or Microsoft. I'm just frustrated.
