I am running an Optiplex 980 with 12GB ram, i7 processor. I am using the on board video; about 4 times out of 10, the system will not wake up using the mouse or keyboard. I have to push power button in and it boots. An led is blinking which I think means sleep mode.
Any suggestion to troubleshoot this?
Thank you

Are you running all of the latest system drivers as well as the latest BIOS for your PC?

Thanks for the reply. I went to Dell support and had them scan my pc for needed updates and found that I needed a bios update from 2018. Mine was 2011 so I now have installed the update. I will see if that fixes my issue...Thanks again..

If that doesn't solve your problem then go into power options and choose high performance
