And another thing, what is up with Win 10 devouring battery life in sleep mode??
Looking through Windows forums there are a billion complaints about it, but as usual - nothing useful from the M$ forum staff.
On many occasions we are sitting in the living room, the wives laptop is closed and not in use for hours - when it just springs to life and the cooling fan is in high gear. I have noticed several times when I open it up, several things happen -
A) The screen will not activate, you can hit any key(s) - nothing. OR -
B) You login but then it immediately soft reboots. OR -
C) You successfully login but the computer is very laggy for a good minute or two.
Just what the hell is M$ doing to a laptop that is not activated, and whatever programs are using so much memory that it forces the cooling fans to blow full steam, and ultimately will eat the battery life even to the point of not being able to power up without plugged in.
If Win10 ever turns on my PC after I've shut it down, I'll probably immediately switch to 7.
Keep that Win 7 disc ready.........
I'm planning on keeping my new PC almost entirely for games, at least for now. I'll use my second PC for school/web browsing/messing around. Hopefully that will limit the issues, but I won't be devastated if I have to go to 7 on the main.
