        Good Afternoon All

        Have got Desktop PC running Windows 10 Home 20H2.

        During last few weeks the computer is exhibiting a strange and irritating new event :-

        When awaking the computer from sleep it returns immediately to the screen last used before sleep but this screen is frozen and does not respond to the mouse or any keys on the keyboard.

        I can get it to respond by clicking on the upwards arrow  (^) in the notification are of the taskbar but find this a bit of an irritation and would like to fix the problem so I don’t have to do this – can anyone help me please?

        Have done a bit of ‘google’ research but with notable lack of success.

        Have put in a screensaver to operate on a 5 minute delay and the problem does not happen when opening up the computer after using this.

        My power settings now set are shown in the attached images.
