Howto fix: Windows 10 freezes and lags after sleep
For some time I was plagued by a little, but rather annoying problem on my Windows 10 PC. Once the computer woke up from sleep mode, it freezes several times per minute for a few seconds. Explorer windows open slowly, websites won’t load and the sound drops out. The mouse was still responsive.
I am not alone with this problem, because I have found several forum threads during my research, where users complaint about this problem. However, I found the solution for this problem, but only after a very long search.
Refine the problem
In almost all forums it was suggested to upgrade the drivers of all hardware, update to a newer BIOS version and/or completely reinstall Windows. However, my drivers have all been updated and also for the BIOS there was no update. A new and clean Windows installation was not an option for me.
