Default new win10 update really crappy LOL

Looks like Microsoft did a major update. Mine shows version 1703 build 15063.413 (Win 10 home). Oddly it applied to both my dell machines - one desktop tower and one laptop. The desktop seem to work fine; no issues. The laptop has a hard time coming back from just being idle. i.e. screen freezes, windows don't propagate correctly, etc. cntl-alt-del works just fine and I can see how many windows and what app are open via alt-tab.

I have to restart to make it work. Tower doesn't have this issue though. Wonder if it's that time of the year I have to do a a fresh install again?

Intel and Nvidia drivers updated after the upgrade too. Thought it's be a video thing since the screen is not refreshing correctly. I use dual monitors.

The *only* good thing about this update is it fixed this 1 yr old issue I had. I can actually play full screen in youtube w/o having to disable the intel card from device manager.

Shut off hibernate. If it continues, shut off sleep. Are you using fastboot for WinX? If so, that might cause the problem with the new update. Turn it off, do a couple reboots, turn it back on again. That might fix the problem.

Go into your advanced power settings, an set it for performance under "other" power options. See if the problem persists. You can always change it back.

You can Ctrl-Alt-Del, shut off, and restart explorer from task manager without loosing work for now, instead of rebooting.

I actually just let it idle. I disable hibernate and sleep for both on power or on battery. Same for the desktop (always on).

I 'm not using fastboot. guess i can try the other power profiles, or create a new one. i just make sure I don't have docs open or if they are, it's something like google doc so i odn't lose anything (like a notepad, which hits me here and there but only because i like zero format of notepad).
