All apps closes after xps goes to sleep

I am not sure if this is intentional but everytime my xps goes to sleep on its own after inactivity (currently set at 5 mins), when I wake up the laptop all my tabs/apps are closed. Why is this happening? Is it a setting that I've missed?

Please help. I have the xps 13 9370. Just got it last month.

Re: All apps closes after xps goes to sleep

Hi Avathy,


Thanks for posting.  Apologies that your system is not performing as expected.


This may be caused by a display driver issue.  You could check those to see if they're up to date.  You may wish to check and see if there is a hardware issue as well.  Please run the Dell Support Assist.  Make a note of any error messages encountered and post back.  If there are none, then most likely it may be a driver or a software issue.


Here is information from the Windows Forum you may find helpful:

Re: All apps closes after xps goes to sleep

I'm having the same issue on a Dell XPS 15 7590 32/1TB OLED.

I've tried a number of fixes I found around the web, but none of them appear to be working. I've updated display drivers (both the Intel and the NVidea), run a hardware scan, I've Reset Mail and Calendar just to fun - but that didn't work for them...

I'm at a complete loss as to how to proceed. I just defected from Mac to Windows for this specific machine and the fact that when I wake it up I can't immediately pick up where I left off is making me start to regret my decision.

I've spent quite a bit of time getting everything installed and the system running the way I want (personalization options), I don't want to have to wipe and reinstall from scratch to fix it.

Any other suggestions?

Thank you so much.
