Dell XPS 15 9570 not going to sleep

I did a clean install on my refurbished XPS 15 right when I received it. When I close the lid or hit the power button my display turns off but the fans keep running. They stop for a second and then rev back up with the screen off. It doens't go to sleep though. This only happens when the power is connected. It does go to sleep on battery power but as soon as I plug the power in it wakes up.
Specs: 8750H, 16gb Ram, 512gb SSD, 1050Ti

Thank you for your message. Have you changed the power manager settings to check if the system goes to sleep when the adapter is connected?


What is the BIOS version installed?

Re: Dell XPS 15 9570 not going to sleep

I experienced a similar issue. Even when using battery, my 9570 can't sleep. 

You can enter ‘powercfg -a’ in your cmd to check if S3 mode is aviliable.

If it isn't, you can enable it by banning S0 mode. The fllowing steps can help you:

1. run regedit

2. find this path  \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power

3. set CsEnabled as 0

4. reboot your laptop

A side effect is that you can only wake your laptop by opening lid or pressing power button now.

Thank you! It works great! 
I hate modern standby.

I can confirm that this solution works as of 5/3/2019 and with the latest Dell firmware 1.10 (Apr 30 2019) and the latest Windows 10.

Thank you very much -- my laptop now goes into traditional sleep and all the fans shut off.
