Sleep failures

Hi there,

following updating my bios due to multiple bsod, everything appears fine until i put my pc into sleep mode.

When i wake it from sleep mode i get a black screen - no curser, no dmp files, keyboard and mouse light up, but nothing else. Cannot use the restart button nor the power button as they do nothing.
All drivers up to date, ssd tweaked and optimised using the links in this forum.
Bios appears fine, all settings how they were prior to update -when sleep mode isnt used no issues with shut down, restart etc.

Its an odd one. I have searched for an answer but found nothing similar to my issue.
Specs are as below.

Many thanks for your time.

Might be as simple as a video driver re-install.
