Random shutdowns and not recovering from standby

Hi guys,

So after resolving my WU problems (thanks again Noel) my laptop has some standby issues;

It rarely comes out of standby now, Fans roar but screen stays blank, only option is power off.

And when in standby sometimes I return to it and it has turned off.

Where to start?

TIA

Can you take a look at your power settings and see what they are set to?

Have you tried the following?
Power Plan - Restore Default Settings

Power Plan Settings - Change

I'm not to familiar with dumps. Will have to look into getting more help. I'll see if I can get someone else involved
