Windows 7: New SSD and settings causing PC to wake immediately after Sleep

New SSD and settings causing PC to wake immediately after Sleep

Sorry for another post (you guys are always helpful).
I just bought a new Samsung 850 SSD and cloned my Windows 7 OS (all went perfectly). Two issues, one is that I configured my pc to reflect the nature of a SSD by adjusting Virtual memory settings, turning off Hibernation, etc. I was nervous about wearing out the SSD. These are virtually the only changes I have made and now the PC awakes almost immediately after I put it to sleep.

I first used the Samsung Magician software to configure the OS and also tried manual settings using this article.
Storage talk: Understanding your solid-state drive - CNET

Could it be that after setting the Virtual memory to a smaller size, windows cannot sleep anymore? Ive tried all the various other basics like editing the advanced sleep options, disabling wake timers etc. Thoughts?

Second issue is that my mapped drives from a NAS (synology) show the "red X" after a restart/reboot? If I click on them, they load right up! Ironically one out of the 3 mapped folders loads perfectly, the other 2 do not???

I can't comment on the mapped drive issue, but check that something hasn't altered this setting:

Sometimes an update, or new software can mess up the "Wake on LAN" feature. It should be turned off if you want to put your PC to sleep. Otherwise it will wake up constantly.

Try that and see if it works.

Thank you for the reply. I did try changing those settings and it will sleep however I need those on being I use a WOL app to fire up my pc quite often. Prior to the SSD the sleep function worked flawlessly.
