So far so good, please with the mediocre priced GeForce GTX 960, but wonder if this is normal ?
PROBLEM: Cannot put computer to sleep, ever, no matter what I put setting: Must always shutdown.

NO GRAPHICS AMP CONNECTED:
WINDOWS PWER BUTTON: SHUTDOWN, RESTART, SLEEP

WITH GRAPHIC AMPLIFIER CONNECTED:
WINDOWS PWER BUTTON: SHUTDOWN, RESTART, no other options

DELL PRECISION 6500 AT OFFICE
WINDOWS PWER BUTTON: SHUTDOWN, RESTART, SLEEP, HIBERNATE

All systems running Windows 10 Pro/64, all updates to all drivers, etc.

Anyone have this configuration, would be interested in your results.

Yes, same behavior. I'd imagine it has to do with the inability on some level to also put the amp/gpu into a sleep state.

I pass this along to you since Alienware unable to solve: with GPU installed unable to load latest firmware, firmware loaded fine with 17R3 alone. Thanks reply.
