I recently got some new hardware to upgrade my PC, i did a fresh Win10 install. With my previous hardware and Win10 install i could put the PC into Sleep mode and resume from Sleep without any issue.

Now with my new hardware and Win10 install i noticed sometimes when i wake from Sleep MSI Afterburner has the GPU fans at 0% instead of the 30% that i have them set to be at.
Also recently the fan control totally broke so i had to reinstall the Nvidia driver to be able to make the GPU fans increase at all past 30%.

I have had a PC in the past that also acted weird after waking from Sleep which made me avoid using it, now my latest build is not operating 100% when waking from Sleep, is there any reason that my PC is having issues when waking, am i unlucky, is using Sleep mode a roll of the dice if it will actually work trouble free? Lucky i have nvme so i guess i will Shutdown each time.
