I have an annoying problem. Last week I opened up my pc to clean the parts and dust inside the machine. I took it a little bit further and took out every part individually, out of curiosity. Anyway, I reassembled the computer and opened it up, there was no problem. Then I made the driver update for my Nvidia graphic card. I restarted, no problem. However the next day the problems started, after I shut down the machine. The problems are:
- The power button doesn't work after shutting down the computer. To start the machine, I have to unplug the power cable, wait about ten seconds and plug it back. Then the power button works.
- Not the computer but monitor doesn't wake up after sleep, and I have to reset the computer twice. After the first reset, the computer starts again, I can see the boot screen but Windows doesn't come up. I have to restart again and precisely have to wait until the end of first reboot. During the second reboot the Windows asks if I want to continue from the saved session or delete the save point and start new.
I checked out some advices, it seems to be there are many problems such as mine. I did some tweaks in the power management section but didn't quite work.
I remember having the second issue after an Nvidia driver update. I had solved it by rolling back the update. But the first issue is something new.
What can I do?
Thanks for reading and advices in advance.

Alright, I followed the exact steps you mentioned but both problems persists:
- Deleted the Nvidia driver from Control Panel and didn't restart
- Deleted everything about Nvidia from driver fusion and restarted
- Installed the latest Nvidia driver from Nvidia's website with custom installation, installed only the display driver, not even PhysX.
I don't know if it helps in any way but I have two monitors. When I press a keyboard button to wake computer up one of the monitors stay in standby while the other only wakes up but don't show desktop, and the keyboard turns offline afterwards.
I may try rolling the driver update back again to one that works with no problem, but I want to keep this option as my final solution.
