Last weekend I set up a new Windows 10 Professional box. I took my old Windows 10 Professional box, put it onto another desk, and got it going without a monitor, keyboard, or mouse. It seems to be working fine, with one problem. It tends to shut down soon after no one using it. That surprises me, I thought it would stay up and running, whether anyone was using it or accessing it. (I've got a SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition database on that machine, which I want to have access to from any other machine in my home network.)
So, why is it shutting down so quickly? Or is that some sort of hibernation or sleep mode that I'm unfamiliar with?
I've got a new desktop, which I'm going to use to replace an old Windows 10 desktop. Both are running Windows 10 Professional. At this point I don't have a spare monitor, keyboard, or mouse. On the weekend it's not a problem, because I can disconnect my work laptop, to which I've got a second monitor attached to the docking station, and the mouse and keyboard are also attached to the docking station. That's fine, on the weekends.
But how about during the week, when I must have the work laptop docked to the docking station, and the mouse, keyboard and second monitor also connected to the keyboard? So, I'm wondering, can I leave the old desktop running, connected by Wi-Fi to my router, but with no mouse, keyboard, or monitor? Or must it have at least a mouse and keyboard connected to it?
I have a HP MicroServer N40L:
Windows 7 in 120G SSD as boot drive;
TWO identical 4TB disks with hardware RAID 1 set up;
Only ONE 4TB disk can be seen in Windows 7.
It's been working perfectly for almost 8 yrs.
Recently i upgraded to Windows 10 and then strange things happened:
1. Two 4TB disks cannot be recoganised in Win10, i have to treat them like a new disk, to re-format them, which is strange, but it's ok luckily i backed up everything;
2. After re-formated them and RAID 1 set up again, TWO 4TB disks appears in Windows 10. Isn't one supposed to be hidden?!
It seems like N40L Raid 1 is not working on Windows 10? Do I need a new raid driver? but i couldn't find one.
Is anyone using N40L with Win10 and hardware Raid 1? Please help!
I've had the attached appear on two of my Windows 10 machines today. The picture I captured from my laptop, which I've had for two years. What does this mean?
It's that time of year again (plus or minus a few months) for Windows owners to pour out a suitable beverage, switch on the TV (say to a cricket match in Summer) and multiplex those activities with updating Windows on one's devices.
This time round I reverted to an 'in place' upgrade using the Upgrade now button at https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10, wondering whether my shared folder setup would be destroyed as it had been in previous upgrades … but no, in general all went smoothly for:
HP Microserver N36L
HP Microserver N54L
HP Microserver Gen8 x 2
These are pure file servers running W10 Professional.
The only point to note is the continued absence of the CPU usage trace on the Gen8 Task Manager graph.
