Asus VivoTab TF810C wont wake from sleep

We have a new Asus VivoTab TF810C with windows 8 on it.  After upgrading to Windows 8 Pro the Tablet will sometimes fall sleep and not wake.  The only way to get it working is to hold the power button till it reboots.

The Tablet will wake from sleep just fine.  If it is left for a longtime it will go into a Hybrid Sleep.  To prevent the Hybrid sleep you need to edit some keys in the reg.

To find the correct keys from command powercfg -QUERY > C:\power.txt open the txt with the piped in info.

you should find something like this...
Power Setting GUID: 94ac6d29-73ce-41a6-809f-6363ba21b47e (Allow hybrid sleep)
Possible Setting Index: 000
Possible Setting Friendly Name: Off
Possible Setting Index: 001
Possible Setting Friendly Name: On
Current AC Power Setting Index: 0x00000001
Current DC Power Setting Index: 0x00000001

Use the GUID to find the correct keys....

HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\control\power\powersettings\*from Query find Sleep Subgroup GUID*\*From Query find Allow Hybrid Sleep GUID*\DefaultPowerSchemeValues\*Change AC DC to “0” disabling Hybrid Sleep*

Hope this helps

Correction... a few days later the problem started backup.  I found that the upgrade from Windows 8 Home to Windows 8 Pro Media caused the sleep issues.  I reinstalled from the iso just the windows 8 pro.  This has resolved the issue.
