  1. Windows 10 update breaks another major feature - but there’s a fix Microsoft's latest optional update has broken 'sleep mode' (Image credit: engadget) Windows 10 is suffering from yet another bug that's causing machines to unexpectedly wake up from sleep mode. Following the rollout of the Microsoft’s September 2020 optional update, Windows 10 users began reporting that their machine keeps waking up even when sleep mode has been enabled. “When I close the lid, press the power button, or select Sleep in
  2. A neuroscientist captivates the audience at TED 2019. Enlarge / (GERMANY OUT) Schlaflosigkeit, Frau mit Wecker (Photo by Wodicka/ullstein bild via Getty Images) Ullstein Bild | Getty Images The whole world is exhausted. And it's killing us. But particularly me. As I write this, I'm at TED 2019 in Vancouver, which is a weeklong marathon of talks and workshops and coffee meetings and experiences and demos and late-night trivia contests and networking, networking, networking. Meanwhile, I'm sick as a dog with a
  3. How to Sleep When the World Is Falling Apart It's not easy to relax in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic. But there are some simple tips and techniques that can help you get some shut-eye. Photograph: Susanne Walstrom/Getty Images Life in the Covid-19 pandemic has taken on some unpleasant and unexpected contours. Time has lost all meaning. Dreams have become assailingly vivid. That is, if you’re able to sleep at all, which many people cann
  4. The Best Weighted Blankets to Soothe Your Anxiety These accessories might not cure your anxiety or insomnia, but they can feel like a hug when you really need one. Touch, like getting a hug, releases oxytocin in your brain. This hormone contributes to our overall well-being and ability to handle stress. It's why Thundershirts help anxious pets, and it's one of the reasons we swaddle newborns. We don't always have someone to squeeze us, especially nowaday
  5. Van Geiklswijk et al describe supplemental melatonin as “a chronobiotic drug with hypnotic properties”. Using it as a pure hypnotic – a sleeping pill – is like using an AK-47 as a club to bash your enemies’ heads in. It might work, but you’re failing to appreciate the full power and subtlety available to you. Melatonin is a neurohormone produced by the pineal gland. In a normal circadian cycle, it’s lowest (undetectable, less than 1 pg/ml of blood) around the time you wake up, and stays low throughout the day. Around fifteen hours after waking, your melatonin suddenly shoots up to
  6. Understanding sleep has become increasingly important in modern society, where chronic loss of sleep has become rampant and pervasive. As evidence mounts for a correlation between lack of sleep and negative health effects, the core function of sleep remains a mystery. But in a new study publishing 12 July in the open access journal PLOS Biology, Vanessa Hill, Mimi Shirasu-Hiza and colleagues at Columbia University, New York, found that short-sleeping fruit fly mutants shared the common defect of sensitivity to acute oxidative stress, and thus that sleep supports antioxidant processes. Understa
  7. Stop Obsessing Over Sleep—Your Brain Will Thank You Worrying about sleep is perhaps the most counterproductive thing you can do, no matter how many gadgets try to tell you otherwise. Maiken Nedergaard considers herself a pragmatic woman. She’s got kids, a career, and she knows she feels better after a solid night of shut-eye. She’s also a neuroscientist at the forefront of research showing the biological value of sleep. In studies she coauthored in 2013 and 2019, she documented how during sleep, fluid washes over our brains, clearing out toxins like beta amy
  8. Whenever I plug/unplug a device it wakes up my PC which is frustrating. Such as turning my dual HDD dock on/off or connecting/disconnecting my phone. I have unchecked all the "allow this device to wake the computer" I could even though my dock and phone don't have those options in Device Manager. I have done the same for mouse & keyboard, just in-case. I have even disabled 'wake timers' and 'USB selective suspend'. in the power options. I'm stumped....
