    Todays ms update 14th Sep 17 at 5:38 PM
    Every since I got the update earlier today when I close the lid of my laptop the reopen again the screen is blank with no icons and however long I leave it they don't reappear

    Until............

    I crash it and let it reboot - then they reappear.

    How can I correct this?

    Don't close the lid?

    Only joking... what has your laptop previously done when you closed the lid and reopened it again?
    You need to have a look at the additional sleep settings by typing powercfg.cpl into Cortana/search

    Hi, we’ve had to remove your signature because somebody complained that the information contained within it was too helpful.

    I know you were joking but not closing could be an option.
