YLSNED: Windows powercfg command

I was just on the phone with my Dad. He’s having a problem with his Dell Desktop PC. It’ll go in to Sleep, possibly Hibernation, mode and won’t come out. He has to hold the power button down for 10 seconds to power the PC down, and then press it again to power it back up.
