After I updated my computer with an windows 10 point update my computer won't go to sleep. I click sleep from setting and a few minutes later it's back on. It even wakes up out of being shutdown which I've never seen. Does anyone know what the issue could be??

Well, I have this issue, usually I unplug the mouse (razor) and it's fine. I know it's the culprit, to lazy to find a actual fix for this.
I'm guessing it got something to do with usb-power saving options. (device manager section)
Try to unplug everything USB just to check if this is the issue.

I had a ghost for many years. My ghost was the Korg PadKrontrol via USB.

Yeah, this has happened on almost every Windows computer I've owned. The trick I found that works is not to us "Sleep" but use "Hibernate" (there is also a mixed mode for "hybrid sleep" mode which works great too). Here are instructions on how to hibernate or hybrid sleep your PC:

Same. New update and then after few days after it crashed completely. I had the feeling it was going to crash because it would restart and not shut down. Every time.
I had to reinstall everything with new version 20H something. Now it's back to normal.

Had nothing but trouble with waking up from Sleep or Hibernate, going back to Win 7. Finally tech repair guy suggested I just have Display go to sleep, but hard drives set to "Never". They still spin down after a period of inactivity, so things are pretty quiet when it goes dark at 30 minutes. But awake instantly when mouse wiggled. Haven't used Sleep or Hibernate in 3-4 years now. Also, straight up wired USB mouse for me, only. The wire keeps it from falling all the way to the floor... :)

I had this issue a number of times but it hasn't happened in the last 6 months. This link has some information about how to find what is blocking Windows from going into sleep mode, using the powercfg command. I can't find the original link I used to solve the issue but I think the linked page should help with resolving it.
