    hello, i use a HP ENVY dv4 with core i5, 2.5ghz, 6GB RAM and a 750GB HDD. I recently did a fresh installation windows 8.1 because i was having some problems with previous windows 8 but the problem still persists. The problem was that it was unable to sleep, when i put it to sleep the screen just goes off for about 3 seconds then it comes on again. I also noticed that my hard disk space decreased after each restart. so i did a clean installation of windows 8.1, after the installation i noticed it still didnt sleep, asides that my keyboard is really messing up. when i try to type it presses other buttons in conjunction which i didnt press For example i press "L" it just locks my screen and i understand that the "windows button + L" locks the screen. Because of all that i cant really use my pc the way i want, even with it is difficult.
    Please i'd really love to hear suggestions of what i could do about it. Thank you!
