Question PC Slow after idle

Dec 26, 2019
Every time I leave my PC idle, even for a short time, when I get back on, it's very slow even if I've closed all running apps/programs. I used to have this problem and it went away on its own, but now its back and super annoying. The lag gets worse the longer I leave my PC idle.
