    I have my power button set to sleep in settings. When I press my power button the sp3 displays a screen asking me to slide down to shut down. Am I missing a setting?

    I have the same problem, all of the settings are correct to make it sleep on pressing the power button, but it won't respond correctly, always the shut down slide screen.

    may be unrelated but the waiting "wheel" won't stop spinning no matter what I'm doing, these issues started simultaneously..

    Thanks for the response. Very strange, but both issues stopped all of a sudden. I had restarted my computer a number of times, but then I shut down, rebooted maybe two hours later, and the button has its old functionality.

    Good find on the bug though, I'll know where to go if it happens again. Hyper-V was disabled when I found it.
