I want to apologize for all of my previous posts about an issue that I feel responsible for.
The issue was that my NUC randomly did not wake up from sleep.
The truth is ( this is embarrassing ) I used an old keyboard & an old mouse which were to blame. I didn't tell anyone about it since nobody had asked about it and I didn't suspect the keyboard & mouse were to blame since they exhibited no other malfunction.
Anyways- With my new touch keyboard everything is working flawlessly. so... I apologize.
My NUC is really great.
