    This seems to resolve the issue for me as well on my Razer Blade FHD late 2016 (with the GTX 1060). Finally!

    Well, the latest Creators Update brings lots of issues and errors with it, but this can be fixed. I updated my Windows 10 PC to creators update and my PC start crashing, freezing. I tried some of the steps like scanning my system with antivirus program, and update the drivers as well, but still getting the same issue.

    So, I Googled and found a article http://www.fixwindowserrors.biz/blog/creators-update-crash-hangs-freeze-bsod-error and tried the solution given here.

    I fixed the issues and now my Windows 10 OS is working fine.

    Microsoft is trying to push the fall creators update to my Razer Blade (late 2016) now. Is it safe to install now? Any experiences?

    I have the same laptop and updated last night. Everything so far appears to work correctly even while on battery. I was affected by the trackpad while on battery issue originally and rolled back. Please note: I am using the track pad with precision driver hack.

    So I have a RBP 2017 and had the keyboard and track pad issues like so many others after the FCU installed. For me, if I unplugged the charger the keyboard lights would go out and then the KB and TP would no longer work at all. If I plugged the charger back in the magically started working as normal. Decided to give the Insider updates a run and was on 17025 until about an hour ago. The 17025 version did not help and I was almost ready to reset to the recovery. So I changed my Insider preferences to Fast for faster updates and 17040 downloaded and installed. After a couple of reboots to finish the installation, I unplugged the charger and nothing happened in a good way. The lights on the KB and TP stayed on and could type and also use the TP without issue. Tried sleep mode by closing the lid and also the power button a few separate times and no issue. I know the Insider thing may not be for everyone, but at least for me it has resolved the problems I had with the FCU.

    I updated. Working pretty well so far. No sleeping issues, no hibernation issues, no trackpad issues. Problems seem to be fixed. Tested just for a day though, so if anything happens I'll come back here to tell you guys.

    So far all is good with mine. Two days and waking after sleep multiple times a day and also fresh starts in the morning are all without issue. I did post to the Microsoft Insider feedback about the issues we Razer users were having and that the update has fixed the issue at least for myself and a couple of you here who said the same. Hopefully Microsoft will either release a small patch or fix soon so users that do not want to do the insider updates can be helped as well.

    I've started to experience random total freezes. It is not very common (I'd say every three days) but when it happens, the computer totally freezes and I have to hard restart. I'm not doing anything special, and it was while doing different stuff.

    As usual the windows even viewer is useless (weird how it became less and less informational through the years. It should be the other way)

    I think I had a VMWare instance running in the back at all those times, but not sure.

    Isn’t solved yet!? I think I should keep carefull on FCU for my Blades and stay on 1703, it’s like cryptone stone for them...
     
  14. Did anyone notice lower battery life since the update? The battery life for my Razer blade 2017 was cut down to half since the update.

    Users reported also same issue on Razer subreddit, even on stealth. Seems trackpad update brought another issue.

    Not in my case. One thing I can say is: I have an ongoing issue (since I bought my Razer Blade) that having hibernation enabled pumps up energy consumption. With hibernation enabled I get 2 / 2.5 hours, with hibernation disabled I get 5 / 5.5 hours.

    After the update hibernation was re-enabled so energy consumption started to peak again. I disabled hibernation and now everything is going OK again on that side.

    Shouldn´t hibernation shut the notebook down after copying the memory to the harddisk? How could this consume battery?

    Yes, it's weird. I diagnosed this issue for a long time and it seems there's a problem with re-activation of drivers when windows comes back from hibernation. The problem seems to be, mostly, Nvidia Optimus. If i reset the card after coming back from hibernation power consumption decreases, although not as low as when the pc is freshly boot or coming back from suspension.

    I tried to get Razer to help me but they insisted on me sending back the laptop to them. I cannot do that as I"m currently living in Europe.

  19. I wonder if this has anything to do with my Razer Balde dying a few days ago, it just turned off while it was unplugged and it wouldn't turn on anymore and only there was a faint light coming from the Capslock key. I'm currently in the RMA process but if this is true Razer and Nvidia should address this problem as soon as possible.

    Damn. :-(
    But this does not sound like an issue regarding Blade Stealth´s as they do not have nvidia hardware. What notebook are you using?
