Windows 10 screen goes funky after being in sleep mode

This is a Dell PC running windows 10. When you wake up the PC from sleep mode, i sometimes get the screen you see in the attachments. The white box you see is the mouse icon and that moves when you move the mouse.

I'm not 100% sure if this happens all the time, its the wifes PC, but its happened a few times now.

And on a separate PC that was just set up yesterday, when the PC goes into sleep mode the screen does not wake up when you move the mouse or type on the keyboard. The cap locks still comes on and off, and you can see the HD light flickering like its being active, but the screen refuses to display anything.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Check to see if there is an updated BIOS for your system, many manufacturers have bios updates that address various sleep related issues.

I don't think it is that. The only thing near the monitor is some small speakers and i moved those further away. The only other thing close would be the battery power unit which is at least 3 ft away.
