I had similar problems Win XP days. It turned out to be a failing (Filter) capacitor in the modem power supply. I had a spare modem, swapped them out and the problems disappeared. My ISP replaced the defective modem.

If you are using and ssd, one possible fix is, in the power options, is to set the Hard disk for turn off to "never". The computer needs to see the hard disk from sleep, which can be causing the problem. I also have mine to "never sleep", which gives a faster response. I have never noticed any significant wear and tear, in , even, my older computers, over many years. But that would be your personal decision.

^^^ I never allow any of my devices or computers to 'sleep' nor hibernate. Either on or off. Both cases my mouse clicking on the power button or occasionally a power glitch in the house. And I always close ( saving as required) all applications before switching off.


Too many decades of working with old unreliable computers I guess.
