I could see that as a way to stop all dogfights about The One and Only True Way to Format Code.
Yup, was also one of the reasons
Still, there is no "one true way"; simplest solution would be to "accept all", or have some tool do the formatting. Not wanting to have discussions on were whitespace goes is a bad argument to stop all formatting.

Only worked there for a year, two tops. No discussions on how to format the VB.NET code since VS automatically did that.

The first time I went on a customer trip with my boss. I was an intern at the time. We were writing a control system for part of a manufacturing line. At one point, a part of the application I had written stopped working. I couldn't understand what was wrong, my boss was getting pissed, and the customer was looking unimpressed. We spent hours going over this and not getting anywhere. Finally, I went back and compared the code we were running to my original copy. They were different, and I hadn't made the changes. When I showed it to my boss, he admitted changing some things because he didn't like how I did part of it. When we put my code back, the application started working again.
I didn't say more than a half-dozen words to the guy the whole 10-hour drive home.
Spending a beautifully sunny Saturday morning in the cold server room of Skopje airport, because the (redundant) servers weren't communicating with each other, only to find that it was because the installation engineers hadn't followed my very clear, very detailed instructions on installing the Synaptic software.
They hadn't bothered following the section on configuring exceptions for Synaptic's internal firewall, so the servers weren't being allowed to talk to each other.
As is typical, once I'd found the problem, it took only a couple of minutes to fix -- but the day was ruined.

Had a boss who should have been running his company rather than writing code.
I inherited a codebase that had a function that was about 700 lines long, and it had been copied 7 times, each with different parameters and had very subtle changes being made to the bodies of each duplicated function. After about 3 years of seeing this code almost daily (it was pretty much central to everything the app did), I took it upon myself to refactor the code so there was a single function. The next logical step would've been to refactor the one function some more into smaller chunks, but by that time I was still too afraid of breaking it that's where I stopped.

Depends on the software you use - I find I have to power cycle from time to time on the Surface where it sleep /hibernates most of the time. If I don't, I lose the mouse pointer.
And hibernate can be a PITA if you have network shares onto a power-saving NAS - if it goes into low-power mode and spins the disks down, Windows doesn't always reconnect them properly. The same with access to SQL via the Desktop machine, even if no apps accessing it are open when the Surface is hibernated.
Herself also has "odd problems" with her Jigsaw app - sleep or hibernate with it running full screen and it always comes back with a blank screen, which is annoying to say the least.

I've had issues with my Surface losing the mouse, too. Bluetooth mouse. Same with a Lenovo Yoga before the Surface. Bought a cheap HP Bluetooth mouse (HP # H3T51AA) about a year ago & haven't had a single drop since.
It's more my work laptop that I am questioning; and it arises when I intend to actually work from home and VPN back into work. Sometimes the Cisco client just doesn't want to "let go" if I don't power down before re-connecting in the office.

I'd be blaming the disk controller doing a bad job of power management rather than the OS. And frankly, based on my own experience, I've had much worse luck recovering from sleep sessions than hibernating.
My desktop systems run 24/7 (and have for years), but I always let my laptops hibernate - especially the older ones that otherwise take a long time to do a full reboot. Maybe I'm just lucky, but I've never encountered the sort of situation you're describing.
And I'll bring this up just because I hate them with a passion: Are your drives by any chance misfortune Seagate?
