  1. A specific app, PressReader, prevents my Surface Pro 6 from going to sleep. Why?


    Is there some feature in Windows that allows an app to keep Windows from going to sleep. My Surface Pro 6 goes to sleep on schedule as expected except when the PressReader app is in normal or expanded view. The app can be open and minimized and Windows will go to sleep on schedule. But if the app is expanded, Windows will never go to sleep. It will wind the battery down to zero. Can someone tell me why?

    :)
