  1. Computer turns off after only a few minutes


    Ok, i can't for the life of me figure out the problem. I have my settings set to where my PC is not support to go to sleep. All the settings are set to NEVER. Yet, when i'm gone for 5-6 minutes, the computer just shuts down or something. I press buttons on my keyboard and it doesn't wake up. . . I'm not sure what the deal is. . . Any suggestions?

    :)

  2. Win 10 - Display turns off after a few minutes

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.

    Please provide the following information to assist you better:

    1. Have you installed graphics drivers?

    2. Since when are you facing this issue?

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    Method 1:

    Power Troubleshoot.

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with power. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your Power.

    Refer these steps:

    1. Press Windows key +X, select Control panel.

    2. Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons.

    3. Click on
    troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel.
    4. Run the
    Power troubleshooter.

    Method 2:

    Change the “Power plans” settings.

    A power plan is a collection of hardware and system settings (like display, sleep, etc.) that manages how your PC uses power. The power plans you can use depend on the kind of PC you have.

    Click on the below given link for additional information:


    “How to create and delete a power plan”.

    (applies to windows 10 as well)

    If the issue persist, I suggest you to update drivers and check if that helps. If that issue persist please uninstall and reinstall latest drivers available in manufacturer website.

    1. Press “Windows + X” and select Device manger.

    2. Select Display Adapter and expand the driver icon.

    3. Right click on the driver icon and click on Update.

    4. Follow the onscreen instructions to update the driver.

  3. Win 10 - Display turns off after a few minutes

    The problem seems to have been resolved. There was something wrong with Win 10 that was probably caused by the November update. The problem went away after running dism. The following was run with administrator CMD.

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
