  1. How to DISABLE (not just turn off) sleep mode


    To make it clear I want the pc to be incapable of sleep mode even if it is selected in the power settings. IE sleep after x minutes is selected the PC should still NOT go into sleep mode. Even if a command is issued to go into sleep mode it should return an error.

  3. Is it safe to put your pc in sleep mode?

    Definitely disable sleep and hibernation modes. I set the monitor to power off after 3 minutes on my server and 15 minutes on my desktops. I turn desktops off at night if they aren't working on something.

  4. How to DISABLE (not just turn off) sleep mode

    Sleep mode does not disable on Windows 10

    I have the same issues:

    • I have all the updates.
    • I disabled sleep in every way possible (please don't offer instructions on how to disable sleep...I already did this).
    • After about two minutes of inactivity, the computer enters sleep mode.
    • One way that I found to prevent this from happening is by running Amazon's music app and a playlist. While the playlist is running, the computer doesn't enter sleep mode.
    I know I'm not the only one with this issue and have seen requests for help on various websites. What's frustrating is that the responses typically include the standard instructions for disabling sleep mode, which doesn't work.
