    I cannot save changes to the Power & Sleep


    I change Power & Sleep time from 15 min to 30 min. When I restart the time is back to 15 min.
    I checked and I am the admin. I changed acct to local from Win. Still no joy.
    Without going into some kind of registry trying stuff way over my head, isn't there some kind of global setting that will allow me to save to my own machine! *Mad

    thanks, bill

  2. How to get audio software to prevent sleep mode w/o changing sleep settings

    Hi Adam,

    Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player—the computer immediately
    stops what it’s doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working. In Sleep Mode you cannot listen to music. The option that you may take is to change the sleep settings through
    Power & Sleep settings. To change the settings, simply go
    Power & Sleep
    by performing search in Cortana (simply type "power and sleep'). From there, you can see the option and change it to your preference.

    Feel free to post back if you have further questions or future concerns.
