  1. Laptop Sleep Issues

    I have set the laptop to sleep for 5 minutes both the screen and the PC and hard disk in advanced settings and everything was fine until recently, the screen goes to sleep after 5 minutes but the system doesn't and I have tried everything in settings. Recently, I reset the settings to default for everything and it still doesn't work. The system/hard drive is still running but screen goes to sleep. Why doesn't system when sleep timer is same for them both?
