    PC hibernates / goes into sleep mode upon logout / screen lock


    I am using my work computer. It's a laptop with a power connection (not running on battery.) The laptop is hocked up to two monitors (a total of three monitors, counting the laptop's own screen - I usually keep my laptop closed, however.)
    Since I am at work I always lock the screen when I leave my computer. (I use the windows+L shortcut to lock the screen.) This all works fine.

    However, after about a minute the computer goes into sleep mode / hibernation. At least I think it does, because the two monitors goes black - and it takes a few seconds to "wake up the system" (the monitors doesn't come back to life immediately when I press a key on the keyboard / move the mouse, as they would if a screen saver was active.)
    This is very annoying if I step away from my computer for only a short while (like going to the bathroom.)

    Here's what I want:
    With power (not running on battery):
    When I lock the screen, I want the screen to stay on for 1 minute, then go to screen saver for 15 minutes, then go to hibernation/sleep mode.

    Without power (running on battery):
    When I lock the screen, I want the screen to stay on for 1 minute, then go to screen saver for 5 minutes, then go to hibernation/sleep mode.

    My best bet is that this is some sort of power saving scheme thingie, but I can't seem to figure out how to configure it to do what I want. Can someone please help me with a step-by-step guide to configure my system the way I want? Thank you.

    :)

    sleep mode

    Hi disgruntledWC,

    There could be other settings on your computer that triggers your computer to go on sleep even though the sleep settings is set to never. To ensure that the sleep and display settings are properly set, I suggest that you look into the Advanced Power Settings.
    Follow these steps:

    • Open Control Panel and click Power Options.
    • On your preferred plan, click Change plan settings.
    • Click advanced power settings.
    • Expand Sleep option, and make sure to set the following:
    Sleep after : Never

    Hibernate after : Never

    5. Click Apply, then OK.

    Please check also the screen saver option.

    • Navigate to Settings > Personalization > Lock screen.
    • Click Screen saver settings.
    • Set your Screen saver to None.
    • Click Apply, then OK.

    Once done, please observe if your computer still goes to sleep mode after a few minutes of inactivity.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Regards.

    Hibernate mode Vs Sleep Vs Hybrid sleep.

    From now on i will use the Hybrid sleep mode and let's hope it works as it should.

    Hibernate mode Vs Sleep Vs Hybrid sleep.

    @Knoxx29 , hybrid sleep used to have problems only with some ACPI drivers. It did not involve hibernation mode directly, like many "tech websites" assumed.

    I use hybrid sleep, cause I do have occasional power outages, and my UPS is not very reliable (time for a new one). I only shut down my PC at night. The rest of the time I put it to sleep.
    So far I had no problems with Hybrid Sleep, except one customer laptop. I think it was ASUS K53S, and it suffered with sleep and hibernation on all OSes, excluding Ubuntu 16.04.
    My old x58 rig also had some hiccups in Win10, but nothing critical or annoying.
