  1. PC is turning completely off? Set to turn off screen at 10 minutes


    I use the PC, walk away, and everytime it sits awhile it is off when I go back. I have to push power button, it boots showing the bios screen just like it actually is completely off.


    There are no lights on, the PC does not react to keyboard or mouse, only the power button which seems to be starting the PC.

    I went to power settings and see nothing odd.

    :)

    PC is turning off after 3 minutes, but i have screen saver set for 5 minutes and turn off set for 15 minutes.

    Not sure why it is doing this.

    I tested it 2 times and both times it turns off the screen and keyboard light after about 3 minutes. Odd.

    WHat settings other than Turning Off Pc wait time that would do this? Shouldnt turn off until 15 minutes of inactivity while plugged in. That is the setting. It should kick into screen saver mode after 5 minutes.

    My sleep mode wait time is 1 hour plugged in so that isnt it.

    PC is turning off after 3 minutes, but i have screen saver set for 5 minutes and turn off set for 15 minutes.

    changes to settings? well, i set the wait time for screen saver. That shouldnt cause issues.

    There are no error codes. Everything works fine except it turns off after 3 minutes of no activity and no idea why it does that. Need the screen saver to go on
    after 5 minutes of inactivity.

    I will do Troubleshooter in the morning. it is very late now. Thanks.

    Can you please answer this question though?:

    But the only thing that would impact the screen turning off is the setting for Choose when to Turn off the Display, correct?

    Control Panel, Power Options.

    The bad part of adjusting just one thing is other things such as powering down the HDD will interfere, have to go through every setting to see what needs changing to accomplish what you want. And on Notebooks one has to make separate changes in the sections on When on battery or When on AC power.

  5. This is a desktop. I did reset power options.
    Will see what happens.

    I am posting a lot of win10 questions because I am switching my wife from old win7 PC to this newer win 10 pc, and not everything is smooth going. There have been problems.

    Another weird issue, the nvidia 8400gs, device manager said need to restart to enable driver, but over 10 restarts it always says must restart to enable. So I went to nvidia and am installing newest video driver now, will see what happens.
