    Hello, I am running a windows 10 HP ENVY X360. I am having a particular issue from quite a long time. Whenever, I just leave my computer turned on for sometime and come back, the screen goes blank (the power button light illuminates and PC makes sounds, as in normal running condition). I have tried all the things, changing different settings as suggested at different forums, but nothing works. It's a frustrating situation, and I would be really glad if someone could help please me.

    :)

    Why does computer go idle after only one minute?

    Actually, the problem I’m having is not that it won’t wake up but instead it goes to sleep in a minute or so it the computer is idle, like if I take a mini-break and the keyboard is idle for a minute. It resumes with login screen calling for PW.
