  1. PC sleeps too quickly.

    I am using WIN10, latest update. However this problem has existed from the beginning of installing WIN10. I will be working, and move away from my PC for maybe two minutes and the PC will be sleeping. I have changed the time to remain on all the way from 15 minutes to never. It still goes to sleep as soon as I turn my attention away. I am getting very tired of this and may be nearing the point of asking my attorney if I can possibly sue Microsoft. Seriously, does anyone know of a fix?

    My pc is going to sleep after 5 minutes of inactivity

    Hi Sebastian,

    Your PC might be set to sleep once it is idle for 5mins. For you to adjust this setting, we suggest looking into the
    Power Options advanced settings. Follow these steps:

    • Open Control Panel and click on Power Options.
    • On your Preferred plans, click Change plan settings.
    • Click Change advanced power settings.
    • Expand Sleep and System unattended sleep timeout.
    • Set how many minutes you want your system to be left idle before it goes to sleep.

    Let us know how it turns out.
