    Policy Setting to prevent Power Switch off of devices?


    I am looking for help from anyone with intimate knowledge of the group policies.
    I have switched off all the power management settings which allow the O/S to switch off a device to save power. I am still getting disconnects and some times this affects the mouse and keyboard such that my only resolution is to switch the whole machine off and reboot, sometimes losing current information.

    I have two identical machines one running Win 10 and one Win 7.
    Comparing the power management in both shows that Win 10 allows more devices to be switched off than Win 7. I am now very fearful of switching both my machines to Win 10 in case this problem causes me to lose important information.

    Is there a group policy? that affects all devices.

    I can understand MS including this for tablets, mobiles and laptops but it should not happen in PCs.

    :)

  2. Lenovo C40 powering up after Windows 10 upgrade

    Hi again, I spoke to soon..... PC is still 'waking up' after being powered off.....only way to prevent it is to use the power on/ off switch to turn the machine off instead of the 'shut down' option.

  3. WIFI disconnect on standby Policy Setting to prevent Power Switch off of devices? :(

    This feature prevents wifi from draining your battery. It is possible to switch it off. Simply open Connection Manager and go into Wifi Settings and click Power Mode. You should have the option to uncheck "Auto turn off WLAN if no WLAN or user activities
    after LCD off over:"
