  1. power options


    I've a brand new Dell with brand new Win 10 pre-installed and once again the power option / sleep option does not work well. The problem happens off and on for years with previous windows versions but I forget the fix. I know how to set the buttons for when the screen saver should appear and that seems to work. But windows does not remember the power off setting to turn off the displays to black or off nor especially when to shut down altogether. I cannot just walk away and expect it to shut down. So it seems the sleep functions and power off functions are not working. What's the fix? thanks[

    :)

  3. sleep mode and power options not working on Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Forums.

    For issues with sleep mode and power options follow the steps provided below.

    Run the Power troubleshooter and check.

    Follow the steps to run the troubleshooter:

    • Open Control Panel.
    • Type Troubleshooting in search and click
      Troubleshooting.
    • Now type Power in the search option.
    • Click on Power troubleshooter to run.

    I would suggest you to try updating the Display driver and check if the issue persists. If you already have all the latest drivers from Windows updates, then I would suggest you to visit the computer manufacturer's website, download and install the latest
    drivers in compatibility mode and check.

    Hope this helps.
