  1. Power settings automatically changing


    I hope someone out there can help me please -

    As for a few months now, Windows 10 build 19042.685 keeps changing the sleep setting to 2 hours, I have it set to never, as I could have background processes happening and I don't want to watch it so I let t go unsupervised, and when I come back - it has gone to sleep - and most of the time I have to start the process all over again,.

    I have followed several different posts which I had hoped would work, they don't - it's getting really annoying.

    one was setting no sleep in group policy,

    the other was a I'm unable to remember right at this moment but one of them had me removing a setting which was supposed to be automating the power settings, which is not the case. when I remember I will post the link

    I have done all the usual basic trouble shooting, even installed a power management tool, which didn't do anything.

    I don't know if anyone else is getting it, but it pretty much started with one of the Windows updates.

    :)
