  1. Power Settings - No Automatic Shutoff


    Have the settings at 5 for screen off and 10 or 30 for power off.
    Automatic screen shuts off is okay. Power does not go off automatically.
    The computer will go into sleep state using the keyboard key.
    I ried the Windows trouble shooting tool for a fix but it did not find any problem.
    Cold rebooted a couple of times, but that did not help.

    Overwhelmed with the hits, variations of this issue, and tangles for a possible fix in searching the web for a solution.

    Does anybody have a fix for me?
    How on earth did this happen?

    :)

  2. WIndows 10 Shutoff

    Hi,



    It would be great if you can answer the following questions:

    • How did you upgrade to Windows 10?
    • Were there any changes made on the computer prior to the issue?


    I would suggest you to follow these steps and try to run the Power troubleshooter:

    • Press Windows key + X on the keyboard.
    • Click on Control panel.
    • Type “Troubleshooting” without quotes in the Control panel
      search box.
    • Click on Troubleshooting and click on View all.
    • Click on Power troubleshooter and follow the on-screen instructions.


    I would also suggest you to run the System maintenance troubleshooter by following the above steps.
