    Power settings


    Hi

    So back when i had Windows 7 instead of Windows 10, if i left home and my PC was still turned on, then after about 30 minutes the Green Led from the PC tower started blinking and the PC kinda went into some form of power saving. I know it wasn't hibernate or sleep because i had those turned off in Windows 7. The only setting i have is for the screen in power options that turns off after 10 minutes.

    But in Windows 10 i noticed it doesn't do this anymore, after 2-3 hours, the PC doesn't go into some power saving and the Green Led doesn't start blinking like it did in Windows 7.

    Can anyone please tell me why ? Or what is the setting for this ?

    :)
