    Recent updates messed power settings up


    After one of the recent updates, my laptop's power settings, specifically turning screen off when plugged in, seem to reset on regular basis. I change it to "never" and after next reboot it changes back to 15 minutes. Strangely enough, sleep setting does not reset. It was fine for years, but then Microsoft decided to mess it up for whatever reason.Q: How do i fix this? It's not the end of the world, but is starting to get annoying.Another issue, not related to power settings, but it shows how competent people at Microsoft are. After the last update i restarted my computer only to find useless

    :)
