  1. Sleep and power settings ignored


    Hi,

    I am having problems with power settings. I followed following instructions from the forum:


    1. Do nothing when closing lid when plugged in

    2. Turn off Uncheck fast startup

    3. Turn off Hybrid sleep for both on battery and plugged in

    4.Checked screensaver and put some screen saver after 15 minutes of idle time.


    Still having problems. When I close lid the screen goes to OFF and I have to press power button to put the system to sleep, and then again press power button to wake.

    I run powercfg with lastwake and energy and results are as mentioned below.


    Earlier before upgrading to version 1909, by resetting power plan to default settings, this problem was solved. I also use external monitor and occasionally, I remove HDMI cable and use the laptop.

    Please help. On some forums I read tweaking registry, which I have not yet tried.

  2. Screensaver Ignores Power and Sleep Settings

    I have had two PCs that are totally ignoring the Screen settings in Power and Sleep. The Screen setting is set to Never, but the screensaver comes on after a minute or so nonetheless.

    In one of those PCs, the Sleep setting is being followed. Don't know about the other.

    The PCs are custom branded

    • Intel DQ35JOE motherboard on the latest BIOS rev
    • Intel Q8200 CPU
    • 4 x 2GB DDR-800 various brands
    • 1 TB HD
    • WiFi card
    • Windows 10 Pro
    System has been tested for 24 hours with Prime95 and no errors are reported.

    Ran the Power Troubleshooter and all it did was reset the Screen and Sleep settings to the defaults.

    Setting are verified in the Control Panel.

    Any ideas?

  3. windows 10 power and sleep settings ignored

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand that you are facing issues with the Windows 10 Sleep, we will look into this for you. However, in order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below.



    • What is the make and model of your system?
    • Was there a major change or an update on your system, prior to which you weren't facing this issue?


    Meanwhile, this issue could be related to the Hybrid sleep and the Fast Startup. Hence, I would suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it works for you.



    Steps to turn off Hybrid Sleep:

    1. Click on Start icon.
    2. Type Control Panel and press Enter.
    3. Click on Power Options, then click on Change plan settings.
    4. Click on Change advanced power settings and expand
      Sleep
      option.
    5. Now expand Allow hybrid sleep and then change settings to
      Off.
    6. Click on Apply and then OK.


    Steps to turn off Fast Startup:

    1. Click on the Start icon.
    2. Type Control Panel and press Enter.
    3. Click on Power Options.
    4. Click on Choose what the power buttons do.
    5. Click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.
    6. Under Shutdown settings, uncheck the Turn on fast startup box.
    7. Click on Save changes. This will turn off fast startup.

    Restart the system and check if the issue still persists.



    We would also like you to open command prompt (Admin) after the PC wakes up. (Type in Windows search
    CMD and then right click on it, select Run as Administrator)



    Then type the command as mentioned in the /lastwake & /energy
    section from this Powercfg command-line
    options
    article.



    We await your response.

    Windows 10 ignores sleep settings

    I am struggling with windows 10 ignoring my sleep settings. After just a few minutes of inactivity (something like 5 min) the computer monitor turns off and the hard drive goes to sleep. I previously followed some forum suggestion to change power mode
    and change it back and reset to defaults which seemed to work for a while, but no longer works for me. I have tried various settings but Windows10 seems to ignore the changes. I am not using a screen saver.
