    Sleep option

    Hi John,

    The issue might be due to a disabled sleep to show in Power menu
    option in Control Panel.

    We would like to ask for some information:

    • Did you get any error messages?
    • Can you provide us with a screenshot?

    In the meantime, please check if the sleep to show in Power menu
    option in Control Panel is enabled using the steps below:

    • Type Control Panel on the search box and press Enter.
    • Select System and Security, then Power Options.
    • Click on Choose what the power buttons do.
    • Put a check-mark on the Sleep-Show in Power menu box.

    We will wait for your response.

  3. Sleep option

    Hi Remon,

    I tried what you suggested, but I did not see a sleep option listed in the settings for the power options. There was a "hibernate" option, but I don't think that is the same as the sleep option which I had prior to the last update. Also, since the update,
    my graphics, images, and fonts are slightly distorted.

    Thanks,

    John

    Sleep Function

    Hello Brad,

    It is possible that an accidental change due to Windows updates has removed the sleep option in the power menu. Let's try to add the sleep option again. Here's how:

    • Click Start, type Power Options, and select Power & sleep settings
      in the results.
    • Under Related settings in the right part of the screen, click on
      Additional power settings
      .
    • In the left pane, click on Choose what the power buttons do.
    • Click on the Change settings that are currently unavailable link in the upper part of the screen.
    • Scroll down to the bottom of the window and ensure Sleep is checked and click
      Save Changes. (see screenshot below)

    About your computer shutting down after being idle for 10 minutes, it is possible that your computer is set to shutdown or sleep after this duration. We suggest that you check the
    Power & sleep options on your computer and verify the settings. (You can follow the steps provided above to access these options).

    Let us know how it goes so we can assist you further.
