    Something Keeps Changing My Power Setting


    I have 4 Windows 10 machines at home, and one of them is showing the infamous "going to sleep" problem. That PC goes into sleep after about 15 seconds of inactivity.

    -If I reset the power setting and create a new power setting (e.g., sleep after 2 hours), the PC works normally for a day. Then, the next day it shows the "sleep problem" again.
    -The system files are OK, and no hardware issues have been found.
    -Another Win 10 machine has the same motherboard, CPU and graphic card as the problematic one, but doesn't show the same sleep problem.

    So, something keeps changing the power setting. Is there a way to find a culprit?

    :)

  2. windows 10 freezing

    My Lenovo computer with 12 GB RAM and a core i5 processor keeps freezing for a minute or so then begins operating again.

    I may have found a solution.

    This deals with the Power Management

    >Start>settings>system>power & sleep>related settings>additional power settings>Lenovo power scheme>change plan settings>

    Advanced settings>PCI express>Link state power management>setting> change to OFF.

    Then I saw something which deals with USB (my mouse and my keyboard are USB connected to machine).

    >Start>settings>system>power & sleep>related settings>additional power settings>Lenovo power scheme>change plan settings>

    Advanced settings>USB settings>USB selective suspend setting>change setting to Disabled.

    Also look at Internet Explorer

    >Start>settings>system>power & sleep>related settings>additional power settings>Lenovo power scheme>change plan settings>

    Advanced settings>internet explorer>java script>change setting to Maximum Power Saving.

    Touch pad settings

    I keep changing the touch pad settings on my laptop so that I am able to scroll with one finger. This works fine, however when I power my laptop off, the settings change back to default. Is there a way to keep the settings from going back to default?
