  1. Windows 10 - Monitors staying awake despite settings


    This has been an on and off problem with me for quite sometime, basically the problem is that randomly at times my monitors will just not go to sleep and stay awake - sometimes restarting the system works as a quick fix, sometimes it doesn't. I have manually went through the windows default settings several times and have ticked every single monitor sleep setting I can possibly think of relating to power usage and sleep BUT regardless at least once every two days I'll hop on my computer for 2 seconds and come back to my room an hour later and find that my monitors have not slept. Does anyone know a quick fix to this or something I can do? It's low-key very frustrating to me.

    NOTE: I do have displayfusion installed for multi monitors, I don't know how big of a factor this plays because I'm pretty sure the issue is with Windows itself but idk I figure if I want to actually solve this problem it's worth mentioning.

    Version: Windows 10 Pro 19041.388

    Thanks in advance any help / input / feedback is greatly appreciated

    :)

    Windows 10 can't stay awake

    Grep and Kapil,

    Thank you for your help. I was not able to get the Windows 10 to stay awake the configured 30 minutes. But, going through the steps provided, I was able to improve Windows staying awake from 2 minutes to 11 minutes. Why 11 minutes? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    easy way to stay awake?

    The best way to try and stay awake is to not try and stay awake.
    If i try to sleep i don't sleep and vice versa.
