  1. Windows 10 Still Goes to Sleep after random short intervals


    I posted a question about this before, and I reloaded windows, and I thought it solved the problem, it did not, and all it cost me was a lot of heartache after reloading windows. I thought maybe it was connected to the GEForce Graphics Updates, and sometimes it seems as it is, but it really is not that I can tell, because it Windows 10 still goes to sleep even if I have the latest driver updates, but sometimes, it seems if when there is an update with the GEForce, updating the driver does stop it from sleeping. I thought maybe if I turned off automatic updates in windows it would solve the problem, like it was connected to that, but I don't think it is. I think that Windows 10 for some reason will start going to sleep if you haven't turned if off / restarted in a certain period of time. Usually when I restart it, it stops going to sleep at least for a day or so.

    IT IS THE MOST FRUSTRATING THING, because I will be in the middle of working on a project, I take my hands off the keyboard or mouse for a few moments, and then I'll see it go to sleep, and it will keep doing it until I restart (hopefully). I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE who has this issue, I wonder when it will be resolved if ever, it makes me want to go MAC SO BAD, and maybe I will at some point, but I'm so familiar with Windows the leap at this moment is more hassle than I want. No one has ever been able to resolve this, and I know there are several locked threads on this same subject, ACKNOWLEDGE IT IS AN ISSUE and FIX IT, PLLLLLEAAASE!


    Here's my old thread on this:

    After waking up, computer goes sleep again after short interval of inactivity.

    I have set that my computer can never go to sleep on its own. Which works until I activate sleep mode. When I wake it up, it goes to sleep on its own after very short interval of inactivity (like a minute). It is very annoying and I do not know what to
    do. I have been experiencing this issue since fall update.
