    Windows continually sleeping. Even When all preferences set to "NEVER"


    Hi All


    Having an issue with Windows continually sleeping, going to lock screen and then having to continually log back in.


    All preferences for "sleep" and "screen" have been set to "NEVER".


    This is becoming very frustrating when talking to a PowerPoint presentation and the "BUBBLES" pop up !!!!!


    We have just completed all latest updates and this was not an issue previous to completing the updates.

    :)

    After Windows 10 Anniversary Update Computer Not Sleeping

    Hello.

    Does disabling the HID-Complaint Touch Screen driver resolves the issue? If yes, we suggest that you disable it and see if your device go into Sleep mode after a period of inactivity.

    We also suggest to check if the settings of the Power Options of your device are set so that the device will go into Sleep mode after a period of time. You may follow the steps below to check is Sleep mode is enabled on your device:

    • Press the Windows button + X, then click on
      Power Options.
    • Click Change when the computer
      sleeps.
    • Change the settings to your preferred settings.

    Keep us updated on the results.

    Regards.

  4. Windows continually sleeping. Even When all preferences set to "NEVER"

    Sleep mode

    Hi John,

    Since this is a new computer, settings may be on the default configuration. One of the option to configure the authentication requirement when the device wakes from sleep is through
    Settings under Accounts. To be guided on this, we suggest that you follow the steps below:


    • On the Search box, type
      Sign-in options and press Enter.

    • Under Required sign-in, click the drop down arrow and choose your
      preferred setup.

    • Once done, close the Settings window and check if the issue persists.

    Let us know how it goes after performing the steps above.
