  3. Power options don't work as set

    I upgraded to windows 10 when it first came out. I have a Toshiba satellite t55 purchased about a year ago. I have the power options set to balanced with display shutdown in 10 minutes and sleep in 20 when plugged in. For about a month the settings would
    work as set intermittently, but mostly the screen would go dark in about 60 seconds of inactivity. In the last week or so, it stopped shutting down at all. I've run power troubleshooting and SFC/scannow as suggested in another post without any effect.

    Any suggestions?
