    If computer is idle for an hour or so, it will not accept inputs

    When I leave my Win 10 idle for an hour or so, it will stop all inputs, so I cannot do anything with it via my mouse or keyboard. I have tried plugging in a second keyboard, but still cannot access it. I have tried changing all of the settings to never shutdown or stop anything. This doesn't work. The problem exists when I am using a screen saver (slideshow) and when I am not using a screen saver. This problem appeared within the past two weeks. Everything worked before that.

    I have tried changing various settings to find ones that work, but the problem is insensitive to the setting choices.

    When the inputs stop, the only way I can regain access to my computer is to use the reset button.
