    Power problem

    My computer was working great until about 3 or 4 weeks ago. Now for some reason when its inactive for about 5 minutes the screen will go dark and moving the mouse to reactivate the screen, it takes a minute or two for the display to come back. Also when the computer is inactive for few minutes, instead of it going into sleep mode it turns off. When you press the button it comes back on, not as a re-boot but where it was when it turned off. Is this normal for windows 10? Tired of waiting for display to return and tired of restarting Windows.

    Never operated in this manner using Windows 7

    Assuming checked all settings in Power options, as for screen it is then set to go off in 5 minutes it seems. Rest sounds like it's using hibernate, although used mostly for laptops and sometimes option not there for desktops.
