    Are you sure it's sleep and not the monitor turning off?

    Temporarily you could download and install 'Don't Sleep' (freeware) - just search for it, install, run.
    Should stop sleep and let you use your PC.

    Remember to disable it when trying to fix your problem.

    1. Has your PC's sleep function ever worked properly with Win 10?
    2. Or has it recently started to sleep after 30s?

    What settings do you have here?

    Launch event viewer (just type event in the Cortana search bar)
    Look for Event Id 42
    What does it tell you about what caused the PC to sleep?
