    Lock Screen closing applications

    Hey, so I'm new to windows 10. Cleaned my laptop completely by resetting it and when I tried to install old games using steam had to download the updates again. But now when the screen locks it closes down steam and the updates don't download. This is really frustrating due to the fact I don't have very fast internet so updates for games can take a long time. When running windows 7 I could leave my laptop on during the day and at night to finish updating, is there any way I can fix this?

    Review your power options and advance power options. You may need to install windows 10 updates for a while to get smooth running.

    You can prevent the machine from going to sleep for and hour or more so all the updates get installed. Just keep going into settings update and checking.

    Also, double check device manager and make sure their are no unknown devices after the updates are done, I would down load them from my rigs vendor. If no win 10 version, then look for 8.1 or win 7.

    Good Luck
