    laptop is very 'sleepy' sleeps after 2 minutes win 10

    I've just had a 'clean' install from 8.1 to 10, many issues, right now my device (tosh satellite) sleeps within 2 minutes. I've done the usual personalisation etc but to no avail. Suggestions are most welcome.

    Hi, there are many many threads on this in the forum, so recommend you research these and if no answer found, please post back with what you have tried.

    For example, just type
    sleeps 2 minutes
    into the forum search box at the top - this is what I see for starters..

    Sleepy pc

    Dalchina, thank you for the reply, first thing I did was power settings. Last night I turned everything up to the max, the problem seems to have been solved; Today I visited 'ms Insider', not much use but I did find there was a silverlight update added, I don't know but it may be that? Any idea how to stop Edge being default, also how to maintain internet connection, last night it got really strange. I went to network settings and found wi-fi had been turned off! how weird is that?
    Thanks again for the response.
    Are you anywhere near the 'Peaky Blinders'!?
