    Here is the solution that worked out for me:

    1. Click on the windows icon
    2. Type regedit
    3. Right-click on regedit icon, click Run as administrator
    4. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20\7bc4a2f9-d8fc-4469-b07b-33eb785aaca0
    5. Double click on Attributes
    6. Enter number 2.
    7. Go to Advanced power settings (click on Windows button, write power options, click on Power Options, in the selected plan click on the Change plan settings, click on the Change advanced power settings).
    8. Click on the Change settings that are currently unavailable
    9. Click Sleep, then System unattended sleep timeout, then change these settings from 2 Minutes to 20 for example.
    That's it!
    I would really like to try this, but when I got to step 8, that link is not there...I saw someone posted a screenshot of it earlier and mine does NOT have the link showing. Any ideas on how to get it to appear?

    Yes, it has been removed, but the options are still available. If you expand Sleep, the System unattended sleep timeout is the 2nd option. And, by the way, I had to set mine to 999. 20 minutes worked for a few weeks, but then it started going to sleep again. It hasn't gone to sleep since I increased it to 999, but I only changed it a week ago, so I'm still considering it in testing.

    After weeks of thinking I was going mad with all settings set to never sleep.. the above has FINALLY resolved all my sleeping after 2 minutes issues.. I just joined the forum to say thank you to the above poster.

    New to the forums, hello. I just finished doing what was mentioned in the first post. When I got to the part about "set it to 20 mins," mine is already set to 20 minutes. I actually have my computer set to never sleep or never shut down. I prefer to do this manually, myself.

    I take college classes online, and am always afraid if I am taking a test and have to get up for a minute, my computer will shut down and end my test session before I am done. Sometimes it won't shut off for 3 hours, sometimes it shuts down (sleeps) after what seems like 35 seconds as I leaf through a textbook for info.

    HP desktop, 8gb ram, forget what processor, but it's an amazing computer. I love windows 10 also, just not the sleep/shutdown thing. It came with win7, I did the free update to 10. Then formatted the computer and installed a fresh windows 10, hoping that would cure the problem. It hasn't, I just don't leave my computer if I'm taking a test.
