    Finally found the solution,just in time too because I swear I was about to go insane.

    Right click on desktop > Power and sleep > Additional power settings > Choose when to turn off the display > Change advanced power settings > Restore plan defaults

    I don't know why but this completely got rid of the issue and I was then able to make the settings whatever I wanted.

    Hope this helps!

    Unfortunately this solution did not work for me. I had seen it posted somewhere else and had already tried it, but it still goes to sleep after a few minutes of inactivity. I have two machines running Win 10 (a desktop and a laptop), both have the issue, and this fix did not work for either machine. I have also checked the theme and the screen saver is turned off on both machines.

    It gets really frustrating how there is always something like this when the new version of Windows comes out. There are some nice things about Win 10, but as usual there are many bugs. I understand some bugs are to be expected with new software, so I usually wait until a service pack comes out before considering an upgrade. However, this time Microsoft decided to basically force this "upgrade" on me.

    Thanks for posting this as it worked for me also. I don't need the computer sleeping when I'm in the middle of a session.

    I assume this is a Microsoft thing, since every fix I have found for this has not worked. So I am guessing it is just some bug in the operating system that Microsoft has not gotten around to fixing yet (as usual). Come on Microsoft...FIX THIS. If you are going to force me to upgrade, the least you can do is fix your bugs.

    I have found a workaround using a downloaded no sleep program that moves the mouse one pixel back and forth every thirty seconds or so. Imperceptible to the eye, but enough to make the computer still think it is in use so that it will not sleep. It is ridiculous that I have to rely on third party software just to keep my computer awake. Plus, it is very easy to forget that it is running, and then go off to work and my computer never goes to sleep.

    I have a Lenovo e540 and had similar issues. I was able to resolve most of my power (sleep) issues by disabling the Lenovo PM Service (Lenovo Power Management Service). I think it was overriding the Windows 10 settings no matter what I did.
