    In my experience overrides for requests have been needed for a long time, for me since Win 7.
    I don't know if requests worked differently on a previous version of Win 10.
    I just add them and keep them as i find them, because they prevent sleep from working.

    fwiw, here are my overrides on a Win 7 OS installed about 7 years ago.

    Sorry meant to say I had never needed to use overrides before Win10 (never used Win8)!

    think the overrides are working but will update. Thanks again for all your help
