    Build 10547 confusing power&sleep settings

    I wanted to change my power and sleep settings for my display.

    At first it didn't seem to work. Working through it methodically however, I found there are FOUR places that can be set for the same thing!

    (1) Win10 Start/Settings/Display/Power&Sleep. I set it to never

    (2) Below that in Additional Power Settings I was taken to the Control Panel. Checking the Preferred Plan settings the screen setting didn't reflect the change above.

    (3) From the CP is another option: 'when to turn off display'

    (4) Finally there are the "advanced power settings".

    This is ridiculous. Surely all I need set is the initial (1) Settings? And this doesn't even include setting the Screen Saver which seems to be over-ridden by the other settings!

    Obviously Microsoft have got their knickers in a bit of twist with some settings undertaken in Settings and others still in CP.

    I have seen someone who said it takes a restart to make the changes work for that setting. Did you find this to be true? Did settings work for you?

    Yes, at least a re-login is needed I think. But I don't think just setting Settings alone is enough anyway. I haven't tested that.
