    Welcome to the Ten forum.

    Type Power Options in the Cortana search bar. Power Option Control panel should appear at top of list. Click. Your power plans window opens.

    Which ever plan is selected, click on Change plan settings. Window opens, click on Restore Default settings. Then set values you want in boxes above. Save settings.

    This won't fix the problem but it will tell you what's causing it.

    Open Elevated Command Prompt (Run Command Prompt as Administrator)
    To find what is preventing system from sleep: Type powercfg -requests
    To find what is waking the system up from sleep: Type powercfg -lastwake

    Thanks. That seemed to work but only after a restart.
    Your effort is appreciated
