    [corrected]

    Get to the right place to change this setting -

    right-click on the Start button,
    scroll down to the entry Windows system and click on it to expand it,
    Control panel,
    [in the upper-right area, select View by - you can choose either Large icons or Small icons],
    click on Power options,
    on the right of the name of your 'power scheme' [which is probably called "Balanced"], click on Change plan settings.

    You can then use the dropdown list to change the time it waits before turning off to whichever time you want,
    and press Save changes afterwards.

    Hi Try3.
    Could you please confirm that right clicking on your Start button still shows Control Panel.

    Oh dear, I had added it myself but forgotten.

    Control panel is in
    Start menu,
    Windows system,
    Control panel.

    I've amended my previous post.

    You could also us a keyboard short cut. Windows Key + X Select Power Options.
