    Can't stop PC from sleeping!


    I'm on the latest Insider build. I don't want my PC to sleep nor the monitors to sleep nor the hard drives. Unlike most other issues with sleep and Win10, my problem isn't waking it up but keeping it awake.

    Microsoft seem to have scattered the sleep options all over the place. I methodically worked my way round, starting in Settings where I can quite simply select no sleep for both the computer and the monitors. Simple? Nope. I found relevant settings in these places:

    Right click desktop and choose display settings
    Also from display settings choose advance power settings
    Control Panel Power Settings
    Change Plan settings

    Maybe these are all links to the same settings but in any event whichever route I take, the PC still sleeps or the monitors still turn off or both. Or the screen saver kicks in.

    I wonder if the UEFI bios is over-riding Windows? God knows but how can I keep my PC awake overnight please?

    Check to see if your screen saver is set to "Blank." If so, change it to "None."
