    okay, I've got version 10.0 build 10240 but windows has no update. I should mention that this is a work machine and the IT guys (who are scratching their heads on this problem) may have altered the updater.
    You could try updating to the latest version, to see if that helps -- if you're allowed to do that on your work computer. You can download the ISO from MS TechBench, right-click to "mount", and run it from within the W10 OS, by double-clicking setup.exe. Um, but this won't work for Enterprise edition-that's a whole different animal, I think.

    Have you try to do a clean boot, it might be a third party software the cause

    Hi, it may help to track what's causing your PC to sleep if you look in the event log for
    event ID 42 in System log from source Kernel-Power = sleep

    event ID 1 in System log from source Power-Troubleshooter for resume
    which are respectively the last and first logs entries upon sleeping/waking up

    I was hoping to fix it in windows because don't sleep doesn't seem to differentiate between plugged in and not plugged in mode, but I'll give it a shot. Thanks!
    Not only that, but now it does a shutdown in stead of sleep. That is NOT what I am looking for!

    I now found out that the option "Inhibit System Sleep when Torrents are active" of qBittorrent does work. So I keep a torrent active all the time (at a very low bandwith), and my laptop stays awake.

    Update: the problem still exists. I have set everything in group policy that may have to do something with sleeping to prevent sleeping, but nothing helps. I have reinstalled Windows 10, but the problem persists. I have installed Windows 10 from the same DvD iso file on another laptop, but there the problem does not occur.

    So it seems to be something specific to my laptop. I have tried to update the BIOS (or rather: reinstall the current version, because there is no newer version), but the update tool refuses to do that, just because the current version is already installed.

    I am now considering to replace the mother board. But isn't that overkill?

    Please comment!

    TIA,

    Well, that is not what I see. Last night, I had event 42 at 00:24:32, system enters sleep by application API. No clue which application.
    Two seconds later, I see event 107, the system resumes from sleep. This is odd, because it simply seems to be not true. The next entry is timed at 07:58:32, at which time I woke the system with the power button. This is event 1, but that seems to have nothing to do with sleeping, because it is about the system time being synchronized with the hardware clock.

    You may be able to investigate this further by using
    Powercfg
    at a command prompt.
    Powercfg /?
    - lists all the parameters.
    E.g.
    powercfg /lastwake
    powercfg /waketimers
    powercfg /devicequery
    - try
    powercfg /devicequery /?
    for a list of further options for this

    Thanks for your quick response!

    powercfg does not tell me much: /lastwake: Wake History Count - 0
    /waketimers: There are no active wake timers in the system.

    Plus: my problem is not that the system wakes up, but that it goes to sleep even when I set everything I can think of to not going to sleep.
