Windows 10: sleep problem

    sleep problem

    I have Windows 10 x64 home and have sleep turned turned to never, turn the display off set to never and screen saver set to none. Today I left my computer on while I went shopping and when I came back my screen was off with an amber light in the bottom corner. When I moved the mouse the screen came back on. How do I correct this?

    You are not alone. I've had this on several computers. Never found a fix.
    I'll follow this and hope someone comes up with an answer.

    Found this last night: Power Options - Add Console lock display off timeout
    Console lock display off timeout is the amount of minutes Windows will wait idle with no activity while on the lock screen before timing out and automatically turning off the display.
    It's for Windows 8 but applies to Windows 10 as well. From reading the info there it doesn't sound like it applies but the symptoms sound like what we are seeing. I've got a couple systems at work I'm going to try this on and see what happens.

    You might want to give it a try. You can always turn it off again if nothing changes.
