    I am about to throw my desktop out the window! Pc sleeps cant stop!

    Hey! I have had Windows 10 installed for months and I have been receiving previews for months with just normal little bugs. But I have a drive me crazy issue now! My desktop is going to standby/ sleep / hibernate every few mins while watching videos or when it sits idle no matter what the settings are and I have a lot of exp with computers so I have tried a lot of solutions but no help! Even using a small app tool called Don't Sleep and still have the same problem! It goes into the no input screen on my tv then signs me out and stays on login screen until I sign in. Arrrggghhhh! Any advice or help before I have to reset the pc would be great! Thanks!

    I still haven't got it fixed but Caffeine a small utility is working to keep my screen on. Also I did go into the registry and change the attributes like the one post has listed as a fix but still no dice so I think when I have time I'll got reset but wow what a pain I have 500gb of stuff to reinstall! Please if anyone has any ideas, advice, or info I would be very grateful! I am sure the settings are all correct in Control Panel, Pc Settings, and Screen Saver. Could my PSU cause this sleep issue or any other hardware? Thanks Again!
    BTW If anyone else is having this or a similar issue try the Caffeine utility it works great and has a timer or just enable +it's a no install app!

    Have you tried a different monitor? I have had some monitors going bad that have acted like what you describe. Also, check your video cables.

    Yeah I have tried other monitors but right now I am using a LG 65" 4k IPS TV. My cables are new and are HDMI 2.0. I am sure that its either my desktop hardware or Windows 10 cause I am using Caffeine a small utility that is working to keep my screen on. I am lost cause I have tried many solutions but nothing fixes the issue completely. Thanks for the reply and I appreciate any other help also!
