Windows 10: windows 10
After updating on 11/9/2016 I noticed a new service called cdpuserservice. This new service has been giving me all kind of error messages. I disabled it. Apparently it reset my screen saver. I reset it to what it was and the screen saver does work, but now the monitor won't cut off after so many minutes. Also there is no power plan. This is ok with me because I'm using a desktop. I would like however for my display to turn off after so many minutes. Microsoft thinks that the desktop is a laptop. Even if you have another desktop with an adapter card, it still thinks it's a laptop. That's the problem with a hybrid os. Now microsoft's os is almost like linux! A tinker toy of an operating system. You spend all day just trying to get it back to what it was! Very frustrating. Any thoughts?
My remarks / thoughts are just suggestive.
I reset it to what it was
What do you mean by "reset" ?

Can you image your system?
Are you fixed to stay with 10 home?

Are you actually using a 32bit OS and a Gateway laptop?
Disagree with Windows 10 build 14393 as problematic.
It is IMHO, quite stable.
Seems like many are getting into trouble with updating.
I wonder how many violate the directive by Microsoft to NOT turn off
the computer while updates are happening.
Unless technically talented - knowledgeable and experienced,
IMHO, it is better to use a device built for the operating system being used.

I have reinstalled an image from an earlier time. Microsoft installed this service. If you disable this service then the power options won't work! It's now downloading the latest cumulative update. We'll see what happens, but I'm not holding my breath.
Update: Noticed that by disabling the service that now I have no power options page. This is why the monitor won't shut down after 15 min timeout. Enabling everything connected to cdp service corrected everything, although I still receive error codes via services.msc. Have windows 10 pro 64 bit OS. And no I don't turn off while downloading and installing updates. It's a desktop which I turn off and is connected through a modem and router.
about the "turn off" wasn't directed personally ...
it was a statement referring that most issues seem to be related to updates.
You have 10 pro 64 bit - Great ! what build ?
Consider the download tool > Windows 10
And the Anniversary >
Updates can be controversial IMO,
the update process can take control of a system.
Microsoft is sending out too many updates.
One can ask - is an update necessary?
There are 2 power option pages? Do you have any?
I have no power options page

What are the error messages? Disabling that service appears to be a bad idea? Might be wise to try and fix the errors? And what prompted the "thinks its a laptop" comment? Specifics might help?
I have version 1607 and build 14393.447. After I reenabled some registry stuff purtaining to the cdp service the power options reappeared. I turned off the computer thereafter. I'm going to check to see if the monitor will cut off. There needs to be a way to control updates. I have a desktop and don't need all the extra baggage. Seems I'm spending more time getting it back to where I want it. I don't play games, don't use one drive or all the other thingy's microsoft puts out for tablets, laptops and all the other devices. Fixing to step away from the computer now.
At the moment no power options page has x on it and says windows can't view.
In services it says: 2ed27 but has also been 145697,2f54c and 2e1fe. Failed to read discription code 15100. Can't really find any worthwhile information on the web about this. I would again disable it if I could get my monitor to shut down in a specified time like it used to. Apparently it has to go through power options to work!
An update to this post. The monitor shuts down like it used to, but still have error in services. Service in running and on automatic. Can't change this to manual though. Go figure
