Windows 10: Display turns off after exactly 10 minutes of inactivity
Display turns off after exactly 10 minutes of inactivity
I have used this site before for help with my computer problems and it never failed, but now I can't find the answer, hope this thread helps
I have had my pc for 5 years now, it always worked fine.
Last week the monitor started to turn off every 10 minutes while watching a movie or playing music. The pc didn't shutted down, only the display turned off and the sound of the movie continued, it didnt even stuttered. So im discarding a heat up of the system. I have cheked the energy plan and they are set to never turn of the display and never put the system in suspension.
I have reinstalled drivers, chequed all conecctions of the pc, everything looks without issue so i guess is not a hardware problem.
I havent isntalled anything new, no new hardware, nothing out of the orndinary
I guess Windows somehow is not recognizing the energy plan
What can I do to resolve this issue?

Ok, i can't for the life of me figure out the problem. I have my settings set to where my PC is not support to go to sleep. All the settings are set to NEVER. Yet, when i'm gone for 5-6 minutes, the computer just shuts down or something. I press...
After upgrading my laptop from Windows 8.1 to 10 last week. My laptop sleep unexpectedly after 1-2 mins of inactivity. Yes, it's sleep, not just turning the monitor off.
