    PC is turning completely off? Set to turn off screen at 10 minutes

    I use the PC, walk away, and everytime it sits awhile it is off when I go back. I have to push power button, it boots showing the bios screen just like it actually is completely off.

    There are no lights on, the PC does not react to keyboard or mouse, only the power button which seems to be starting the PC.

    I went to power settings and see nothing odd.

    Win10 Home and Pro, Win10 Insider Preview, Win7 Home, Linux Mint

    Control Panel, Power Options.

    The bad part of adjusting just one thing is other things such as powering down the HDD will interfere, have to go through every setting to see what needs changing to accomplish what you want. And on Notebooks one has to make separate changes in the sections on When on battery or When on AC power.

    This is a desktop. I did reset power options.
    Will see what happens.

    I am posting a lot of win10 questions because I am switching my wife from old win7 PC to this newer win 10 pc, and not everything is smooth going. There have been problems.

    Another weird issue, the nvidia 8400gs, device manager said need to restart to enable driver, but over 10 restarts it always says must restart to enable. So I went to nvidia and am installing newest video driver now, will see what happens.
