Windows 10: Sleep Mode Solved

    Sleep Mode

    I have just got a new HP laptop, running on Creators update. I have all the same power settings as my old laptop, ie sleep after 10 minutes. The problem is that when I leave it for 20 minutes, the screen etc has gone to sleep, but I have to log in again to make it work.
    Before, a shake of the mouse would bring everthing back as it should be after any length of time away. Can anyone please tell me what I am doing wrong.
    Thank you
