    Power Options Issues

    Good morning forum,

    So this is one I can not figure out or find a way to solve. I found that there was a update for this for the Tech Preview, but not for what we upgraded to from the free upgrade.

    Issue is that no matter what I try / change the monitor to turn off, or the the PC to sleep, it just never does. Before the upgrade from WIN 7 it was working fine. I upgraded 3 other devices, 2 pc's and tablet, and the power options are working fine on those 3. I have changed the times in the power options app I guess you would call it, (settings, system, power & sleep). I also tried changing it in the old style power options in the control panel, and even advanced power options. I can change the times, 1 min, 5 min, a hour, etc. etc., it saves and everything looks good. It just never happens. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You tenforums

    Windows 10 (duh)

    I've experienced this also. Now it's working ok again, but I can't direct you to the specific thing I did to get it work again (and far faster than in previous versions of Windows)

    The only thing I've changed in power settings (default balanced plan) was to put require a password when wake up to off. So it's not this.

    But I did lots of other stuff, like disabling the lock screen. Disabling some services. Disabling some system scheduled tasks. Disabling some drivers. And not activating any auto-update feature for my programs (firefox, flash, etc).
    Looks to me as a Windows-issue, you should not have to cripple the OS to get basic function like sleep working again. Best bet is to wait for SR1. If that won't fix it, I will investigate it further and post a workaround.

    I have the same problem. Hard to believe there is no fix. But I've tried everything. I cannot change the setting so that it does not require a password after I wake it. My screen indicates that the change has been saved, but nothing changes after my pc goes to sleep. Still requires a password. The same for the setting that allows one to control the number of minutes/hours before the pc goes to sleep. Nothing changes after I save my requested time durations.
