Windows 10: Power Options Issues

    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

    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.

Hi. I updated from 8.1 to 10 and have lost all of my power options. The only one I have is "balanced". Is there any way I can enable "high performance"? Your help is appreciated! Joseph

Wondered what these two settings are. I don't see them in W8.1 so they must be new.
