Windows 10: Laptop goes to sleep after a minute of no use....

    Laptop goes to sleep after a minute of no use....


    Not sure if this is a Windows 10 issue or a laptop issue. I have the sleep mode after no use set to 15 minutes, but lately it goes to sleep after one minute or not moving the mouse or anything. Not sure what the problem and would love to see if anyone here has a solution. Thank you.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Fusion 15

    Is it suspending or just shutting off the screen?

    It's just shutting off the screen. Once I move the mouse, it comes back on.

    Hello Matty,

    It sounds like you should be able to set when you want to "Turn off the display" in your power plan settings to sort this for you.

    Yeah, I have it set to 15 minutes. Both of them. Still goes to sleep after about a minute of no use. Very annoying.

    A minute is the default time for screen saver. You might double check to see if you may just happen to have screen saver turned on, but using the "Blank" screen saver making it look like your displays turned off.

    One more thing to check. If you have say Intel graphics, check your Intel graphics settings like below to make sure it's not turning off your display(s) overriding what you have set in Windows power plan settings.
