My new Pc doesnt respond to power options

Click on the search icon, type power. Click Edit power plan and then Advanced power settings. Expand sleep, then Allow wake timers and set it to disable. Try to put it to sleep again to see if it works. Of course you must have all drivers installed, if anything is missing or has a problem it may prevent the computer from entering sleep mode. Search for device and click to open Device Manager. There should not be any unknown device or anything with a yellow mark etc.
Unfortunately this hasn't worked is there anything else I can do ?
Try downloading and installing the chipset drivers from manufacturer (not Windows Update).
My new Hp desktop came with Win 10 installed and sleep worked fine. But after the big update came sleep quit working: would not sleep when it was supposed to and if you forced it to sleep it would wake up fairly soon (sometimes in less than a minute).
I have made the following changes and now sleep seems pretty reliable:
1. Did what Spapakons suggested last week but that didn't help: Disable "Allow wake timers" in Sleep in Advanced Power Settings.
2. Using Device Manager, accessed Power Management tabs for LAN (ethernet) controller and WiFi Controller. Disabled the option to allow the device to wake the computer. I also disabled the option to allow the system to turn off power to the controllers to save power (since this is a desktop PC) -- I suspect that this was not necessary.
Sleep seems fine now.
This worked for me. Also if you have the Realtek HD audio driver it may be that it was a problem for me in win 7 and win 8 I use the MS HD audio driver works well with 5.1 surround sys.
I apparently have Fast Startup enabled after upgrading to Win10. I would like to turn it off so I am not automatically logged on when I power up. (We don't have the IDs password protected on this desktop PC.) There are very simple instructions...
I have all the setting I can find that when I close lid to laptop it does nothing when plugged in. I have it set to do not sleep unless I tell it too period. Yes went through 'all' settings. So it will run scans, maintenance etc during night but...
power options change on their own when the laptop go's to sleep.

I had problems with my power options, in both Windows 8.1 as well as Windows 10 (clean install). I just have the balansed power mode set, but I would like to have performance enabled. Do you guys know of any way of enabling it? Here's a...
Wondered what these two settings are. I don't see them in W8.1 so they must be new.
