Windows 10: OS sleeps after 15 minutes of being idle
OS sleeps after 15 minutes of being idle
I have tried everything. I have changed to never in every area that is offered by my system. I have even changed it in hkey and STILL at various (meaning when it feels the need to change) it either changes or sleeps after 15 minutes. Id done it three times already, this last time all the settings were still set for never and it still slept.
How can I stop my OS from sleeping indefinitely. I dont like the sleep option, never have. Never used it. Dont want to start. Turn on turn off. Im good with that...
If anyone has any other suggestions other than what I have already tried I would greatly appreciate that.
Power & sleep
clicked additional power settings
Advanced SystemCare Power Plan/change plan settings
change advanced power settings
Allow hybrid sleep/off
Allow wake timers/enable
Power buttons and lids
Never and off
Turn off display after/never
Enable adaptive brightness/off
I found an article that told how to dive into the HKEY and stop it from happening. nothing. still slept.
Hello, suggest you inspect your event log (event viewer) and look for event ID 42 which is recorded when your PC sleeps.
That may help identify what's doing this.
Meanwhile, to hopefully prevent this (as a workaround so you can use your PC), you can download and run 'Don't Sleep' (freeware).
There are many many threads on this forum about sleep issues - please use these as a resource for research.

I found an event id 42 but it didn't offer anything that I can see to change. I have changed the hkey before and it still didn't work. I think I will try the don't sleep until this new system that is alive deletes it like it does the download I added to be able to control my files and folders:

Earlier today I was downloading files from my browser and my computer went to sleep halfway in. This random sleeping happens occasionally. The event viewer doesn't mention anything about overheating, it always says it's just idle (event 42):
