    many people have this issue and the most popular resolution is to reset your power plan to balanced default, it sort of makes sense when you consider the issue. If the CPU is set for max performance then every time there is cpu activity (which in w10 seems to be always) it runs the cpu at max even when it is not required - a bit like putting your car in neutral and slamming down the accelerator just to run the radio.....engine (cpu) at max

    also it seems that win10 wants to rev this back up after an update so keep an eye on it on certain systems, I have an Alienware Lappy and a very high end desktop and only see this issue on the AW lappy

    hope this helps
    Y-You were 100% correct...

    I restored default power plan settings and it right back to normal usage.

    Alright then, is it possible make the monitor stay on for longer than 10 freaking minutes and keep it awake for longer than half an hour without the CPU usage spike?

    glad you got it sorted, yes you can go into the power plan and set your own custom setting etc, trial and error

    Interesting to note that although this solution works in 95% of cases it did not work on my Alienware laptop, I don't use it that often so haven't really sat down and had a real go at sorting it, maybe some day I will starting off with a BIOS reset to default and then start removing various chipset applications - and other software that I don't really need, I am sure one of them is the culprit
