    Computer going to sleep when it is not supposed to


    On my power plan I have this settings:
    Turn Of display: 5 minutes
    Sleep: Slepp After: Never.

    This settings are equal in battery mode and plugged in.

    The problem is that the computer enters in sleep when the display is turned off (after the 5 minutes)

    Any idea why?

Hi, After updating from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 my PC doesn't seem to want to sleep. I've done some googling and cant really find anything. I found a command prompt thing I should do. I did that and it said nothing was keeping my computer awake. Any advice or ideas? Thanks, Mitch
