    Laptop keeps going into sleep mode despite settings


    When I'm idle for several minutes my laptop will go to sleep by itself

    power settings are all switched to never (never go to sleep, never dim screen etc)

    Screensaver set to none with maximum possible waiting time

    battery is full with charger plugged in

    thanks
