    8.1 sleep issue fixed


    I had set my computer to go to sleep after 2 hours.

    I got tired of it sleeping & changed the sleep setting to "Never".

    It still went to sleep after 2 hours.

    So I checked in advanced settings & found that "hybrid sleep" was turned on.
    I shut it off & my computer quit going to sleep.

    Just thought I would post my solution to my issue in case anybody else was having the same problem.

    Once you go into a Command Window and do 'powercfg /hibernate off'. It will stop the behavior.
