I made a mistake

when I typed in powercfg- h I did not put the space in the correct place.

So I did the command powercfg -a again and now I get this:
The following sleep states are avaible on this system: Hibernate
The following sleep states are Not avaible on this system:
Standby (S1)
The current power policy has disabled this standby state.
Standby (S2)
The system firmware does not support this standby state.
The current power policy has disabled this standby state.
Standby (S3)
The current power policy has disabled this standby state.
Hybrid sleep.

I do not know anything about computer other then how to use the editing software and to go online etc.

but the fact that it says system firmware does not support this standby state! could that be it which is causing my screen to go black every few minutes?

Thank you!

Yes, go to Power Options/Change Plan Settings/Change Advanced power settings. Scroll down to Display and expand it, then expand the next item, Turn off display after, and set it to Never. Click apply and exit. Maybe this will work.

nope

Thanks, but no. Done it many time without the desired result. I even have changed that display setting this morning to 4 hours instead of never in case that would make a difference but it has not.

The message: The firmware does not support this standby state. Do you know what that means? Could that be part of the problem?

Thanks

I tried powercfg -h off

Because you said to pay attention on the space between powercfg -"..." I have retried something I had found online as a solution which is cmd and then enter and then type powercfg -h off. This time nothing happened as was said in the advice, which I see as a good thing lol. Lets see if it is going to make a difference. It should have turned of the sleep mode. I am just repeating what I have read because truly I have no idea what I am talking about.

I will sit for a few minutes and see if my display stays on. Will keep you posted.

Thanks.

Bianca can you go to your BIOS, or does Lenovo have a setup utility you access from within Windows? You need to try to get ACPI standbby mode S3 set in your BIOS.

right

Ok, I have no idea how to get into my BIOS or the answer to your question if I have access from within Windows. Are you able to guide me step by step?

Thank you.

Only generically. When you reboot there is maybe a Lenovo logo screen or something like that which shows first. On that screen, normally at the bottom is a list of key to press for various operations, setup, boot order or similar. You want to press what it says for SETUP or BIOS.
when you get there it will look confusing. Along the top are different items you highlight with the arrow keys, such as Peripherals, Advanced, or similar. You need to find one about hardware or onboard setting. Scroll to find a page for stand-by settings. when you find it find one for ACPI settings and standby modes. When you find it, you may need to highlight it with the arrow keys and will get a sub windows which hopefully will list disabled/S1, S2, and S3. you want to see if you can enable S3. When done use Esc key back to the main window and press F10 and Yes to save settings and restart.

Your BIOS may have different terminology, if you fell uneasy about this, take a photo of what your BIOS looks like so we can give more specific instructions. Don't change anything if you are unsure. We are here to help.
