You're welcome.
Now you just need to test what programs you run and see how each affects auto sleep.
I'd start with Chrome based on what you said...assuming you play media in Chrome.

I play media using VLC, is that the same as Chrome?

Thanks again.

No, Chrome is a browser.
I saw it in your energy report ...
VLC is a media player, definitely test how that program affects auto sleep.

The laptop goes to sleep even with apps running, but only when prevent idling is changed to Allow computer to sleep with Plugged in?

I don't know why battery vs. plugged in would make a difference.
I don't have a laptop, but it could be something to prevent battery draining...
You could look in the VLC settings and see if you can find something that might control how it handles sleep.
