Windows Wont sleep unless i automatically put it in sleep

Hi,
So pretty much what the title says.
I have it set to sleep after 30mins which it doesnt, and yet if i go to the start menu and choose sleep myself it will.


Any ideas why?

Hi Mitch.

You mean Manually put it to sleep.

This is my suggestion, go to Power Options, on your preferred power option, put it all to Never.
Then click Change Advance power options, browse the sleep option, Make sure to put the "Sleep After: to Never.

I have attached a picture for you to refer.
