How to Choose How Long Your Windows 10 PC Waits Before Sleeping
How to Set When Windows 10 Turns off Your Screen.

Leaving your display screen on for extended periods of your time wastes power—and, on a laptop, battery life. Thankfully, Windows 10 makes it super easy to make a decision how long the screen should stay .

Windows 10 allows you to decide how long the screen will stay when the PC is plugged in and when it’s running off the battery. Of course, if you’re employing a desktop PC, you won’t see the choice for battery power.

First, click the beginning Menu and choose the gear icon to open the Settings. (You also can open the Settings window by pressing Windows+i on your keyboard.)

click the start menu and select settings

Next, select “System” from the Settings window.

Select “Power & Sleep” from the sidebar.

select power and sleep

If you’re using a desktop, you’ll see one drop-down for “When Plugged In” under both “Screen” and “Sleep,” while if you’re using a laptop or tablet, you’ll see a second drop-down for “On Battery Power.”

To control when the screen turns off, select a drop-down under “Screen.”

Now, select one of the time lengths to decide how long the screen will stay on.

Do this for both “On Battery Power” and “When Plugged In” if you’ve got them. That’s all there’s thereto .

Keep in mind that the screen turning off isn’t an equivalent as “Sleep.” The PC remains on even when the screen is off, so confirm to customize the Sleep settings, too.
