By default, when your computer remains inactive for some minutes, it will automatically go to Sleep mode and turn off the display. Auto Sleep sometimes brings us great convenience, like when we have to walk away from the computer and don’t want to shut down the computer.

However, it could be quite annoying if your computer goes to Sleep at all the wrong times or if you have trouble waking your computer from Sleep mode. Fortunately, you can control when or whether your computer goes to Sleep. In this page, we will show you how to set your computer to Never Sleep with Windows 10. There are two methods for your choices.
