Brian, Display Settings

Open the Control Panel, double click on "Display" icon, then click on the "Screen Saver" tab. When that opens, in the "Power Settings" section at the bottom, click on the "Power" button, then the "Power Schemes" tab or similar. You can change your standby settings from there.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
