isn't there a setting for

time? How long you want it in standby? I don't use it but I think it should be there

This would be better posed in the help forums but

I'd think you're dealing with an advanced power management issue and your first focus should be in your BIOS and drivers. You'll need to provide proper hardware information and pre-answer a few questions such as "Did it ever work?" and "if so, what recent changes or updates were done?" Also be sure to note your OS and if it came factory installed on your PC.
