How To Change When Your Windows 10 PC Goes Into Sleep Mode

Customise Time Before Sleep

This Windows 10 tutorial will show you how to change when your PC goes into sleep mode. 

Windows 10 sleep mode is a low power mode that your PC will go into if you haven’t used it after a set amount of time.

Sleep mode is a great power saving mode if you do not want to turn your PC off and will save battery on a laptop. 

It also enables you to power back on the PC a lot quicker than hibernation mode.

You can customise Windows 10 Power & Sleep settings and adjust the time before your PC goes into sleep mode to suit your needs.

To adjust sleep mode time: 

1. Right-click on the Windows 10 start menu icon (bottom left-hand corner of your screen) >
Power options 

2. You will see an option under ‘Sleep’ which says ‘When plugged in, PC Goes to sleep after’ > Click drop-down arrow > Select chosen time


****Top Tip****
You can also open the Windows 10 Power & sleep settings by searching power in the Windows Search Box
