The sleep timer in Windows 10 controls when your PC goes into “Sleep” mode. This helps prevent screen burn-in, and keeps your computer from using more power than it needs to.

This is especially useful if you’re on an unplugged laptop, and want to keep your PC alive for as long as possible.

By default, most Windows 10 computers will only go to sleep after two hours spent idle. Luckily, you can change this at any time.

1. Press the Windows key + Q to bring up the search menu, and type “Sleep” into it.

Open the “Power & sleep menu.

You can also choose how long you’d like the screen to stay on before going dark.
