My Yoga 910 laptop does not sleep after being idle for 15 minutes as set in power/sleep settings.
It sleeps if I go to Start->Power->sleep.
Looks like this audio stream is preventing it from going to sleep-
[DRIVER] Realtek High Definition Audio(SST) (INTELAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0299&SUBSYS_17AA3801&REV_1000\4&13ab7ca7&0&0001)
An audio stream is currently in use.
I tried powercfg -requestsoverride for this driver using name and id as suggested on the web but that did not help.
I also reset my windows 10. This audio stream is still there on fresh install. I don't have any accessories connected to the laptop.

I solved this issue by disabling microphone in settings. Now powercfg -requests does not show anything and the laptop sleeps as expected when idle.
Anyone knows how to find out which process/app is using the microphone all the time?

If you've enabled Cortana, that's likely the issue. She's listening.
