yoga 710 enters sleep mode every 2 minutes

I have a new yoga 710 and a week ago (i think maybe it was after a windows update) it started getting into sleep mode every 2 minutes (screen goes black, i have to press a button and enter password). sleep mode is set to 10 minutes on battery and hibernate mode is set to 180 minutes so i dont know what is the problem. help will be appriciated since i cant work on the computer without touching the mouse every 2 minutes.

Hi R_M,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Maybe we can start initially checking Windows 10's screen lock settings as suggested here.

Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization

 

 

Else we can proceed if restoring default power setting or placing it to never would prevent the auto sleep.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards
