ThinkPad Yoga 14 (20FY) Ignoring Win 10 Sleep Mode Settings

While I like most things about my Yoga 14 notebook, it has this annoying habit of going to sleep about 1 minute, even when it's plugged into a OneLink+ docking station.  

 

I have the OS updated to the latest Windows 10 Creator's Edition and all device drivers up-to-date.   It's done this since I bought the machine earlier this year and I haven't been able to figure-out how to get it to honor the sleep settings in Windows.   Is there a BIOS setting or something that is forcing it to go to sleep after 1 minute?

I finally resolved this issue using "Solution 2: Fix the problem by editing your registry" in the following blog post:

My laptop finally stays awake longer than 2 minutes.  I'll have to do some experimentation to figure-out if the normal Windows 10 sleep settings will override the recommended settings changes from the blog post or not.
