How to change when your computer goes to sleep

Your computer is not as smart as you think it is. In the case of deciding when to go to sleep it can not read your mind and put itself to sleep so that battery life is not wasted. So why should you use sleep mode at all?

Sleep mode puts your PC into a low-power state, and resuming from sleep happens very quickly. Sleep mode does draw battery power, but very slowly which makes it the ideal state to leave your computer in if you want to start using it quickly (You can ready here on the differences between sleep, hibernate and shut down).

Here is how to set up your sleep settings for your computer so it goes to sleep when you want it to.

  1. Open the Control Panel
  2. Search for the word Power in the search box in the top right corner of the Control Panel dialog box
  3. Search Power

  4. Select Edit power plan
  5. You will now see a screen which shows you how your current power plan settings are configured. Change these settings to suite when you want your computer to go to sleep
  6. Edit Power Plan
