I've got 2 users with laptops that are both running Windows 10 on 64 bit laptops that their laptops will go to sleep randomly despite all of the power settings being set to 1 or 2 hour options.  The laptop will just go to sleep randomly despite these settings.  The only difference between the 2 laptops is that one of them had Windows 10 installed on it originally and the other one was upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10.  Any ideas what might cause this?  Thanks in advance!

 I haven't seen that on my laptop or two desktops running Windows 10.  I did turn sleep mode completely off on my laptop because 99% of the time I run it plugged in.  I was having problems losing my WiFi connection after sleep mode which may or may not be related to sleep mode, but I don't need it in any event.  If I start using it on the battery a lot, I'll turn it back on, but usually I just use my tablet when I'm away from home.  YMMV.

Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

My guess is drivers or compatibility issues.

Get all W10 compatible drivers for each system.

In particular, get chipset, storage, video, audio, and the Intel programs (RST, MEI, etc) drivers
