open your start menu
type "power saving" into the box at the bottom there.
click on "change power saving settings"
next to the plan you have selected, click "change plan settings"
set the dropdowns to never.
that should do it.

check for crapware that comes with the computer.
crapware as in useless programs that do the same damn things windows does.
there might be some power saving utility that is screwing with you.
or you can just uninstall anything you know is useless.
also decrapifier is a nice program.
