As the title says, the power options just act straight up weird.

I currently have it set to turn off my displays at 3 minutes of inactivity, and put the computer to sleep after 10 minutes.

Sometimes, the displays won't turn off after 3 minutes, but it will then put the computer to sleep after 10 minutes while the displays are still on. More often, it will turn the displays off, but won't ever put the computer to sleep.

I really don't understand it. Why wouldn't the computer go to sleep? Wouldn't any activity turn the displays back on? And so if they don't come back on, why wouldn't it go to sleep? And why wouldn't the displays turn off, and then it goes to sleep?

Any idea what's causing this? Really bizarre.
