Hi! I've been having a major issue with my new computer. Whenever I'm working and need to walk away for a few, my computer will fall asleep but not all the way.

As in, my monitor will turn off, but my computer won't. Once the monitor turns off there's no way in turning it back on without having to do a hard restart of the computer, which I know isn't healthy or good for my computer.

I don't know what settings I could've messed with to have my computer not sleep correctly.

Can anyone help me? Any advice would be appreciated.

Did you try changing the settings on the power options? Go to Control panel > Power options > Change plan settings, and put them both never if you wish.
