    Hp Envy Recline refuses to start screensaver and power settings do not work.

    I have an HP Envy Recline 27" AIO touchscreen computer. The screensaver will not activate and and power settings do not work. It is supposed to go to sleep after 15 minutes of non-use. The screensaver never starts and the computer never goes to sleep. The computer is up to date on all patches. Any suggestions on where to look. I turn off the laser mouse just in case it is vibrating enough to keep the computer from going to sleep. I can force it to sleep by hitting the power button, but when I get up in the morning the computer is always awake.

    No problems with anything else on the system.

    Caveman,

    Check the system BIOS/UEFI for Wake on LAN settings. Since you shouldn't need this in a home setup you can safely disable it.
