    I am trying to stop my laptop from hibernating when I close the lid “on battery”.  I have changed the settings to “Never” “on battery”and Windows keeps resetting it back to 20 minutes.  Any suggestions?

      Try changing “Additional power settings” > “Choose what closing the lid does”.

      cheers, Paul

        Thanks checked but both options under “When I close the lid” are set to “Sleep.”

        Still not sure why Windows 10 resets settings under Advanced Power Settings/Sleep/Hibernate After from “Never” to 20 minutes.

      Maybe to prevent you running out of battery when sleeping?
      Can you set it to 60 mins?

      cheers, Paul

      Do you have any preloaded power managment software that you are using with this laptop?
