Few days ago, I have shown how to stop Microsoft Surface screen rotation over to landscape mode. Today, I will talk about another annoying thing which is sleep mode, because by default Microsoft Surface will go to sleep mode every 2 minutes. After that you have to turn it back on, pass the lock screen and login every single time. This will happen no matter if you Surface is connected to power supply or if its working on battery. With this tutorial you can easily extend the sleep mode time or disable it completely.

Step 3: In this new window, you can change the time that’s need to pass before your Microsoft Surface goes to sleep mode. Click on drop-down menu under Put the computer to sleep and then choose the appropriate time. My suggestion is that you keep your time for On battery up to 15 minutes maximum and for Plugged in you can choose up to 1 hour.

    Hot damn it worked! Thank you! This was driving me nuts and a lot of websites were telling me to download some scam program to stop it from going to sleep.
