Two things:

After I updated to Windows 10, my laptop goes to sleep despite my setting that for 5 minutes. Then I have to log back in. Is this a bug?

I am no longer able to find the threads I have started on this site when I look at my account. Why have they stopped being listed? Now I can't find my posts!

Try this:

Right click on Desktop > Power and Sleep > Additional Power Settings > Choose when to turn off the display > Change advanced power settings > Restore plan defaults

If you had a plan set up previously, it might have gotten jacked up with the update.

I did that. Still no good. Specifically, I should be able to open the lid within 5 minutes and have the desktop on not the lock screen.

There was no check. Problem remains.

What seems to be happening is that the computer goes to sleep once I close the lid because I hear the fan turn off. I think that's why the log in screen comes up when I hit the power button. The problem is I have checked sleep settings and I have had 5, 10 and 15 min. delays, not 5 seconds!

Is the correction to be found in that area?

Yes but it goes to lockscreen rather than desktop. Why?

Have you specified a password is needed on wakeup? If so, that's why it goes to lockscreen. When searching, I see all your threads. Go to last page, they're earliest first. If you don't like the order, change it in your TSF Profile at Thread Display Mode

The problem is that it should sleep after 5 min. It doesn't. It sleeps immediately.

Did you choose "Balanced"? I've seen this problem when High Performance is chosen.

Somewhere in w10 settings there is a checkbox to enable the lock screen, think that timings etc are also available there.
there are a few places where you can make settings in two or more places for the same thing, can change settings in windows explorer itself as well as in preferences that effects the way it displays files and folders, often they cancel each other out.

As for your posts not being found, Mine haven't updated since some time in April.

Edit, just checked and of all the contributors here, Oscer1 and Corday are the only one with earlier posts beyond April, and theirs stop in may.

I am little confused. is it going into sleep when you are using computer or after your not using it. like when not moving the mouse for a second or two then it goes to sleep?

W10 has an area where you can set sleep/hibernate behavior, then a totally separate area(under personalization ?) where you can set the behavior of the login/lock screen.
Changing sleep or hibernate behavior does NOT change the behavior of the lock screen, this is one of my 'w10 is not ready for release' grumps.

same thing with file explorer, can turn off showing 'libraries' in explorer, but that also turns off 'show empty drives' elsewhere, which means that if you want to see empty drives (dvd drive with nothing in it for example) in explorer, you have no choice but to see every em-effin zip file on your computer as a directory.

Hi, sleep is controlled by powerconfig, to view your available states go to search and type command prompt right click on the returned command prompt and select "run as administrator" at the prompt copy paste (in red):-

powecfg -a > 0 & notepad 0 (press enter), please post the notepad output here.

In addition have a good read through this:-
