    Angry Power Settings Making Me Crazy

    Perhaps what I'm trying to do isn't possible on the T100, but it's a setting I use with all my laptops and would like to use here too, but it doesn't seem to work on the T100.

    Here's what I'm trying to do: When plugged in, the device never sleeps BUT the backlight on the screen turns off after 15 minutes. In Windows 8.1 the setting is fairly simple as I place the sleep setting to "Never" and then in the advanced power options, under screen, set the screen off time to 15 minutes. On every other device I have, this works perfectly. On the T100, as soon as I change the screen off time to 15 minutes, it automagically changes the sleep time to 15 minutes. If I then change the sleep time manually back to never, it changes the screen off time to never. I know that this is a tablet, and not a laptop, but it seems to me that the backlight of the screen should still be able to be controlled separately from the system.

    Am I doing something wrong or is this the way the T100 really functions?

    Thanks!

    You have to disable connected standby to enable actual screen sleeping and machine sleeping seperately IIRC.

    Its stupid, but it is what it is.

    It is the way that ALL connected standby enabled Windows machines work currently.

    Then I guess there is no way to do it since there's no way to disable connected standby. Awesome. Thanks Microsoft!
