He's noticed it gives access to Control Panel and Leo says it has several settings to add and take away different features. But Aaron says the recent Windows 10 Creator's Update now puts his PC to sleep after a minute or two. How can find it in the new Control Panel? Leo says to look under the Power and Sleep settings. He went there and set it to 2 hours, but it still goes to sleep after a minute.

Diane from Chicago, IL

Diane wants to know if she should jump into the new Windows 10 Creators Update when it's available in the fall or if she should wait. Leo says that the Creators Update has very nice features, but big service pack style updates can be problematic. Leo usually advises waiting for a few days to see if any bugs show up. She should be patient and wait until she gets the notification that the update is ready for her computer. Then defer it a few days or week and see if any problems occur. If everything seems OK, then she can go ahead and install it.
