Windows 10 no sleep option

I have begun installing a mobile app on Dell Venue Pro and Microsoft Surface 3 tablets, and in both cases there is no power option for Sleep from Start > Shutdown.  The user can briefly press the power button to make it Sleep, but I also need it in the list that includes Shut Down, Log Off, Lock, etc.  In searching websites, I see a lot of people saying that is a driver issue, and/or it is due to upgrading to Win10 without getting the new drivers, etc.  But with both of these models, they came from the manufacturer with Win10 installed, so I would have thought any needed drivers would be there--especially with the Surface 3 from Microsoft themselves.  I think they both use Win10 Home edition, but I'm not sure.  What can I do to make the Sleep option appear?  TIA

Go to Control Panel, Power Options, Edit Plan Settings, Change Advanced Power Settings.

This brings up the Power Options Windows.

Look in the Power Buttons and Lid settings and adjust as needed.
Look in Sleep settings and adjust as needed

Are these settings available to you (they should be).
