hi

so, can someone please explain - I've got a lenovo laptop with windows 10
if i put it to sleep & wake it up within a few minutes it will wake up right away - if i wake it up after an hour or so it will go through the bios screen (the lenovo logo showing all over the screen) which will caouse the wake a further delay of a few more seconds before waking up
how do I prevent this deeper sleep? is this called hybrid sleep? I have hybrid sleep disabled under the "balanced" battery plan I believe I'm in (in general this is all a bit confusing tbh - advanced settiings would take me to the balanced plan while if i click the battery icon in the task bar then the gauge is set to "best performance" which doesn't even show at the advanced settings - there's only "Airplane", "Balanced (Active) & "Timers off (Presentation)")

Please shed some light on this & say where one could control these settings

thanks!
