sleep mode in windows 10 goes through bios

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!

Your device enters hibernation after a certain amount of time. In hibernation, energy savings are nearly as high as if your device was off. If that does not matter, but time counts, disable hibernation in the advanced energy options.
