How do I prevent system idling when playing music.

How do I prevent system idling when playing music.

The Advanced Settings under my Power Options for Multimedia Settings is already set to "Prevent idling to sleep" [when sharing media], but the system doesn't seem to recognize that the music is actually playing. Is there a setting in Spotify that I've missed?

Hey @segrias,


Thanks for reaching out.


We currently don't have an option to prevent your PC from going into Sleep mode and since this is a process handled by the OS, it's best to reach out to Microsoft Support for further help.
