Your computer is not going to sleep, rather, the monitor is shutting off after 10 minutes of inactivity. It's another power setting.

Did wonder about that so also altered the monitor settings to turn off after 1 hour but it still turns off after 10 minutes, and altered it to turn off never same results..
