So the problem I am having is the opposite of what most people speak about on here regarding sleeping and screen shutoff. Mine refuses to sleep or shut the screen off when plugged in. I've made sure the power settings are set to do so. But still, the laptop will sit there all day with the screen on and in a wake state. I've tried using TLP and no using it to no effect.

    What happens when you manually Suspend your computer? Maybe check dmesg before and after, see if there are interesting errors? Those might be a start to google on. – Peter Uithoven Dec 17 '17 at 22:12
