Regardless of the outcome regarding any NVDA setting, Zahra is right that you still need to tweak your power settings to make your sleep when on battery power longer than one minute.

Control Panel, Power Options, Change plan settings link.  Then tweak the two dropdowns under On battery to extend the amount of time before the screen gets turned off and the computer goes to sleep.

Also consider opening Windows 10 Settings, Accounts, Sign-in Options pane, navigating to the dropdown for Require Sign-in - When you've been away, when should Windows require you to sign in again?, and changing the value to Never rather than the default of When PC wakes up from sleep.  This really depends on whether it's your computer, somewhere that only you have access to it, or if it's a work computer in a cubicle where anyone could walk up and wake it from sleep.

Yep.  Discipline.  Accountability.  Joy.  Fun.  Responsibility.

That's what life is about.  And in that order.
