Hey, I have been wanting to turn off the auto sleep option so my computer won't fall asleep whenever I am away for too long. I am trying to open the power settings in the windows settings app but every time I attempt to do that, it crashes. This is repeatable and this also occurs even after restarting my computer.

I have included files of my system information as well as a video of the bug.

I just experienced this issue, and it's frustrating. 

Here's what I did to accomplish something similar for similar reasons:

1.  Hit windows key

2.  Type control panel

3.  Open Control Panel

4.  Click System & Security

5.  Click Power Options

6.  Click Change Settings next to your power plan.

 

Hopefully that helps, and thankfully MS left the old school control panel in windows 11 for situations like this.

same issue its a bug they should fix it soon
