Auto shutdown means it's on a timer. Is that what you're asking about?

If you're asking about lengthening the time between clicking Shut Down & the computer actually turning off, why would you want to do that?

I see it as the time before the computer or laptop goes into energy saving mode or sleep.
Right click on a blank space on the desktop and on the pop up menu there are a couple it items. I am not in front of a W10 machine right now but it is something like 'preferences' and look for 'Power Options' (or type Power Options under the Start/Search button). There you will have a few options and advanced options under each. If it is a laptop then stay with the general laptop settings or battery saving modes but under advanced options you can set the times it takes to go into these modes, save end exit. For a desktop you can start by changing it to 'Performance' and then go into advanced to make the time changes. On both if you use a UPS for the desktop you should see different options for 'on battery' and 'on AC' and set them differently so that it saves battery better when on battery and keeps it on fully longer for when on AC power. Save and Exit.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Go to settings cog in start menu, then "System" then "Power & Sleep" (on left).
There are options for the screen and computer there.

If you prefer the old way type "Control Panel" in Search (it will find it before you finish typing) then choose "Power Options" and "Change plan settings" (on right in blue).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
