Stop my computer from shutting down when it's idle

I have gone through the entire settings options and marked never as long as it's plugged in, however, since Windows did another update my laptop goes off to sleep when it's idle and I don't know where to find the option in settings to stop it from sleeping or rather shutting down completely. I hate having to keep logging in and reopening tabs I'm working with all the time. This is not a shared laptop so I would like it to stay on until I turn it off for the day.

Thank you for your help.
