surface keeps turning itself off when screen is off?

When I turn my surface screen off it is set to go into standby.

However, when I turn the screen off (or let it turn its own screen off after sitting idle), then after a few minutes the surface shuts itself off. This sucks.

1. When I then go to turn it on it takes forever
2. Why the hell is it shutting itself off to begin with.

I think this started when I installed and then uninstalled genymotion yesterday.
If anyone else is having this issue try a system restore. I still experience the issue but now only 2 or 3 times a day instead of every timer I go to use the device.
