    At lock screen, displays shut off after 20 seconds, comes back on


    If I lock my computer, after 20 seconds or so, the displays turn off, then come back 2 seconds later. The timing is consistent. I also notice that it resets my lockscreen image slideshow to the original image everytime it cycles. It does this on both my monitors (i.e. an HDTV and a computer monitor; the TV is hooked up through the DVI port and the monitor is hooked up to the HDMI port if that matters). I have power settings set to "AMD Ryzen Performance" but it does it on every other power profile.

    It seems like it has to be a setting as it is so punctual. It's not a huge deal, but I would still like to know what is causing this as it is driving me crazy.

    My system is as follows:
    Windows 10 Pro (1909)
    Asus Prime x570-p motherboard
    PowerColor Red Dragon Radeon RX 590
    Ryzen 5 3600x
    Oloy 16 GB Ram 3200 I think

    :)

  2. Ads displayed in Lock Screen

    Hi Subhadeep,

    Windows Spotlight is an option for the lock screen background that displays different background images and occasionally offers suggestions on the lock screen.
    To turn off Windows Spotlight, go to Settings, clickPersonalization,
    select Lock screen, under Background select a different lock screen background.

    To avoid messages on your lock screen, you can consider the following:

    • Make sure that the "Get fun facts, etc" on your Settings is turned off.
    • Disable “suggestions” that appear as notifications. To do so, follow these steps go to
      Settings, then select System, then click
      Notifications & actions
      and turnoff “Show me the Windows welcome experience after updates and occasionally when I sign in to highlight what’s new and
      suggested”.
    • Disable “tips, tricks, and suggestions”. Head to Settings then select
      System, then click Notifications & Actions and disable the “Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows” option.

    Don't hesitate to reply on this thread if further assistance is needed.

    Lock Screen keeps changing

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Windows Spotlight picks the photos from Bing and displays them in the lock screen. I understand that you have set a picture and it is getting changed automatically.

    I suggest you to follow the steps to select the Picture that you want to be displayed on the lock screen. Please follow the steps mentioned below to set a Picture to lock screen:

    1. Press and hold Windows + I key on the keyboard to open settings.
    2. Click on Personalization.
    3. Click on Lock screen.
    4. Click on the drop down under Background and select
      Picture.
    5. Click on Browse and select the picture that you want to set.

    Hope it helps.

    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.

    Hi,

    Since you're having an issue with the brightness of your Lock Screen, we suggest uninstalling the display adapter from the Device Manager. Just follow the steps below:

    • Select Device Manager.
    • Locate and expand Display adapter.
    • Right-click on the display device and click uninstall.

    Note: Please restart your computer after performing the steps above.

    If the issue persists, download and install latest display driver from the computer manufacturer's website.
