  1. Change Lock Screen Display Off Timeout in Windows 10


    I tried both options and this still doesn't work for me... although my computer is timing out after 2 minutes. I set my screensaver, power options, etc etc. all to never turn off/lock out and it still happens. Any ideas?

    :)

    LOCK SCREEN TIME OUT

    See if you have the option for “Console lock display off timeout” to change the amount of time to lock screen.

    Change Lock Screen Display Off Timeout in Windows 10

    Hello win10noob, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    Just to verify, this tutorial is for while you are on the lock screen from Win+L.

  5. @Brink I don't think your phrasing is actually what you mean? You can't change computer settings from the lock screen as far as I know. This tutorial is about changing the amount of time it takes for the computer to timeout to "console lock display off," which is set to 1 minute by default and which sends me to the lock screen. I know the lock screen is also accessible by pressing Win+L but this tutorial is certainly not meant to be applied while I am on the lock screen.

    I have made sure my display isn't turning off for any other reason (screen saver, sleep, etc), and gone through and completed the steps in this tutorial, including the registry edit that places the console lock display off option in advanced power settings. Changing the numbers to any value in this menu has no impact on how long the computer takes to lock & turn off the display after no action - it is still about 2 minutes. Could there be another computer setting causing it to lock up'?

    EDIT: I have a second monitor attached by HDMI, which appears to be the cause of the timeout. When I detach the monitor the computer does not lock up.

    It won't send you to the lock screen when the timeout has been reached.

    Console lock display off timeout is the amount of minutes Windows will wait idle with no activity while on the lock screen when a user locks the computer before timing out and automatically turning off the display.

    You might see if these below may be turning off the display instead.

    I'm afraid I don't know for that either.

    Hi all! My computer always turns display off when i lock it. Not immediately, of course, but within 5-10 minutes it happens.
    I tried to set up more time via Console lock display off timeout option. It doesn't work.
    Any ideas how to troubleshoot?

    Hello tsuak, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    Is this happening with the same amount of time you have set for the Turn off display after setting in Power Options? You might change the time to test and confirm.

    If not and this is a monitor, you might check its on screen menu settings to see if it may have its own turn off display setting.

    Of course it's not hit the set up time. It turns off much more earlier. I tried to set up different time and test. I got the same.
    I have a laptop and an additional monitor. Monitor always black when i push win+L. And laptop display turns off after several minutes.What else i can check?

    Since this is for a laptop, check to see if you may have any OEM power management software installed. Its settings may be overriding what you have set in Windows Power Options.
