  1. How to turn off screen without going to sleep mode


    I have a tablet PC running Windows on Arm version 21H2 19044.1706, and it does not have an option for the power button to turn off the display without going to sleep. When I am working remotely on the machine over RDP or SSH, I want to turn off the screen because it gets hot. Earlier I had a Surface Pro with the same problem, and I just left the screen on all the time, but eventually it got swollen and burned out. So that doesn't work for me, I need to be able to turn off the screen while connected over RDP or SSH. In the settings, I can set the power button to { do nothing, sleep, shutd

    :)

  2. Computer won't go to sleep mode if I choose to turn off screen first

    Hello azorybbm,

    For me to better assist you with your concern, please confirm which build is currently installed on your device. To check, follow the steps below:

    1. Press Windows key + R, then type in winver.
    2. Click OK.

    If your computer is running on build 1803, some users had observed that when Microsoft Edge is open or running in the background; it somehow prevents the screen from turning off or entering sleep mode. Also, try unplugging any USB peripheral devices and
    check if the same behavior occurs.

    You can also try performing the steps suggested by Andre Da Costa in this
    thread.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Regards.

  3. sleep mode

    Hi disgruntledWC,

    There could be other settings on your computer that triggers your computer to go on sleep even though the sleep settings is set to never. To ensure that the sleep and display settings are properly set, I suggest that you look into the Advanced Power Settings.
    Follow these steps:

    • Open Control Panel and click Power Options.
    • On your preferred plan, click Change plan settings.
    • Click advanced power settings.
    • Expand Sleep option, and make sure to set the following:
    Sleep after : Never

    Hibernate after : Never

    5. Click Apply, then OK.

    Please check also the screen saver option.

    • Navigate to Settings > Personalization > Lock screen.
    • Click Screen saver settings.
    • Set your Screen saver to None.
    • Click Apply, then OK.

    Once done, please observe if your computer still goes to sleep mode after a few minutes of inactivity.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Regards.
