  1. Lock screen going to sleep after only 1 minute


    Hello, I was wondering how to change this. I want it to wait longer to put my computer to sleep then just one minute during my lock screen. I have tried going through advanced power options -> Display -> Console Lock Display Off Timeout, But that last directory does not appear for me. The only option I have under Display is 'Turn display off after', and it just seems to reflect the logged in setting. I have also Searched everywhere in screen saver settings and I can not find anything that pertains to the lock screen.

    :)

    PC hibernates / goes into sleep mode upon logout / screen lock

    I am using my work computer. It's a laptop with a power connection (not running on battery.) The laptop is hocked up to two monitors (a total of three monitors, counting the laptop's own screen - I usually keep my laptop closed, however.)
    Since I am at work I always lock the screen when I leave my computer. (I use the windows+L shortcut to lock the screen.) This all works fine.

    However, after about a minute the computer goes into sleep mode / hibernation. At least I think it does, because the two monitors goes black - and it takes a few seconds to "wake up the system" (the monitors doesn't come back to life immediately when I press a key on the keyboard / move the mouse, as they would if a screen saver was active.)
    This is very annoying if I step away from my computer for only a short while (like going to the bathroom.)

    Here's what I want:
    With power (not running on battery):
    When I lock the screen, I want the screen to stay on for 1 minute, then go to screen saver for 15 minutes, then go to hibernation/sleep mode.

    Without power (running on battery):
    When I lock the screen, I want the screen to stay on for 1 minute, then go to screen saver for 5 minutes, then go to hibernation/sleep mode.

    My best bet is that this is some sort of power saving scheme thingie, but I can't seem to figure out how to configure it to do what I want. Can someone please help me with a step-by-step guide to configure my system the way I want? Thank you.
     
  3. Screens Sleeping after 5 minutes?

    Hello all. I am stuck. We have a user at my place of work who we upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. After the upgrade she noticed that now if she is inactive for 5 minutes her screens will go to sleep. The problem with this is that when the screens sleep, the computer is locked. This forces her to log back in every time. Not MAJOR but rather annoying to say the least.

    We have a group policy that says after 15 minutes of activity the screens should go to sleep. For everyone else including myself, this works. Most others as well as myself are also running Windows 10. We have checked to make sure she is getting the group policies and she most definitely is.

    Other things I have tried:

    Restoring defaults to the power options
    Checked the timeout settings in the registry, they were set at 900 seconds. (15 minutes)

    Not sure what else to try. I am sure I am missing a couple of things I have tried.

  4. Lock screen going to sleep after only 1 minute

    Laptop going to sleep/ screen locking after short period

    Hi

    Hopefully someone can help, I'm about to lose my mind with this.

    My laptop screen sleeps or locks after just a minute or 2.

    I have been into the Control Panel and changed all the settings regarding power options and sleeping so that they are all set to 30 minutes. However this still hasn't solved the issue.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    Jordan
