    Lock Screen Slideshow Time Out


    Hello, I used to use a reg file for Windows 8.1 to customize the time until the screen turns off during the Lock Screen Time Out. I want to know if that command still applies for Windows 10.

    The reg file command is:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Lock Screen]
    "SlideshowDuration"=dword:000493e0
    (where the screen turns off after 5 minutes).

    I have the formula to figure out what you need to calculate to insert after "dword" for the amount of time until the screen times out (goes black). Ask me for the formula... as long as the above works.

    Thanks

    :)

    Turn off display and sleep mode problem

    Do you have the lock screen set to slideshow? If so, you should see a note saying that the display time out and sleep will not function as long as the lock screen is set to slideshow.

    After changing the lock screen from slideshow to picture then my display would turn off.

  3. Screen off after 1 minute regardless of personalisation settings after Win10 upgrade.

    Generally, the Lock Screen Slideshow, Screensaver, and the Power Settings all combine to figure out when your system will time out.

    Never mind. I went into the Registry and checked it out.

    Yes, the same exact rules apply here like in Windows 8.1
