  1. lockscreen timeout problem.


    So the problem started when I wanted to change lockscreen from windows spotlight to pictures. I accidentally enabled lock the screen. So now windows locks after around 30 seconds and goes to screen saver. I changed console lock display off timeout to 10 minutes but It still locks after 30 seconds. I don't know if this is the right forum but I'd appreciate your help.

    Domain Win10 device timeout to lockscreen despite settings

    I'm having an issue finding what is enforcing timeout-to-lockscreen on a domain Win10 version 1909. Here is what I have done so far:

    - Per our GPO administrators, no policy is currently active on the device that would cause the timeout

    - In Power Options>Edit Plan Settings>Advanced Settings, performed the associated registry tweaks to show Display>Console lock display off timeout and Sleep>System unattended sleep timeout. I set both settings to 99999 minutes.

    - In Power Options>Edit Plan Settings>Advanced Settings, Hard Disk>Turn off hard disk after is set to 99999 minutes, Sleep>Sleep after and >Hibernate after are both set to Never, and Display>Turn off display after is set to Never

    - No screensaver is enabled

    What settings could be overruling all of these to force the device to lockscreen after 15 or so minutes?

    Thanks

    Lumia 950 shipping with Lockscreen Timeout bug

    Hi SolderFace,

    Don't think its a Bug but on purpose to prevent screen burn since the subject device has an AMOLED display.

    BTW, on the 2 Lumias (earlier models) that I have, the Maps application always remain ON irrespective of Lockscreen Timeout setting.
