  1. PC stuck at lock screen when opening the Lid duing power saver mode


    I updated windows from 1803 to 1903 and since then the laptop hangs on the lock screen after opening the lid.This happens only when Low Power mode is turned on (or) the battery is low. This has happened for the fourth time now, only after updating. I assume this issue is caused because they changed the way Sleep behaves (after the update).


    In the latest scenario, I turned on the laptop, it was low on power so I closed the lid, connected the charger. Later when I needed the laptop (about 20 to 40min. later) -- I unplugged the laptop first then after a few minutes, opened its lid. It hung on the lock screen. I restart by long pressing the power button on the laptop.


    This problem occurs only when low power mode is on / battery is low on power (or has drained when sleeping?) and

    the laptop was plugged in during sleep and was left (undisturbed) for >=20 min.


    Please help me solve this issue with my system.


    Thank you.

  2. Screen Saver and Sceen lock

    Hi,

    Regarding your concern, we suggest setting up power options first before setting the screen saver. You may perform these steps:

    • In the search box on the task bar, type Power Options,
      and then select Power Options.
    • Click Change Plan Settings.
    • Change the settings to Never.
    • Select Save changes.
    • Set your screen saver.

    Do let us know should you need further assistance.

    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.
