    Prevent screen from turning off when screen recording


    Hi! Is it possible to prevent my screen from turning off when I'm recording it through the Xbox Game Bar (Win + G)? If my screen turns off during recording, the recording is stopped and not saved, which can be really annoying. On the other hand, when I am not recording my screen I do want it to turn off after some time. I just don't want it to turn off during recording. I'm using Windows 10 Home 64-bit.

    :)

    Hi, there's this free program - which also has some command line options- which may prevent that happening.
    You could simply start that before your recording and see if it works for you.

    Otherwise: consider what's actually turning your screen off? Is this a desktop and monitor, a laptop or something else?
    No specs, and no build number (which the forum prompted you for).

    If you wanted to make this automatic and the Game Bar itself offers no related options, then I'd guess as a first thought you'd be looking at a script to be running to prevent this

    - if this is what's turning off your display- when the game bar is in use.

    E.g. invoke Don't sleep, and then close it when the Game Bar is no longer in use.
