    Screen keeps turning off despite changing it in Control Panel


    I ran some diagnostic tools (System Mechanic) and it reset my settings for Screen Saving and Password.

    I have reset them to 'Never' (see attachment), but obviously something else needs changed, because the Screen when dark and it wanted my password (which luckily I remembered).

    So, what setting am I missing?

    Thx

  2. How can i keep my screen display on longer

    In the Cortana search box, type screen saver. Check screen saver settings to see if the "Wait" time should be changed.

    Search for power options. In Control Panel> Power options, check settings to see if the screen is being turned off or put to sleep sooner that you want. Change the setting.

  3. How to unblock Samsung publisher on Windows 10?

    1) no, it was stored on the LAN and worked until I rebuilt win 10

    2) when double clicking on the App

    3) No

    4) Not browser related

    Cant run any app with unsigned or revoked certificate, UAC forbids it and tells me to contact the administrator (despite UAC being off in control panel)

    Getting very fed up of having to fight MS policies on 10 pro that cripple it for business use.

    Also looking for a way to turn defender off permanently as it turns itself on after about 15 mins, if my A/V is disabled (cant test with it enabled)

    Cant turn off telemetry (unacceptable to some of our customers.. No data must leave the UK)

    Cant control when updates download, (Already caused problems with payroll for another customer)

    UAC refuses to turn off despite being set in control panel so unattended remote access is impossible,

    Hi Leefoo.

    Have you checked Screen Saver settings?

    Start > Personalization > Lock Screen > scroll to bottom of the right hand side of screen?

    If that is not it you can search a thread "Screen turns off after 2 minutes". There was one just recently. I will see if I can find as well.

    Registry changes have an implied risk. Always have a backup.
