  1. Screen not shutting off after set time while logged on


    I've been hesitant to post about this for some time as I thought it was just an isolated incident, but this has been happening for some time now (several months). I thought it would correct itself after updating Windows or restarting my PC, but it has not. I set the screen to shut off after 25 min. I then tried a lower setting (10 min) to see if that would solve the problem. It did not. What can I do now to fix this?

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    Screen not shutting off after set time while logged on

    Setting the default input method for the Windows 10 login screen

    I had the same question but with French being the default on Windows 10 rather than the one I wanted so I ended up here.

    HoD is very close. I was able to use his suggestion to find the solution for me. This solution uses your current display and input language to change the Welcome screen and possible for new user accounts if you want. So make sure you have the display and input settings while logged in that you want to apply to the login screen before doing the steps:

    1. Click the language on the Taskbar.
    2. Then click Language preferences.
    3. At the bottom under "Related settings," click "additional date, time, & regional settings" which opens the control panel
    4. Click the "Region" option
    5. Then go to the far right tab "Administrative". (HoD's step 2)
    6. In the "Welcome screen and new user accounts" click copy settings. (HoD's step 3)
    7. Tick "Welcome screen and system accounts" (and "new user accounts" if you want it to be applied to those as well). (HoD's step 4)
    8. Click Ok. (HoD's step 5)

    I was able to use HoD's suggestion to find the solution here. It's for Windows 8.1, but works on 10 so far.

    Hope it will help you, too!
