  1. Why does Windows 10 timeout after 2 minutes


    I am currently researching further into why Windows 10 goes to sleep mode after 2 minutes. I already know how to fix this problem (we use the regedit solution) but i need to know what is causing the timeout. Is it a Power Setting corruption, software conflicts, etc?

    :)

  2. Unable to change windows 10 timeout

    Unable to change windows 10 timeout

    I have tried all options suggested like;

    • changing lock setting in Persoanlize-lock screen-screen save settings- change wait value (doesnt hold value, whatever I set comes back to 2).
    • Changed registry to enable Power Options-Sleep-Sytem unattended sleep timeout , changed it to 60 min
    • Changed registry to enable Power Options-Display-Console lock display off timeout , changed it to 60 min
    • System file checker tool didnt find any correct/missing files "http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833/en-us"
    None of the options work, after 2 minutes my computer locks. Is there any way out of this nightmare or should I switch to older windows?

    Windows 10 (sometimes) goes to sleep after only 2 minutes of inactivity

    Hello Michelle,

    Unfortunately, steps you suggested did not fix the issue. I do not use a screen saver, so setting the option you mentioned is not available to me. Also, I doubt messing with the registry should be necessary. The current (default) Windows power plan that
    I'm using has screen timeout set to 5 minutes when on battery, and 15 minutes when plugged in. Sleep timeout is set to 15, and 30 minutes, respectively. Therefore, the computer should not go to sleep before 15 or 30 minutes have elapsed.
