    Hi, I have the same issue as https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/windows-11-lock-screen-after-1-minute/4d8897f6-e678-4fe1-98ae-bd696fa4a3b5 - and there was no solution on that post that worked for the user posting the issue. My Windows 11 laptop keeps locking after 1 minute. Sometimes, if I reboot, it stops locking after 1 minute and stops doing it for about an hours, and then it starts locking after 1 minute again.I have checked ALL settings, our company IT Helpdesk has checked ALL settings and there are NO settings that would trigger this - unless there is something h

  2. Windows 11 locks my screen after 1 minute

    On my new Windows 11 laptop, the screen locks after 1 minute, no matter what settings I change. Things I've tried:

    • Power plan setting: Turn off display after 4 minutes (both battery and plugged in)
    • Advanced power plan setting: Sleep / Sleep after 4 minutes (battery/plugged in)
    • Advanced power plan setting: System unattended sleep timeout after 4 minutes (battery/plugged in)
    • Advanced power plan setting: Display / Turn off display after 4 minutes (battery/plugged in)
    • Advanced power plan setting: Display / Console lock display off timeout after 4 minutes (battery/plugged in)
    • System > Power & Battery setting: Screen and Sleep / Turn off my screen after 4 minutes (battery/plugged in) (also recommended here)
    • Set the screensaver to "none"
    At this point I'm stumped. Anything else that might be causing this?

  3. Windows 11 lock screen after 1 minute

    Hello guys,

    A few weeks ago my Windows 11, after 1 min of inactivity it reserves the screen.

    I've gone through many configurations, but have not had success in any, being:

    • Change screen saver settings.
    • Change screen idle time.
    • Disable and enable the system video card.
    • Start Windows without 3rd party apps.
    • Fetch OS update.
    • Change settings in Registry Editor, so we have more options in "Power Options".
    My notebook is a Samsung Galaxy Book 3, and it's brand new.

    Have you ever seen anything like it? It is very bad because any screen for reading, screen stopped on screen is locked.

    I saw an earlier thread about this but there was no final solution and all the fixes in it did not resolve my problem..

    Touchpad not scrolling after setting ScrollControl_Mode to 1

    Hi Silver Phung,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community

    The issue you're facing with your laptop's touchpad not scrolling after setting ScrollControl_Mode to 1 seems to be a complex one, but I can suggest a few steps that might help in resolving it. Let's break it down:

    Immediate Steps to Try

    1. Revert the Setting Change:
      • Since the problem started after changing the ScrollControl_Mode to 1, the first step would be to revert it back to its original setting (probably 0). You mentioned trying this without success, but ensure that the change is correctly applied and saved.
    2. Update or Reinstall Touchpad Drivers:
      • You’ve already checked for driver updates, but it might be helpful to completely uninstall and then reinstall the touchpad driver. Sometimes, simply updating doesn't fix issues that a fresh install might resolve.
      • Go to Device Manager, find the touchpad (possibly under "Mice and other pointing devices"), right-click, and select "Uninstall device." Then, restart your laptop and Windows should automatically reinstall the driver.
    3. Check for Windows Updates:
      • Occasionally, such issues are resolved through Windows updates. Ensure your system is fully updated.
    Dealing with ELAN Touchpad Issues

    • ELAN Tab Missing:
      • If the ELAN tab in your mouse settings is not showing up, it suggests a deeper issue with the touchpad driver or configuration.
      • Try downloading the touchpad driver specifically for your model from the Lenovo support website. Ensure it matches your exact laptop model and Windows 11 version.
    • ETD Properties App:
      • The error message from the ETD Properties app indicates a disconnect or incompatibility with the ELAN driver. This again points towards a need for a driver reinstallation or update.
      • Make sure you’re downloading the right version of the app compatible with your Windows 11 version.
    Thank you for your patience and understanding! If you have any questions, feel free to leave us a message.

    Sincerely
