  1. Windows 10 screen lock / goes to sleep every time when I physically leave my computer stand


    My Windows is getting off means that the screen is locked and turns to sleep mod every time when I leave my computer stand, which requires me to turn it on and put the password again and again.All the basic settings under power & sleep are set to more than 30 minutes.Please don't share with me one of these 2 cases, I've tried them and they didn't work:https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/windows-10-pc-goes-to-lock-screen-after-2-minutes/d43aee3e-94b2-4343-803e-02a7ede7cfd2https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/laptop-goes-to-sleep-after-one-minute-with-win

    PC hibernates / goes into sleep mode upon logout / screen lock

    I am using my work computer. It's a laptop with a power connection (not running on battery.) The laptop is hocked up to two monitors (a total of three monitors, counting the laptop's own screen - I usually keep my laptop closed, however.)
    Since I am at work I always lock the screen when I leave my computer. (I use the windows+L shortcut to lock the screen.) This all works fine.

    However, after about a minute the computer goes into sleep mode / hibernation. At least I think it does, because the two monitors goes black - and it takes a few seconds to "wake up the system" (the monitors doesn't come back to life immediately when I press a key on the keyboard / move the mouse, as they would if a screen saver was active.)
    This is very annoying if I step away from my computer for only a short while (like going to the bathroom.)

    Here's what I want:
    With power (not running on battery):
    When I lock the screen, I want the screen to stay on for 1 minute, then go to screen saver for 15 minutes, then go to hibernation/sleep mode.

    Without power (running on battery):
    When I lock the screen, I want the screen to stay on for 1 minute, then go to screen saver for 5 minutes, then go to hibernation/sleep mode.

    My best bet is that this is some sort of power saving scheme thingie, but I can't seem to figure out how to configure it to do what I want. Can someone please help me with a step-by-step guide to configure my system the way I want? Thank you.

  4. Windows 10 screen lock / goes to sleep every time when I physically leave my computer stand

    Windows Sleep/Stand By Issues

    Hi Joythar K, I did the steps you provided with no help. And no issues where found in the power troubleshooter. When my pc goes into stand by/sleep
    mode and I go to wake it up the screen stays black. I have to hold the power button down to turn off my computer and turn it back on to get it to go back to my desktop. The issue only happens when my computer goes to stand by/sleep mode. This issue started
    after the last windows 10 update. -Shawn
