    Windows 10 - Screen times out even when set to "Never".

    I just installed the official release of Windows 10 on five PCs.

    On two of the five PCs, even though I have both the Screen Saver and Screen Timeout set to "Never", Windows 10 blanks the monitor after 1 minute of inactivity.

    I've checked every setting I can think of and even the Nvidia Control Panel, but nothing seems to prevent the timeout event.

    Sorry everybody, I found the problem.

    I'm embarrassed to report that due to confusion between host and remote PC settings, I was only focused on the remote PC settings which were both set to "Never" for timeout and screen saver.

    The host PC was set to "Never" for timeout but to "Blank" for screen saver. I never realized that the host PC settings override the remote PC settings.

    Sorry for the false alarm.
