    Windows 10 64 Bit Monitor display turns off after 2 minutes!


    I have three PC's all running the same OS setup but one no matter what I try after 2 minutes the display goes blank, move the mouse and the desktop is there! I found in link but for Windows 7 with the term called "System unattended sleep timeout" added to Advanced Power Settings" but cant find anything like this in Windows 10. And I do not know even if this feature is part of Windows 10 it could be something totally different.So does anyone out there have any ideas as to what I can try please? Zane771

    Control Panel, Power Options.
    Click on Change plan settings for the currently active plan.
    Change Turn off display to whatever value you want. I have mine set to never since I use a screen saver and want it to kick in and run when I'm not using the computer. I turn it off manually if I'm not going to use it for awhile.

    Shot in the dark, but do you accidentally have a "blank" screensaver set? Click image for larger version.
