Windows 10: when to turn off monitor - keeps resetting?

    when to turn off monitor - keeps resetting?


    I changed it to never turn off my display. Yet it keeps reverting back to 15 mins.

    Any ideas what is causing this?

    Would you care to do it the old-fashioned way and see if the setting would stick this time ?

    Right click at Start > Control Panel > top right, click View by: select either large or small > Power Options > left side, click When to turn off the display > set it to Never > click Save changes.

    did that (via windows button-X). it's weird because it only reverts it maybe 1-2x a day. I cannot figure it out

    Does that means the method via Control Panel does not make any difference ?

    Maybe you have corrupt files.
    Run a system file check. It will try to do repair if any corrupt files are found.

    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.
    When finished, it will give you a report.
