    windows 10

    When I lock my windows screen it tries to go in sleep mode.


    I have a custom built PC (built last year) and recently when I lock my windows screen, after a few seconds it tries to go in sleep mode then it wakes itself up on its own then few seconds later it tries again.

    1. I lock my screen
    2. after i lock it, it brings me to my lock screen ....it shows me the time and the temperature (its how i configured my lock screen via windows settings)
    3. after about 8-10 seconds my dual monitors go pitch black (the power buttons remain blue and don't go off).
    4. on its own, its as if its waking itself up, the monitors come back to my lock screen (also the monitor displays HDMI as if the monitor shut down and showing you the input its currently on).
    5. repeat steps 2-4 (if I leave my computer locked it just repeats this cycle on its own)

    I dont know if its related or not, but when ever this happens, in my event viewer it shows "event 10016" The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID.

    I have all my power settings to tell the PC not to sleep, I have all power savings options related to monitor and PC off. I have no screen saver. When I am logged in windows, if I let the PC just sit there, I don't have this issue. Its only when I lock my computer.
