    Screen keeps turning off despite changing it in Control Panel


    I ran some diagnostic tools (System Mechanic) and it reset my settings for Screen Saving and Password.

    I have reset them to 'Never' (see attachment), but obviously something else needs changed, because the Screen when dark and it wanted my password (which luckily I remembered).

    So, what setting am I missing?

    Thx

    Hi Leefoo.

    Have you checked Screen Saver settings?

    Start > Personalization > Lock Screen > scroll to bottom of the right hand side of screen?

    If that is not it you can search a thread "Screen turns off after 2 minutes". There was one just recently. I will see if I can find as well.

    Registry changes have an implied risk. Always have a backup.
