    Monitor/Screen timeout not applying after hibernation

    Hello, I have set the screen timeout to go off after 20 minutes and it works fine, but when I hibernate my PC then power on again, the screen timeout does not work and the screen stays on forever.

    I don't know if it's a Windows problem or my system's fault. I don't care if I have to set a task to run after hibernation to recover this functionality, but I haven't found any workaround yet.

    Is this normal behaviour? Is there a workaround I can check?


    I'm on Win10 1709 x64, but I've had this problem since the first version of 10, not only the last service pack.
