    Lock screen time-out


    Is there any way to keep the lock screen from shutting me down if I don't do anything on the keyboard for a minute or 2 minutes, or whatever it is? I followed some instructions that I found on the internet that involve adding ".bak" or ".backup" to the lock screen file in "SystemApps" but it didn't have any effect. Then I clicked on "Settings" in the Start menu and got totally lost in all that stuff.

    What do you have in your Settings->Power & Sleep?
    How are you getting to the lock screen?
    Does this happen if you manually go to the lock screen by hitting WINDOWS+L?

    screen lock


    Maybe I'm not calling it by the right name. I'm referring to having to keep putting in my pass word. I had already found the sight that you referred me to and set up when I want it to shut down depending on whether I'm running on battery etc.

    So you don't want the lock (password) screen to come up at all? Have you tried - Enable or Disable Lock Screen in Windows 10 Customization Tutorials

    There’s also a setting under screen saver (lockscreen>screensaver link under the screensaver there’s a setting which enables or disables the lockscreen when the screensaver is dismissed/cleared.
