    Thanks.
    Just double click Attribute on the right side, change it to 2 and hit ok. exit. Then follow the rest of the directions that was posted in this thread numerous times. no need to create anything new. If you dont see this then you are not in the right place in the registry. start over and carefully navigate through until you see what is in my screen capture.

    Tried but didn't work

    Here is the solution that worked out for me:

    1. Click on the windows icon
    2. Type regedit
    3. Right-click on regedit icon, click Run as administrator
    4. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20\7bc4a2f9-d8fc-4469-b07b-33eb785aaca0
    5. Double click on Attributes
    6. Enter number 2.
    7. Go to Advanced power settings (click on Windows button, write power options, click on Power Options, in the selected plan click on the Change plan settings, click on the Change advanced power settings).
    8. Click on the Change settings that are currently unavailable
    9. Click Sleep, then System unattended sleep timeout, then change these settings from 2 Minutes to 20 for example.
    That's it!
    I tried this to the letter but didn't work for me. Still fades out after less than two minutes. I have the Asus K55 laptop.

    Regedit worked for me

    Thank you!
    Not sure where or how long ago this fix originated; but it was the ticket, finally, for me. Since the last Windows 10 update--I think to 1709--my laptop would go to sleep, either after 2 minutes or sometimes after 10, seemingly randomly; I never got to see my screensaver photos because the screen would black out, even with a slideshow running.

    I tried all the simpler suggestions, because I am a total computer klutz (age 75) and had always regarded editing the register as akin to touching the third rail on the subway track. But nothing at all worked, so finally I went into the recipe and followed each step. When I got to the last one, I did back up that portion of the registry, before I made the simple change from "1" to "2". Then I followed the steps to get to a chance to change the Sleep time, and sure enough, it was set to 2 minutes. I changed it to 45 or some such, and all seems to be working as it should, the next morning.

    If I can do this, anyone can. Thanks!!
