Windows 10: Screen timeout being overridden?
Screen timeout being overridden?
I have set my screen to turn off at 2 minutes while plugged in and also on battery. I've tried other times, but nothing changed. After the alotted time, it goes blank, but immediately comes back on. I've tried changing the times, tried it unplugged, tried to use sleep mode at the same threshold, but nothing works. I thought it might be my external monitor, but even with that unplugged nothing works. Powercfg -requests gives me "None" under every category. Powercfg -energy gives me a warning about USB selective suspend, but even with my external hard drive disconnected I get the same results. I bought this laptop with Windows 8. It worked as desired through upgrading to 8.1, but with 10 it does not. There are no display driver updates from ASUS. Since it's not sleep mode that's the problem (I THINK), there are no reports in event viewer, and last wake is when I opened the lid.
I want the screen off, but I'm not asking for it to go to sleep (unless I can keep my external HD awake, which TBH I don't know is possible). I don't mind closing the lid occasionally, but I run Plex (with the external HD) before going to sleep and I'd like to have my screen turn off without Plex losing connection to my server. I believe I've given all the relevant info, and when I registerred I entered some info about my laptop (but I don't know how easy it is to access). Thanks for any help.
I'm using Windows 10 and I changed all of my When Computer Sleeps settings and my screen still goes black after about 30 seconds of inactivity. Not really sure why this happens because I changed all of the settings for the screen shutting off to...
Tuning an HP All-In-One pc with wired keyboard. In Power Settings I can't see any choice of a key to resurrect the display after a timeout. I'd like to set it to spacebar. Or maybe Enter.
Anyone know what the default key should be?
I have the "Turn off display after" set to 20 minutes:
...but they aren't timing out. Does anyone know what might be keeping this from working? Another setting? Some program is keeping it from timing out?
- Unattended Sleep Timeout key (introduced with Vista). Since the default timeout is 120 seconds, I changed that to prevent the PC from returning to Standby when it's running unattended overnight AV & MBAM scans.
Is this option still available...
I notice that the tablet/phone lock screen is still appearing for Desktop/Laptop installs and wonder why.
Previously when I enable turning off the lock screen in gpedit.msc it turns off the lock screen timeout too. But on the latest build I...
