Windows 10: Screen Saver Settings - Change in Windows 10
You're most welcome.
Just so you'll know. The second set of reg files do work, but unlike the previous set, they do not place a check mark in the box. Thanks for two elegant solutions to my problem. Byee. paj692
Yep, that's how it should work. The 1st set will only enable/disable the option to check/uncheck, and the 2nd set actually turns on/off to check/uncheck.
I only bought this new machine a few days ago, had it all set up. Then I get up this morning to find I can't use my new computer for about 3/4 an hour while it updates. And now the screensaver is broken. I tried going through the steps above, but it just wont turn the display off now!
EDIT seems it's VLC that's blocking the screen from turning off, but I still can't get the screensaver to work and I'd like to be able to use VLC for listening to music without burning a hole in my new monitor
Double check through VLC settings to make sure that the Disable Screensaver box is unchecked.
Can't seem to find that setting anywhere?
Anyway, cheers for the feedback I thought it might be something like that. I'll keep an eye on it, at the moment I have a potentially more serious problem to deal with (see my next post)
I found this image for VLC that I hope will help. I'm not sure if it's the same in the current version or not.

I'm asking out of curiosity more then anything, since Windows Update has a heading saying "Some settings are managed by your system administrator". I'm just curious if someone's already found a way around that, lol, or if it's somehow hardcoded in...
