    Does having it set with this prevent your display from turning off automatically?
    NO. Displays still goes black after several minutes as i said before.

    Just verifying.

    I must admit that I'm not sure why your display is still automatically turning off despite being set not to.

    This behavior is strange for me too.

    Hello, sorry for bumping this rather old thread, but I just wanted to give my "I have also this problem" and give a cent or two:

    As tsuak posted in the image in #16, the "Lock Screen Display Off Timeout" option is not present in Power Options window, so unable to set it via option 1.


    If I go with option two, the command line option, I start with getting list of schemes with
    powercfg /list
    Copying the GUID and querying the scheme with
    powercfg /query <Scheme GUID>
    and scrolling down to Display, the "Lock Screen Display Off Timeout" is not present here either.

    If I run your command anyway:
    powercfg /SETACVALUEINDEX SCHEME_CURRENT SUB_VIDEO VIDEOCONLOCK 3600
    and then query the scheme afterwards, the option still don't appear.

    So I guess Windows Updates has made this void - at least for my Windows 10 Pro N 64bit (Version 1803, Build 17134.285)

    Hello @SvendK, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The Console lock display off timeout setting in Power Options is not available by default until added using an option in the tutorial below.

    Yeay, thanks!



    A bit funny, the value I set yesterday via CLI was actually saved, even though I couldn't see it in the query. Must have been because the feature itself was disabled (not just hidden), as it was still turning off the displays after one minute (AC).

    I just tried locking and the displays stays turned on after 2 minutes. GREAT! Thanks!
