Tip & How-To about Miscellaneous
Even if you have set the following settings to:
"Never turn off the Display" & "Never put the Computer to Sleep", you can still have Windows 10 turn off the display after 1 minute at "Lock Screen".
If you don't want the Monitor to turn off, do the following:
1) Click with the Mouse on the "Search Windows Icon" in the lower left corner of the monitor, and in the "Search Windows" space type: "Screen Saver". When the Menu appears, Click with the Mouse on "Turn Screen Saver on or off". Then, on the Screen Saver Tab under "Screen Saver", set it to "None" instead of "Blank".
Note: If the setting is set to "Blank", Windows 10 will assume that you want to 'Blank' (i.e. Windows discriminate between "Turn Off" & "Blanking the Monitor") the Monitor after a specified time period - even though you have set the other settings mentioned in the beginning of this writing to "Never turn off the Display" & "Never put the Computer to Sleep".
That's it, I hope it will help someone else as I found that many have this issue with Windows 10 & Windows 8, 8.1.
