WINDOWS 10 - MONITOR TURNS "BLANK" (SLEEPS) AFTER 1 MINUTE AT LOCK SCREEN

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.

what does "on battery" &


It's an auto lock setting wherein you can set the time when the display goes on sleep. If for example, it runs on battery and you want the display to go off after 5 minutes so you can save battery, you can set it to that. If it's plugged in charger and you don't want the display to go off, you can set it to never so it doesn't lock the phone and acts as a real alarm clock.
