The screen on your laptop goes black after every few seconds.
It resumes after a mouse-click or after a key-press.
Click on Start --> In search bar, type power options and press Enter.
"Select a power plan" window will be opened.
Click on "Change plan settings" next to "Balanced (recommended)".
In "Turn off the display", select "Never" from the drop-down menu under both the options "On battery" and "Plugged in".
Now click on "Save changes" button.
