Windows 8 lock screen times out after 1 minute

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have my power settings set for the display to turn off after 10 minutes. Sleep is disabled entirely.

However, after I manually lock the machine, after about 1 minute it will go blank. Why is this screen not abiding by my power settings? Has anyone come across this?

It does this for me too...I think it's assuming you don't need your screen on if you're not logged in. And I'm not sure why you would.

That said, I don't know how to change it. Just one of the many options that could've and should've been included.
