after 2 minutes of inactivity display goes blank requiring "enter" to get lock screen . I must always move my mouse to stay "active." Can't seem to find a solution online that works.
The setting to fix this is "System unattended sleep timeout" in advanced power settings. (Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings > change advanced power settings).
However this setting is hidden because Microsoft wants waste our time and make our lives miserable.
To un-hide it, you need to change a registry attribute value data from 1 to 2 at the following registry path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > Power > PowerSettings > 238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20 > 7bc4a2f9-d8fc-4469-b07b-33eb785aaca0
windows key + R
type regedit and hit enter
click Yes if asked
on registry editor - ctrl+F
search for 7bc4a2f9-d8fc-4469-b07b-33eb785aaca0
wait, can take a while to find
when found, double click attributes on the right pane
change value data to 2
hit ok, close registry editor.
Right click the start button > power options > Additional power settings > Change Plan Settings > change advanced power settings
expand System unattended sleep timeout
change both values to zero for never or set your preferred value.
