How to Change Lock Screen Display Off Timeout Period in Windows 8 and 8.1
This tutorial will help show you how to change the amount of minutes Windows 8 will wait idle with no activity when the computer is already locked before timing out and automatically turning off the display.
- This will only work with the lock screen when a user locks the computer.
- This will not work with the lock screen at startup or after a user signs out.
1. If the administrator has not already, the Console lock display off timeout option needs to be added to Advanced Power Settings.
2. Open your Advanced Power Settings, expand Display and Console lock display off timeout. (see screenshots below)
3. Set how many minutes you want, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshots below)
NOTE: The default time is 1 minute. Setting this to 0 (zero) minutes will set the display to never turn off from the lock screen.
