Whenever you leave your Windows laptop idle for more than a minute, it shuts down and shuts down. It can be annoying, especially if you want Cortana to be turned on for some reason or want to stare at the screen a little more.

This is a common problem, but luckily there is a way to adjust the timeout settings for your laptop's lock screen and keep it on for as long as you want. Let's see how.



Solution: Using the settings app

Step 1: Click on Home on the desktop and select the file settings option (Gear icon) located above the file energia option in the context menu.

Step 2: A settings window, click System option.

Step 3: Now on the left side of the file System window, scroll down and click Energy and sleep. On the right side of the panel, under the screen section, select the time from the drop-down menu (set it according to your needs) in With battery And under When it's plugged in, turn it off afterwards. This will customize the screen timeout.


Here we configure the file With battery to Five minutes e When it's plugged in, turn it off afterwards to 20 minutes.


4 phase: Now go to Accommodation section. Under this select your preferred time from the drop down menu below With battery power, the PC shuts down later.

Here, we have set it up 25 minutes.

Bottom Once connected, the PC shuts down later section, set it to Mai.

That is! You are done customizing the lock screen timeout on your Windows 10 PC.
