Display Turn Off Cannot be Adjusted RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running Windows 8.1 on a Surface Pro 3, and no matter how I configure the Power Settings or Display Options, the display is automatically turning off after 5 minutes without input.

    I've used the options through the Charms Bar (Settings>Change PC Settings>Power & Sleep) to Change both Battery and Plugged In sleep times to "Never", and the desktop settings (Power Options>Edit Plan Settings>Advanced>Display) to set "Turn Off Display After" to "Never".

    I even tried turning On the Screen Saver and setting the time to 120 minutes, in case the Blank Screen Saver was kicking in despite being disabled.

    Despite all of the above, the display continues to turn off after 5 idle minutes (e.g. when I watch a YouTube video for over 5 minutes without interacting).
