Hi,

You may try the following steps and check if it helps:

  1. Right click on the Desktop and select Personalization.

  2. Select the Lock screen Tab.

  3. Now select the option Screen Timeout settings.

  4. Now under the Screen click on the tab and select the time more according to your preference.

  5. Also you can change the Sleep time settings.

If that doesn't work, it may be using the (thoroughly hidden) secret "System Unattended Sleep timeout" value.

1.Open the Registry Editor by searching for Regedit in the start menu or search bar
2.Navigate to the following path with the bar on the side: HKEYLOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\7516b95f-f776-4464-8c53-06167f40cc99\8EC4B3A5-6868-48c2-BE75-4F3044BE88A7”
3.Double left-click the Attributes value to open the Properties window in the right hand-pane
4.Change the value in the Value data box from 1 to 2, then click OK
5.Go to Power Options in the Control Panel and click change plan settings
6.Click on Change Advanced Power Options
7.Expand the Display item and choose Console lock display off timeout

Note: Make sure that you back up the registry before you modify it.

2nd answer worked for me! Thank you!!
(secret "System Unattended Sleep timeout" value.)
Console lock display off timeout values were 1 minute.

Note 1: you have spelling errors in the registry key:
1. HKEYLOCAL should be HKEY_LOCAL
2. remove " at end
Fixed version: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\7516b95f-f776-4464-8c53-06167f40cc99\8EC4B3A5-6868-48c2-BE75-4F3044BE88A7

(on Windows 10 Home, version 21H1)

Note 2: registry numeric keys can change. If this key is not found, search for "Console lock display off timeout" in Reg Edit.

Besides checking the screen saver settings, check the power plan settings. Control Power->Power Options. Make sure the monitor time out and sleep time are set beyond a minute or never. Check the advanced settings, if your system is a laptop on battery, make sure the battery is charged. In low power state the system can either shutdown or sleep.

If the system is sleeping, you can disable the request for password in Group Policy. run gpedit.msc. Computer Configuration->System->Power Management->Sleep Settings: disable - Require a password when a computer wakes (on battery)
