Try a right click on your screen then click on Display settings and look for Power and Sleep.

First, what type of PC do you have, is it Apple, Microsoft etc? What operating system is on it? For Windows 10 use Settings>Lock Screen>Time Out Settings. See example image below.

screen going 'blank' too soon

Message 4 of 4

If my p.c. is idle for more than a couple minutes, the screen goes blank until I touch a key again. What setting do I use to keep it from doing this ? I'd like the screen to stay 'on' for more than a few minutes.
