I have Windows 8 Pro on my Desktop, it's not connected to a domain and is stand alone.
I have a password on my account, when i am away from my computer i lock the screen to prevent unauthorised access (where the computer is there are other people).
When i come back to the computer, even after 5mins, the display is asleep and i need to press the keyboard twice to get it to wake up and then to prompt for a password, sometimes it doesn't register the first click and i have entered a wrong password because of it.
I was wondering if anyone knows how to disable or adjust the display sleep for a lock screen. I have checked the advanced power management settings and the screen is set to sleep after 60mins (i adjusted it to this), but i can't find anything for the lock / login screen.
Ive checked the metro/start screen settings and i couldn't find nothing in them either,
Thanks for any help
