Preferred Solution: my lumia 640 auto lock screen with out my will every time after some sec

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So, I have searched the internet for what I am trying to find but the only thing that comes up is how to add a timer that will turn the display off after a certain time WHILE the lock-screen is on. That's not what I am asking.

What I am asking is if there is a way to auto-lock the computer after a certain amount of time. I know you can activate a screensaver after a certain amount of time, and then once touched again it will show up at the lockscreen. That's not what I want. I have the lock-screen setup to play a slideshow of pictures that I want to play when not in use. (This is a 58" touchscreen display that is used to interact with a powerpoint presentation in a public area). If I leave the desktop screensaver option on, it'll turn off the lockscreen slides. Why does that matter if the slideshow is running you may be asking? Well, I have a script on the desktop of this computer that will lock the computer with a single click. This is because when someone is done doing a presentation, I want them to be able to lock the screen immediately so that when they walk away someone can't just walk by and start messing with a wide-open computer.

So, idk if this is possible or if someone has a better solution but i'd appreciate any input.

I have two Lumia's: 925 and 625.
Since we try to have as less radiation as possible (if possible at all, but I don't want to go into that discussion) around the house we switch our phones to airplane mode as much as possible. Off course also at nights.
Now, I discovered with a special measuring device, which is able to measure all kinds off radiation) that these lumia's frequently send a signal even when it is on airplane mode (with Wifi, NFC, BT off). The strangest thing is even that this is NOT occurring when the phone is normally on, but only when the lock-screen is active. (with or without Glance where applicable)
I notice a peek in send-signal every 5 seconds. I tried playing around with several settings but the devices keep doing this..
Is anybody familiar with this?

Answer:Screen won't auto-lock

I was having issues getting my Windows 10 PC to actually require a password each time it woke up from sleep. The way I solved my issue was to enable the group policy for Interactive logon: Machine inactivity limit. If you set a value here the computer will lock itself after the set amount of time and require a password on waking up.

This can be found in the Local Group Policy Editor under Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/Security Options/Interactive logon: Machine inactivity limit.

I'm not entirely sure this is exactly what you're looking for, but I think it might help.

At the "Looking for you..." stage of unlocking my Lumia 950XL, since today I'm getting a little electronic sound just after pressing the side unlock button. I press the unlock/power button to wake up the phone...it goes to lock screen and starts the Iris scanner and "Looking for you..." and makes this weird 3 second or so tinny electronic sound. Most annoying, and I don't know where it came from or how to turn it off. Anyone else have this issue?

So just like most other of you fine people,I downloaded the lock screen app that came out today,especially since they said it wouldn't be coming to 512mb phones. But when I downloaded it,it basically slowed the phone down by a lot,and turning it on to see the new pretty lock screen took ages. So I uninstalled it,and went back to the setup I had before with Papercut Free,and whenever I turned the phone on it'd have to resume to the lock screen,so I just put a single photo,and I'm still resuming to the lock screen. When I press the button,the bar on top shows (the one with the 4G and battery) there is a black screen for a second,then resuming....Any help?

Started doing it on Friday after I'd made a phonecall over bluetooth carphone kit. (coincidence I think?)
The picture that flashes up is what you would see if you pressed the side pwr button to lock it but it continuously flashes on and off as if the button is being pressed.
So far I have done soft reset, hard reset, had it apart and unplugged battery/checked all connections/buttons etc.
The fault still happens even with the side buttons disconnected.
I've also tried Windows Repair Tool 1.2.4 to install older firmware which I've downloaded though it just turns the phone off after a minute or so then the pc says phone lost and installation failed. Screen reboots and just shows the word Nokia until I hold the pwr button to make it turn off and back on again which it will do and start as normal returning to the standard screen flashing on and off with lockscreen picture.
It's on latest update of Denim, never been dropped and is as new. I can still answer a call and speak as normal despite continuous flashing fault.
Any ideas?

I had another 925 and I brought it to the warranty center and got it replaced. Then with my new phone it happened a week and half ago.

Hey All,

I've lurked forever, and have found the solutions on these forums (and the prior sevenforums) exceedingly helpful, but now I'm stuck and can't find a solution.

The scenario:

Years ago I bought a Asus Transformer Pad T100. It was great. I enabled auto-signin and everything has been fine.
When I put the tablet to sleep, then wake it up, the lock screen is displayed, but once I swipe it up it auto-signs in to windows. This is my preferred behavior as it makes the lock screen act like a non-pin lock screen on a phone, and avoids mispresses of the power button causing applications to launch.

Today, I got an Asus Transformer 300 Chi. It has been pretty great so far, except for one issue that is driving me crazy: I can't repeat the above behavior.

Basically, either I don't get a lock screen at all, or I get one requiring a password. To clarify, I've confirmed that the user accounts screens on both tablet have Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer. unchecked. I do not require a password on sign-in of windows, which is great. But when I hit the power button, it just goes immediately to Windows' desktop.

On the T100, it is not set to require a password under screensaver settings, nor the Modern PC Settings' Account sections. Power settings does require a password on wakeup. And this is where things differ.

On the 300 Chi, I cannot have both the Modern PC Settings' account section to not require a password under Password Policy and power settin... Read more

Welcome to Windows Central.
For the "lock screen", could it be that what you're seeing is the Glance Screen with your custom background image?
Nonetheless, if you're having troubles with your phone (the charging issue) just two days after purchase, you could bring it back to the store where you bought it together with the official receipt and have it replaced.

Answer:Why isn't my Bing lock screen updating (Lumia 730)?

You can try this: change lock screen from Bing to something else, it will update manually and then leave it alone for few days. After that Bing should update on daily basis. If that doesn't work you can install some 3rd party app,Personally I use Paperclip free. It has cool feature which allows you to set the time of daily wallpaper update of lock screen and Bing regions..Canada,Germany,Japan, etc.

Turning OFF Narrator.

Click Settings>Ease of Access>Which takes you to Narrator or Magnifier or High Contrast.

Click Narrator OFF and Also Click Start Narrator Automatically OFF (With the ON/OFF Sliders)

Turning Magnifier OFF.

Settings>Ease of use>Which takes you to Narrator or Magnifier or High Contrast.

Now this time you do it just a little bit different.

Click on Magnifier but this time Turn OFF Start Magnifier Automatically (First!)

Then go back up and Turn OFF Magnifier (Both of which are done with the ON/OFF Sliders)

At which point you will see the little Banner with the Magnifying Glass and all its magnification settings, on the Top Right Corner of which is an 'X' so Click the 'X' and Close it down.

Having done that, come out of that Menu altogether by clicking outside of that Menu.

In the Event that you can still see the Magnifying Glass on the Screen, then Click directly on it and it will disappear! until such time as you decide that you may want to use it at some future time.

Try a Soft Reset. Hold the Volume Down + Power buttons until the phone vibrates and reboots (about 10 seconds). Soft Reset is a great go-to to solve many types of glitch.
If that does not work then you need to try a Hard Reset:
Hold Volume Down > press Power > keep holding Volume Down until you see the exclamation (!) screen, then immediately release the Volume Down
Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Down

Currently have a Lumia 720 and maximum time out is 5 mins which does not help with golf GPS apps such as Free Caddy as it locks soon after each shot rather than be free flowing. May upgrade to 735 if 'never' function is available - as it seems to be in a random selection of Lumias.

Answer:Does the Nokia Lumia 735 have a 'Never' option for the Lock Screen Timeout?

It's not a random selection but a ROM limited feature. Some ROM variants have it, some don't. Same could be said about the static IP option in Wi-Fi settings and field test mode. I don't have a 720 myself so can't really tell you which ROM had it enabled but if you managed to find one you can always flash to that ROM to get the lacking features, a phone change is really not needed.

Answer:How do I disable my Nokia Lumia 730 screen after an automatic phone lock?

The lockscreen's purpose is to protect your device from accidentally responding to unwanted touch events (e.g. while carrying the device in one of your pockets). Or - if using a PIN protected lockscreen - to restrict access to the device itself. The reason why the screen goes black/off after a while should be very obvious. It does it to reduce battery consumption.
I'm sure there's no way to disable that.

Hello, I like seeing AM/PM on any time value. I already know if it's AM or PM, but it looks more Proper to see the AM or the PM with whatever time it is.

What Registry modification/Program can help me achieve this?

Thanks

Answer:AM/PM For The Time At The Lock Screen

You can change the time format, how time is shown on Windows notification area freely but AM / PM is regardless of your settings never shown in Windows Clock and lock screen if 24 hour clock has been selected.

To change how time is shown on Windows desktop, select Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Region, click Additional settings:



Now change time formats manually typing any of the following values for short time. Add :ss for long time for seconds:

h:mm
12 hour clock, no leading zero, no AM / PM

h:mm tt
12 hour clock, no leading zero, with AM / PM

hh:mm
12 hour clock, with leading zero, no AM / PM

hh:mm tt
12 hour clock, with leading zero, with AM / PM

H:mm
24 hour clock, no leading zero, no AM / PM

H:mm tt
24 hour clock, no leading zero, with AM / PM

HH:mm
24 hour clock, with leading zero, no AM / PM

HH:mm tt
24 hour clock, with leading zero, with AM / PM

Here I have selected 24 hour clock with AM / PM, but it's only shown in notification area. Opening clock does not show AM / PM, nor does lock screen, whatever settings I have chosen as long as I am using 24 hour clock:



Using 12 hour clock AM / PM is always shown in Clock and lock screen if selected.

Is there any way to keep the lock screen from shutting me down if I don't do anything on the keyboard for a minute or 2 minutes, or whatever it is? I followed some instructions that I found on the internet that involve adding ".bak" or ".backup" to the lock screen file in "SystemApps" but it didn't have any effect. Then I clicked on "Settings" in the Start menu and got totally lost in all that stuff.

Hello, I used to use a reg file for Windows 8.1 to customize the time until the screen turns off during the Lock Screen Time Out. I want to know if that command still applies for Windows 10.

The reg file command is:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Lock Screen]
"SlideshowDuration"=dword:000493e0
(where the screen turns off after 5 minutes).

I have the formula to figure out what you need to calculate to insert after "dword" for the amount of time until the screen times out (goes black). Ask me for the formula... as long as the above works.

Thanks

Answer:Lock Screen Slideshow Time Out

Never mind. I went into the Registry and checked it out.

Yes, the same exact rules apply here like in Windows 8.1

I frequently am logging in and out of my Windows 8.1 laptop. I have a good, secure password that I use and because I'm human, sometimes I mistype it. The issue is that on these occasions, I am locked out for a good 30 seconds from attempting to
login, even for the second time.

I can understand the time delay if it were say, my 5th or 6th attempt, but for one attempt this is entirely too long. How do I go about significantly reducing this, or ideally removing it?

Hello,
First I want to point out that the "Play a slide show on the lock screen" is not the option that I'm looking for, since it remembers the original image that was set for the lock screen after I log back in, or restart the computer.

I am looking for an option that will always load a random picture from a certain folder to appear as my lock screen, every time the lock screen appears.
So for example, I turn on the computer and I see Image #1. I log into my account and after a few minutes I lock the computer. When I lock the computer, I want to see Image #7 as the lock screen. Now I restart the computer. Windows shuts down and starts up again. I am now at the lock screen again. I want to see Image #4. (The reason why those image numbers are like that is because they're random).

So does anyone know of an option in Windows that can do that, or a 3rd party program that can do that?

Thanks so much

There are just 4 icons in the bottom right corner (shut down, accesibility, ethernet...) It sometimes manages to get to desktop, and sometimes not. Not sure what caused it, could be a recent windows update, not sure tho. I ran some HDD scans and everything turned out fine, also did a registry cleanup, tried disabling lock screen, and nothing seems to work. Any suggestions or solutions?

Answer:Windows 10 stuck at lock screen for a long time

Welcome to the TenForums @Taukonza

Could you please review your update history and see if any updates for Windows or Drivers were installed in last week?

You mentioned when you boot. Not sure if this is happening on restart or power on or both. If it is power on booting can I suggest a quick test. Open a command prompt (admin) and type

powercfg -h off

This will disable hibernation and in turn Fast Startup. Test. If no change you can re-enable by typing

powercfg -h on

After you boot have you reviewed your Event Viewer to see if Windows is kicking out any serious errors to the system log?

Hi,

apologies if this has been covered before somewhere else.
I am trying to remove the time and date from the lock screen. having searched I have seen several customisation options but the only one that actually covered this specifically was to make a change in regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SystemProtectedUserData\S-1-5-21-x-x-x-x\AnyoneRead\LocaleInfo

this brought about issues relating to administrator accounts which seem to be a common problem with windows 8.1.
nearly all of the solutions were not available to me but I finally found I could make the change in regedit by changing ownership of the file and changing the format of the time to a space. unfortunately the date is still showing.
how can I remove the date?

further, just to clarify, does the original account I signed in with have full administrator privileges? are they disabled and need to be enabled?
ive seen the tutorial on the built in elevated administrator account, this didn't work on its own either. do some files require a change of ownership to be altered regardless of which account you are signed in with including the administrator account?

any help appreciated

thanks

Brad

Hey guys, I have been having a pretty major dilemma with my computer. So basically:
A few days ago (January 11, 2018), I downloaded the new windows update (forget the name every time ). It was initially working out quite well. Fast forward to like four o' clock, when I leave home for a few hours. I then come back to my computer, awakening it from its sleep, and then the lock screen is utterly broken. It appears as a white screen with red and green (maybe blue too???) lines running to and fro. My cursor as well appeared as a jumbled mess of black pixels. I have been dealing with this dilemma for the past few days (today is January 16 2018 at time of writing), and I have had no luck searching for help. If you have any knowledge of what is happening, or can offer help, then please offer it, that will be wonderful.
EDIT: Oh, forgot to include this, but I have tried a malwarebytes scan (probably at January 12, 2018), but it did not come up with anything important.

It diesnt let me do anything other than look at the battery and the time, just a black screen.

Answer:Lumia 720 with just a black screen with the time on the corner, won't respond, what should I do?

perform a soft reset (hold power button & volume down for 10-15 seconds until phone vibrates), something is chewing up memory.
If that fails, a hard reset is required - Bing or Google search 'Lumia 720 Service manual' - @ the back of it, there's a key combination which will hard reset your phone.
BUT FIRST ... Plug the phone into your PC, (with the supplied cable) to see if you can offload anythingIf you have an sdcard, remove it (after you power the phone OFF) ...

Just for the record, the phone is less than a year old Nokia Lumia 920. It was bought new on the Black update, never even lagged until the Cyan update. It occasionally froze and the app Spotify brought it out more than anything else. Today, the phone screen froze mid-scrolling and wouldn't react to anything. I finally flicked the screen off button and the screen went black, for a second. The place where it's supposed to show the time on the screen was replaced with a one big static rectangle. Needless to say I panicked. Flicked the screen on again and discovered the whole thing is on static now. After a few close-to-heart-attack moments, I did a soft reset on the phone and once it booted up, it showed 2 AM in the morning, 22nd of May, 2014 ( while it was 1.52 PM 28th of September, 2014).
I just really need advice if i can blame this on the Cyan update or is my precious little one broken?

Answer:Nokia Lumia 920 lagging after CYAN update, static screen and incorrect time

Backup everything, then download Nokia Software Recovery Tool and restore the latest rom (cyan) from ground up. This should solve your problems.
You can also first try a softreset, if you would be very lucky that would solve your issues.

Answer:Lumia 920 has a key lock! Never set a key lock on it ever, what can I do?

What is a key lock? Is it asking for a PIN on your lock screen?
No, that doesn't happen by itself, especially on WP8.1, which is a pretty solid OS (compared to W10). EAS can push a requirement for a PIN, but even then, you have to set it first. Not setting a PIN will not allow email configuration. Ask your IT guy if he set one up.
Try these in the following order
1. Go to your microsoft account on your browser, locate your phone, go to find my phone, click lock, select a passcode and lock the phone. This will change the passcode configured on your phone.
2. If the above doesn't work, you have only one option left-to factory reset the phone. You can either do it from the same page as above using the erase option, or use the method below

Well, I have no idea what caused this but the tablet buttons (even the on/off button) the lights for caps lock and scroll lock as well as the automatic screen orientation change when I flip it to be a tablet have stopped working.Also the screen does not turn off anymore when the lid is closed. Reinstalled pretty much all of the drivers, no effect.Any ideas? Is this thing already broken?

Answer:X41 tablet buttons + scroll lock and caps lock lights + screen orientation change stopped working!

well, SOMETHING is broken.. though it would seen unlikely it is hardware.. a question: did you load anything new just before this happened..?anything at all..scanner drivers or printer drivers or a new application..? OH!, welcome to the lenovo community..!
