    I have a Surface Pro 3 and am unable to independently set the ‘Turn Off Display After’ and the ‘Put The Computer to Sleep’ settings different from each other when plugged in to power. When I change them and save them to different settings, they both revert back to the same setting the next time I check on them. I would like Turn Off The Display set to 20 minutes and Put the Computer to Sleep set to Never when connected to power.
    Any ideas, thanks in advance.

    Checkout my thread here.


    It's not possible without disabling connected standby. For me, I disable connected standby during the week when it's mostly docked and then I enable it on the weekend when it's not usually docked.

    Thanks for the response, much appreciated. It would be nice if MS would allow you to control the display while leaving Connected Standby on.......

    I know, I'm not sure where the limitation is. I'm hoping it's not hardware limitation to be able to have the ability to keep CS enabled and also be able to turn off the screen. The downside for me is that I have 3 other monitors plugged in and the monitors never go into sleep mode with CS enabled and the device never set to power off/sleep, so they are just burning electricity when they should go in standby mode when the device isn't being used.
