    Hi everyone,
    I am new here. Got my tablet few days ago and very happy with it, though one problem so far, after all updates, windows etc, the screen shuts down in the sleep mode after only two minutes with no regards to the settings, which may be one hour or five or "never". Does anyone experience the same thing?

    There are two settings sections, Windows settings and Book settings. Under Book settings you can set the time for the auto dimming and smart dimming. I believe that this takes priority over Windows settings because they are concerned about the AMOLED display burning in.

    Neither settings app has any effect on the screen timeout. i have the Book Settings OLED section to timeout set at 10 minutes (the maximum) and the Windows screen set to turn off after 15 minutes. the screen still turns off after a minute or less if I don't tap the screen or keyboard.
